 I am a wife and mom to 4 wonderful children and 2 crazy dogs. I love sunsets, the smell of fresh cut grass, and playing softball. 

I have been a photographer for 15 years. What started as a very passionate hobby capturing family and friends, has turned into an incredibly busy and fulfilling business and I can't wait for what the future holds.

When capturing real moments,  I don't like the fake smile at the camera, don't pose you in  uncomfortable positions, and I want to capture the silly faces and more. 

Why? Because those are raw emotions of life and I'm so excited to be there for it!

"Kari Rae Photography is amazing! I could not be happier with my son’s graduation photos, they turned out even better than I could have asked! Kari really was able to capture my son’s true self through her creativity. My son was not overly excited to take grad pictures, but Kari made the entire process easy, comfortable, & fun. Both my son & I enjoyed the session. Kari was very flexible in working with our busy schedules. She was open to ideas on locations & had great recommendations for us as well. It was such a great experience. I will definitely be booking with Kari Rae Photography again!"

Know that these are more guidelines than rules, and all can be successfully disregarded.
The key is just be and dress like you! That said, here are some tips:
We want to keep the focus on you or the little ones, so avoid distracting or busy colors and patterns. Go easy on white. Coordinate and compliment, certainly, but there’s no need to match. Kids can pull off bright, bold colors, but otherwise similar earthy tones are safe. Add a pop of color for some flair if you like, and texture is great for black and white images. Always, always wear something you’re comfortable and feel good in.


Question 1   What should we wear?

Portrait sessions can be rescheduled due to weather or illness. A 24-hour notice is appreciated. We’ll reschedule based on availability. Non-weather-related reschedules are allowed, based on availability.
A rainy or snowy wedding, on the other hand? Safety and preferences are considered. 

Question 2  What if I need to Reschdule?

Lifestyle sessions are up to 2 weeks. Can vary in busy seasons but I will keep you updated.

Weddings are delivered within 6- 8 weeks. 

Question 6    How long do i have to wait for my gallery?

I pride myself on my editing style. I offer "light" editing meaning, I do not replace faces, clear up all acne, take of braces, change colors of clothing , etc. “Lightly edited” images are color-corrected, brightened, cropped, or otherwise lightly adjusted as needed.
If you are wanting more than what I do offer, there will be and "extra" editing fee.

Question 5    What if I want more editing done?

I have an easy to use online gallery. They are uploaded as a high resolution image, so when you download, they will still be high resolution. I highly recommend printing through me or www.mpix.com.

Question 4    How do you deliver our Photos?

Absolutely!!! For my lifestyle sessions, I offer them within 48 hours. With weddings I offer within 72 hours. 

Question 3   Do you offer sneak peeks?
