Carolyn and her son ElliottI love love. I know; how corny, right?! But it’s true – I seriously weep when I see it in others. Like when I used to watch a Baby Story on TLC and would sob when the babies were delivered. I love the way mothers look at their children; the way children nestle into their parents; the way new parents behave with their first-born babies. This is what life’s all about – these moments of connection that allow us to be vulnerable and yet pass so quickly.

I started my photography career in NYC 10 years ago, went to the International Center of Photography, and managed several commercial studios. I loved being on set…the hair, the makeup, the lighting…it was exhilarating and a lot of hard work. The experience of working with Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom and Harper’s Bazaar was unreal and I’m so lucky to have had the chance to learn from some of the industry’s best photographers.

Most days you’ll find me retouching and editing while singing loudly to music or listening to podcasts and audiobooks. This little fella in his birthday suit is my son and he means the world to me (this is my favorite photo of all time). We go on dates around Philadelphia and he helps me scout new locations for cool photo shoots. I love snowboarding, doing yoga, meditating, and kombucha. Oh! I also LOVE sleeping – always have, always will!

I look forward to finding out what you love most about your family!

Carolyn xo
