A visual storyteller passionate about capturing candid and artistic imagery.
My blend of emotion based and editorial-style imagery has its roots in the entertainment industry where I came from first as a professional ballet dancer and then as a creative production manager for global media teams. This makes me an expert in those once in a lifetime moments, and at uncovering the stories that become the legends of your life.
Decades working in entertainment and stage make me an expert in anticipating moments, waiting the breath that is needed to allow a pose to settle, and capture the peak of emotion. My years as a professional dancer have trained my eye to be attuned to what is aesthetically beautiful; what angles and ratios are most flattering, how light can be used to tell a story and support the emotional arc of an image. I bring encouragement and positivity that help settle the butterflies, direction when needed, subtlety when a moment unexpectedly unfolds–and a good time when the adventure begins.
I find constant inspiration through a deeply held love of history, the arts and the ocean. I adore telling stories with my photographs, experiencing new places and broadening my appreciation of our world and the unique people in it. I am married to the love of my life, and mom to a Boston Terrier named Mumford.
"Cara captured the magic of our day and went above and beyond to take care of us throughout the entire process! When we got our photos back it was as if we got to relive the day again, and felt the rush of emotion from seeing the love from all of the people we care most about."
"I can't recommend Knock Twice enough! Not only is Cara so fun, sweet, and easy to work with, her work is absolutely stunning. She made the entire experience enjoyable and I was so impressed with the results. We will treasure the photos forever! "
