A Note From Kara: "I have loved photography since I was a child - I built a camera for Girl Scouts when I was 10 years old. My adult photography journey began in 2013 when I purchased my first DSLR camera and attended every class Dee offered. I have a drive to learn and hope to take all my experiences with Dee as an Assistant and transition into a more active role as a Photographer."


Kara is truly the best - She is a diligent and upbeat Photographer who cares about every aspect of your photoshoot. She makes you feel at ease and ensures all the details are just right - she is a perfect blend of heart and skill! We're so glad to have her on our team - it's worth the drive just to meet Kara!
