Hi, I'm Alyssa!

Besides my role as a photographer, I'm deeply committed to being a special education teacher and currently serve as a teacher coach. In both realms, I witness the beautiful growth and authenticity of young individuals, and there's a magical feeling that comes with crafting enduring memories.

As a working mom of three, I completely empathize with the limited time we have! That's why I'm not just a photographer, but a partner in simplifying your experience. Picture this: a full-service photography journey where I take care of all the details. From providing a complete client wardrobe to creating stunning wall art and albums, I've got you covered. This means you can focus on being present in the moment, rather than worrying about the logistics.

The most rewarding aspect of my work is building connections with the families I assist. It's truly a wonderful journey to accompany families through various stages – from maternity to newborn and beyond.

One of my greatest passions is empowering women to embrace their presence in photographs, allowing them to see themselves as they truly are. Capturing the elegance and essence of mothers is something I deeply cherish. I'm dedicated to uplifting and supporting you every step of the way. Together, we'll curate an exquisite family artwork collection that will grace your home with timeless beauty.

In a world where moms often find themselves pressed for time, I understand the challenges of juggling responsibilities firsthanD

"Alyssa was very professional and welcoming! The studio was organized, well-lit and decorated, and she had so many outfits and props available! She worked so well with my daughter to make her smile and giggle. Alyssa’s pictures were amazing! Literally so beautiful. I loved how she showed me a partial edit on a few during the shoot just to get a preview of what would be sent later. Her photos were pristine."                                        -Bordeaux Crouse-

Thank you Stickan Photography for all the amazing newborn, milestone
and family photos we have had taken over the past couple years…

Stickan Photography has been so good to myself & my daughter!
 The pictures are more then I could ever imagine them to be!

I felt so at ease with Alyssa. She made the whole experience fun and special.
 My photos are more than I could ever ask for.

Love love love the studio and can't wait to see how our photos turned out!
Our first family photo was a success! Thank you!!!!

Stickan Photography did a wonderful job capturing my family.
We always have a great experience with Alyssa!
The photos that come back to us are not only quickly received, but gorgeous and timeless shots we will cherish forever.
I highly recommend Stickan photography to all Momma’s!

LOVED WORKING WITH BOTH ALYSSA AND LUKE! They made my day so special and made sure to get all the pictures I asked for and more!!! Rain or shine they’re AMAZING ❤️❤️

Alyssa has done a couple photo shoots of my babies and family. She is so wonderful to work with- patient, kind and knows how to make people feel comfortable. The pictures captured our kids' personalities and my family loves looking back on our photos to remember what our little ones were like as time seems to fly by. Alyssa is very professional and always got our pictures back to us quickly. Her new studio is beautiful and I love that I can come and look through her outfits/ props instead of having to buy my own! I would definitely recommend Alyssa to anyone looking for pregnancy, newborn or family photos!

Highly recommend this photographer.
Professional, great vibe & beautiful studio. Pictures turned out wonderful.

My family and I had an amazing experience with Stickan Photography. Alyssa is so gentle and patient with her littlest clients. I never felt rushed while we waited for my baby to settle into place or he got hungry. She made us all feel so welcome in her studio space. The final result of photos took my breath away and it was so hard to choose my favorites. She captured my family and son perfectly. I cannot wait to return for 1 year photos, will definitely be going back to Stickan Photography. Her approach and style really allow your family and baby to shine and be the focus! She makes it easy for you by having great props and even outfits if you choose to use them.
