Life through a view finder

Meet carmen

I’m always surrounded by family and friends and I can’t help but look around me and see a life in pictures. I love spending time with my three kids exploring and finding new and beautiful places for photoshoots. I enjoy being outdoors exploring what nature has to offer and breathing in the fresh air. 

I grew up as a military brat, always traveling every few years. I was able to experience many different cultures and have acquired friends from many different countries. I also served in the military and took my camera everywhere I could.

Photography has been a part of my life since high school. My mom and dad gave me their old Yashica FX-103 film camera to shoot with and I kept that camera my whole life. Many cameras have come and gone since, but I still take that one out every now and then for a shoot. I feel like those old cameras have memories of every beautiful thing they have ever shot. 

There is nothing I'd rather be doing than taking a great photo, I feel like that is my purpose. I want to show people the beauty I see and draw those smiles out from within.

This is your big day, whether it's your Wedding, Engagement, or a simple family session, I know how important this is for you and I'm here to add to that day. A great photo is more than just a click of a button, it captures your perfect moment, a freeze frame in time that is unique because it is so fleeting. No two photos are the same, just as no two moments are.

I understand the emotions and butterflies that come to you during your session. It's my job to not only capture that perfect moment, but put you at ease and bring joy to your experience with my kindness.
