Preserving your love through timeless and intentional imagery

“There truly is no on like Alissa. Her vision, ability to trust the process in natural settings, and her gift for storytelling through even just one photo is unlike anything I could have hoped for. I will continue to trust Alissa with capturing the most precious moments in my life for years to come.” 

– Emily M.

Welcome

Whether you are photographed at a beautiful Lake Michigan beach, in the dreamy tall grasses of the dunes, or in my historic Manistee studio, I believe simplicity is key in capturing the unique beauty within real relationships…. turning it into artwork that you can feel.

When you hold a photograph or album in your hands I want you to remember what your full belly felt like beneath your hands, to smell fresh baby skin again, to feel soft coils of hair running through your fingers, or hear the giggle that only lasted for a short season.

It is my hope that my imagery will transport you back to moments that have been left to memories… so that you can truly appreciate where you have been, where you are, and where you will go.

Hello!

I’m Alissa

Believer, wife and momma to 4 wildly beautiful souls. I’m a lover of life and intimate connections. I have a true belief that, while motherhood is unbelievably messy and hard, it is sprinkled with magic that is waiting to be discovered and captured forever in a photograph.

“Alissa was absolutely AMAZING! She worked with me long distance from California for months and was so helpful and responsive from the beginning to the end. She heard my ideas and made them even better. I have many of the photos hanging in my house and just love looking at them. No other photographer will do for me!”
