Selecting the right portrait photographer is one of the single most enduring choices you'll ever make.  I'm grateful for your consideration.  I welcome the opportunity to learn about you as an individual and to execute the vision for your art.

I aim to serve clients who value a high-touch personal experience, who recognize magazine-quality artistry, and who wish to own exquisite, hand-crafted goods.

I'm a people person! I describe myself as vivacious, open, and warm. I share an indelible part of myself in every image I create and with every client I serve. You will become a part of me as well. For this reason, a good personality fit matters.

With a B.A. from the University of Michigan and study at the Sorbonne (Université Paris I), I've worked, lived, and studied in New York, Paris, and Chicago.  I reside in South Lyon, MI  with my husband, son and offer my services worldwide.

The first step to working together is an in-person (or virtual) conversation
and a custom quote.   Be in touch so we can learn more about one other.
Lifestyle Documentary experiences include
a 10x10 custom album with 75 - 100 black & white edited portraits

"Karen has photographed our family for years.   The images have been absolutely breathtaking.   Karen has a keen eye and her photos capture light in different ways which make each picture a masterpiece on its own.   The senior pictures of my children were unique and we received many, many compliments. With her photos, she has also created the most beautiful holiday cards and invitations for our family.   Karen is a gifted photographer who can take the simplest setting and turn it into the most beautiful picture.   I highly recommend Karen and promise you will not be disappointed.   She is 'the best'."


With 16 years experience serving literally THOUSANDS of clients, I blend precision technical expertise with an artistic eye to create clean, consistent magazine-quality imagery.

I capture the big, sweeping moments, as well as the quiet conversations.

I'm a film-look digital photographer, working with professional Canon equipment and a full suite of L-series lenses.  My signature editing aesthetic is best described as soft, interior, timeless, and romantic.

I love people and I make friends everywhere I go, whether it be on a crowded train through Turkey or in a buttoned-up private club in Paris.  I love intimate dinner parties and conversation late into the night.  I love discovering who you are and your vision of the world.  We may not meet face-to-face until the eve of your wedding day, but we'll surely be old friends by then.

Thank you for the opportunity to do my life's love and work.  I look forward to serving you and telling your love story as art.
