"Inside all of us is hope, fear & adventure. Inside all of us is a wild thing."
Hi! I'm Carissa Rumps.
I am a photographer who loves making new friends & taking photos of their beautiful moments! Hearts are wild creatures & we are taken on this crazy journey called life. I have a passion for capturing all it's beauty, emotion & personality!
I received my first camera from my dad in high school & this is what started me on my creative journey. I played with cameras, I played with props & even was my own subject. The world has so many amazing things to see...it's all about perspective.
After high school I graduated from Stanbridge College in Southern CA with my degree in Nursing. The job market for new grads was not the greatest in California so my husband & our 8 month old son made a leap of faith & moved across the country to Austin, TX. Jobs were booming here! Texas has blessed my family far greater than our expectations. After welcoming our second son into the world & working for 5 years as a Psychiatric & float LVN, I craved a slow down. I craved my creativity & passion. Photography does just that for me. It allows you to stay locked in a special place, moment, a feeling in time. That is something I hold dearly. Investing in good quality images allows you to return to these memories otherwise gone. You can visit the same moment over and over again & see it differently each time. What a gift!
I am a self-taught photographer & being an outgoing, people person, my sessions are always about making my clients comfortable behind my lens. I focus on my photos to be a casual, candid experience as well as those golden images that stop you in your tracks. The images that speak. I specialize in family, children, pregnancy, birth, & newborn photography. From the miracle of birth to those toothless grins, I want to be there for it all!
