Meet Kara


Hi I’m Kara, I’ve been keeping it real since 1985. I’m a small town photographer and creator with big dreams. I’m obsessed with coffee, my dog, and supporting my family in whatever way I can.

Most days you’ll find me, sitting on the couch with a smile on my face watching the latest Netflix series with my dog Phoebe in my lap –or maybe you’ll find me laughing it up with the family as we crack jokes together. I’m always ready to go on the next adventure wherever it may be. I’m a crafter, candle maker, photographer, and Thai food consumer. I’m passionate about the next generation of leaders and for the past two years I took a break from photography to explore these passions full force. I’m now back to photography and mom life full time.

Some of you might not know this but I also run another small business, Hanes Home Market. We have two local booth locations, Rustic Corner in Jenison, MI and a pop up boutique at Inn at the Alpine in Onekema, MI.
