Welcome to the blog!

Hey! If you’re here, you must know that I’ve started a blog. And if you didn’t know before- now you do! I wanted a place where I could go a little more in-depth about my latest photography endeavors! Instagram was getting a little cluttered, so I brought it over here.

Kara in Colorado

If you’re new to my page, let me start by introducing myself! I’m Kara. I’m a photographer based in New York City with a love for people, traveling, climbing, hiking, kayaking, and eating lots of food. Lots. of. food. Originally from the Midwest (O-H-I-O!), I moved to Georgia to attend the Savannah College of Art and Design where I earned a B.F.A. in Photography. I did a few short months in Denver before finally calling the beautiful neighborhood of Astoria, Queens home! I live here with my husband and goldfish Raisin and together, we have a fun little shop called All Good Things. I love being involved in my community, so you’ll find me all over New York- tutoring students at a non-profit, swimming at Astoria Pool, babysitting future city slickers, teaching farming techniques at a local farm, or (most importantly) photographing the local families and small businesses in my city. I spend my days dreaming of the mountains and planning my next big getaway (usually involves a tent and some good hiking shoes).

If you have somebody or something that needs some good photography love, let me know by heading over to my contact page! If you just want to see what I’m up to lately or admire my latest work, follow along!
