About Caren

Are you ready to discover your authentic brand identity and story and share consistent, valuable content that is in alignment with your business goals? When you have a clear plan of what you want to achieve, taking action is easier.

My company, Image Media, LLC, started as a photography business in 2008. I began blogging and engaging in social media that year. Not only did I enjoy the experience of connecting with others, I realized how essential it was to have dynamic, integrated digital assets to build a brand and grow a business. In 2009, I added web design and digital marketing services. My clients have included corporations, small businesses, and solopreneurs in a variety of industries.

My career spans decades in corporate and entrepreneurial marketing and project management. My passion is photographing people and places in my hometown of St. Louis and beyond.

I invited Caren to speak to my students in Washington University-St. Louis' Communication that Works course and I was so pleased with the results! She offered an interesting and engaging presentation that effectively demonstrated to the students how to use storytelling in creating a personal brand, and how to bring one's personal brand into alignment with a company brand. Moreover, Caren showed the students how branding and social media work together. Her depth of experience in corporate, entrepreneurial and freelance photography worlds gave the presentation a truly unique flavor and was perfect for my diverse group of students. I learned a lot as well.
