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

About Karen

80th Birthday Family Outdoor

I haven’t blogged for a whole year! The pandemic has brought a new norm to everyone. I appreciate the fact that life has slowed down just a bit and definitely took advantage of it. Now I am back to full speed, I want to resume my blog with this session that was taken one year ago.

This session means a lot to me. They contacted me in January last year wanting pictures to be done in early Spring to celebrate Mom (Jan)’s 80th birthday. The session was rescheduled 3 times due to COVID. Finally, we were able to do it in June – my very first session after NJ re-opened and allowed non-essential businesses to offer services.

They decided to keep the session small and only include Mom the the “kids”, no grand-kids or great grand-kids (you will know why)

We had tons of laughs and a great time during the photoshoot.

When I asked what is their favorite activity during a family reunion, their response was “laughing until our stomachs hurt”! We wrapped up the session with a fun pose. If you asked me what is one good thing that happened since the start of the pandemic, I would say we all have learned who and what matters to us most.

Planning your next family reunion? Get a photoshoot done to document those precious memories. Contact me now for your initial consultation. Jan and her family appreciate very much that I was very helpful in providing suggested locations based on previous work which made the decision process easier.

“This experience doesn’t need to be stressful, Karen allows the family to enjoy themselves and have fun.”

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."
