I specialize in child and family photography delivering a high-end portrait experience to every client! I am not afraid to get down on the ground and sing or play peek-a-boo with your little ones :-) I also use prompts during my sessions to make you feel more comfortable when it comes to different poses, these prompts also invoke true emotion verses me asking you to stand there and say cheese! So no matter if you have had a bad photography experience in the past, you will walk away from your session with me feeling 100% confident that your images have turned out great!
Karrisa is a fantastic photographer! We had a great time during our session. She has photographed our little Arabella since before she was born!
Karissa knows her craft. She's super creative and has the ability to draw the best out of her subject. Our photo shoot was an absolute pleasure and we can't wait to work with her again!

I've worked with Karissa on a number of occasions, but my most recent shoot was a surprise boudoir session for my husband right before our wedding.
Karissa made me feel relaxed and comfortable during my shoot, keeping me laughing and feeling confident the whole time. She even helped me put together a book to present to my husband.
Her work is impeccable. She brings out the beauty in all of her subjects. I couldn't be happier with all of the work I've done with her so far, and am excited to work with her in the future! More...
I am so fortunate that when I moved to Las Vegas I found Karissa. She captured some of the most beautiful images of my toddler daughter. Not only is she amazing at what she does, but her beautiful personality sets her above the rest. I'd recommend her for everyone ��� More...

A great photographer!! Really knows how to capture personalities!!
I took my 3 month old baby boy for a milestone session with Karissa. She is a natural with babies and you can tell she loves to work with them. I really like Karissa's clean aesthetic and editing style. Her portrait work with babies is very fresh and natural. She really captured my little boy's gentle spirit. She delivered my edited pics within just a few days and I am in love with the results. More...
I can't believe I didn't write an update for my last shoot with Karissa.Since my last review, she's rebranded, and is now Pearls and Lollipops Portrait Studio. I worked with Karissa a few times in the past, but she also did my engagement photos and a boudoir shoot for my (now) husband.Karissa specializes in newborns/family photos, but man, she can shoot anything!Our engagement photos are stunning. I used them for our Save the Dates, and they are just incredible. The boudoir shoot was amazing. I've always been a bit self conscious about my body, and Karissa made me feel very comfortable and confident. The photos are stunning, tasteful, and they capture a side of me that I just love!She's extremely friendly and professional. She will do all that she can to ensure that you are happy with your photos and your session. I highly recommend Karissa and Pearls and Lollipops Portrait Studio for any photography need! More...
