Hi, I am Cari "CJ" Mercer
What can I say about myself? Well, for starters...my real name is Cari Mercer, but you can call me CJ...
If you wonder where Eva Seraphine comes from. I am also a novelist, and Evangeline and Seraphine are two characters from my first book. (shameless plug)
I am creative and artistic and always put all of me into every shoot I do. Whether that is the classic works, such as senior photo shoots, family shoots, engagements, weddings, or the artistic portraiture, fashion, and creative works I specialize in.
I am a mom, a wife, a dog mom, a writer, and a philanthropist. I am the creator and editor-in-chief of Modern Raw Magazine. I am a disabled veteran, a domestic abuse survivor, a novelist, and a poet. But these things do not define me, they inspire me, just like each person who gets in front of my camera.
I look forward to working with each and every one of you. You inspire me to be a better photographer, you just don't know it yet. So, contact me, and let's create some art

“I recently had graduation pictures taken, and I’m absolutely in love! She did such a great job and was also a pleasure to talk to. There was even a chance of rain the entire time, but she worked so hard and we were able to get in lots of pictures before the rain came. I think the best part was I wasn’t limited to choosing my favorite pictures - she sent an adorable USB and I get to keep all of them! Highly recommend!”
