About Me:

To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” by Elliott Erwitt

Most things in life are moments of pleasure and a lifetime of embarrassment; photography is a moment of embarrassment and a lifetime of pleasure.

General Information:

I’m a natural light photographer. My goal is to make you feel comfortable so that your true personality shines. I love to see natural emotions between family members or couples. To me, preserving that moment in time is priceless. I’m very patient, and I understand that sometimes children are not in the mood to have their pictures taken. If that happens, I’m willing to reschedule your session at a later day at no cost.

I prefer to shoot in the morning or an hour before sunset when the lighting is best. Please wear something comfortable and colors should complement each other, not necessarily matching. I may ask you to sit on the concrete or grass, so please take that into consideration when choosing your outfit.

Hello there, I’m Carrie Hoben, Photographer and owner of Southern Photography, Inc. Thanks for stopping in! I am based out of Vicksburg, Mississippi. Please don’t let that discourage you. I love to travel and would someday love to see the world. I specialize in Weddings, Seniors, Portraits and Events!

Photography has been a passion of mine ever since I gave birth to my first son. I really enjoyed capturing all of those “first” important memories. As he grew older I started taking pictures as a hobby to enjoy photographing people and making them feel admirable or/and important. It is always refreshing when a couple not only has a connection with each other, but some direction for me, the photographer.

I have worked with several other photographers in the Jackson Metro area who have taught and guided me to become a better photographer. With their knowledge and my creativity I have become who I am today. I love learning new things as well as different perspectives. No two people are the same or want the same things so I like to be diverse.

I’m excited to meet new people and make new friends. Working with you is more than just a job. I enjoy what I do and I want you to enjoy it as well! Life is about making memorizes and enjoying them while they happen. What better way to remember them then by photographing it!!!

Thanks so much for taking the time to get to know me; I’d love to hear more from you! Feel free to visit my website and contact me at any time. I look forward to hearing from you!



Payment will be required at the day of service. Cash or check is an acceptable method of payment. I hope you consider me to be your next photographer. Thank you.
