Meet Your Photographer:

Carissa Behounek

As the owner, photographer and designer of CB Studio, I take a great pride in my work and my business. I have had a love for photography and art since I was 12 when I received my first camera. I believe that your special moments in life are something that should be forever treasured on display in your home. Because, after all, these moments only happen once!

I attended Hawkeye Community College in Waterloo, Iowa and graduated the Professional Photography program in 2006 and the Graphic Communications program in 2009. Shortly after graduating, my high school sweetheart husband, Joe, and I moved back to our hometown of Bode, Iowa where I started CB Studio. In 2012, I made the bold decision to move my business out of my home and to West Bend where I opened my doors right in the heart of the town. In 2017 we moved the studio to the larger community of Algona, hoping to capture more hearts. In my spare time I enjoy gardening, home decorating and crafting, all things that let me express all the creativity I have bottled up!

As of January 2015, Joe and I ventured into the long awaited journey of parenthood and have been forever grateful! I can’t tell you how full my heart is and how this new adventure has me even more busy! Our daughter, Liella, is very active and is always keeping me on my toes!

It is my first priority to make your experience one that you will never forget. I strive to make every session unique to you and your personality. I want you to take home a one-of-a-kind piece of artwork that is all about you or your family. I also offer a full line of custom designed products that further shows off your images in even more unique ways.
