Good to Meet You




I am the main shooter behind the lens of Caroline Newkirk Photo and Video. I am a habitual over-explainer (my husband likes to crack jokes about the lengths of my voice-mails). I have a bachelor's degree in Accounting and my brain understands logical/mathematical type information best. I am obsessed with organization, efficiency, workflows, and systems. I am constantly trying to figure out new/better ways of doing things. I have a very loud laugh. I love the Lord and I love my babies!!


Lok is my husband and my biggest supporter! He picked up the video side for weddings when my photography took off and I couldn't do two things at once! He is the strong, silent type towards 99% of the world. However, when it's just the two of us, he is the exact opposite. He has the greatest laugh I've ever heard. He loves me fiercely and he is always there for me. He loves rock and heavy metal music (the opposite of my taste in music) and movies of all kinds (especially super-hero movies). He's ooober handsome and he is the best dad and husband on the planet!


This sweet little boy came into our lives in the summer of 2014 and it has been a wild ride ever since! He was the inspiration for my photography and is my practice subject all the time. He is super smart, and handsome like his daddy! He is the most loving little boy I've ever met even to random strangers!! He is a lover. I am so, soo, soo blessed to be the momma of this little angel. I thank God for giving us this happy, healthy boy. I can't wait to see where this life takes him and what we will become!


Quinn is the newest addition to our family! She was born in September of 2018. The whole time I was pregnant, I prayed for a healthy, red-headed baby girl. Needless to say, we got our wish! That just goes to show you that the Lord really does answer prayers! We call her our wild child because she is full of personality and lots of fun. She is BUSY all.the.time. Even though she's a wild woman, she is still sweet as can be. She always wants to be rocked and sung to by Momma, every single night before bed. She really is the perfect completion to our family!

What,How,and Why

What I Do:

Time flies, that is why it is so important to capture the memories before they are over. I know how important your loved ones are to you & that is why I enjoy photographing & delivering priceless images, that I know you will cherish for years to come. If you are looking to book a session or just to chat & see if I would be a good choice for you, please get in touch! Use the contact form, reach out through Facebook, e-mail me, or give me a call. I cannot wait to meet you & your precious loved ones!

How I do it:

I am a studio light & natural light photographer. Natural light is beautiful, but can't always be counted on depending on the weather, season, and time of day. I have invested in top-of-the-line studio lighting in order to guarantee great lighting year-round in my studio for headshots and commercial shoots. Since I do so much on-site/outdoor work, I've also invested in and mastered an off-camera flash system that I can use on location when shooting in my studio is not an option!

Why I do it:

I have had a love for taking pictures for as long as I can remember. I have albums & albums of pictures of my life growing up with friends & family. I always had a camera wherever I went. I filmed my very first wedding back in April of 2013. While I was pregnant with my son, I decided I wanted to learn more about the photography side of things. So, I got my very first DSLR in 2014 and haven't looked back since. I quickly realized there is A LOT more to photography than having a good camera. You need to know your equipment, know your subject, & most importantly understand LIGHT in order to make your vision for that photograph a reality. I am an "all-or-nothing" kind of person when it comes to pretty much anything in life, so when I set my mind to becoming a photographer there was nothing that was going to stand in my way. To say I poured every ounce of my energy into learning as much as I possibly could would be an understatement! I lived, ate, and breathed photography for the first three years of my business and have made it my goal to never stop learning. I have participated in well-known courses with Milk & Honey Photography, Katelyn James Photography, Zach & Jody Gray, Kelly Brown, and Justin and Mary Marantz, as well as reading everything I can get my hands on for tips & information, all the while updating my equipment & continuing to hone my skills. What I have learned is that I can turn what was once a hobby into a business that I can be proud of. I love photography & I am so blessed to be able to share it with you.
