ABOUT LARISSA


Simply put – I LOVE my job.

I feel privileged to be able to make art every day and to share it with my clients, knowing that it will be cherished and inspire fond memories for years to come. My goal is to make images to say more than just, ‘this is what happened’ but also, ‘THIS IS HOW IT FELT.’

I began shooting with an old 35mm camera at age 12, developing the film in a makeshift darkroom in a bathroom tub. The camera was a tool for communication and investigation. A way to record and explore the world around me. My approach to photography is intuitive and emotional, influenced mainly by photojournalism.

My goal is to make images that bleed passion and color, seep humor and excitement, and expose the beautiful, whimsical, spontaneous moments of real life and love.

I will travel anywhere and love to meet new people.
