We used her services for our wedding photos and could not be happier with the end product! Super nice, professional, and reasonably priced. What more could you ask for? I would recommend her to anyone looking to get professional photos done More...

Karen is my family's go-to photographer when we need any professional photos. Her pictures of our family are in every room of our house. She has always been patient and professional with an amazing eye for lighting and detail. I couldn't be happier with the many moments she's captured for us. We will be hiring her again and again.

Karen made our wedding day! So amazing to work with, incredibly professional and knows exactly what she is doing. If you are looking for an amazing photographer in the Milwaukee area, I HIGHLY recommend her!


The secret to taking a great photograph is capturing feeling. If you can feel the love, happiness, the laughter, or even the sadness, then that's the mark of a great photograph.

I like to understand what is important to the client, their style, and what they are looking for out of the photo session.

I love having the privilege to capture the most important memories of my clients' lives and hearing their reactions when they receive their final edited images.

I love what I do. When I first started learning photography, I didn't really know where I wanted to take it, but eventually I realized that I get the most joy out of sharing and providing beautiful images for others. I love to make people happy, and this is a very enjoyable way to do that.

I consider myself an artist in this business, and I treat my work like an art form. I obsess over every detail of every photo, so clients can rest assured they are getting a professional, premium product from me. At the same time, I know how to be a professional, so communication, courtesy, and timeliness are second nature to me.
