Meet Your Photographer

Hi, I'm Clarisa!


I'm originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina and moved to Utah as a child. I'm the wife of a brilliant tech nerd and mother to 3 really awesome sons. I love dark chocolate, dates to the local theater, and exploring new places.


I started dabbling in photography when my first son was born and almost immediately fell in love with this form of documenting life in all its beautiful, chaotic glory. I decided to sell my college car and buy my first "fancy" camera! From there I jumped into learning all I could with whatever spare time I have while raising my boys. I love the challenge of learning and practicing the technical aspects and also the fun creative challenge photography offers. I'm continually evolving as a person and in my craft--thus why I chose the name, "Evolve Photography".


As for food photography (random, right?) that began when some of my mom friends invited me to do a salad swap. I couldn't resist snapping photos of those beautiful salad jars, and was fascinated by the colors and various textures. 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. ;)


Now that you know a little more about me, I would love to get to know you! Please get in touch so we can discuss your photography needs.

FAQ

Do you require a deposit?

Yes. I require a $50 deposit at the time of booking to reserve your date and time.

This deposit is refundable for up to 48 hours before your shoot. The remaining amount is due the day of your session. I will not begin editing your images until full payment is received.

If for any reason I need to cancel your session, you will receive a full refund of your deposit.

Deposits are non-refundable for no-shows, tardiness, or if there is a lack of communication with me of any barriers preventing you from arriving to your scheduled session.

Can you just "Photoshop" that?

Photoshop is an incredible and powerful editing tool but not one that I rely on extensively as part of my workflow.

Please bring any specific questions or concerns to my attention in advance to see if I am able to accommodate your needs. I do my best to get the shot right "in camera" and later add a little pop and polish in my personal style. Any editing requests beyond the delivery of your gallery will be subject to an additional editing fee.

Have a look at my portfolio to get an idea of the images I can create and see if we are a good fit!

Do you have access to a studio?

Yes!

There are several wonderful natural light studios in the area. Studios are a great option year round if you don't want to worry about windswept hair, extreme temperatures, and they usually have a restroom or private space to change outfits in.

Studio rental fees will be added onto the session price and are the client's responsibility. Please contact me for more info!

Do you charge travel fees?

I prefer to shoot within 25 miles of my home in Herriman but can make arrangements with an additional surcharge to account for my time and travel on a case by case basis.

How soon will I get my photos?

My turnaround is 2-3 weeks after final payment has been made. If you would like them sooner, I can accommodate this with payment of a rush fee.

What if the weather is bad or some other issue comes up?

In case of inclement weather (rain, snow, extreme wind) or illness, we can reschedule your session.

Can I extend the session on the day of?

Yes! If I don't have another obligation and as long as lighting or other circumstances allow, we can extend sessions. Each additional half hour is $75.

How will I receive my images?

Your session will be available for you to download directly from a password protected online gallery.

You will receive an email with instructions on how to access your gallery.

Do I have to order prints through you?

Nope!
I will provide you with a print release and you are welcome to print your images wherever you would like. However, purchasing prints, albums or seasonal cards through my online store supports my business and will result in a higher quality product than what most budget print labs can provide.
