We recommend Karisa Denae as a photographer. We recently did a maternity photo shoot with her. She was on timely and very professional. We provided her with inspiration photos and she created the look we were hoping for and she did a great job executing it. On top of that she was very sweet and easy going. We will definitely hire her again.

Details: Maternity portrait • Candid (captured in the moment) • Natural / environmental (photographed in an outdoor setting) • Artistic (focus on composition, lighting) • Photo studio • Digital or online download • My home, venue, etc.

She was my favorite photographer (compared to 10 others) by far!! She was very punctual, she was WELL prepared, made sure we were prepared AND she was very informative on about going into position, making us feel comfortable in front of the camera! She was able to capture our rawest, most beautiful self and I’m looking forward to working with her in the future!

Karisa is amazing at what she does! She did an amazing job capturing my growing little family and capturing the love my husband and I have for our little bundle of joy coming in August. My husband and I are awkward with our pictures taken, but she made sure these pictures are absolutely beautiful and can not even tell!

Hi Kelsi! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this review. You are so appreciated and I am happy to hear that I can keep any "awkwardness" (which I didn't notice) from showing in your beautiful photos! Wishing for a happy and healthy little one :)

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    As a previous RN, future wife to a Coastie, and a family abundant with military members, I am happy to offer military, first responder, and healthcare worker discounts (with proof of employment). Inquire with me for more information :)

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    When a client first inquires, I do my best to respond as soon as I can and get all of the details--the who, what, where, when, and why! I offer many kinds of photo sessions and want to ensure that I can give the absolute best experience to my clients and make their vision come to life! Once booked, I provide styling guides, "What to expect" guides, and a personalized questionnaire to get to know you and what you're dreaming of. No detail will be missed!

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I have always enjoyed photography as a hobby since I was a young kid. I even took a photography class in college and worked with the photography department at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium and ZooTampa. However, I went on to pursue nursing and after a few years of working as an RN, I decided to step away from nursing to embrace photography as my full-time job! I found that I could still help people in magical ways with the use of my camera and services :)
