My name is Kara and I'm the one behind the camera here at Kara Knapp Photography. I was born in North Carolina, raised in Texas, and moved to Arizona after saying "I do" to my favorite guy. I'm a lover of (decaf!) iced coffee, long talks, good books, and any time spent with family and friends. Target is my weakness, I can't dance, but I love to, and home is my favorite place to be.
I have over 8 years of photography experience and have had the privilege to learn from some of the top leaders in the industry. Over the last three years, I have specialized in newborns and maternity and I can't imagine anything I would rather do.
I can't wait to meet you!
Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to learn a little more about me.
I have always had a tender place in my heart for little people and their families, but there's one little person in particular who has inspired so much of what I do: my daughter. The year after we got married, my husband and I found out we were expecting. We were so excited and could not wait to meet our baby. At my 20 week ultrasound, we were devastated to find out that our baby girl had severe complications and was not expected to live long after birth. After a beautiful 36 weeks of pregnancy, Audrey Hope came into this world and changed our lives forever. We got 10 sweet hours with our precious girl before we had to say goodbye.
Audrey has given me a new perspective as a photographer. I would give anything to have had the opportunity to watch her grow and document her life through pictures, so it has become an absolute joy to be able to do that for my clients. Life is so very precious and I feel so honored to be able to capture your sweet family and preserve those precious seasons that really are such a gift.
