FRom the year 2021

My Daughter was super nervous getting her Senior pictures taken, but Kara did a great job putting her at ease. She got the BEST smiles out of her as well. What an awesome experience!

TRESSA MEEUWES- JENISON 2023

Kind Words From Past Seniors

We love and appreciate the time Kara took getting to know us. She is very genuine and it is an important piece that is translated in her work. We are also drawn to the way she uses light from the time of day you are scheduled to where you are posed - she is meticulously talented in making the best shot.

Kind Words From Past Seniors

STEP ONE:
LET's BE FRIENDS

Let's face it. There are so many photographers to choose from for your senior portraits. For me, I like to have clients that don't just come and go. I love getting to know you, follow you on social media, and become friends that last more than your session. If this is something you want in a photographer then let's start this process.

Up Next: Save The Date

STEP TWO:
SAVE THE DATE

My dates fill up quickly so when you're ready to put a date on the calendar that's when you'll want to reach out. My weekends are mostly filled with weddings and family time so I covet those. In order to book Friday-Sunday I have an up charge but that doesn't always mean it's available. Put a couple dates on your contact form that work for you. Also note that I love to capture clients outdoors 2-3 hours before sunset for the best light. If you're choosing a studio option then mid day is best.

STEP THREE:
OUTFITS & TIMELINE

Once we’re a couple days out from your session, we’ll start making sure that we’re completely prepared and ready for each location we've discussed together! This enneagram 3 photographer likes to plan so that we have as much sun as possible. Knowing which outfits you have prior to our time together will help maximize your session. Simply text me your outfits the week before your session and I can help with pointers. Don't forget the shoes and accessories!

Up Next: Your Session

STEP fOUR:
your SESSION

It’s here! It’s time to celebrate, relax and let us get to work! I believe in telling the full story of my seniors and so I prefer 1-2 hours so I can get to know you while capturing these moments. One of my favorite parts of the session is the time I get to know you and become fast friends. After the session, you’ll be featured on the KH Blog! I like to share seniors soon after your session. Anywhere between one to two weeks to keep you from waiting. Make sure you fill out your questionnaire with as much information as possible.

The Process

Up Next: Books and Your Gallery

STEP FIVE:
Books & GALLERY

After your session is over, you will receive an online gallery within one to two weeks full of all of your memories! I encourage my KH Seniors to sit down the night that their gallery goes live and enjoy reliving the moments of your year. In your gallery you'll also receive a 5 spread (10 pages) book proof that you can have printed. What better way to remember your senior year with your own book of images.
