About

Carah Newman is 34 years old, but still looks like a teenager.  She lives in the middle of North Carolina.  Her full time job is as an RPSGT (sleep tech), and in her off days, she’s a aspiring photographer and mom of Jake, 3, and Abby, 1.  She’s been married for 5 years, and is in a great time of her life.

Carah owns a Canon T2i, a 50mm 1.8, a 100mm 2.8 macro which she loves, and a couple of kit lenses that are gathering dust.  She does own a flash, but never uses it as she prefers natural lighting.  She got her camera in Feburary, her 1.8 in March, and her macro in April (birthday present!)

As a business, she mostly does portrait work.  Her favorite is kids, as they are so natural, un-self conscious, and full of joy.  She loves to capture that innocence and zest for life. She hopes to branch out into pet photography, and maybe some day weddings as well.

Her real passion lies in macro work, mostly flowers.  It might be because they can’t run away or move.  These are for fun, but she does make prints upon request.

Carah loves to look at other’s work.  She regularly visits photography forums, other blogs, and subscribes on Facebook to other photographers.  Constantly looking for inspiration, she is perhaps a little overzealous in her search. 🙂

Carah can be reached by:

Email – carah.newman@yahoo.com

She hopes to get a website for clients up and running in the future, but as of now, she only has this blog.

  2. Your macro work is stunning. And working with kids is not always easy, but the portrait work you’ve shown belies that. You have definitely managed to show the zest and unfettered joy. Beautiful.

    • Thanks, Rhonda! They are a challenge, but kids are what I learned on, so I guess it gives me an advantage. My kids are WILD. I actually bring them along to my kid sessions because it helps loosen my subjects up so I can get more natural shots, even if I do have to chase them down and deal with them photobombing me!

      • That’s a great idea, bringing your own kids along to ‘warm up’ the subjects! Whatever the process…it certainly works! Best of all luck on the business.

  13. Hey there…
    Just dropping you a note to say “I hope my Blog didn’t over load your inbox recently’.”
    I think I had something set wrong and as I was creating a post it may have sent out an email to every “follower” of my blog as I made changes. If this happened to you, I am so sorry.
    And in case I haven’t said so yet…Thanks for stopping by my site.
