Sessions are scheduled in one-hour increments, allowing plenty of time for a variety of poses. Our location has a spacious studio with a wide variety of backgrounds from which to choose. Soft window lighting is also utilized. In addition, our beautiful garden offers many possibilities for different outdoor settings. Each portrait possesses its own unique look. Our studio attempts to photograph as much as possible during the time allotted. We plan to photograph a variety of combinations. We love to show relationships between family members interacting with one another, in addition to more traditionally posed portraits.


Proper clothing is important for the success of a portrait sitting. We suggest solid clothing, (no patterns), medium to longer sleeves for teenagers and adults, and colors that match the tonal range of the background you are choosing. Carolyn has a collection of white dresses and small white boys' outfits for mom’s looking for off-season white clothes. With outdoor sittings, the best clothing is white, light solids, or medium grays or blues. All family members should blend together so that the focus is on the faces and not the clothing. Small children should be barefoot.

  • Testimonials:

    “As first time parents, Bryson’s first portraits were so important to Rich and I. We couldn’t have been happier with the exquisite photos. Carolyn made the entire experience a pleasure!”

    R. Dye    

    “Both times that Carolyn has photographed our family we have been extremely happy with the results. Carolyn has a great ability to bring out the best in my children. Our family and friends ooh’d and aah’d over our portraits and Christmas cards. I’ve received many compliments on how beautiful my children are which is at least, in part, a result of Carolyn’s photography.”

    C. Czabala    

    “I really enjoyed my studio time with Carolyn and her associate. In my three experiences, all with one or both of my young children, I found the atmosphere to be very comfortable and she worked well with us to get the best images possible. I LOVED the end results and will cherish the photographs! Everyone who sees them raves and wants to know who I worked with.”

    C. Stephens-Walker    

    “We have been extremely pleased with the quality of Carolyn's work and her ability to capture our children's personalities in print. We treasure the beautiful black and white photographs of Jasmine (3 yrs.) and Riley (11 mos). Carolyn's patience, flexibility and creativeness allowed us to turn concepts into art.”
