I’m Caryn, the heart and soul behind Our Tribe of Five Photography. I am a mama to three beautiful little girls who are a constant inspiration. I’m a wife, a mother, photographer, hunter, athlete. I’m Michigan girl, born and raised in a small town and still call this very same place home. I’m a sucker for handwritten letters and emotional details. I love sentimental items and meaningful moments. I began my photography journey over 11 years ago and the rest is history.

I was never drawn to the super posed images with everyone smiling and staring into the camera. I set out on a mission to create images that captured emotion and connection. I want my images to stand the test of time, to be the images that your kids go searching for to one day show their own children. These are the images your children will hold near and dear when our time is up.
