"Capturing the moments of today that will wow your heart tomorrow"
I'm Clarissa, the photographer behind the lens of Tulip Blue Photography!
I had always loved taking pictures with my point and shoot cameras, and would get numerous compliments on the composition of the snap shots. I started to think I may have an eye for portraiture photography. My photography journey began over 11 years ago when my fiancé (now husband) bought me my first DSLR; a Nikon D70. I taught myself all the workings of that camera and practiced new skills photographing anything and everything. Once my children were born, they became my whole life and I wanted to capture their every moments. I photograph them exorbitantly, not only to preserve their little lives on film, but to improve my skills in photography. Sometimes they are they best models, and other times they get a little annoyed with the camera stuck to my face. Now that two of them are in school all day I have the opportunity to grow my skills and love for photography by offering my talents to you.
I recently had the opportunity to photograph the birth of my friend’s baby and knew I wanted to focus mainly on newborns and children. I love to share stories with other moms and watch my little clients grow! I feel my sessions aren’t just about capturing fantastic pictures, but making new lifelong friends as well! I look forward to what is to come and am so excited to be able to do what I love so much!

Clarissa has done numerous photo sessions with me and my family and she never fails to impress! She has done everything from pictures at the hospital for my new baby, my sister's senior pictures, and has done several sessions with my baby also. She is the ONLY photographer I will use! She is extremely patient with my little girl and manages to get perfect pictures of her every time no matter what mood my little one is in! I would highly recommend Clarissa to anyone looking for an awesome photographer who is willing to go the extra mile to capture those precious memories!
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! That's how I can sum up our experience with Clarissa. The pictures of our beautiful grandson are breathtaking and I feel like she went above and beyond what we expected. I will absolutely refer her to friends and family and will be asking her to capture all of our special moments from here on out. Thank you Clarissa for everything you did for us!
Clarissa is hands down amazing! She is great with kids/babies and is extremely patience with them during the shoot. (I mean, you can only have a one year old sit still for so long, am I right?!) She recently took my son's first birthday smash photos and captured his personality perfectly. I will forever cherish these pictures and am SO thankful she was able to capture them for me. I highly recommend Clarissa to all my family and friends!
Clarissa is awesome. Point blank period. She was so patient with my son. Compationate is an understatement. She went above and beyond to make our experience beautiful. I will be referring her to all my friends and family. I can't get enough of her work. And there will be many more awesome memories to come because of Clarissa. She is by far the best photographer I have ever met. Thank you so much!
