Those are my favorites.

Those in-between moments. A scrunched-up nose, dad’s authentic laugh, a soft embrace.

I’ve always had a passion for photography. When my husband bought me my first camera in 2019, I couldn’t put it down. It is my joy to capture special moments, ordinary moments, small moments, and everything in between. I strive to capture the moments that happen naturally that make up the memories you will hold on to for generations - the love in an expectant mother’s eyes as she dreams of the future with her little one, the giggle between the newly engaged because they can’t hold their joy in any longer, the spontaneous dance party amidst a young family because when they are all together, they dance. 

Cincinnati Photographer for Families, Couples, & Seniors

I am married to my high school sweetheart, Alex, and we have been together for 13 years. Our mini Goldendoodle, Dunkin - yes, after the coffee - is our everything. Although I have a Doctorate degree in Physical Therapy, I have found my truest fulfillment in documenting the life and love of families and couples through photography. 


Hi, I'm Kari

When I am not behind the camera, I like to bargain shop, attend craft shows, go antiquing, spend time at our farm, and grab drinks with friends. I am addicted to Dunkin’ iced coffee, and instead of hunting for new shows to watch, I opt for watching the same ones over and over again. 

A Little More About Me

 I don’t know that words can express the talent within Kari when she is behind the camera- she is an artist. Kari was professional, kind, and accommodating to make our vision better than we could have imagined. She perfectly captured our love story in a way that was natural and highlighted our personalities. She is so encouraging and made us feel comfortable throughout the session."

 "One of the best decisions I made this year was hiring Kari to photograph our engagement.

Three toddlers is a lot and she made the session feel seamless & FUN! She was playing with them the whole time and got so many genuine smiles from all three. We were SO impressed and will definitely use her again! Cannot recommend her enough!"

"I would describe Kari as the most patient photographer that’s ever worked with my kids.

My experience working with Kari was wonderful. I didn’t know what to expect going into the session for my senior photos, as I normally feel awkward having my picture taken. Kari made me feel so comfortable during my session and I just had so much fun. The pictures she took were beautiful. They made me feel so confident. I can’t wait to work with her again in the future!"

Family pictures can be SO stressful. Between finding a date where everyone is free, picking out outfits, and getting tiny humans plus yourself ( and husband 😉) ready it can feel like A LOT. Kari makes the process so smooth from booking to day of the shoot. She brings such laid back and fun energy while also remaining totally professional and personable all at the same time. We absolutely love working with her and cannot wait to book our next session!"
