I am Karena, the face behind Everlast Photography.

I have known, ever since the start of my photography journey, that I would be photographing newborn babies. It is my absolute passion to create meaningful artwork for families that feature their most precious loves. The incredible joys that parents experience when expecting a baby and the indescribable love that parents feel once their child arrives is what inspires me to create. I capture these feelings in a photograph so that my clients can relive these precious moments for years to come. I have been able to find this inspiration not only through newborn and maternity photography, but through baby and family portraits as well - anywhere love exists.

I have always been an artistic person. When I was a child, I wanted to be a cartoonist or illustrator. Between those early years and today, my life has led me to earn a Bachelor’s Degree, as well as to become the wife to my soulmate and the mother to my amazing children. When I am not spending time with my family or working, you can find me attempting to knit, traveling whenever possible, and humming Christmas carols in July (strange, I know). Others might describe me as quiet, soft spoken, funny, determined, loyal, maternal, sweet, and witty.

I’ve put my heart and soul into the portfolio I’ve created of these moments as well as the relationships I’ve built with my incredible clients and I am so grateful you’ve taken the time to get to know me a little.

Please take a look around my website and feel free to contact me if you’d like to chat.
