Hello and Welcome

Spending Summers at my family’s farm in Northern Arkansas was where I first learned how to take handfuls of wildflowers weaving them together to make crowns for my dolls. Tossing an old quilt over a clothesline to construct a makeshift tent and then inviting my newly crowned doll for lunch made for the perfect day in my book. The time spent in the Ozark Hills along with my sweet Mama Stella Mae, helped to forge a talent for design assembly which echoes in the work I do today. I’m a Midwest Lifestyle and Portraiture Photographer that adores creating and capturing simple but beautiful images. Natural light is a blessing but I’m also comfortable with in studio or on location settings.
Along with being very fortunate to follow a career path that I love, I’m also a Wife, Mom, new Grandma to little Olivia, RN and am the former owner of Raised In Cotton, a shop selling antiques and home decor furnishings. My husband Bob aka “Mr Practical Pants” and I live in our 1865 Missouri farmhouse that we restored in 2009. It is the perfect backdrop for my signature style which is romantically atmospheric, multilayered and flavored with the vintage aesthetic I adore. 
I’m very flattered you took the time to stop by my site. Please contact me using the link above with any of your photography or styling needs.

  • Carol Spinski - Hi Carole,

    I certainly know how much work you put into your business. It’s just hard to do it all, just not enough hours in the day. Your store sounded fabulous and my goodness in a barn no less! Thank You so much for visiting and have lots of fun traveling:) Blessings, Carol

  • Carole - What a lovely web site you have, so much inspiration. I have had a country store for the last 10 years, antiques, etc. Closed it this spring, just to much work now for this old body! (retiring and traveling this fall) hoping all will happen…need to sell the old homestead first, (I had my store in a 100 year old barn my grandfather built! Carole

  • Carol G - Hey, can I join the RN club? I have just retired and am moving to Virginia. My plan is to open a shop that sells my hand-painted furniture and hand-made jewelry. In the past I have done a lot of mixed media stuff for myself and may include some of those things in my shop, eventually.
    I just found your web site today and have had great fun looking around.
