The Story of Carol Gardner Photography

Hi there! My name is Carol. I love music, coffee, nature, design, and most of all my family. My favorite season is fall because there is absolutely nothing that compares to stepping outside to be greeted by a crisp breeze and warm shades of orange and yellow. In the fall of 2019 I had my daughter. I had no idea that having her would be so life changing. You see, I have always had a passion for photography, but her existence made that passion fervid. Maternity and the newborn phase of a child’s life is so special. There is so much joy, excitement, and change. It all goes by so fast! I documented every day, her every milestone, her every first. I shared those photos online with my friends and family. My aunt commented that I could make a career out of my photography. I was still on maternity leave and loved the idea of the freedom I’d receive from photography to spend more time with my daughter. To do something I loved gave me butterflies. It was at this point I decided to purchase my first DSLR camera. Since then I have been helping others capture their growing families. This time is gone in the blink of an eye, so these photographs help freeze the moment to last for a lifetime and share with future generations.
