Hello, my name is Karen and I’m a photographer, wife, & mother. I grew up in Japan (in the city and by the sea), occasionally returning to my state-side home deep in the north Georgia woods. I moved to New York in 2007 to pursue a career in International Business, but a creative life found me shortly after instead. In 2014 I met my husband and changed my base to Missouri, and in 2017 we welcomed our first baby.

I love photographing people in love. Organic, artful photography for people who wear their heart on their sleeve. I'd love to hear from you no matter where you are.

In my spare time, I enjoy art & design, dinner parties with friends, and traveling always. It's so nice to meet you.
