Rich Barker Her live concert photos are spectacular, we even used some of the photos in our new album - on the cover! Highly recommended for band photos and live performance photography.
Schuyler O'Reilly Nina provided us with the perfect combination of simplicity and professionalism. We were looking for someone who could take casual couples photos and Nina was an absolute pleasure to work with. I plan on working with her again! She has a knack for taking photos that perfectly capture the moment.
Elana Kier We could not be happier with Karetova Photography! Nina is talented, kind, and easy to work with. Nina took the time to truly understand what we wanted for our newborn pictures with our son and delivered a wonderful final product. She is always on time and professional. We were so impressed with Nina and will continue to use her to capture precious moments for our family in the future. We highly recommend her work!
Mike Lowe Nina is a remarkable photographer. I've dabbled in photography enough to know that her ability to have a pleasant conversation and seemingly take a few casual shots that turn out to be the best version of you is amazing. She did a family session with our two boys and session with our newborn son and we couldn't be happier with the results. You will enjoy your session and the results will be better than you think they could be.
Joanne Jao I have worked with many photographers and their fancy equipment (many of them experimenting with new techniques and needing a "guinea pig" so to speak). Nina's camera, however, has been one of the best that I've ever been in front of - she has a remarkable ability to look through her lens and capture the true essence of a moment or person, or even place. And not only is she very professional and skilled, she also has a way about her that makes one feel very at ease and comfortable (which makes for better photos)! I would highly recommend her for any type of moment that one would want to be encapsulated forever in a photograph, be it portraits, special events, boudoir (for that special someone), etc.!
Andrew Jahn Heading into the job market this year, I needed professional headshots to build my application portfolio. Nina demonstrated an instinctive understanding of exactly what I needed, and I use one of her headshots as my Google Plus profile photo to this day.
Besides getting a quality product, however, Nina was also personable and wonderful to work with. She listened to what I needed, and worked with me to arrange a series of poses and locations that showcased both my talents and my personality in their best light. I would highly recommend her to anyone else in the greater Bloomington area looking for quality photography at an affordable price.
Kari Westerfield I work as a doula, and a few months ago I had the opportunity to work with Nina during a birth. She was amazing. As an individual, Nina was both extremely personable and professional. She was so accommodating and easy to work with. However, it was her the photographs that truly astounded me.
Having taken birth photos for clients in the past, I know that timing is critical and there is a line where images may become too graphic or even inappropriate. (Not to mention, hospital lighting is often NOT the most flattering, and its difficult to make such a beautiful experience appear as such!) At the same time, I am also used to seeing professional birth and newborn photography that are almost too lovely and syrupy sweet...
Somehow, Nina was able to capture the raw intensity and emotion which IS labor and birth. She captured it all - the passion, the excitement, the fear, the pain, the anger, the fervor, and (somehow simultaneously) - the pure joy, adoration, and affection - all while still maintaining the integrity of her subjects. Each picture spoke volumes - and the story they delicate wove was one of truth, strength, and love.
I could not recommend Nina enough. I hope I have the privilege of working with her again, whether at a birth or in other settings.
Elena Larson Nina is amazing!! She is extremely talented, and very professional, flexible, and friendly. I can't say enough good things about her and her work. I couldn't be happier with my engagement photos, and I have gotten tons of compliments on them. She really knows how to capture the energy and mood of the moments she captures, and really lets the personality of her subjects shine through.
Winona Snapp-Childs Nina takes such lovely photos! She has done family photos for us as well as baby pictures for both of our children. She just has a way of capturing everyone's best side. I highly recommend her!
Charlotte Walker Nina photographed our son's birth and we are beyond pleased with the experience. Birth photography wasn't something I thought I would be interested in, but I'm so glad we did it. Nina's skillful presence allowed my husband and me to focus on the birth and kept our birth team free to support us. Not to mention, she captured beautiful moments of my husband and me and the birth team. Her presence was calming and welcomed during the delivery, never distracting. We felt at ease with her during this very personal moment in our lives. I cry every time I look at the photos. She captured memories I would never be able to relive on my own. I'll cherish these images forever. Nina also visited shortly after we came home to take newborn photos. She was great with our little guy and it was really nice not to have to leave the house a photo session.
