BIO/Contact Info

Carolyn Rauen Nature/Landscape Photographer

I am an Occupational Therapist, Photographer, and Artist.  I started oil painting when I was 12 years old and continued to paint as an adult.  In my early thirties I decided that photography was an artistic outlet that I wanted to explore.  I started by taking pictures of my boys and landscapes at our family farm.  It evolved to include my passion for our National Parks and nature's beauty.  Our Family loves the outdoors.  Every year for two weeks a year we leave Iowa to explore a different area of the country with our boys.  We love hiking.  Our boys have a lot of energy, so we love to explore nature on our trips by hitting the trails.  I created this website to share some of the photos from our many adventures to the National Parks and beyond.  I have a great passion to share the beauty of nature and wild places with others.  I hope our travels help others and my boys gain a sense of adventure and appreciation for all the wonderous beauty our Earth has to offer. 

  Thank you for taking the time to view my work.  It means so much to me that it is being shared and enjoyed.  If you are interested in any prints or packs of my National/State Park note cards please feel free to email me at or  See the link below.  I can also be contacted on LinkedIn (Carolyn Rauen), Facebook (Natures Edge Photography), or Instagram (natures_edge_photography).  

Much Love,

Carolyn Rauen
