Our greatest treasures are the photographs that reflect our children's life stories. We took to heart who would capture our children as seniors. We wanted someone who would see who they are and then try to creatively reflect it through the lens of a camera. That is exactly what Carla did! Truthfully, having seniors can create stressful moments. Alleviating stress is one of Carla's strengths. She came alongside us and made our senior photo shoot feel like another fun part of the senior journey. Carla is professional, encouraging, detailed and creative. Each photo is as unique as each senior. Our entire family fell in love with her. Joy illuminates from within her. She works diligently and always with a smile. Carla's finished photographs become priceless works of art for each senior's family. - Tracy Jones Family
About six years ago our family had a photo session with Carla Lynn. The actual session was like nothing we had ever experienced. She wanted us to walk, talk, laugh, be silly and act natural. Really? We weren't just going to stand there and have some pictures taken with us smiling. Just spending time with Carla Lynn and our family, hanging out and having fun was wonderful. When we sat down to look at the photos we were all moved to tears. She found, through her gift, my family. The beauty and love was right there for all of us to see. Since that time we have grown to love and respect Carla Lynn. She recently took our daughters senior pictures. This experience will never be forgotten by our daughter. The kindness and beauty we see in Leah daily is shown through these amazing photographs. We no longer have pictures hanging in our home, we have art that Carla created for us.
God has truly blessed her with an amazing talent. My family is honored to know her.

Choosing Carla Lynn to capture our only daughter's senior pictures was a well thought out and calculated decision, and we'd make it over and over again! There is something to be said about a person who exudes a light from within because she is doing exactly what she is suppose to be doing. She wears her heart on her sleeve and through the lens of her camera beauty is found. When we began the journey and booked Hayley's session, the excitement grew with every text or phone call from Carla or someone in her staff. Her organization of the shoot is well thought out and nothing is left to chance. From the wardrobe suggestions to hair and make-up down to the perfect locations, it was seamless. Words fail me when I look at the creativity and the essence of who my daughter is brought our in the images we chose. We will proudly display them in our home as the works of art they are. Thank you Carla Lynn for saying "yes" when you were promoted to follow your dreams! -Randy, Kristy and Haley Smith
Our experience with Carla Lynn was beyond words. She was able to connect with my daughter almost instantly. The whole process was very exciting, from the initial consultation to viewing the proofs. Carla's ability to capture my child's image was captivating. We will be using her several more times with my other daughter, and of our family portraits. Congratulations, Carla- on finding your gift both behind and in front of the camera and sharing it with us! - Your friends, the Steinagle Family
Carla an amazing photographer, but an amazing woman as well! She truly does capture your inner beauty and what makes you, YOU. She's fun spirited and has the ability to bring just about anyone out of their shell. Carla goes above and beyond for each and every client and their families. This is a once in a lifetime experience, especially having the privilege to be on her street team. I love Carla to pieces and couldn't imagine anyone else taking my senior photos! Thank you! - Alyssa Wright
I've always been the photographer in my family, so finding just the right one for my daughter's senior pictures was very important to me. I asked for recommendations and a friend told me about Carla. I looked online and was so impressed with her work. When I called to set up an appointment, I couldn't believe that we would have a consultation before the actual photo session. When my daughter and I walked into her studio for the first time, you would have thought we were old friends. She was so welcoming and genuinely interested in my daughter and really took the time to get to know us.
As we were walking out that day, I knew we had made the right choice. On the day of the photo shoot, my daughter felt like royalty! Although it was extremely hot, Carla and Keri made every effort to keep her cool, calm and confident. We could not have been more pleased with her photos and I will treasure they for a lifetime! Carla is not only a very accomplished, wonderful photographer, she is sweet , confident, caring individual who truly makes the world a brighter place!

This woman is AWESOME at what she does. Her work is impeccable. I knew I wanted her to take my oldest daughter's senior pictures when the time came, because her action shots my youngest daughter playing softball were AMAZING.! My daughter Alyssa is now a senior ad was accepted to be on Carla's "Street Team". After the first meeting, I really got to know her as a person , woman and mother. Her story of where she came from and the reasoning of why she became a talented photographer will make your heart melt......- Carla Wright
Carla Lynn did fantastic capturing the sprit of both of my boys in photos that I will treasure forever. She has a wonderful eye for detail and is very creative. She is the BEST there is! - Lisa Dye
You do so well at writing blogs and I have never done a blog...so here it goes, you are a beautiful person and it shines through in your photography. I only wish I had met you when my kids were babies, so you could have captured their entire life. You seem to always find the best shots and pull out their personalities. You see the beauty in everything which is why are you so amazing. Everyday I walk in my house and the first thing I see is my children's beautiful photographs. The pictures are very special to me since our previous family photos have been a torture to my family and our special day with you was fun for all. For many years I worked in a nursing home and the one thing they tresured most was their photographs. If I was to lose my home, and could only take one thing (other than my children and maybe my husband), I would take my photos. As I mentioned before, I only wished I had met you earlier. Thanks again for sharing your gift with my family. You are amazing. - Sherri Krenk
Carla Lynn is one of a kind! She captured the personality of our son so well in his senior photos! Her genuine love for working with the kids is so apparent in her interactions with them and in the final product. Can't say enough wonderful things abut our experience! - Marla Skipper
The once in a lifetime experience of your high school senior's photo shoot should be one of happiness, excitement and encouragement. Carla Lynn provides that and much more. Her passion for capturing the natural essence of these teens is amazing. She makes them feel comfortable to be who they are. My daughter's pictures were, quite simply, my daughter. She was able to be herself. They were beautiful and some were absolutely breathtaking. You also captured unexpected moments which make memories. Thank you, Carla. - Christie
My life just calmed down for me to sit down for once! LOL. But just so you know everyone that came to my graduation party loved all of the pictures you took of me! Oh my gosh! I'm still in awe when I look at them! You are fabulous! -Taylor

Thank you again for the beautiful pictures! I could not have asked for a better experience or photographer! God really had blessed you with an amazing talent and ability to connect with kids. My year has been hectic but taking one look at the pictures brought tears to my eyes. To think that I've wished for graduation so long and I've missed everything that's led up to it. Thank you again. I hope to see you again very soon. I feel like I've built a friendship with you in this short time and I don't want it end. - Marilyn
