What is The Motherhood

Portrait and who is it for?

The inspiration behind The Motherhood Portrait comes from my own journey as a mother, cherishing the fleeting moments with my children and realizing just how swiftly these seasons pass us by. I wanted to create something meaningful for other mothers who, like me, find themselves yearning to preserve the sweetness of each passing moment.

Motherhood is a beautiful yet challenging journey, and this event is a celebration of you—regardless of the season you find yourself in. Every mother deserves to feel cherished, valued, and recognized for the incredible superwoman she is!

If  you find yourself often wishing time would slow down just a bit and longing to hold onto those intimate details forever, then this event is for you! Whether you’re a new mom or a seasoned one, with children of any age, you’re invited to join us for The Motherhood Portrait.

Session Style



This year, I’m simplifying things to highlight the essence of these sessions: capturing the beauty of motherhood. With a minimalistic backdrop, all attention will be on the heartfelt moments we’ll be photographing. You can dress up or stay cozy. The style is up to you…I am here to help!

This year I encourage bringing along a cherished item—a favorite stuffed animal, book, or blanket— however there’s no pressure if you prefer not to. You don’t need any extras; just bring yourself.

What is included?

    • Planning Call
    • Access to studio wardrobe or wardrobe assistance
    • Hair & Makeup 
    • Approximately 20 minute guided session with Alissa
    • Viewing gallery filled with images to choose from
    • Download 5 of your favorite images (with option to purchase full gallery if desired)
    • Highlight film set to music (similar to the one above)
    • Gift bag with extra special goodies for momma

What to expect

If you are getting your hair and makeup done plan to be with us for about 60 minutes. When you come in you’ll grab a drink and head to the hair and makeup artists. You’ll be with them for about 30 minutes. 

Once you are done with hair & makeup we’ll spend approximately 20 minutes shooting.

Rescheduling or Cancelation

The session fee is non-refundable. You may switch time spots if there is availability (request must be made at least 48 hours before event), but refunds are not issued for cancelations. If you must cancel, any money paid can be applied towards a future session with me.

In the unlikely event that The Motherhood Portrait can not be held on the scheduled day,  it will be rescheduled for another date.

What should I wear?

A complimentary studio wardrobe is  available for your use, however, you are not required to use it and there is no dress code. I am keeping the backdrop simple and clean so any style will work! However, I do recommend neutral light colors as they compliment my shooting and editing style.

After securing your session, you’ll receive an email from me with more info about this and how to begin preparing for your session. 

Can my partner/spouse be in these pictures?

These sessions are specifically created for mothers and their children. Dad’s will not be photographed during this event. 

If you are interested in a family session please reach out to me here.

Will I have the option to add time to my session?

Due to the nature of these sessions and out of respect for the other attendees, your session will end at the designated end time, even if you are running late. You are welcome to purchase two time slots if you would like more time.

How are these sessions different from your regular sessions?

Events are sort of a one stop shop so you get a little bit of everything included in the session. Events include extras such as a set number of digital images to download, highlight video, hair & makeup, and special gifts. Additionally the printed products available for purchase after the event are exclusive to attendees only.

Events are the only time I offer “mini” sessions like this.

What images are included in the session price?

Limited edition sessions include the session and a viewing gallery. You will  be able to download 5 of your favorite images as high resolution files with the option to purchase the full digital gallery if desired.
