What families have to say....





I want to thank you for the amazing work that you did for us. We’ve never had such beautiful family pictures before. 

Thank you for the joy that you live out because of your faith in Christ. May the light of Jesus continue to shine in you and through your work.






You know those horrible photo sessions that end with every one crying and mad at each other, halfway smiling through gritted teeth? Carey's sessions are the EXACT OPPOSITE! She isn't "just a great photographer" - she's intuitive! She's intuitive to your family - to your personalities and nuances; to the weather; to the light; to your joys and strengths that shine through in her brilliant photos. She does more than just shoot a great photo, she encapsulates a moment - a year, a season, a sweetness - in time. Carey Schumacher photos are the greatest gift you will ever give your family!! ~S.P.





I've known Carey for over 15 years now. She did one of our first family photo shoots on the beach, and to this day one shot of my twins is STILL my favorite of all time. Of. All. Time. You can't go wrong with Carey. She cares - she knows how to get a smile out of even the hardest of little boys. Trust your memories to Carey - you will never, ever be disappointed.  ~R.B.










One of the very best in the industry! You'll never go wrong with Carey. ~Skip C.












Relax, laugh & have fun! Carey will capture every second and your problem is choosing which ones to print. Carey captures the best action pictures ever! It doesn't matter if it's during an intense sporting event or a leisurely walk at the beach. During the photo session my family ended up in the ocean laughing and having so much fun while Carey captured the most spontaneous smiles, and best of all, I now have invaluable memories printed on huge canvases on my walls! ~L.S.








Carey is simply the BEST!!! She has been photographing our family (and our extended family and friends) for over a decade and consistently outdoes herself every year with her breathtaking images. I'm amazed how she captures the essence of my kids' personalities with her hilarious jokes but very relaxing disposition...most of the time they don't even realize they are being photographed! She's fun creative talented and so easy to be around. We LOVE how she always makes us feel special and look reeeeally good!! Booking an annual session with Carey is one of our top priorities. No joke.   I remember our very first session when my son was only 2 yrs old...he wanted no part of putting his feet in the sand! My husband had to carry him. By the end of the session though he forgot what he was afraid of and we got that fabulous shot holding hands walking along the shore. It's one of my favorite memories...My son's first steps on the beach  ~P.M.




I'm usually the one behind the camera taking photos, so I admit it, I was nervous. Carey has an amazing talent of calming nerves and making it so much fun! We were visiting the San Diego area for our 35th Wedding Anniversary and she captured sweet memories to cherish. Loved everything about this session! We will definitely book a session with her when we visit San Diego again. ~J.W.















I wanted to tell you how much we ADORE these photos!!!!  These pictures are so priceless to me and capture our girls personalities perfectly.  Will let you know what we do for our Christmas cards - love them as always!!  Thanks! ~J.S.











Carey, we just got home and found the email with the link to our gallery. These photos are honestly better than I ever expected. A couple brought me to tears. Thank you SO much, I love them!!!  ~A.M.
