POWERHOUSE BOOKS

"I WILL NEVER FORGET...my first healthcare shoot for An Ordinary Day, was of Mackenzie, who was diagnosed with Tay Sachs, the same disease my brother died from  before his 3rd birthday. After shooting 5 frames, I knew I had to figure out a way to make a book to raise awareness for kids with rare genetic conditions."

Healthcare Stories

Karen has been telling stories through photography since she received her first camera at the age of 11. Since then, she has never stopped viewing the world through her own lens, capturing the scenes, landscapes, personal moments, and daily life.
 
Heavily influenced by the death of her brother from a rare genetic disease — and the never-ending toll it took on her family — Karen began using her art form to raise awareness and educate her audience on the physical and emotional impact of serious medical issues.
 
Her Kickstarter-funded first book, “An Ordinary Day,” takes an intimate look at the unique challenges facing children and families battling difficult medical conditions. Proceeds went to a non-profit supporting children affected by genetic disease.
