About Me


I’m Caroljean. The face behind the camera at Full Life Photography. I love getting to know each person I photograph and capturing their unique personality on camera.

I am an observer, planner, and thinker, so I long to look for the details. Seeing the beauty and the wonder of the moment helps me to live more fully. Thus, the name Full Life Photography!

I am a random writer and reader. A sampler-platter partaker. A wife and mother of two awesome children. And a soft-souled, laugher-through-tears and lover of God, His Word, and His son, Jesus Christ.

What about your full life? If you are like me, you realize that time is fleeting.  You desire to capture the beauty of obtaining authentic portrait images of you and your loved ones that you can cherish for a lifetime. That’s where I can help. I am here to help you prepare and feel confident every step of the way. Take a look around, and if you like what you see, let me know by contacting me for more information. I would love to help you tell the story of your full life!
