Hi There

Hi there - I'm Cara! I am a West Michigan photographer specializing in family, maternity, and newborn photography. I love capturing real life, real connections, and real personalities; focusing on the details that make your family uniquely you.  I have created a session experience that is easy, stress-free, and dare I say, ENJOYABLE?!

You will leave your session with new memories and photos to cherish for a lifetime.


I am a mom to two boys. Ages 8 and 6.

My family is my number one inspiration. 

These sweet boys created my true love for photography. I've been snapping photos my whole life (and was even my high school yearbook photo editor), but after becoming a mom, I knew I wanted to capture all the special moments in a beautiful way. 


The great outdoors. 

I love to have warmth, texture and depth in my photos. I feel that shooting outdoors really brings photos to life. I love a good in-home, snuggle session, but my favorite photographs typically happen outside. 



I am always inspired by photographs that capture connection between the subjects, or photographs that can tell me a story without using any words.
