Clarissa Marie Photography
Hello! I'm so excited to finally be doing portraits for the public. I enjoy every minute of capturing lifes greatest moments. There is nothing like being able to freeze special moments in time and making it last forever. As a mom of 2 handsome boys, I love the fact that I can always look up on my wall and see my kids smiling back at me, and I can always remember the day when they were that age. I love doing family portraits, there's just something about being able to give parents a beautiful forever lasting memory.
I'm not good at talking about myself, so here it goes.... Like I said before I have 2 boys. One is 12 years old and the other is 4 years. I graduated college with a nursing degree, and I am an active RN working 3 nights a week at a hospital on a medical-surgical floor as a charge nurse. I love nursing and I love photography, so why not do both? I have a husband who I have been with for almost 15 years. He has supported me and has been my backbone throughout all that I have achieved.
I fell back into photography from my high school days. I would snap my 35mm film photos and take them back to the darkroom to develop them to see how the images turned out. Photography has definately come a long way with digital images. Back then you weren't even able to see how your images were until you developed it (I just made myself sound really old)! Now I've made the transition to digital photography. I've rekindled my love for photography after my baby was born and so now here I am, and I love it. I made the investment to doing something more than just taking pictures of my kids and family. Now I can share my talent and offer it to you.
I use natural lighting for most all of my portraits outdoors. Natural light gives the best overall lighting on the color spectrum, and can be used in ways that you can't achieve with artifical lighting. I specialize in family, newborn, child, maternity, engagement and senior portraiture. I love taking all type of photos and don't limit myself to just a single type of portraiture. Its been so rewarding to work with my current clients, and to meet new ones. I have met so many wonderful people thoughout this journey, and have made some fabulous new friends! I feel blessed and privileged to be able to be a part of the people and families that I have met. I hope that you can see my love for photography shine through in my work. I strive to make all of my clients happy, and I spend a lot of time to make my client's portraits special and beautiful!
I am happy to announce that I was ranked in the top 10 photographers in Sacramento by KRCA A-List for Best Portrait Photography in 2015!
Thank you for reading my short bio and hope to meet with you soon!
