Looking Up Photography

I am a Maternity, Newborn, Baby and Family photographer for clients in Fairfield County CT and Westchester County NY.

The story of my work is the story of my clients; creating portraits together that inspire them to celebrate their family's love, and to cherish their children. Through my artistic process I embrace their inner beauty, and honor the unique connections in each family.

Capturing precious moments in life and preserving them for the future is my passion. My clients receive images that are heirlooms to build their family's history, and keepsakes they can look at years later and experience the love and joy all over again.

Specializing in maternity, newborn and baby photography is a dream come true. I’m continually inspired by the vulnerability, tenderness, and strength in my clients at these pivotal moments in their lives. It’s an honor to be trusted to record treasured memories for them.

I want my clients to feel our session together was special because capturing these precious moments in time is a wonderful choice to make for their families. Bringing out the love and connection they have with one another, and taking home true heirlooms to cherish for generations… These are the reasons why portrait photography is so worthwhile.

I give my all to every session; kindness, patience, a warm and friendly atmosphere, an open heart and an open mind. And, of course, my vision and talent. I believe doing business with this approach is key to creating moments and images that will truly matter to my clients.

My clients celebrate their children through our portrait sessions and the images we create together. Their babies are a gift, they are beautiful, they are our future, and they are the heart of their families. It's my mission to inspire my clients to keep "looking up", but in all honesty they spark my passion for my work tenfold.

My clients receive a blend of traditional posed portraits, intimate up-close images, and candid interactions that capture a special moment in time. All images are custom-styled and professionally edited, resulting in timeless treasures. I choose only the very best from your session to provide you with a beautiful gallery of family memories.

I am trained for newborn photography posing and use proper technique to ensure your baby is safe during our session. I am a QNP certified photographer, which means I passed rigorous tests and assessments by a panel of professional newborn photographer judges and was deemed to be dedicated to excellence and success in my photography business, newborn safety, and artistic newborn portraiture. I also have two children of my own and feel completely at ease holding and calming your baby.

Quality service is paramount. Your experience through the portrait process is as important as your final heirloom quality portraits. As a mother, wife, daughter, and granddaughter I hold dear these fleeting moments and value your portraits as if they were my own. I take great care in providing you with timeless, artistic, heirloom products to adorn your home and preserve your family’s legacy.

What others are saying…

Doing a newborn photo shoot with Karen was the best choice my husband and I could have made. Even though it can take so much effort (on behalf of the photographer and tired family) to capture the peaceful pictures we all associate with the adorable birth announcements we get from young families, Karen’s unending patience made the whole experience very relaxing. The pictures she took of my daughter were absolutely stunning. I only wish I took my oldest when she was born too. If you’re thinking about doing this for your newest addition, stop thinking and call Karen. You won’t be sorry! Thanks Karen, seeing your pictures of Lucy melted my heart.

We absolutely LOVED working with Karen at Looking Up Photography. When we arrived at her studio, she greeted us warmly and brought us water. Working with newborns is a slow process, and Karen is so patient. She did not rush us when our son needed to nurse halfway through the session. I was a little anxious that my new baby boy would not be relaxed and “photo ready” when we wanted him to be, but Karen was like a baby whisperer! She got our son to sleep and took the most AMAZING photos. We loved how the pictures came out and all the options she provided for us to purchase them. She is so great to work with; I would definitely recommend her!

Karen is a true professional – she was so wonderful with our little newborn girl and toddler boy! Not only was the session seamless and enjoyable…but the finished product far surpassed my expectations – she is truly creative and talented. We look forward to working with her again!

~ Allison Milakofsky

Karen was absolutely fantastic. I had my five day old newborn at her home studio and karen was patient, kind, creative, and talented. This was my first newborn photo shoot and I was not quite sure what to expect, but it was a great experience and we came out with some beautiful photos that we will cherish forever.

~ Courtney Elgort

Working with Karen for my son’s newborn shoot was fantastic. She was extremely professional and her studio is gorgeous, but I was most struck by how sweet and gentle she was getting him into different poses – she’s a natural with babies. The photos themselves turned out beautifully and I’m so thrilled we worked together!

~ Mallory Moyer

Karen made us feel so at home in her studio. She was so warm and patient with my newborn. Especially since the baby had a hard time falling asleep and was quite colicky – Karen was so patient and understanding. She didn’t rush us at all and the photographs turned out beautifully! You would never know from looking at the photos that my baby was anything short of a little angel! We were so pleased with the entire experience and highly recommend her!
