Introduction: Creating beautiful, playful, open-hearted family portraits that reflect each family’s unique love is my passion. I am a commercial, editorial, studio & lifestyle family photographer based in the San Francisco Bay Area. With over 15 years of experience, I’ve worked with a wide range of clients - from families of all shapes and sizes; to magazines, advertising agencies and companies from across the country. Why should it matter that I’ve been doing this for so long? I want you to know that whatever happens during the session, you can rest easy knowing you will get meaningful & beautiful portraits that reflect your family’s love. I’m experienced and comfortable with the full range of personalities, scenarios & emotions that may come up. I show up ready & prepared, but flexible & open to go with the flow. Whether you’re looking for a studio session, or a lifestyle session; I am excited & grateful for the opportunity to work with you. I create and work with families and folx of all stripes - whoever you love, however you self-identify, whatever your race, cultural background, or abilities. Let’s create portraits that reflect your family’s love & make your heart sing.

Carolyn is amazing. I've hired photographers before, but never one that put so much attention and care into making sure our session was perfect. Carolyn spoke with us beforehand to determine exactly what we were after, both from an artistic and emotional viewpoint, which set the tone perfectly. She was also very flexible for rescheduling when our kid came a week early! The day of the shoot, Carolyn arrived precisely on time and was ready to go. She took a quick survey of the house to find the best areas, and got right to work. She had an excellent, funny attitude, and made it a blast overall. She was fast with the edits, and all were excellently done. We had a hard time picking out the photos we wanted, there were so many good ones! Delivery of the final files was also convenient and easy. Overall, I highly recommend Clementine Studio. High-quality, professional work, and fantastic customer service. As our kid grows, we'll definitely be hiring her again!

Carolyn is wonderful to work with and takes amazing photos! We booked her for a shoot with our 3 month old little girl. She captured all the excitement, joy and love of having a little baby. She is very professional and responsive. We will definitely book future sessions with her.

Carolyn was amazing! We loved all the pictures and we'll definitely use her again! The lighting, the settings, and the natural moments she captured made the best pictures! I've had professional pictures taken before, but these were by far the best!
