Get to Know Karisa

May 3, 2018

Hey there! I want this blog to be one, a place where you can experience the beautiful people I get to meet and capture their story, but two, a place where you can get to know the girl behind the lens! So let’s do a little “get to know karisa” with one of those funny lists! (And some pictures of course!)

First Job: Working on a boat taxi in the San Juan Islands during high school!

Favorite Book: If it’s judged by how many times I’ve reread it, then definitely, and unashamedly, Harry Potter!

Biggest Adventure: Living in Spain for 9 months after high school. And travelling Spain and France solo in college.

Most Used Emoji: Eye roll and cracking up. Pretty much sums up my mom text messages!


Exercise Yay or Nay: Yay! I love running. I plop my kids in the jogger stroller and go!

Weirdest Food I love: You’ll never hear me say, “hold the mayo.” xoxox

My Happy Place: I’m oddly obsessed with Leavenworth, WA. I love the drive and everything about it!

What I’m Most Looking Forward to in 2018: Starting the build of our modern farmhouse in Lake Chelan!

Fun fact I don’t share immediately with people: I’ve run a home improvement blog for 4 years. Petite Modern Life!

What energizes me and brings me excitement: Planning and creating something that has a visual before and after. Whether a home makeover project, organizing, or a photoshoot at a cool location!

What I’m most grateful for today: My babies. I’ve recently been acutely aware of other’s heartache in losing a child or not conceiving, and my heart grieves for them and holds my precious littles as a great testimony of love and blessing from above. 

Extrovert or Introvert: Totally both. I can stay home in my routine with just my littles for a week plus pretty darn content. But put me in a room with other women that I love or vibe with and my glass is filled to brimming!

Where I want to travel next: Northern Europe.

Yay! I’m happy to finally let you get a glimpse of the girl behind the lens!
