Hi there, I’m Karyn, and I’m a birth photographer living in the beautiful city of Vancouver, WA (just north of Portland, OR). First and foremost, I am a wife and a mother to four beautiful children. My family is the inspiration in my life and they motivate me to be the best version of myself that I can be. Being a mama is the heart and soul of my life, so it makes sense that the moments I feel so drawn to capturing would be those surrounding this amazing journey of growing and bringing new life into the world.
I never realized the true importance of this work until I looked through the photos of the birth of my second. It evoked powerful emotions and brought me to tears. I was ecstatic to be able to have those photos to look back on anytime I wanted, but it also made me feel a bit sad. I didn’t have maternity, birth, or newborn photos done with my first. Those moments are locked in my head and my heart forever, but nothing can take the place of a tangible recording of that period of my life.
As a photographer I am passionate about documenting the pure essence of the sacred moments in your family’s life. From the last weeks of pregnancy to your newborn’s first precious few days, I want to give you the opportunity to cherish special moments forever! It’s not just about a pretty picture; it’s about finding the soul of a moment so that you can relive those memories as many times as you want.
I would be honored to capture your story. Contact me and we’ll chat.
