Central Pennsylvania Photographer specializing in Newborn, Baby, Child, Family, Maternity and High School Senior Photography
Thanks for stopping by to check out my little piece of the web. I’m Karissa! I am a photographer in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania (and surround Central, PA) specializing in newborn, baby and child, family, and high school senior photography. I whole-heartedly believe in the necessity to capture life's swiftly passing moments and phases. "Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still."
I am the luckiest mom to an amazing, spunky, silly and loving 9 year old girly-girl. She's the best little teammate, my driving force, and also my biggest fan all in one! I'm a lover of warm summer weather, beaches, all things purple, peanut butter, hibiscus flowers and Pinterest. I like to spend my free time being active. Most important in my world are my daughter, family, and friends. I've got them to thank for their love and support in helping to propel my photography career into what it is today.
I began my life's journey behind the camera as a photojournalist. I worked as a staff photographer, shooting at a local newspaper for several years. After the birth of my daughter in 2008 I began to grasp just how quickly life's precious moments pass by. Not only did I know how important it was to capture all these fleeting stages in my own little girl’s life, it's also when I knew I wanted make it my life's work to document special moments for other families. It was in 2010 that I began this amazing, rewarding and ever growing journey that is Karissa Zimmer Photography.
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 young 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.
