Hello, I’m Carmen!
+ I live in Birmingham, Alabama with my husband, our three children, and our 1 year old dog, Sherlock Holmes. I earned my B.A. in Studio Art with a concentration in photography from The University of Alabama in 2005. After years of interning, loading endless rolls of film, and second shooting, I founded CBM PHOTO in 2008.
+ I’ve shot over 30 birth stories and over 200 newborns. The baby fever knows no bounds!
+ My love affair with photography began with a hot pink 3×5 camera my daddy gifted me when I was a child. As a little girl, I would pose my friends, toys, and dogs with the goal of getting the perfect shot. Twenty some odd years later I’m still shooting away, always on the quest for my next perfect shot.
+ My approach with photography is to, quite simply, capture the story. The story of your baby’s birth, the story of their first days at home, the story of childhood, the story of your family tree growing. I believe the “in between moments” with your family are some of the most important to document and remember. Let’s get started telling your story.
