Welcome to Carissa David Photography. I am a lifestyle and portraiture photographer based in Chicago. After traveling the world, and living in spain for 5 years, I came home, to Chicago. It is my joy to document the moments my clients long to remember for the rest of their lives. I am known for my intimate style of composition, use of natural and studio light, and particular ability to unravel people's unique life stories. We all have great tales waiting to be told. Let me help you tell yours.

MY MOM OFTEN TELLS A STORY OF WHEN I WAS ABOUT 5 YEARS OLD. I WOULD WALK UP TO STRANGERS AND COMPLIMENT WOMEN ON THEIR CHOICE OF JEWELRY, ESPECIALLY DANGLING EARRINGS. I WAS JUST THAT KIND OF KID. PEOPLE-WATCHING, WHILE IMAGINING THE KIND OF WORLD OTHERS LIVE IN, HAS ALWAYS BEEN PART OF WHO I AM. A PROUD CHICAGOAN, I'VE ALSO BEEN FORTUNATE TO EXPERIENCE LIFE ABROAD IN SEVERAL DIFFERENT COUNTRIES. AS I BEGAN TRAVELING IN MY EARLY 20S, I WAS ENAMORED WITH HOW BEAUTIFUL, DIVERSE, AND WONDERFULLY MADE OUR WORLD IS. THIS NOMADIC WAY OF LIFE BROADENED MY WORLD VIEW IMMENSELY. I MET THE LOVE OF MY LIFE ON MY FIRST TRIP TO SPAIN AND AFTER WE MARRIED, WE STARTED OUR FAMILY IN ANDALUCIA, A REGION ON THE SOUTHERN COAST WHICH IS, THUS FAR, MY FAVORITE PLACE ON EARTH. I AM NOW IN THE DAILY PURSUIT FOR ECHOES OF GOD'S BEAUTY - BOTH IN THE ORDINARY AND THE EXTRAORDINARY. WHETHER I'M HOMESCHOOLING MY 2 DAUGHTERS OR AT A Photo SESSION, THERE IS ALWAYS A BEAUTIFUL MOMENT WORTH REMEMBERING. IN THE ECLECTIC, I FIND MY WORK TOOLS; IN THE MATTERS OF THE HEART, I FIND MY HOME.
