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

About Karen

In Home Lifestyle Newborn Baby Girl Session

I was super excited when Nikki contacted me for an in-home newborn session. Nikki hired me two years ago for her son JJ’s newborn session. That session left me with such a strong memory. One image from that session remains one of my most loved creations at all times!

“We returned because we loved our shots from our first session and you were so patient with our newborn. The pictures came out great.” – Nikki

Nikki and Justin chose not to find out the baby’s gender this time.

“My Mom said she was surprised for me and my siblings, so we wanted to try it. I did have a feeling it was a girl, though.” – Nikki

They name the baby Naomi because their son’s name Jackson (JJ) has the same initial as Justin. So Nikki wanted their baby girl’s name to begin with “N”. They also loved “Mimi” as a nickname for Naomi.

JJ, the tiny baby boy in my newborn session 2 years ago, is now a big brother!

“We do feel more relaxed overall as second time parents. For this session, although we definitely wanted some newborn solo shots of just Naomi, we were also really looking forward to having shots of just the kids, and all of us as a new family of four.” – Nikki

He has his own “excavator dance”!Justin home brews and names his beer after the kids! – “Double J Craft” and “Mimi’s Malt”Naomi – the family got a 90-gallon fish tank, and Naomi loves to watch the fish swim. Nikki was a Peace Corps volunteer in Morocco from 2013-2015.

One tip Nikki would like to share with families taking newborn session that involves a toddler sibling, is that plan the session when you know your toddler will be in the best mood and not tired or cranky!

Although the session is mostly planned as lifestyle, at the end, I did have time to include a few studio style pictures.

The 5×7 Wood Image Box with slide open lid and custom designed cover is my most popular newborn session gift.

“They look great on display in our living room, and we love that they are functional boxes with our photoshoot pictures inside.” – Nikki

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."
