how it works

Over here, our heart is to see you connect with some incredible things happening around the world. When you book a session, exactly $100 of your booking is sent to the currently featured organization. It's that straightforward.

I am careful and intentional about who is being featured. Having worked for a few years with non-profits, I know that it is important to know exactly where your money is going. It is also equally as important to support things are being run in a sustainable way that produce long-lasting effects.

Most of the organizations featured are ones with whom I have personally worked. The others have people I know and trust involved.

So read below to find out the details of those with whom you will be connecting when you book this month.

WHAT WE're ABOUT

>

01

One day I want you to remember these moments- the gorgeous simplicity of a genuine connection or the beautiful mess of motherhood or whatever your life is right now.

SIMPLICITY & REAL LIFE ARE BEAUTIFUL

02

Gorgeous images of the authentic you require a certain level of ease. We'll have fun, not take anything too seriously, and have some laughs. It's be fun, I promise!

THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH LAUGHTER

It's so wonderful when the location of the session holds some meaning for you personally whether it's your home, a space you frequent, or some place that just speaks to you. If you're having a hard time coming up with a place- no worries! We can collaborate on the spot that's perfect for you. If you're interested in booking a session; but don't live in the D.C. Metro area, contact me anyway. I love to travel!

We all have smart phones with a camera, but if you're here, it's probably because you see the value in your "now" documented as art.  Here are a few other things you might want to know about your photo session.

clothing choices

location, location, location!


the goal for our photo shoot is to have it be relaxed and natural. it's wonderful when your clothes reflect this. Wear what makes you feel relaxed and beautiful. 

the routine is a relaxed, at-home setting done sometime with in the first couple weeks of life. try to schedule the newborn session at least two months in advance.

The day we received the photographs, my heart almost stopped. Alyssa gave me the gift of seeing everything with new eyes. She captured my children's personalities perfectly, gave my husband and I photographs we wish we could have had at our wedding, and did it all while making this camera shy girl comfortable!

IT DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS! I CANNOT GO OVERBOARD ON HOW INCREDIBLY TALENTED ALYSSA IS- IT'S RARE TO FIND SOMEONE SO GOOD AT WHAT SHE DOES. SHE IS BRILLIANT WHEN IT COMES TO LIGHTING AND ANGLES BUT WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT HER WORK IS HER ABILITY TO CAPTURE MY FAMILY IN SETTINGS AND SHOTS WHERE WE ARE JUST BEING OURSELVES. SHE MAKES US LAUGH AND RELAX.

Alyssa was fantastic to work with- easy, calm and relaxed. My husband who is actually quite shy and introverted felt really comfortable and surprisingly enjoyed himself!

The morning of our photo shoot I was stressed as any brand new, first time mom would be. But as soon as Alyssa came in I relaxed as she took over and just did an amazing job. I cannot thank her enough for capturing our baby girl and new family of three.
