Meet Your Photographer

Hi, I'm Clarisa!

Here are some fun facts about me:

  1. Born in Argentina, moved to Utah at age 4
  2. Wife to a brilliant tech nerd
  3. Mother to 3 really awesome, sweet sons
  4. I LOVE PIZZA! I will never say no to a slice (unless it has mushrooms, ew.) I also have a weakness for dark chocolate and strawberries!
  5. I love to travel! Especially if it involves sunshine and warm sand between my toes

I am passionate about documenting life and love sharing this gift with others!

When I started my photography business it was hard to to decide on a name. I felt the word "Evolve" represented my personal journey into photography and outlook on life.

As humans we evolve over time; We learn, grow and change (hopefully for the better). I love looking through photos and reflecting on past moments, noticing what has changed over time and celebrating the things that make us who we are.

It would be a privilege to be part of that for you!

My Family

My husband is my greatest support and cheerleader. He encourages me to try new things and is extremely patient with me while I navigate through life overanalyzing everything. ;) Our dates range from rock concerts or local theater performances, to grabbing a pizza and playing 2048 in the car, or simply snuggling on the couch and dozing off at the end of a long day. I like doing everything and nothing with him.

We are parents to 3 handsome boys and I really love being a boy mom! They are the reason why I got into this whole photography thing! Seeing their personalities and talents unfold over time is one of life's greatest blessings.

I also love Food Photography!

Portrait photography is a blast! I love working with a variety of people, personalities and of thinking on my feet as environments and lighting conditions fluctuate, but when I need a break from posing living subjects or need some time alone to recharge my creativity, I dive into food photography. And the best part? When I'm done I can eat it...which makes it like double comfort food!

How Did I Get Into Food Photography?

It all started when...

a few neighbor mom friends invited me to be part of a salad swap.
Each of us made one salad and duplicated it 4 times, then met up to chat and exchange. What a godsend for that busy time of life with littles! When I got home I couldn't resist snapping photos of those beautiful salad jars!

Because my nerdy side loves a good alliteration "Plated Portraits" was born.

And yes, I am one of those weirdos you'll find at a restaurant taking photos of her food. ;)

I use a spam filter and don't answer calls from unknown numbers so that means you'll need to leave a voicemail.
