 "LIFE IS ONCE, FOREVER" 

-HENRI CARTIER BRESSON 

Hey. My name is Alisha, and I'm infatuated with images that make me forget to breath. With one foot in the center of chaos and a gaze fixed forward, I strive to unobstrusively integrate myself into the energy of a moment to record genuine, unfiltered emotion.

I want to photograph who you are, not who you think you need to be...

With years of practice photographing for not only large institutional organizations, but small businesses, non-profits and for myself as well, I've learned the subtle art of being within an experience without disrupting it. I take great pride in the years I've spent slowly building my skill set and brand and would like to invite you to build a relationship with me based on your photographic needs.   

 

My primary photography interests include portraiture and my style is ever evolving. While I do create my shoots around a person's world of effect, I consider my work to be "lived-style" as opposed to "life-style". To me, "life-style" images seem to invoke a constructed aesthetic seemingly untrue to the subject's actual life. I want to photograph who you are, not who you think you need to be for my camera or someone else's approval of your images.
