The human-animal connection

I find that people are more relaxed when their pet is by their side. For starters, it gives them something to do with their hands, so they feel less awkward. Dogs also do unpredictable things – like lick you on the face! Animals produce more genuine smiles than any dumb joke I can tell.

Let’s talk about retouching. I aim to make people look well-rested versus Joan Rivers after her 100th facelift. I generally remove things that aren’t permanent, like a scratch or blemish. If it’s permanent, like a mole, I leave it. It would be weird if someone retouched out Cindy Crawford’s mole, right? Often people say I took the best photo of them they’ve seen in years. So, don’t be afraid of getting in front of my camera!

“Karen has an amazing photographic eye! She was amazing with our two young children and two young dogs. The quality of her photographs, album and framed canvas portrait are outstanding. I highly recommend Karen to photograph all of your furry friends!”


“Karen captured wonderful photos of both our rescue pups and us. Somehow she managed to capture their personalities, us smiling, and the beautiful scenery in the background ALL at the same time. A feat my husband and I can never manage.”
