Photography has been my lifelong passion. In 1981, I cashed in my eighth grade graduation money to buy my first camera. It was a Pentax K100 and I still have it on the shelf in my office. That purchase helped jump-start my journey into photography, it's been a wonderful journey of learning ever since.
In 1987, I graduated from Antonelli School of Art and Photography and worked for a yearbook photography company, Davor Photo, until my second son was born. It was at that point that I started working part-time for Showstopper Photography, while also growing my personal photography company, Kara Raudenbush Photograph (KRP). Today, I own and operate Kara Raudenbush Photography working in the Metro Philadelphia area capturing significant life moments and small business social media content. I also work for Showstopper Photography as an area sales representative and part of the professional photography team.
At the risk of sounding ridiculously cliché: I love my job!
During my KRP sessions, I get to spend time with amazing people and am able to focus on and learn about their personalities. This allows me to connect with them. I find great pleasure in helping them gain confidence in front of the camera. I strive to find the emotion in each and every session, and uncovering that emotion is one of my favorite parts of my job.
