I can't wait to learn more about you, here's a bit about me! I'm Karina, an English-speaking, American (and now French, too!) professional photographer in France. Originally from Minnesota in the USA, I lived in Los Angeles for 10 years and then I made my big move to France over a decade ago. How did this all happen?

Paris, my new home
I first came to Paris as an exchange student in high school, I stayed with a family, went to high school with the kids, and it made a huge impression on me. Many years later, I had a rare opportunity to buy a little piece of Paris for myself, and since that time, I've lived in a little studio apartment in the fabulous 11th arrondissement, where several times a day I can smell freshly baked pain au chocolat wafting through my windows from the bakery on the corner. You know that show House Hunters International on HGTV? Yes, I was featured back in 2013. You can see my episode here on Amazon S1 E9. Word of warning, it's a bit goofy, but it was fun to do nevertheless!

Provence, you had me at hello!
My French dreams weren't yet fulfilled, I discovered the region of Provence and fell in love, hard. Now, I also have a home in amazing Arles, France, in Provence, and divide my time between Paris and Provence, serving clients along the French Riviera, too (I love Nice!). 

What do I bring to you, my treasured client, as a photographer in France?
Meeting you, my wonderful guests, hearing your stories and sharing mine, these are my passions. Sharing my knowledge of France with you, creating stunning cinema-inspired photographs that you'll treasure forever, and leaving with you with an unforgettable experience, this is what I'm about. I care so much about my clients, and feel so honored to able to meet you, photograph you, and share these wonderful memories together!

Hello & Bonjour, I'm Karina!

just a few of my favorite things!

I'm an avid lover of all things outdoors and I'm happiest when I'm outside in nature! I grew up on a farm, running around in the woods, and I still love the forest. I also adore the seaside, mountains and anywhere I can ride my bike, hike, or enjoy some fresh air. 

My work is heavily influenced by the beauty of nature.

I love animals! Cats, dogs, horses, elephants, giraffes--you get the picture! This is my beautiful Sandy, my kitty rescue, we were together for 15 beautiful years before she went to kitty heaven.

I love photographing animals in my free time, especially horses. Where I live when I'm in Provence, we have the spectacular white Camargue horses, and they're a joy to photograph.

Travel has long been a passion, naturally, I photograph everything when I travel, like this image from Italy. I've been to 60 countries so far, I don't say that to brag, but when I was younger I thought I'd never have the opportunity to travel, so I'm incredibly thankful for my experiences!

Some of my favorite destinations: Greece, Italy, Morocco, South Africa, Vietnam, Colombia, and of course, France!




SHOP my travel prints

Karina was truly the best! From the very start, I appreciated her prompt communication —especially booking from the US and planning a session in Nice, France. She was very thorough and professional, answered all our questions and gave suggestions to make the session seamless. The day of the shoot, my fiancé and I were both nervous unsure of what to expect, but the moment we met Karina she was very welcoming and made us comfortable. My fiancé kept telling me the entire time we were shooting how surprisingly comfortable he felt and did not feel awkward in front of the camera all because of Karina. To top off the amazing experience, our photos also came out beautiful and are completely obssessed!!! Could not recommend her enough.
