Harrisburg PA Photographer

“Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.”

Hi! I'm Karissa Zimmer, a Harrisburg PA newborn and family photographer. I am located near Mechanicsburg PA (Camp Hill PA) and offer custom newborn, baby, maternity, family and high school senior photography sessions.


In today’s fast-paced digital world, we often forget the impact of seeing a family photo noticeably displayed in the heart of our home or a lovingly tattered album kept out for our children to enjoy and one day pass down to their children.

As a full-service Mechanicsburg and Camp Hill photographer, I specialize in creating images for display in your home in the form of custom, archival quality products. Above all, I want to give you the ability to relive the wonderful moments of your life over and over again, forever. I will create and provide you with images that you want to fill your home with and will pass on for generations to come. I believe it is my job as your photographer to walk you through the entire portrait process from consultation to delivery and installation of your wall portraits.
