Kapture Photography is a home-based studio, built specifically to accommodate newborns and babies in their first year. The studio was relocated to Rowville shortly after the birth of Karen’s daughter in 2011. Karen has been photographing babies and families for over a decade. Because she specialises in newborns, Karen knows precisely when to move and when to touch, and she is wonderfully gentle with each precious life that enters her studio.
All parents will have an extensive selection of hats and blankets of different colours and textures to choose from in order to create a newborn session perfectly tailored to their unique taste and style. The studio is set up to feel like home, so families can come in, have a coffee and a chat, and relax on the super-comfortable couch. Many parents often even manage to have a little nap while Karen is busy photographing their baby, secure in the knowledge that infant safety is her number-one priority.
My story so far….
Tiny, innocent, precious babies *squeal* who doesn’t love them? Hand me a cute chubba bubba and a camera and I’m happy! I’m truly passionate about helping families kapture special moments in time and create lasting, beautiful artwork they’ll forever cherish.
I LOVE what I do. Since 2004, I’ve photographed over 900 new Melbourne babies – that’s a lot of chubby adorableness! I’ve always been artistic; I took painting and drawing classes professionally for 15 years. But it’s photography that gives me the perfect creative output; I like to talk A LOT and family photography lets me do that. In fact, clients often tell me how much they’ve learned while having their photos taken. And they usually ask if I can pop round at four in the morning to help settle their restless baby. I really wish I could!
I like to share my passion and knowledge, so I’m also a photography teacher and mentor. And I’m always taking training courses to hone my craft, stay on point with the safety side of things and keep up to date with tech from the likes of Apple, Nikon and Adobe Photoshop.
When I’m not helping families make memories, I’m playing with my own two kids who sure know how to keep me on my toes!
PHOTOGRAPHY IS A WAY OF FEELING, OF TOUCHING, OF LOVING. WHAT YOU HAVE CAUGHT ON FILM IS CAPTURED FOREVER…IT REMEMBERS LITTLE THINGS, LONG AFTER YOU HAVE FORGOTTEN EVERYTHING.
