Alyssa specializes in lifestyle portraiture that captures human connection and real-life. In addition, she travels internationally for her storytelling work and has a passion for using her camera in a way that imparts respect and affirms dignity while advocating for social justice issues.

My camera has become a tool to document a piece of this for the people I meet. I'm most passionate about telling the stories of the marginalized and forgotten of our world in a way that affirms dignity and love.
