Hi - I'm Alisha.
I'm so happy you're here.
I'm a Yankee-turned-southerner, beer-drinking, tattoo-loving ocean addict who laughs at her own jokes and loves openly and unabashedly.
I'm a digital marketer by default, but a photographer by choice. I was born and raised in New Hampshire but have been in Wilmington since 2010.
This is a shot from my own wedding boudoir session shot back in 2014.
I had pretty much no idea what boudoir portraits were at that time, but I decided to go for it. I'm so glad I did - I felt gorgeous, strong and sexy. It was incredible!
After working in marketing for 8 years, I was ready for change. I wanted to do something that really lit my fire and gave me purpose.
I thought back to that session and how it made me feel. Now here I am, with a Wilmington, NC boudoir photography studio and a mission to empower women!
I love to make women feel beautiful and strong...
...because that's what we are! My goal for each session is for you to be comfortable, confident, and having a blast. We'll capture images that will make you say, "That's me?! Oh, hell yeah!"
You're going to have nerves to start. You're going to worry that you look awkward. You're going to think, "I have no idea how to pose!" Guess what, chica - that's totally normal. And that's what I'm here for!
I probably know how you feel.
At least partially. I don't want to make too many assumptions but as a woman myself, I've likely experienced similar emotional journeys, self-reflections, heartache and joy. I've struggled with family issues, mental illness, the loss of a pregnancy and body confidence, just like anyone else.
I want to work with you to use these complex, personal experiences to create portraits that are not only a true reflection of you, but also a means of healing, growth or whatever your ultimate goals for your session may be.
Looking for a little more info about the experience and the products I offer?
Well, right this way...
C'mon girl, let's chat.
Whether it's over the phone, a coffee or a cocktail. I look forward to getting to know you!
