Charleen Larkin is a New England based photographer specializing in high school seniors, maternity, newborn, family and executive portraits.
Charleen’s love for photography began in her sophomore year at Killingly High School. Capturing Images for class assignments sparked her creative skills as well as her enjoyment for processing and printing in the dark room. Her high school photography teacher encouraged Charleen to enroll in the Rhode Island School of Photography, graduating in 1989. In 2001 she realized the dream of owning a studio, opening Charleen’s Portrait Studio in Danielson, Connecticut.
