I've never been very comfortable in front of the camera. Which probably explains why I spend so much time behind it...
So, what to say in my "about" page? It's harder than you'd think to write one of these. Considering whenever I go visit someone's website, the first place I stalk is their "about" page, I'm well aware that what I write here could make or break your opinion of me. So yeah, no pressure or anything.
First things first...hello. Welcome. I'm glad you've stopped by, make yourself at home. I'm Carrie. I'm a mom, I'm a wife, and I'm a photographer, obviously.
I started getting into photography in 2010 when I was working with companies all across the country doing food and product photography. Working with businesses of all sizes from large corporations to small family businesses to start up companies was a fantastic opportunity. It gave me something to do while my kids were small but didn't take up too much of my time. Then, my kids got bigger. They didn't need my attention quite as much so I was looking for something to occupy my time while they were away at school or busy doing their own thing. I decided to give portrait photography a try and see where it took me. I never expected to love it as much as I do.
I love working with people I've known for many years and people I've only just met. I love making them feel at ease so we can produce stunning portraits of them at their best. I love how we may start off the process as strangers but finish as friends. This process has allowed me to meet and spend time with so many amazing people, all while clicking away on my camera, who I affectionately refer to as my third baby.
So, thank you for stopping by my corner of the internet. If you can questions, reach out to me through my contact page and we'll set up a time for me to give you a call...I'm excited to chat with you about your next portrait session!
