I'm Karissa. I am a California based photographer documenting stories for non-profit organizations and wedding couples. I believe that everyone has a story worth telling and I look for moments, candid or inspired, that honestly and authentically represent the missions and relationships of the people I work with. I absolutely love what I do and love sharing what I have learned along the way with others!

Sunstone Winery Maternity Session


Last week I had the wonderful opportunity to head up to Santa Ynez in the wine country of Santa Barbara to second shoot this maternity session for Jessica Grazia Mangia Photography. This session took place at the stunning Sunstone Winery, which I had heard about as a highly sought after wedding venue. As soon as we stepped on the property I completely understood why. This spot is nestled up in the hills and is the type of place that feels more like the heart of Europe than California. It was a blast shooting here and it was, of course, such wonderful day getting work with Jessica! Here are some of my photos and edits.
