Karen's journey behind the lens began as a child experimenting with black & white film in her parent's basement darkroom. In college the adventure continued as she began documenting her travels, which have taken her to many fascinating places around the globe.

Arriving in Los Angeles in 1993, Karen worked in the entertainment industry gaining valuable experience both in front and behind the camera. Since 1998 she has been a national television spokesperson and representative for Canon Cameras, educating consumers on Canon’s digital image-making products.

Karen has worked with National Geographic, USA Network, Fox Sports and other prominent production companies. She has written for, and contributed to, various newspapers and magazines. Her work has been exhibited in art galleries in Los Angeles. Assignments have taken her around the globe; from galloping camelback through the desert among the pyramids of Egypt, to trekking to the top of Machu Picchu's tallest peak, to living deep in the rainforests of Borneo with a tribe of headhunters.

Karen’s deep love of family and children naturally lead her into family photography. With nine nieces and nephews (and counting) she has had years of experience shooting photos preserving the memories of pregnancy, parenthood and the wonders of childhood.

Her passion for kids has lead her to assist numerous children’s causes. In 1999 she produced a film honoring teens battling cancer. In 2001 she served as a Rotary Peace Ambassador in India where she represented Los Angeles and the film industry; traveling for five weeks to clinics, orphanages and schools throughout the country. In 2005 she helped create a live show to benefit the orphaned children who were victims of Hurricane Katrina.

Karen recently married and moved from Los Angeles to North County San Diego where she has re-launched her family photography business. She also continues to write and shoot for various publications and is working on authoring her first book, which is based on her real-life story about attracting your soulmate and getting married within a year.
