Welcome to the Kara Evans Photographer blog where I share all the things - from love stories and encouragement for creatives to behind the scenes photos and life with our pups.

Kick off your shoes and stay awhile - I’m so glad you’re here!

Our month of February was full but oh so good to us! We kicked off the month with a fun birthday celebration for my sister-in-law, and then jumped into the first week of February!

Happy new year! It’s time for my last (but not least) monthly recap from the past year… The month of December was good to us! Our month started with a Thanksgiving gathering – it’s so odd to me that the Thanksgiving holiday was so late this year. Then we were rolling into the new month! […]

November 2019 recap with Chicagoland wedding photographer Kara Evans Photographer.

The month of October flew by! Don’t you think so, too? Throughout the month, we got settled in our new home between Kyle’s work at the brewery, family time, and photographing many fall weddings and sessions.
