About Caren

My photography journey began when I had young children. I had a passion for art and enjoyed sketching and painting while I was growing up. When I began exploring the endless possibilities that I could achieve with my camera, I was hooked for life.

My professional career includes sales, marketing, and management positions for three corporations in St. Louis, Missouri. In 1997, I started my first company as an independent sales representative in Northern California. Image Media, LLC was launched in Missouri in 2008 as a photography business. I’ve photographed families, individuals, and special events in a variety of settings. My specialty is natural light photography on location in the metro St. Louis area. Currently, most of my photography is focused on personal and professional branding. It also includes senior photo sessions. It's my purpose to tell memorable visual stories for personal and professional expression.

During the first year of my photography business, I learned how to build websites in WordPress and create digital marketing programs. I’ve provided creative services in branding, web design, blogging, email newsletters, and social media programs to corporations, small businesses, and entrepreneurs for more than 14 years. My client projects begin with a focus on visual branding because that is an easier way to make complex decisions. When we discover how your story can benefit your clients, we can work together to build a powerful and sustainable online presence.
