Our experience with Caryn could not have exceeded our expectations more. She is extremely professional, patient and kind. Every concern or question we had was always met with respect and support. She is extremely thoughtful about how she captures your experience, and we could not have been happier with the outcome. Caryn does amazing work and commits whole heartedly to making sure what you envision is what you get. We could not have had a better experience before, during and after working with her. We have beautiful photos that we are able to share with family and friends and they are well worth the investment to capture some of the most life changing moments and incredible journey your family goes through.

I loved how easy Caryn made everything and her willingness to take the time to answer all of our questions. I loved how much time she gave us. We felt truly valued and appreciated and that she was putting the time into working to get us the images that we would treasure for the rest of our lives. I also LOVE how upbeat and positive she is. She made us (especially me) so comfortable which is so important, especially given that she was going to be in the room while I was giving birth, one of the most (if not the most) intimate things I can imagine.
Caryn has the most kind heart and an eye for the beauty that exists in the world but more importantly the beauty that exists the cycle of life – pregnancy, birth, newborns and families. She has a way of capturing this beauty which creates the most spectacular memories for families to treasure for the rest of their lives and to pass down to the next generation. Caryn makes doing business with her easy. She makes her clients feel like they are her only client. She gives herself to her profession and that is evident in the stunning images that she creates.

I am so overwhelmed with emotions right now! All the photos are amazing, so well captured and edited. Thank you so much for everything you’ve done. As I said before, your positive attitude helped a lot! :) Both [my husband] and I loved each and every photo you took…

“I have enormous admiration, respect and gratitude for Caryn and her work as a birth photographer. She captures all of the most profound and intense and amazing moments during labor, birth and the immediate postpartum period with such precision, grace and perfection. Her energy is LOVELY – she exudes warmth and caring. She fades into the background as she does her work — all of us, including the birthing mother, hardly know she is there. And then, she delivers a photo montage that is so beautiful, so artful, so incredible, that we are all moved to tears. I wish that all of my birthing mothers would give themselves the gift of Caryn so they could bear witness through her talent to their own power, strength, focus, determination and beauty. What a wonderful way to teach the children themselves about birth and to show them the JOY that was present the day they were born.”

It was the most startling moment of my life. I remember almost nothing. I remember only the shock at having just given birth in under 4 hours and discovering we had a daughter in our arms, not the son we had anticipated. Which is why I am so grateful Caryn was there to document those first moments of Aniela’s life. Looking at the photos now, I see the awe and love I have for my baby and my husband, emotions I didn’t even know were present. The photos we anticipated sharing with our child have now evolved into one of the most precious gifts we could have given ourselves. – Elizabeth Dankoski | October 2012

We’ve been lucky enough to have Caryn photograph several significant events for our family.  Most recently, she captured the birth our our third child and first daughter…at our home…in a birthing tub!  Caryn’s mix of professionalism and warmth were beautifully translated onto each photo she took.  She had a way of re-telling our birth story in such a moving and simple manner.  Not only does Caryn have skill, but she has also been gifted with an enthusiasm and joy for her work.  That is priceless!  Her desire to minister via photography is a blessing and we’re so grateful to know her as a friend and photographer!

Capturing The Essence…

When Caryn approached me during my second pregnancy and asked if I would schedule a newborn photo shoot I was excited and hesitant. I truly wanted newborn photos taken of my sweet baby girl but I had high expectations. I was nervous to entrust a friend with the job of capturing the essence of my perfect little newborn.  Could Caryn portray sweet innocence in sharp and professional prints? And would she be creative, use props, listen to my ideas and feedback?

Yes! Caryn’s work has amazed me.  The photographs from her newborn session were fabulous. Caryn came to my home, worked with a variety of props, and backgrounds, and prepared proofs for us to view within a few days.

Caryn shot a four-month session for us as well and the results were again breathtaking! With her camera she recorded each little eyelash and reflection in my daughter’s eyes. The images in the photographs seem more accurate and detailed than those seen by my naked eye.

Each time Caryn completes a photo shoot and blogs about it I am eager to see her work. Whether recording the joys of infancy, celebrating a family, or photographing wedding bliss… Caryn captures the essence of each moment, preserving treasured memories.

Thank you , Caryn.

I found Caryn on Facebook and instantly fell in love with her photos! I had to have her photograph my son as well as do family photo’s for us. Prior to our photo session Caryn came to our home to discuss what we were looking for and had great suggestions as to where we could display our photo’s and what sizes would work best in those areas. Our photo session was a blast! It felt like we were just having a day at the park with a friend as oppose to a rigid, staged photo session. Caryn was very timely posting our proofs to view, and every one was better than the last! So much so that it was hard to narrow it down to which ones we wanted! When we made our decision and received our photos we we were very happy. They came out great! I can’t wait to have her take newborn photo’s of my next child!
