About Cara

I can still remember sitting in the small, dark closet rolling my film, the distinct smell of developer, and the process it took to take an image from camera to the drying rack. This was just 15 years ago. Today photography has evolved into a whole new art with the digital era. Despite the leaps and bounds it has made, there are still so many aspects that remain the same.

I will always be grateful for my time with film, it taught me so much that a digital camera will never be able to. This past year I have added the fine art of film back to my portfolio work. I dare you to try to compete with the color, detail, tones, etc that only film offers. It truly is a completely different art. So, at most sessions you will find me wearing more than one camera, shooting both digital and film.

My experience started back in high school, taking many photography courses, which then brought me to college with a desire to pursue photography as a career. I jumped back and forth between art photography and photojournalism, not feeling content in either one. Come to find out my passion is bringing these two together. My desire is to photograph your day as the story unfolds. Capturing those moments in a way that is pleasing to the eye.

Believe it or not, I am a wife and mother to all red heads! National Geographic has reported that red heads were on their way to extinction...not in this family! I am a full-time mom and full-time photographer. It's the best of both worlds. I am so grateful for each one of them and their sacrifice in allowing me to pursue this passion of mine. When I'm not shooting, I am either packing school lunches, folding laundry, on a field trip, or at the gym. Though we are Texans at heart, we are so incredibly blessed to raise our family in the beautiful mountains of Vail Valley Colorado!
