From the time she arrives until the time of picture delivery, Karena’s passion for her work truly shows. She is enthusiastic, professional, fun, extremely artistic, and not afraid to try something new to get the best shot. Working with babies is sometimes difficult but she made it look easy! With Karena behind the lens you get more than a picture… you get a piece of art. We really had fun working with her and I recommend her highly!!!!

Every photo session with Karena has been delightful! She is so easy to work with and has an eye like no other; capturing the “perfect” pictures every single time. She’s talented, professional and an absolute joy to work with.

Priceless Mementos. Karena is an amazing photographer that has an keen eye for seizing your moment . She easily captures your traditional side for that bookcase portrait, or funny candid side for the holiday card and her creative ideas are everywhere in between.  Once a year, at the very least — Karena is a must!

~ Christy Gibson


When I needed some professional photos taken, there was no question who I was going to get to take them.  Karena has a gift for bringing out the best in you and capturing the moment with just the right light, the right angle, the right…..well, everything!  Once Karena put the finishing touches on my photos, I couldn’t believe how polished they looked!  They were me, only better.  They were exactly what I needed for my business portfolio.”

~ Angel Adams


Karena is our go to photographer for all of our political events. She is professional, organized and easy to work with- most importantly, her photos are beautiful!

~ Kim Jorns, Executive Director, MDGOP


Karena captured every loving moment, every detail perfect. Her ability to see “outside the box” enabled her to get extraordinary pictures of my family. She was the creative genius behind the photos of my family. I love the natural element her photography philosophy provides, rather than the stiff, boring studio photos! Thanks, again, for your amazing talent and taking the time to work around our families crazy holiday schedule! We have found ourselves a family photographer for LIFE!

Karena was “Simply the Best”.  We just wanted to say that it was a pleasure to work with her.  She delivered WAY more than we expected and made the session exciting, creative and all around delightful.  Being a parent herself, Karena knows how to make children feel comfortable with humor. Her work and editing is, to say the least, phenomenal.  We can’t even begin to tell you how happy we are with the final product.  Thank you!

~ Randy & Stephanie Haddaway


From the moment that Karena’s camera clicked, she captivated the spirit of our family. She exuded warmth and instantly put our children at ease as she naturally found what makes them each individual. The images she captured showed our children’s true personalities and will be cherished pieces of art for years to come. Our family is looking forward to our next session with Karena!

We love the pictures of our son. They are amazing! You were so patient and easy going. Our son was awake for a majority of the shoot but you still found ways to make our newborn shoot so fun and sweet. Being our first child and first shoot we did not know what to expect. You came in and directed us knowing exactly what to do. You asked for our input and brought many of your own props which made the pictures so cute and creative. Children grow up so fast and now we will remember the birth of our little boy forever because of these beautiful pictures. Thank you so much for make the best time in our lives even better. We can’t wait to work with you again for his one year pictures.  Many thanks,

~ Daniel and Tiffany Rice Jr.


Rather than go to a large photography company or one that does “standard” poses it was refreshing to work one on one with someone who wants to embrace the beauty of the people as well as their surroundings. I look forward to working with Karena for many years to come. I trust her completely to capture those “moments” with my family.

~ Megan Nittle


I am so impressed with Karena Dixon! Her photography speaks for itself – capturing memories & moments in time that tell a story for years to come. I also appreciate not only her talents as a photographer, but her thoughtfulness where she was our photographer for the Festival Of Trees’ Mother-Son Dance, which benefits Talbot County Hospice. Her generosity for the community along with her talents as a photographer make her a winning combination!

~ Alisha Saulsbury


Karena’s caring nature made my children comfortable in front of the camera and it shows in the pictures. The friendly and prompt service made her a delight to work with.  So many wonderful pictures, it is impossible to choose a favorite. I love them ALL!

~ Doreen Riggs


Karena,  Thank you so much for your patience with my young daughters and your capability of making them feel at ease in front of the camera. You are a creative genius with an amazing artistic eye! I can’t thank you enough!

~ Alison Reibly


What an amazing opportunity this was for us.  To capture those special moments in life that you can never get back.  Our son is adopted and this photo session has allowed us and Jasper’s birth family to have professional photos that we both will cherish for a lifetime.  Thank you for that Karena.
