Hi! I'm Karlyn.
Welcome to my world! I'm glad to share it with you.
My love of stories, simplicity and light has driven me to photography; my love of people has made it a career. I am a wife, mother, caffeine addict and reluctant exerciser; scattered artist, dormant writer, closet comfort food junkie. And my life's work is to tell your story.
I have been a photographer in the Seattle and Whatcom County areas since 2004, growing my passion for creating real life images. "Anda" means "spirit" in Swedish, which is exactly what revvs me up so much about kids and families and new life: the depth of love, the comfort of togetherness, the untamed wild joy of eager little hearts. My sessions are not stiff and posed. We play, we giggle, we relax, and you are invited to fall easily into your authentic self as if the camera weren't there.
My style is called "lifestyle" because I want to meet you just exactly where you're at in life and hit pause for a second. Moments that are beautifully suspended in time cannot be forgotten; they forever stand as witness to your story. Come as you are and revel in it because you are truly incredible.
From outdoor maternity to squishy newborns to big, crazy families - I love every story, and I would love to share yours.
So what about my own story? I live in the Bellingham area with my smoking hot husband (who also photographs with me when I'm lucky!), our two wild munchkins and our saintly patient house rabbit. Together we love long walks, camping, bonfires, adventuring, family popcorn movie nights and creating random projects. As I'm able to carve out time (which is rare, as any mom will tell you), I love to read, write and be outside... preferably with chocolate. Always.
I'll see you soon!
"come be in love with your life. Every messy minute of it."
