I am a natural light family and newborn photographer happily tucked away in the mountains of Central Oregon with my red heads. I serve people who are looking for a fun, carefree session to capture the love that is their family.

A few of my favorite things

Hi there, I'm Alisa.

I am the only blonde living in a sea of red heads {yes, even my dog} living the good life in beautiful Bend, Oregon. I am mostly known for for loud well-known laugh, passion for all things colorful and my desire to find the best plate of nachos in town.  People often refer to me as Mrs. Hayes, mommy or honey. I love serving the world by loving others well and capturing moments for my clients to cherish forever.  When I'm not busy working on photography, you can catch me in a classroom full of third graders teaching reading, writing and math and encouraging them and molding them to become the best versions of themselves they can be.

If you're dying to hear more, here are five things you might not know about me:

1. I'm originally from Montana and love all things Big Sky Country. Can you say huckleberry ice cream?

2. My hubby and I both played college basketball so naturally the NCAA tournament is like Christmas in our household.

3. I would go door to door in my neighborhood growing up selling tickets to a show I was producing, directing, choreographing, and staring in. A true boss lady from the start.

4. My mom had to pay me to wear jeans in second grade- I joke about this with my students now.

5. My favorite ice cream in the whole world is Love Potion #31 from Baskin Robbins. It only comes out in the month of February and my husband buys a pint a week for me- the easiest Valentine's Day gift ever.
