Hi, i’m Carrie!
I’m a wedding and portrait photographer based out of Southern California. I have 2 kids, both boys, who keep me quite busy! I love to laugh, even if it’s at myself. I’m a part time hairstylist. I love Starbucks. Like….LOVE Starbucks, the smell walking through the door makes me happy. I love to lift weights, but I also love to eat…bad combo. Pink is my favorite color. I’m addicted to my phone, but you will get a text reply from me 100x faster than a phone call. Hey, we all have our weaknesses ;) I’m super competitive. I love to shop. I collect Nike’s :) I type smiley faces way too much. I love old school rap, my kids are super impressed when I bust out Ice Ice baby. I love to be out and about. I have a Bachelor’s degree, and 2 jobs that have nothing to do with it. I’m a hairdresser, work in the salon a few days a week. It comes in handy with brides and veils! I’m always busy! Sometimes I take on too much, but somehow it always gets done!
I get asked all the time how long i’ve been doing photography, and I never quite know the answer. My love of photography started when I was young, but really took off after my oldest son was born in 2007. I wanted to remember every little moment! Now here I am 9 years later, and i’m hoping some day the kids thank me for the huge collection of iPhone photos, and their own personal hashtag, haha! Ok ok, they do still get pictures on my camera, they just rarely get edited….but I have them, and someday! ;)
I’m thankful every day for a job that I love! I’m thankful for the people photography has brought into my life, and for the many clients who have become friends. There is so much joy in photographing my clients as their families grow. I love what I do, and I hope that it shows when we get to know each other!
