Hi! :-) I’m Karissa! Photographer, mom to the most amazing 11 year old girly-girl and lover of all things tropical. I am located in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania (and surrounding Central PA) and specialize in full service newborn, maternity, family, and high school senior photography. I’m passionate about people, life, love and family. I whole-heartedly believe in the necessity to capture life's swiftly passing moments and phases.

I pride myself in turning your images into works of art by offering top quality tangible products for your home.

I have nearly 15 years experience as a professional photographer. I have worked with babies, children and families of all ages and sizes, telling each very special story though portraits. I want my images to tug at your heart. I want to create timeless portraits that warm your soul in all moments; happy or sad. I want to capture the beautiful moments that we all seem to take for granted and later struggle to remember.

My purpose is about preserving 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 want to give you the ability to relive those wonderful moments over and over again, forever. I want create and provide you with images that you want to fill your home with, and will pass on for generations to come.

I pride myself in turning your images into works of art by offering top quality tangible products for your home. Portraits of your most precious loved ones are meant to be enjoyed in your hands and on the walls of your home where they can be seen every day, not on a USB or computer screen.

Photography isn’t just a career or a job to me. I feel blessed to be passionate about what I do. I love chasing toddlers, dancing around like a fool for smiles, cuddling brand new babies, bonding with families, and feeling youthful again with high school seniors! I love to capture true smiles. I want to create a lasting relationship with you and visual memories that you and your family can look back on for years to come.

I can’t wait to work with you!
