Hi, I’m Kara*!

portrait of the best Denver family photographer

You're realizing you're never in the photos with your kids. And when you are - ooof - they're just not good.

As a top Denver newborn and family photographer with 19 years of professional photography experience, I aim to capture you in a way you never knew you wanted.

The love bursting out of you as you snuggle your newborn, your children's distinct personalities and the fun, craziness of your life right now. My goal is to help you every step of the way - from hair, makeup and family wardrobe guidance to your final image choices.

I live in Denver's Platt Park neighborhood with my husband, three young kids and puppy.

If you want a truly AMAZING photographer look no further! Kara is your girl!!

She truly has a gift of capturing precious moments in time that you will look back on with such great joy. Kara has taken photos of our family multiple times now and each time I see one of her pictures hanging in my house or looking through an album, I smile.

She has a way of working with families that seems so natural and effortless. I remember our first session with Kara and how nervous I was that she didn't get any good shots because our kids were acting a little cranky. I was blown away by how many stunning and creative pictures she took in spite of the chaos.

I seriously wanted to order every single picture. Not only is she a great photographer but she is highly professional. She is an excellent communicator and her turn around time for pictures is quick. Can't recommend her enough!
