Writing to you from my pink desk chair in my very own little corner of the world (aka my home office)...

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.

Happy Monday to you! Last week, my husband, sister, brother-in-law, and I returned home from a magical trip to Walt Disney World! We all love Disney, especially my sister and brother-in-law because they first met while working there in college! We spent 6 days at the resort, parks, and Disney Springs, and we loved every […]
