Celebrating womanhood at every stage and on every occasion.


I am a photographer based out of St. Louis, MO focused on empowering women in a world where there is so much pressure to fit into a particular mold. Breaking the mold is what I specialize in. I want to bring forth my clients' personalities and true essence in photos. Our shoots are always fun, relaxed and as my clients would say - "Liberating!"

I see beauty in your grit, your talent, your flaws and your sensuality. I want to meet the real you and convey her through images that will leave you speechless. 

My style: A hybrid of beauty, fashion and boudoir. 



I’ve worked with Carol on a few shoots and I wouldn’t have another photographer capture my special days. She is very detailed and listens to what you want. Love her!!!

The first time I ever saw a collection of Carol’s photos I was in love with them! I thought they were so creative and they captured all the most beautiful and nuanced things about the model. I was lucky to have my own session with Carol a few months later, and my own pictures were everything I hoped for and more. I was a little nervous going into it, but I ended up feeling comfortable and relaxed and even sassy! And the resulting photos are absolutely gorgeous. Thank you Carol!
