Meet Your Photographer
Hi, I'm Larissa. When I first began my photography journey about 6 years ago, I mostly photographed couples and families. One day during a family session, I pulled mom aside with her youngest daughter for some Mommy & Me shots. Her older children and husband ran off to play on the beach. A few moments later, I noticed the oldest daughter leaping across the beach. It was picturesque. Mom informed me that she had just started taking dance lessons. Of course, I quickly turned to snap a few photos of that moment! The second I heard the click of my camera, my heart leaped. Instant inspiration. I remember the feeling so well.
I’m finally pursuing what I knew I was meant to pursue from that moment - Dance Photography.
Dance has always been such an inspiring form of art to me. I may have not become a ballerina as my 3-year-old self wanted, but I get to become a fan and a cheerleader for all the dancers that I get to photograph! I'm so grateful that I get to call this my job. ♥️
Some other things that I love:
dogs, chocolate, the show Friends, living in Oregon, baked goods, the 90s, pretending that I can dance, polaroids, being a wife, being a mom, amazing grace, and all things creative and emotional (including photography).
Are you a Dancer looking for a photographer?
Are you a Senior looking for someone to capture this exciting and important time in your life?
I've had the chance to work with some amazing dancers. Here is a video of some of my favorite shots:
