We can get very creative or keep it simple - Either way, you’ll look beautiful!

I hear this all the time. You ARE photogenic! You just need to be in the hands of a professional! With twenty years of experience, I know what to do. I consider your portrait goals and then take care of the rest.  From lighting, location, wardrobe, hair and makeup - we'll make sure we think of every last detail.


I love to collaborate with my clients at whatever level is right for them. Sometimes it's meeting you all for the first time at the beach for a family portrait. Other times we meet first (sometimes more than once) to fine tune the session.  Whatever level of planning you’re interested in, I’ve got you covered!

My experience as a fine art photographer and professional portrait photographer ensures success and makes the process easy and fun!! (What’s the point if it’s not fun!)

As a portrait photographer, my job is to make you look good!

The camera loves you!

High school seniors or families, babies or brides, engagement sessions or headshots. Whatever the occasion, I'd love to capture it!

Katelyn kramer, Gorham, Maine

"Karen Lewis has been such a pleasure to work with and to get to know! She has been with us from the beginning (she photographed our engagement shoot, our wedding and 3 family/baby sessions). Our photos are so beyond expectations. I love that she doesn’t just take pictures she captures moments. She has always gone above and beyond, even embraced the elements with us to photograph our memories through every season.  Thank you so much for everything, can’t wait for our next session!"

"Karen Lewis' photographs captured the essence of my daughters. (She photographed both of them!) She connected personally and very easily so that they felt very comfortable being photographed. She is amazingly talented and fantastic to work with."

Alex & Jake Turnbull,
Portland Maine

"Karen Lewis photographed our wedding and we were so impressed with her. She is incredibly professional and easy to work with. She caught every moment we wanted and we didn’t even notice her photographing! Our photos are beautiful and captured the moments perfectly. We were so happy with Karen that we recently hired her again to take pictures of our newborn baby and were again so pleased. We would highly recommend her!"

"I feel so lucky to have Karen Lewis photographs of my boys at 3 different ages, including their senior photos. They are treasures!!  If my house was on fire, I’d grab these photos of my boys first!!"

Anne B.

"Karen Lewis approaches photography by connecting with her subjects. As an individual, she has a talent of being able to make people laugh and feel comfortable. This is evident in the images she captures. Karen’s photos can make you literally stop what you are doing as they demand your gaze. She is a truly talented photographer!"
