Cara Dukelow

FOUNDER - Photographer

I’m a New Hampshire born and raised photographer who specializes in naturally lighted, real images. If you asked me what I wanted to do for work 25 years ago, I would have told you become a Nascar driver. (I’m not kidding!) My dream occupations evolved throughout the years, including plans to be an orthopedic surgeon, an elementary school teacher, a fine artist, a medical illustrator, a child psychologist, and eventually….a photographer. And while I still love to dabble in a whole lot of other interests, photography is what I was made for.

I care about how you feel when you look at your photos, so I want to help you create real interactions that show up as genuine emotion on camera. This means that we approach your photos with a team approach as much as possible. I work really hard to create moments that aren’t just the traditional pose, but instead reflect a real moment and feeling.

Cara Sandford Studios is currently located in Southern New Hampshire and the Greater Boston Area. I specialize in families, seniors, and couple portraiture. I shoot a limited amount of weddings a year to allow for time home with my incredible husband Craig and pup Bruin, whose faces you will see all over my social media. (2019 is currently booked for weddings, but I will still chat with you in the off chance we can make something work!)

Traveling for photography is NEVER out of the question! (I’ve got a bad case of wanderlust—just ask Craig. I have about 5 dream trips planned at a moments notice. Currently dreaming of: Estonia, Hawaii, Alaska, Argentina, and Jordan.) On a case by case basis, I am willing to create custom packages to make a session work for both you and me.

I care about you. I care about your photos. And I’m SO honored and excited to work with both new and old clients. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions,
