Hello, my name is Karen and I'm a photographer, creative and adventurer. 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.
I love exploring our world and photographing people in love. Organic, artful photography for people who wear their heart on their sleeve. Since 2014, my base has changed to Missouri. I'd love to hear from you no matter where you are.
In my spare time, I enjoy art & design, dinner parties with friends, exploring and adventuring always. It's so nice to meet you.
