I am a full time photographer. I photograph, families, couples, beach sessions and boudoir. I started off as a teacher and photographer which is something I loved but now I’ve left teaching to take photography full time! This job allows me to raise my son and still be creative. I started my photography business as Alyssa Marie Photography 7 years ago! Now I have transformed my business from just family and weddings into a lifestyle and also portrait business.
