Hey y'all

It's Kara Lee

Girl Mom· Flea Marketer · OLD SOUL

Born and raised in Southern Indiana. I have deep roots in my home town of Orleans. I have a huge love for historic homes and interior design. The need for a permanent place to call home lead our family of 5 to take our biggest leap yet and purchase an 1894 Farmhouse known around here as "The Stetson House"

I've always thrived on creativity and individuality. Why fit in when you were born to stand out?

My goal? To create moving and emotional quality images every single time.

quote I live by

"When I was five years old, my mother told me happiness was the key to life. When I went to school they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down "happy".
They told me I didn't understand the assignment, and I told them they didn't understand life."
-John Lennon

What's my shooting style?

Some of my favorite photos are those when clients are not looking at the camera but in a genuine moment with those they love most. I love a sweet profile of a child's face or capturing a mother’s smile at the exact moment her kids kiss her cheeks. We also make sure to take the time to get those perfect everyone looking and smiling at the camera photos. Perfect for hanging above the mantle.

 

I like to use the words rich and dreamy when describing my editing style. I like my colors deep but with a creaminess that makes my images feel like an absolute dream. I strive for my client’s eyes to be tack sharp but with a richly blurred background. If you are hoping to see every detail in the background of your image, I’m probably not your girl. I love images that highlight the person in them. If you want to see and feel every tiny detail of your child’s beautiful eyes, you have arrived at the perfect place! Have an unwanted pimple, birthmark, or blemish? No problem. I smooth the skin in every image I deliver to give you that perfect understated glow.

 

When it comes to galleries I prefer to keep them smaller. Most Galleries are between 30-50 images. I have always been a firm believer in quality over quantity in almost everything in life. I spend a great deal of time doing the heavy lifting for you by picking out the perfect images for your gallery. 

 

As strange as it sounds, over the years I’ve realized I have “shooting personality”

 

What’s a shooting personality?

 

Well it’s a term I’ve created to explain why in my day to day life I am an anxious, over thinking, worrier but when I’m behind the camera everyone describes me as calm, easy going, making it seem effortless.  I guess the best way to explain this is photography is my safe place, where I don’t think, I just, do.
