Hello, I'm Karen Kahn. Welcome to the Looking Up Photography blog, showcasing highlights of  client sessions, and useful information for your next session. Stay a while and enjoy!

Happiness looks good on Sandra and Andrew. This lovely couple recently welcomed their gorgeous little girl, Taylor, into the world, so it’s no wonder that they can’t help but smile! Sandra and Andrew’s love story started 9 years ago, when they met through mutual friends, and you can see that that love has only grown […]

Words can’t express how full of joy I was watching my dear friend Michal on her journey of motherhood. Thanks to this blog, you also were able to see her first maternity session with me, her first daughter as a newborn, and now her maternity and newborn sessions with her second daughter. I love looking […]

The journey from maternity to birth is one that usually isn’t walked alone. There is often the loving spouse walking alongside the whole way, supportive friends cheering us on every day, and family that will drop everything to help at a moment’s notice. This is especially true for Jennifer, and I had the wonderful opportunity […]

Not all photographers have the pleasure of following the journey a woman takes through motherhood, but I had the wonderful privilege of capturing a part of Armida’s journey. She and her husband Erik chose one of my Belly to Baby Packages, which includes a maternity session and a newborn session. We had a wonderful time in […]

Over the moon dad and mom with firstborn, a baby boy, swaddled in delicate baby blue fabric for newborn portrait session

 There’s nothing like watching a friend you’ve known for years finally get something they’ve always wanted. That’s what I was able to experience when Peter married Natalia, and when they had their first child together. Peter has been my personal trainer for 8 years (I met him when my daughter was only 1!). I remember […]

Smiling mommy, daddy and big sister posed with baby girl with white flower headband swaddled in champagne wrap for newborn portrait session

A wonderful delight of mine is in seeing a family that is tight knit and woven together with love – so try to imagine how elated I was to capture this beautiful family in their maternity and newborn sessions! This wonderful four-piece lives in Westchester, CT, and ended up choosing my Belly to Baby Package, […]

Expecting mom and dad relaxing in the grass with beautiful yellow fall colors for outdoor posed maternity session

Parenthood is a wonderful thing. I love to witness the budding joy in the hearts of a new mom and dad, especially when their little one has yet to see the big and beautiful world they’re going to grow up in. This lovely couple has this same joy growing inside of them, and you can […]

Black and white back-lit expecting mommy draped in lovely lace fabric cradling belly for posed maternity portrait session

There’s an infectious joy that a new mother has, and it’s a beautiful thing to witness. This maternity session with my close friend was a joyful and wonderful time, and I’m so glad we were able to capture her happiness in her session! We both have a passion for creativity and love to put our […]

Keep looking up...that's the secret of life...

I take pictures to inspire clients to see themselves as beautiful and loved, and to honor and cherish their children. I take pictures to capture precious moments in life and preserve them for the future. I believe in saving family heirlooms and memories to help build a family’s history, and to provide keepsakes that my […]

Here are a few of my favorites from the session.
