About Me

Hi! My name is Karoun Charkoudian.
I bought my first SLR, a Pentax K-1000 film camera, in the early 1990s. I was 12 years old and had saved up rolls of dimes and quarters (working on a local farm) to buy my first camera. I enjoyed taking photos of my friends having fun, and close-ups of plants and butterflies.

In 2007, I purchased my first digital SLR camera and dabbled in family photography as a side hustle. I created photographs for art, participated in numerous art festivals, and won one of the awards for Best Photography at the Springfield, MA Mattoon Street Arts Festival in 2010.

In 2019, I decided that I wanted photography to be a major part of my life. I specialize in lifestyle family photography and corporate events. Please reach out!
