This is a photo of my inspiration for CarisaK Photography, my muse, my first baby, and my heart dog, Olive. She and I had to part in 2012 when she was just shy of her 13th birthday. It is because of the her that I want to document everyone’s special and amazing animal companions. They are members of the family too. *I’m also 36 weeks pregnant with my first human child in this photograph, captured by Brian Kozicki.

Storybook Sessions capture more of your everyday with your family and loved ones!

Storybook Sessions capture more of your everyday with your family and loved ones!


Hello!  I'm a lover of value-driven relationships, all dogs, swing dancing, reading, writing fiction, Ayn Rand and Objectivism, a dry Prosecco, garden flowers, snow days, autumn leaves, adventures, and of course photography.

I have been a full time professional photographer since 2005, but I purchased my first camera for $30 when I was 9 years old. I told my family I was going to be a professional photographer when I grew up.

I also owned a successful pet sitting business before becoming a full time photographer. I believe that all animals and humans should be treated with care, kindness, and respect. I believe in conscious and respectful parenting for both my human and animal kids. Sessions should be fun, easy, and without stress.
