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

Hi! I'm Karissa Zimmer, a Harrisburg (PA) Pennsylvania newborn and family photographer. I am located in Mechanicsburg PA and offer custom newborn, baby, maternity, family and high school senior photography sessions. My purpose is to preserve the memory of tiny newborn toes, the bond between siblings (sweet or not so much at times!), parents laughing with their children or a new father holding his newborn child.

I STRONGLY BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF PRINTED PHOTOGRAPHS

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 portrait photographer, I specialize in creating images for display in your home in the form of custom, archival quality products. I want to give you the ability to relive the wonderful moments of your life over and over again, forever. I want to 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.
