About Carol

Bio photo Carol Maurin Pittsburgh Photographer

Carol is inspired by photography’s unique ability to capture genuine emotion, to reveal the depth of character, and to convey the spirit of relationships. Her signature portraits are compelling, thoughtful, and timeless. The black & white images are handcrafted, gelatin silver prints. These are heirloom works of art that will be treasured and enjoyed for many generations.

Carol has an engaging, relaxed style that enables her clients - whether executives, families, children, or pets - to feel at ease and have an enjoyable time in the studio or outside. Portrait photography is ultimately a language of expressions. By creating an environment of trust it allows her subjects to feel free to express themselves so that she is able to make images that convey and celebrate each person’s uniqueness.

Whether shooting in the studio, developing images from film in the darkroom, or working at the computer on digital color prints, Carol loves her work.

“Regardless of the medium it is the opportunity to engage with my clients that makes this work so much fun. Over the past 18 years I have met many amazing people (and their pets). I enjoy weaving their ideas with mine to create truly enjoyable, enduring images.” -Carol
