WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING
Mimi Bishop, Brown-Forman Brands
Caroline was a delight to work with! She communicated well throughout planning and execution. With minimal direction, she was able to expertly capture the specific shots we needed for our corporate brand recap. I appreciate her attention to detail and timeliness, as this was a project with a tight deadline.

Caroline was super easy to work with! She captured professional images that I was able to use new headshots as well as other important marketing materials. Caroline has great suggestions and really makes you feel comfortable being in front of the camera.
