about us


Hi there !!

I am Heather and fully disclosure;  I am epically bad at these bio pieces. So what can I tell you about me without sounding like an ad for a matchmaking site. My friends will tell you that I am a hippie at heart. 

I do feel a bit of a Janis Joplin soul ( I drive a VW Bug named Herbie), but maybe with a twist of Meryl Streep. 

I am a wife and partner to the greatest man. 

We celebrated our 30 year anniversary with a vow renewal at the same venue; on the same day. It was epic and awesome and so absolutely perfect. I am a mom and a grandma.  Yes; I am that old. Well at least in earth years; my soul feels about 31 and I can still do the same absolutely ridiculous; incredibly corny dance moves that I did at that age.

I love animals all animals. I am fur-mom to a Weimaraner and two Chinese crested and if you want to see me cry show me one of those facebook videos or a Disney movie.I am a lover of life.  


I love every exquisite, magical moment.

I value every connection;  the mystical bond that connects us to each other; it fascinates me and drives me to capture it. I believe in the beauty that exists in everyone. I love to laugh; the world needs more laughter.

I love beautiful things that make me cry.  I love nature; my hubby gave life back to a vintage trailer and we spend time together where there is no cell service, but lots of space to create memories. I believe in creativity; in pushing the limits.  I love the human face; the stories a portrait can tell. We all have stories; we all need to share those stories.  


I love light; like really love it.  

Light can set a mood; underline a mood or be completely over the top and in your face; but it is the thread that joins every story.

Not sure if you can tell by now but photography is not my job;  its driven by my soul and a yearning to create incredible stories of connection.

I am so epically excited to meet you and so pumped to see what you create.

Hi I am Aleisha,

 I love living in the quiet countryside with my husband Matt and daughters Evelynne and May. As a little girl, my mom and I would sit on the front porch on a rainy day and listen to the rain and thunder.

Now that I have my own front porch I still listen to thunderstorms and watch the rain I love experiencing this tradition with my daughters.

My love of natural beauty and the outdoors is woven into the images I take, which are simple and timeless.  I focus on my couples capturing their emotions and memories as they are experiencing them.

I cherish the lasting relationships that are built with all of my clients. 


I love LOVE and I can't wait to meet and guide you in your photography journey!
