I’m kara. I love flowers, tea, reading books and slow walks in nature…

I also love dreamy couples who love each other so much it bursts through my camera. I want to capture you and your loved ones truest essence, natural and heartfelt.

Let’s runaway together…

Are you a little bit whimsical? Fancy yourself a creative type?Don’t mind getting your hands dirty and love frolicking about in nature? I might be the perfect photographer for you!


My photography style

Here at The Runaway Heart’s, we are all about bright colours, soft happy hues, lovely pastels… if you are looking for dark and moody, that’s not me.

I have a background in fine arts, and bring my creative and artistic talents to my photography work. If you aren’t afraid of colour and cheerful tones, then I am the photographer for you! If you are after something extra special and a bit left of centre, then you are in the right place!


“Honestly, if I couldn’t have Kara as my wedding photographer I wouldn’t have had one at all. I was blown away when I got my photos back. Not only were the photos amazing she made me feel so comfortable during the photos. I love, love, loved them!”
