Hi there! I’m Carrie. I’m so glad you’re here. Stay a while and have a look around. I would love the opportunity to get to know you. Everyone has a story worth telling. Here is a bit of mine:

  • I enjoy living in Denver, North Carolina, but will always refer to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania as my home.

  • You’ll often find me walking around with same cup of coffee all day. The coffee gets cold, but I don’t mind one bit. What can I say? I’m busy chasing after 3 kids.

  • I’m a total helicopter parent…judge all you want, but I can’t stand the thought of one of my kids getting hurt. I know I can’t always prevent accidents, but I’ll try my best.

  • I have a major sweet tooth and passed that gene down to my oldest son. Cakes, cookies, brownies, ice cream, candy – we love it all.

  • That is the only gene I think I’ve passed down to any of my children. They are all clones of my husband.

  • I can’t stand messes and am constantly striving for a simplistic, organized home. My husband on the other hand can’t throw anything away. It’s a constant battle that I’m determined to win.

  • I despise drinking water, but I can drink coffee, tea and wine like they’re going out of style.

  • I never really noticed details until I found photography. Now, I notice details all the time. I can’t turn it off. I’m hyperaware of my surroundings, even without my camera in hand.

  • I am a perfectionist. I could easily spend over one hour editing a single image.

  • I tend to talk a lot, which is ironic considering I used to be painfully shy as a child.
