I LOVE what I do and I LOVE my clients. I don't want to just take your picture, I want to make your session the most comfortable, enjoyable experience possible. Photos don't have to be rigid and posed and photoshoots can be fun! I look forward to getting to know you and capturing you and your story.
Hello to my old, new and soon-to-be friends!!
I'm a multi-passionate entrepreneur, mom of two amazing sons & a fitness/wellness enthusiast. I’ve been creative/artsy/visual in one way or another pretty much my entire life. Photography has been a passion for what seems like forever...but professionally for over 15 years.
In a nutshell, I want you to feel the MOST comfortable, confident and excited about being in front of the camera. That is where the magic happens. It's that simple!
It started with looking at old family photos and then starting an addiction to those glossy pages of magazines. I would cut out pictures that "spoke" to me and make collages...or something like a vision board.
I got a degree in math & computer science...all the while, loving photography. Odd mix right? When my boys were babies, I started to take my love of photography to the next level and learn all I could about lighting, camera functions, posing and developing my style. After reading endless books, taking local classes, enrolling in the NY Institute of Photography and working with mentors, I decided to focus on hands-on experience and growing my own personal style. I then took a leap of faith and became an accidental entrepreneur and that is where Lisa Carpenter Photography started in 2007.
Since then, I have traveled nationally and internationally working with amazing clients and many have become friends. I LOVE what I do!
