Karrie Knowles has been a Professional Photographer for six years. She started taking photography classes on film and developing them in a dark room. She cherished photography as a hobby and favorite past time for fifteen years capturing everything from landscapes, animals, and her own children and friends. During these years she made the transition from film to digital studying graphic arts and learning how to shoot in manual, find perfect lighting, and develop artistic style and design. She has photographed over 25 weddings, over 300 babies and dozens of families.
I love capturing connections between family members in a way they can cherish forever. Documenting such a close loving bond between parents and children or siblings is very special to me. I also love capturing the face of a baby or child that only the parents see at home. My favorite photos are not always the ones of them smiling. Babies cry, children fool around or get upset, photographing those moments are just as important. Their part of their story.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have photographed everything in the Family Genre. Weddings, Maternity, Newborns, Babies, Children, and High School Seniors. I make each session special by catering it to that particular family. What do they like, what colors will their wardrobe be, what makes them happy, what themes are they interested in, what is their favorite location. You can't treat each session the same because each family and each individual, even a little newborn, is unique.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
