Photography, Yuba City, Plumas Photo Art

Your Bio

My name is Cara Ramsey. I am a self-taught photographer driven by the sheer passion of seeing something, simple or complex and capturing it in a moment, a moment never to be again. I enjoy shooting artistic, portraits, still life, vintage and forgotten places in America. I love shooting in black and white due to the fact that you rely solely on the strength of the photograph. I choose to do very little editing to my photography, preferring mostly straight "out of the camera" shots.

I was born in Kansas City Missouri, but grew up in North Georgia. I recently moved to Yuba City, California........a beautiful state in which I am just beginning to see the diversity it has to offer a photographer. I have two grown children and two step children. I am newlywed to a man who, without him, I would still be only wishing to create images. My home is where I do most of my portrait shots; being that it was built in 1915 it makes the perfect backdrop for wonderful vintage shots both indoors as well as out...with beautiful rose gardens, pool and pond.

Take a few moments to browse through my pages, I update often. Prints are available for purchase. If you would like to schedule an appointment call 916-281-6913 or contact me at Serving the Yuba City / Marysville area.

Thank you,

Cara Ramsey

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you . We are all meant to shine as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. Its not just in some of us; its in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear our presence automatically liberates others."
