I feel truly blessed to be able to follow my dream of being a photographer. I absolutely LOVE what I do! From the time I picked up a camera, I was obsessed with taking pretty pictures. After 12 years, my focus has shifted… I have come to realize that one of the most important parts of my job is telling your story through my lens. If I’m photographing your wedding day, I focus on authentic, natural and real moments. If I’m photographing your senior pictures, your personality and inner beauty will shine through! These are the moments that you will forever cherish and remember. Welcome to the blog. I can’t wait for the opportunity to capture YOU and tell your story!
There are some days when I have to pinch myself to make sure it’s real because I feel like I’m the luckiest girl around to love my job soooo much! It’s girls like this beautiful Class of 2018 senior, Alyssa who make my days so happy!! I mean seriously…… fashion, beauty, sweeeeeet girls and hanging out with this wonderful senior and her awesome mama. It truly doesn’t get any better than this! Alyssa ROCKED her senior session. She was confident, absolutely gorgeous, and my camera was obsessed with her look. I couldn’t get enough of you girl!
Alyssa would describe her personality as independent, athletic, and she loves to be outside. Her nickname is “A-Mart” She is ultra competitive and super organized! After high school, she plans on attending Heartland Community College and wants to major in nursing. She participates in tennis and softball and serves on Student Council. Did you know she has a fun ride scholarship to Heartland for softball! Yep, she’s that good!
Alyssa would describe her perfect day as waking up and eating chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast with her friends on the beach. Followed by hiking and adventuring somewhere beautiful outdoors, going paddle boarding, and then jet skiing on the ocean. If money were no object, Alyssa would travel to Hawaii, visit the beaches, climb volcanoes and of course spend time in the ocean. She would finish her day by going to an animal shelter and playing with the puppies. She loves dogs so much that if she could have one wish granted, she would have sooooo many dogs, she wouldn’t have anywhere to put them all.
Wanna hear her hidden talent?! It’s so funny because Alyssa is kind of shy and quiet until you get to know her…..I can’t even picture her doing it, LOL.. she said “burping on command!” Hilarious Alyssa; you make me smile!
Most treasured possession – “my car and it also happens to store half of my closet too.”
Biggest pet peeves – ” hearing someone eat something crunchy and slow drivers/walkers”
Three things on her bucket list: 1. Coach softball 2. Own a bunch of puppies 3. Travel all over the world
Her hero is her grandma because she makes the best pie and she’s always watching over everyone and she’s a great overall person. The most influential person in her life is her dad because “he has helped me for so many years with sports and always supported me through it all. He has always pushed me to do my best and taught me everything I know about softball. Both of my parents support me in anything that I do and somehow they put up with my sass!”
Here are some of Alyssa’s fun favorites:
Ten years from now, ” I see myself working as a nurse anesthetist and living in an apartment with dogs!
