I want to take all our best moments, put them in a jar, and take them out like cookies and savor each one of them forever.

Hi everyone, Karen here, so glad you found me here.
My working life has been in the accounting field having qualified from University with a degree in Accounting and Business Studies. I then went on to train professionally as an accountant (yes I know, yawn). Several years ago I came to the realisation that I needed more creativity in my life and started investing my spare time in photography equipment and courses and it opened up a new and very exciting world, which I truly love. Creating precious memories for people whether it is someones wedding or family life is something really special and dear to my heart.
I have now been happily married to my husband for 18 years and have two teenage children. We live in Surrey, close to the River Thames and Wey.
A child of the 60’s (well just about!). I love anything creative from watercolours to of course photography. If I am not taking photos you’ll usually find me editing them, listening to my favourite music or watching Netflix. I just love chilling with my family in the evenings.
I just enjoy learning new things, this has lead me toward many varied interests – the passion for each is often very intense, but often short-lived. Photography though I have found to be very different, it has outlasted all the others and kept me interested. There are just so many skills, genres and philosophies for me to explore and this has so far proven to be inexhaustible!
Having been around for a while now, I am very certain of one thing; I love seeing photos of my kids that are not posed, being more documentary in style, telling the story of our life. From the sad moments to the happy moments and all those bits in between. I also enjoy seeing pure emotions, not forced smiles. I find everyone is more comfortable wearing what they want, doing what they normally do and just being themselves.
“Photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place. It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with how you see them”
