Hi, I am Carmen

Your Story Starts Here

Hello! I am so glad you are here! I am a senior portraiture photographer, artist and educator based in San Antonio, Texas. You can usually find me reading a book, hanging out with my husband, watching a baseball game, drinking a Starbucks while aimlessly wandering around Target, or watching painting videos on Youtube for hours on end. I love to do dishes; I find it therapeutic and relaxing. I have found I love quick car trips around the great state of Texas. There are so many beautiful parts to the state! But mostly, I love getting home, immediately pulling up your photos, finding my favorite one, making it look magical, and then sharing it with the world because I know how excited you are to see one.  My passion: it’s giving these moments back to you. Because these are the moments that made you who you are…. so far. Just think of all the things to come! All that being said, senior pictures are a ONCE IN A LIFETIME experience and you want to LOVE them! Just "good enough" isn't good enough when it comes to your senior photos. You are working hard and accomplishing so many amazing things in academics, sports, performing arts and you want to show off all of the things that make you unique. Let's work together and create images that show who you really are. My aim is to create portraits that are timeless. When you and your family look back on them 20 or 30 years from now, you will recognize yourself and remember viscerally who you were at 17, 20, 22 as you graduated high school and college. My whole family is in on the deal. We often shoot together and truth be told, I would be lost without my husband at my side. My kids are often second shooter for events and my oldest is a master at posing. My youngest has 3 cameras already and she is only 12. My boys are busy in their lives but they are always the first people I share my work with. It can make for a crazy life, but I wouldn't trade it for anything! They all have a place on my website as well. See if you can find them! I would love to hear from you, so drop me a line and let’s talk about what I can create for you! Blessings! XO
