Hi, there! I’m Karen - a boutique family photographer with a special love for babies! 

About Karen

Baby Jackson Jonathan “JJ” was about one month old when we had his session done. After the initial consultation we decided to shoot predominantly in lifestyle with some studio styles included.

JJ arrived 3 weeks early. During tummy time when he was a mere two weeks old, he flipped from his belly to his back! “We can tell he is going to be a strong, determined little boy.”, said proud Mommy Nikki.

JJ and his Mommy Nikki

Jackson is just a name both Nikki and Justin have always liked, and Jonathan is Justin’s twin brother’s name. The couple also thought “JJ” would be a cute nickname. They started thinking of names after they knew the gender, so they did not consider any girls’ names.

The couple moved into this house when Nikki was pregnant with JJ, and they got lucky because his nursery was already painted that nice shade of blue. Nikki loves bright colors, so she thought blue, yellow, and grey would be great colors for the nursery. She loves the cherry blossoms tree decal over the crib and the canvas pictures over the dresser. Both were purchased from Etsy.com. In the corner of the room there is also an ABC cross-stitch that one of Justin’s relatives made before she passed away. Nikki’s mother-in-law cleaned and framed the cross-stitch and gifted it to them at their baby shower.

Advice from Nikki: “I would suggest not planning anything, because if you get too caught up looking at Pinterest for inspiration you might be disappointed if certain poses cannot be duplicated. You also don’t know how your baby will act during the session. The lifestyle session is great because it captures the simple beauties of everyday life. Just be yourselves!”

This image by far receives the most likes on my Instagram.

MuSen: The session was conducted on a peaceful sunny Sunday morning. Abundant sunshine in the house and all photos were taken under natural light. I am blown away by JJ’s nursery design: energetic, bright, colorful, yet balanced with harmony. Every little detail is filled with his Mommy and Daddy’s love. I felt a strong connection while photographing this session and wish I could do more newborn lifestyle in the future.

Session gift for the new Mommy: “It’s a boy” Living Locket look from OrigamiOwl with “JJ” initial charms. Congratulations once more. “A beautiful baby has come to fill your lives with joy and bliss. May all the precious little moments always warm your heart.”

She listened to what type of photos we were looking to achieve and offered suggestions since she is in fact the professional! Karen was always very responsive if I had any questions leading up to the actual photo shoot and was an absolute pleasure to work with the day of our session. Everything went very smooth, and our proofs were delivered very quickly. After the selection process, our final images were delivered also very quickly and looked so amazing. We have received so many compliments and will be using Karen again in the future. I highly recommend MuSen Photography to anyone looking for quality professional photography!

I hired her to do my daughters first birthday party photos and she captured the moment perfectly. I was so pleased with her work I hired her again to do a mother and daughters photo shoot for Mother’s Day. She NAILED IT one of the most beautiful photo shoots I have ever seen. Karen picked the location, lighting, told us how to pose her eye for perfection is beyond words she saw my vision and made it come true. She also was very easy to contact and communicate with. The turn over time to receive the photos was fast and easy. Karen is also very sweet it was truly a pleasure working with her.  I highly recommend her and if perfection is what you seek Karen is definitely the one.  I look forward to working with her again. Thank you so much Karen you rock .

"Karen is absolutely amazing."
