Hey there & welcome!
Thanks for poking around and checking my work out!!! Photography has become a huge part of my life and it means a lot to me that you are here and are wanting to learn more! *ahem* My name is Alissa, I am a 20-something-year-old with a love of art and a passion for people. I have a big family, pets scare me, I am a fan of old things (not food) and Costco's chocolate cake is life. I grew up in Maryland– the crab state. I don't like crabs, so I left. I've been in the wide-skied Utah since then and hop between here and the coast pretty regularly
My obsession with photography began in middle school, when I had thick side bangs and a dinky point-and-shoot camera. I sold my hair online so I could upgrade my camera and began unabashedly shoving it in people's faces... aaaand the rest is history :) So here I am now, jumping at any opportunity to whip my camera out. I love experimenting and exploring new scenes; if that means shooting in a gas station, going to art gallery or to my grandma's living room, heck, YES. I am all about capturing what means a lot to people, or what they deem interesting.
As far as what a shoot with me looks like, I am more of a go-with-the-flow kinda girl. I will give you general direction, yes, but it is really important to me that I capture you. The little habits, the squinty eyes when you look at the sun, the way you shove your hands in your pockets, or the funny faces you throw at your person. I want to capture truth. If you are looking for someone who will pose you every shot and who will say cheese every time they press the shutter, I will probably suggest looking elsewhere for your dream photographer. BUT if you are totally vibing with me here, EMAIL ME, or CALL ME, or just yell my name really loud.
