Happy New Year! I wanted to take a moment to share a very special session,  these girls and I had a slumber party :) and made some of these props.  One of the girls is a very talented high school photographer and I was thrilled to have her capture a few images of our old lady bulldog and I.  I hope that this new year has started peacefully for each of you.  I am so grateful to continue capturing lots of children and their families, thank you to my incredible clients for making this a heartfelt reality.  For 2017 in order to allow me enough time to focus on each client and family for both Custom Moments and my foundation, Moment by Moment (www.momentbymoment.org) I will be putting new images into the tabs on the website versus blogging, please continue to check in for more creations :) All the best for the coming year, Karen

Tis the season

I wanted to let everyone know how appreciative I am to have the opportunity to again see some families that I have captured in years past…it is surreal how the kids are growing so much! I also love the chance  to meet new families as well!  As the schedule is very busy, tis the season, I will not be blogging each session here but will be putting some images like the following on the website under the various tabs…take a peek :)  & enjoy as we journey into the holidays! All the best, Karen

Holiday sessions are here

Surreal as it is, holiday sessions are being booked (sorry I know it is not even Labor Day but the kids are back in school and plans have began, yikes!)

Such gratitude

I am so appreciative so many things, I want to highlight a few here….I am entering into my 14th year (still surreal to me) of capturing families and I am always so proud to be asked to capture some memories for families.  I am also grateful (although bittersweet) to have captured our youngest son’s senior portraits.

I am still actively booking/shooting sessions and am fortunate to have a full schedule but to allow a bit more family time right now, I will not be blogging sessions until I announce the fall schedule in early August.  Please visit my website for galleries of sample images and I will be back to blogging all sessions soon:) Warm regards, Karen

How wonderful to be able to celebrate a first birthday with your whole family (including a big brother that adores you) and your grandparents too :)
