I’m Kara Hoganson.
I’m a St. Louis-based creative soul fueled by sarcasm, wanderlust and good design. But mostly carbs. It’s usually here when people advertise if they are coffee/caffeine obsessed, and I feel compelled to let you know that I am not one of those people. I do however have a strong appetite for travel, board games, museums, and advocating for work-life/screen-free balance.
How you spend your free time says a lot about you.
I spend mine creating.
Here’s a bit of what I do

…and a few of the brands I’ve been blessed to work with.
So easy to butcher,
so powerful when done right.
Design is my lifeforce. The second I realized it, I gave up the mermaid dream (at least publicly) and knew exactly what I wanted to do ‘when I grew up’.
Pictures are portals to moments we once shared.
I live to capture moments so you can cherish them forever.
The more candid the better.
A personal touch can work wonders.
The feeling people experience when something is hand-crafted just for them? Priceless.
How can I hook you up?
