Carly Carpenter Photography | About

Hello!  I'm Carly Carpenter.

I’ve been photographing families and their sweet kiddos since 2011.  I love every step of the process.  From meeting you and helping you plan for your session, to photographing the session and finally to showing you your images for the first time!  I just can't get enough.  

One thing I'm really good at is my ability to connect with people and more specifically, children. Having 3 children of my own, ranging in age from 3-12, I get Mom stress on photo day.  I love nothing more than telling mom, "I've got this" and watching her relax as I connect with her children and get them to go from shy and unwilling, to little models that can’t seem to get enough!  It thrills me when I run into clients later and they say their child keeps asking when their next photo shoot is. 

I have worked with families of all sizes, all ages, and all personalities, capturing their moments in time and turning them into portraits. I pride myself in offering top-quality images and assisting my clients with turning those images into works of art by partnering with the best printing labs in the country. To me, a portrait isn’t complete until it’s off the hard drive and on the wall, so it can be enjoyed every single day.

I call Wilsonville, Oregon home but I shoot all over the Portland area.  I invite you to take a look around my site.  If you like what you see, please contact me; I'd love to get to know you!
