Hey there! I'm Karen, A Greenwich, CT's based family photographer and chief memory-catcher. My photographic journey began in the wild and wonderful South Africa, where I learned to snap shots faster than a cheetah on a good day (and also to avoid lions photobombing family picnics).
After a 15-year stint in the UK (where I mastered the art of photographing in the rain), I found my way to Greenwich. It's been three years, and I'm proud to say I can almost find my way around without a GPS!
Photography for me is all about capturing the real, unscripted moments of family life. You know, like when your toddler decides that mid-photo shoot is the perfect time for a meltdown, or when the family dog steals the show with its perfect, camera-ready pose.
My photography style? Think of it as a delightful blend of candid moments, spontaneous laughter, and the occasional dad joke to loosen up the stiffest of poses. As a mom, I understand that family photoshoots can be as unpredictable as a game of Monopoly - fun, chaotic, and always memorable.
Whether we're in your backyard, at a local park, or in your cozy living room, I'm there to capture the magic of your family's everyday extraordinary moments. And don't worry, I come prepared with a joke arsenal to make even the most camera-shy kids (and dads!) crack a smile.
So, let's join forces to create family portraits that are as fun and unique as your family - goofy grins, wiggly toddlers, and all!
Looking forward to capturing your family's laughter (and maybe the occasional eye roll),
Karen de Sousa
