Powerful, Compelling, Timeless

There's something special about a black and white portrait. From the early days of photography, skilled craftsmen have been creating portraits that have become true classics. The portraits created by Karen Walker convey the sitter's strength and beauty at every stage of life. With Karen Walker's distinct portraiture style, she elevates the simple black and white study to the level of true  art. A timeless portrait to be admired and passed down through the generations.

The Portrait Session

Black and white portraits are usually created in the artist's studio where she has complete control of the lighting and environment.  Color studies may be made in the studio or, if you desire to tell a more in depth story including your personal surroundings, a sitting at a location of your choosing may be possible. Karen is always receptive to your suggestions.

It's Time To Be Bold

A portrait is one of life's most treasured possessions, an investment in your life and history, becoming more precious with each passing day.  Contact Karen Walker today for a portrait that is powerful, compelling, and timeless.

"These pictures are SO special and somehow capture an inner peace and vunerability that I can't even put into words. You've taken people we know and love and showcased this raw beauty that you just don't notice day to day. You are making aging beautiful and timeless and something to be treasured. I just have to have them."  Bridget A.


A Work of Art


There's nothing like bringing a newborn baby into the world.  It's an occasion to be celebrated.


Plan Now

You must act quickly to capture this fleeting moment in time.  Newborn babies grow and change in the blink of an eye. The first week of life is the best time to photograph a newborn while they still spend most of their time asleep.  This is when the most heart warming photos can be created.


Portrait pricing starts at $250 and includes a studio photography session, an online gallery for viewing and ordering and a $100 print credit.   Location sessions are available on a limited basis for an additional travel charge.

Bonus:  If you are over the age of sixty five or have military experience, you qualify for an additional $50 print credit!
