After an initial focus on literary arts, Alisha became enraptured by an author’s ability to spin words to life on paper. This was her bridge to art in other expressions, and it wasn’t long before pen and paper turned into a camera and a darkroom. Alisha’s poetic approach is enhanced by the use of medium format film allowing her to produce timeless, painterly quality images. 

She has photographed love stories from Napa Valley to the mountains of Highlands, North Carolina, the rolling hills of Tuscany and regal Paris. She and her husband Patrick have been married for fifteen years. They share three little ones, two dogs and one cat in Mountain Brook, AL. Alisha is honored to have her work regularly featured in Style Me Pretty, Magnolia Rouge, Southern Weddings, and Ruffled among others.
