A LITTLE ABOUT CARRIE: I married my college sweetheart. My family is my everything! They are my why! We have twin boys who are quickly approaching their senior year! We have a daughter who rocks our world and an extra chromosome (Down Syndrome)! I’m easy to talk to and love to laugh. I LOVE creating art just for you!
These are my peeps! We have fun doing life together! They are my why!
A FEW FAVORITES: VACATION SPOT: Maui, but I’m up for finding a new favorite! COLOR: Depends on the day and purpose. I tend to wear a lot of black. SWEET TREAT: Dark chocolate all the way! BEVERAGE: Water or my pink drink! FOOD: Home cooking! Nothing beats it! LENS: 70-200mm for seniors or my 24-70mm for families. HEELS OR FLATS: Flats! I’m short and I’m totally ok with it. ENTERTAINMENT: A comedian and laughing until you can’t breathe! CONVENIENCE: My iPhone so I always have a camera with me.
BASED OUT OF GRAND ISLAND, NEBRASKA
WHAT TO EXPECT: EXPECT the unexpected. Your family is like no other and the art created will be uniquely yours.
EXPECT to relax and have fun! I’m never looking through my camera thinking, “I can’t believe they’re posing like that!” Instead, I see family resemblances, similar expressions and beautiful features. Most importantly, I see your precious family! I’ll guide you and make you feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera. I promise!
EXPECT to chat. I love learning about you, your interests, work, school, activities, future plans, family, etc. It’s even better when we discover we have a something or someone in common!

STYLE TIPS: No matter who you are, the most important style tip is to wear clothes that fit; not so tight you can’t move or they are gaping open at the buttons and not so baggy you have no shape. These photos are less about what you wear and more about the people in the photo and their connection to each other. My only request is to avoid the group photo look of white shirts and jeans for everyone or similar themes. If you want that coordinated-without-being-identical look, I have a great Pinterest board for inspiration HERE. Still unsure? I’m always happy to take a look at your options. We can FaceTime, you can message me photos or I can pop over if you are here in town.

FAQs Q: May I have ALL images from my session? A: Yes. I professionally cull your session to remove undesirables. The rest are all yours! Q: Do you edit all of the images in my gallery? A: Yes. Basic edits have been completed on all gallery images. Skin retouching, acne removal, braces removal, head swaps and such can be completed per image for an additional fee. These types of sessions are all about documenting the natural look of your family. Q: Can I make my own prints? A: Yes. Print permission is provided for all purchased sessions with easy links to MPix for printing. Q: Will you travel for a session? A: Yes. Locations within 30 minutes are included at no charge with purchase of all full session. I will happily travel further but additional fees will apply. Q: What methods of payment can you accept for my retainer and balance? A: Cash or good check or I’ll invoice you conveniently and securely for each through PayPal Me. Q: What do you mean by lifestyle images? A: Good question! Traditional portraits have the subject looking at the camera and smiling. We’ll capture those as well as those life-inspired moments you treasure such as hugs, kisses, giggles, the way they interact, their hair as they run, the way they fit perfectly in your lap and even those teenage eye rolls when I ask them to give their mom a big kiss on the cheek!
