Behind the Lens

MEET CARLY

Hello! My name is Carly Rose, and I am a photographer based out of NYC. Going into any photoshoot, I always remind myself to capture real emotions, real laughter, and real happiness. Not only do I love looking at the final portraits, the clients’ reaction and their energy is the real reason I continue to be a photographer. Photos are the perfect keepsake and are our way to freeze special moments. It really is a pleasure to capture lifelong memories for my incredible clients.

ABOUT ME

I'M CARLY

I fell in love with photography in middle school when I signed up to learn how to process film in a darkroom. Fast forward to after college, I was not going to invest in a professional camera and special lenses until I knew that this was my passion. I started taking pictures of nature and my family members on my iPhone. I would spend hours editing them and tweaking every little detail. I loved those pictures, especially all of the flower ones. However, the quality wasn’t there yet. Once I got my hands on a real camera, I couldn’t put it down. I brought my new and heavy camera on my second honeymoon. I decided that this was a beautiful place to learn how to pose couples and learn more about the settings on my camera. I ended up giving free photoshoots to a few couples staying at our hotel. Yes, I guess I was working on my honeymoon and didn’t even realize! My husband loved that I was exploring my passion at the start of our lives together.


I absolutely love my personal life. Being happy and bubbly every day is part of who I am. I am a full time mama to my precious baby. You can find us giggling and playing together. She loves to sit on my lap when I edit and work on client galleries. When I have downtime, you can find me taking a walk in NYC or watching Netflix on my cozy couch. My husband is my biggest supporter and brings so much love and happiness to my life. We love to travel and are constantly dreaming up our next destination for a family trip. Hawaii and San Diego are our favorites.
