Mechanicsburg, PA Newborn, Maternity & Family Photographer

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

Hi! I'm Karissa Zimmer, a Mechanicsburg, PA photographer specializing in custom newborn, baby, maternity, family, and high school senior photography sessions for clients from Mechanicsburg and the surrounding areas.

I STRONGLY BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF PRINTED PHOTOGRAPHS

archival-qualityIn 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 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.

This is the moment where it all comes together! There is nothing like seeing your baby’s newborn portraits in the form of beautiful, tangible art. Albums that you can hold in your hands and flip through. A keepsake your child has to share with their great grandchildren one day. An amazingly beautiful piece of art that hangs on your walls where you will be able to enjoy it every single day as your precious baby grows and changes. Your memories are not meant to live on a hard drive or on social media. They’re meant to be displayed in your home in the form of something tangible. This is what is going to live on when your digital files are no longer accessible. It is my belief that your photographer should be fully serving you by turning your most precious memories into something you enjoy and see everyday. Archival products that will live on long beyond our days.

Sweet sisters at Miss Maddie’s sitter session. Sometimes babes get tired from working to sit, so we let them snooze and get some special sleepy shots 🤍

If you missed (or didn’t) the newborn stage, this is the perfect time to capture images of your baby…and even older children too!

I’d love to meet you for a free consultation to plan and customize a session. We’ll work together to create images that you’ll cherish forever and ever! Use the contact link in my bio or call 717-991-7414 today!
