Hi, I'm Raya Carlisle - a photographer, a stylist, a mother of three, and a Californian, born and raised. My photographs are defined by a lightness in feeling and composition, that contain both whimsy and honesty. I'm drawn to the “moments in between” - those pauses that happen as we are going from one place to the next, which are only there for a second, and might be forgotten if not documented in a photograph.

I earned my BFA at Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA. My work has been featured in Communication Arts, PDN, and Martha Stewart Magazine and I have worked with brands like Bobbi Brown, La Mer, Van Cleef & Arpels, Sanrio, Apolis, and Minnow Swim.
