I'm Carolyn P. Reed of CPR Designs™ and I've always had an interest in art. I tend to dabble in graphic design, website design and photography. The desire to become a professional designer led me to switch careers in the late 1990's where I took my first job in San Francisco as a web designer/webmaster. The interest in this field led me to begin work towards acquiring a degree majoring in art. I'm currently enrolled at Santa Rosa Junior College, with hopes to receive an Associate's Degree in Art very soon, and then transfer to Sonoma State University to pursue a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art (Photography). Ultimately, I would like to open up my own photography studio, specializing in portraits and commercial photography.

I welcome any inquiries relating to boutique web design or photography assignments including product shots, weddings, engagements, senior portraits, commercial photography, stock photos, events, etc.. Please inquire. Thank you.

All photographs are available for commercial or editorial, limited fee-based use with license. Prints are also available for sale. Please inquire. Thank you.
