Meet the Photographer


Carly Mynear is an on-location family and children's photographer serving Modesto, California and surrounding areas. Carly has been practicing photography for over 6 years, beginning her journey in northern Italy before moving to the Central Valley of California to continue her dream.

Carly brings energy and excitement to each session making your children feel like special individuals, she offers traditional, creative, and candid moments with genuine reactions.

She offers a spectrum of art pieces that are perfect for any home whether you’re looking for an array of wall prints or specialty art and prides herself in helping guide her clients to create stunning gallery inspired wall arrangements.

There are so many talented photographers in our area, so why choose Carly? Carly believes each and every client deserves a better, more intimate service than the standard session offered in our area. She thinks clients should be able to plan alongside the photographer with things like coordinating outfits and locations based on what your home looks like so everything blends well together, or talking about the reason for the session and what you’d like to do with your images afterwards so she knows exactly what kind of images to capture, etc…

She believes there is little value in your portraiture investment unless you have something tangible to enjoy. A printed piece that lives permanently in your home will be cherished for generations to come. University research has provided information that printed art of your family members provides 65% more emotional connection to your loved ones than swiping through electronic images on a device. Research has also proven that images visible and on display for your children to see, improves their sense of belonging, raises self-esteem, and instills security in their family unit.

Thank you for being interested if you would like to book a session please contact Carly today.
