about karilyn 


Having spent most of my career in New York City, I've photographed actors, models and celebrities alike. While it's thrilling to work with a team of artists on a project, I always crave a deeper connection with my subject. 

Through photographing so many people, I've learned that there's only one thing we care about when it comes to being photographed. When we look at an image of ourselves, we want to see our best self reflected back at us. 

I want to show you what others see: the best version of yourself. There's no such thing as being "photogenic" or not. You just need to be comfortable in front of the camera, and it's MY job to create that environment for you. 


Am I the right photographer for you?

I love to photograph people and relationships. All are beautiful and welcome. Going through a professional portrait session is a wonderful act of self discovery, and I invite you to learn something new about yourself through this process.

I create art. At the end of our time together, you'll have beautiful artwork of yourself that you can proudly display in your life, whether that's in a frame on your dresser or a full blown gallery wall in your home. This art is for you

I invite you to reach out to me and introduce yourself. Let's create your dream shoot! 

Karilyn is a portrait photographer based in Portland, Oregon and New York, New York.
