Pets & their


You know how hard it is to take a flattering selfie with your pet because you’ve probably tried. Relax and let me photograph you with your pet!

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 like Joan Rivers after her 100th facelift. I generally get rid of 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 took pictures of our two puggles and our daughter. She is an amazing photographer! Very professional, friendly, and patient. We were blown away with the final product. If you’re looking some get some quality photos of your loved ones look no further. We can’t say enough good things about her work.”


“Karen was amazing with Sashi (our 3 1/2 yo Portuguese Water Dog who tends to be a bit A.D.D.). She was able to get many adorable photos of her – and also with us! Charming, beautifully professional, really knows what she’s doing, prompt and fun to work with.”
