I love what I do. I love telling the story of someone’s love, life, and happiness in one frame. While I started out wanting to be a screenwriter and spent many years toiling away in the financial world, the instantaneous thrill of capturing a memory by simply pressing the shutter button hooked me in 2004 and I have been a visual storyteller ever since with work featured in such publications as Martha Stewart Living and New York Magazine. I’ve lived all over the world and I am from Florida originally, but I’m proud to call New York City home. The vitality of NYC is something I pack into each and every photograph. I’m constantly roaming the streets and subway for new inspiration. So if you see me on the street with camera in hand, stop and say hi. I’d love to show you the city through my lens.
I seek to capture natural, authentic photos of my clients. For the last 20 years, I have worked with people from all walks of life to create images that truly reflect their personalities. My style evolved out of my own self-conscious nature. I didn't want my clients to feel uncomfortable or overly posed. I want to bring out the best of them and you!
I studied photography at the University of California - Santa Cruz and received a degree in art with a concentration in photography. In 2000 I moved to New York City and began an internship with portrait photographer Joyce Tenneson. Under her tutelage, I began to develop my own personal portrait style, a blend of photojournalism and relaxed portraiture. I shoot every family session personally and have always loved photographing children and families. I must admit, not surprisingly, with the birth of my first child in 2012, my love for photographing babies was taken to a whole new level! I have become obsessed with artistically capturing the story of my daughters’ childhoods. I have found that passion spills over abundantly to my amazing clients as I aim to create authentic, beautiful portraits full of real moments, laughter, and love.

Hi, I'm Carol Pires! I like to talk, I like to look in the eyes, to laugh, to drink good wine, to read before bed. I ask about everything, I'm interested in the lives of others, not others on the TV, but the others you. I like to listen to stories, I like to build stories. In fact, I like people who are protagonists of life itself. When I was a child I used to play dolls. Well, anyone remembers? I used to play house, to be a mother. He was joking about having a family, having a husband and a job. And did not that happen? Today I am crazy with love for Francisco, my little puppy that is under my wing, opa! mother owl, I'm married to photographer Tulio Thomé and together we built our life that is not a commercial, phew! It's real life, as I've always wanted! And why photo? Photography is the medium I've found for more than 10 years where I find myself more comfortable doing what I love: connecting with people, having fun and looking at the beautiful! So I put everything together: photography, families, people, women, memories, colors, images, stories. This is my job and that's what I love to do!
I am an award-winning photographer based in Warsaw, Poland. I have over ten years experience in family photography. My approach is unobtrusive and discreet, which allows me to capture you just as you are. I enjoy working with professionals, but also with little, clumsy, and uncooperative models like babies, children, and pets. As the father of Hanna (1,5 YO) and Frank (3,5 YO), I do have personal experience with babies and children! I am known as an on-site photographer and will continue to offer those services. However, I recently opened a photography studio. I don't photograph newborns in baskets, buckets, or dressed as pets or flowers. I believe the best newborn photography is a baby in the loving arms of family.
I'm in love with taking family pictures of the good life—kicking and screaming included. My family photographs are an extension of me, and you should know I've never been accused of being a quiet person. My camera loves people who make funny faces, hugs and kisses are a session requirement, and when someone throws a tantrum I click my shutter faster. If I laugh at an image while culling a session, no matter how bad it may be from a technical standpoint, it automatically goes into the editing queue. I want to see people's loud, their love, their life. Together, we make pictures that make them say: This is Us.
My photography roots began with a career in photojournalism. I found immense joy getting to discover the communities I lived in while shooting for the local newspapers and having the opportunity to document people’s daily lives. That documentation of daily life is what I am now bringing to my portrait sessions – telling the stories of you and your family: Those every day simple things that we may take for granted. Those little moments that you will want to remember forever. The natural interactions of you with your family.
I am the mother of of two beautiful, smart and creative little girls, photographer, wife, business owner and lover of real life. I love the simple in everyday life. I strive to capture my subject being who they are and the in-between, perfectly imperfect moments of you life. I want to tell your story though my lens and preserve it forever in an image. Having been a published newspaper and magazine photojournalist in Western Pennsylvania/Northeast Ohio since the new millennium, I have had photographs published in USA Today, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Post-Gazette and the Pittsburgh Tribune Review and many other newspapers around the world, as well as a few big magazines.
I've contemplated long and hard every single day since I've picked up a camera about why I do what I do and what motivates me. I think about what it means to me and about what it means to other people. There are a few reasons, some have changed, some haven't. The few that drives them all are human connection, relationships, and vulnerability. I feel I have a responsibility to photograph present reality for the sake of human history and future nostalgia. It is very easy for me to connect with people, whether it be my clients or a stranger on the street. I love knowing that through my chosen medium I am able to gain new perspectives of this life, one person at a time. I feel honored and blessed to be able to wake up every morning and tell stories through photographs.

When my son Teddy chose me to be his Mama, everything changed. I became more patient, more kind, more silly, more giving and WAY more aware of how fleeting and special our lives truly are. As I grew as a mother I also grew as an artist and every day I seek to capture the love, laughter, and human connection that make up our lives.
After graduating from nursing school, I spent two years working in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at the prestigious Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Feeling a strong call and desire to help others, in June 2007 I left my job in Philadelphia. I took my first trip across the Atlantic Ocean and spent a year volunteering as a nurse in Monrovia, Liberia, onboard the world's largest non-governmental hospital ship, the Africa Mercy, with the medical charity, Mercy Ships. While in Liberia, I began writing about my experiences for several newspapers and magazines in the Philadelphia area. The editors needed images to illustrate my stories, so I ordered my first DSLR camera and began learning how to use it. I quickly realized the power and significance of an image. A single image could transcend distance, time, and situation, to communicate a thought, feeling, or emotion, that was universally recognized in the human experience.
Having grown up in California and New Jersey, I feel very at home on both coasts. Once we moved the California I spend most of my time in or by the pool. I became a competitive swimmer and swam through college at UCSD. After college I moved to NYC where I work and lived for 8 years. Although I sometimes miss the city, I'm happy to be back in San Diego. My relationships with my friends and family have always been important to me. Before I knew it was, I was documenting my life, I took tons of pictures. I covered my childhood bedroom with 100's of these photographs— 2 and a half walls. Over the years, I had the opportunity to travel for fun and for swimming. My photos evolved from snapshots of friends to documenting my trips and experiences. As a professional photographer, I've worked to combine documentary photography with my passion and eye for capturing special and candid moments with loved ones and my clients.
I was born in Manchester almost 30 years ago to my eclectic fashion designer Mum and entrepreneurial Dad. Growing up I absolutely loved the indie, vibrant, musical, grimy, authentic vibe of Manchester and it served me well as a backdrop for all my creative endeavours. I was always in the school art room and constantly making a mess of my parents home with my collecting and collaging. I was always the one following my friends around with my vintage film cameras at all the gigs, nights out and Oasis concerts. In 2012 I graduated from Central Saint Martins art school in London with a BA in fine art photography and went on to start my photography business full time. I've had my photography featured both online, in magazines and in galleries in London, New York, and Tel Aviv. I've photographed everything from births to boudoir, from street photography to celebrity portraits but one of the most beautiful parts of my job is photographing people, families, friends and children just being themselves, enjoying life. What I love most about lifestyle photography is that it's memorable, it feels authentic, charged, emotional and real. With minimal posing the images capture life and love as it truly is, and therefore treasured forever.
