Meet Carmen | Seattle Photographer | newborn maternity child families
|Hi, I’m Carmen Miller so glad you found me! I am a professional photographer in the Seattle area photographing newborns, maternity, children and families. I have been a professional photographer for just over 11 years. I am originally from Edmonton, AB Canada and recently moved to the Seattle area in August 2012. I have one son who is 14 (gulp) and an amazing husband.
My photographic journey was inspired by many things, but mostly my grandmother I think. She always had a camera in hand at every function. I would sit for hours and sift through her piles of albums, especially the old ones from her childhood, and just admire them. She gave me my first camera, an old kodak 110, which I still have in my collection. I am very nostalgic and now that I have many of those old albums in my home, I realize just how precious photos are. It may not seem like a big deal at the time to click the shutter of loved ones, but years later you will be so thankful for them. Having lost many family members myself, most recently my dad in January 2011, I hold every photo, even the blurry ones near and dear. I hope that my photography is held onto and cherished by all of the families I meet.
When I’m not holding a camera, you will probably find me playing the piano, watching reality t.v., enjoying my time with my boys, perhaps a nice glass of wine too; after dinner of course. I would be honored to photograph your family or little one. Thank you for taking this time to learn a little about me. I hope to hear from you and get to know you as well!
