Alissa graduated from Grand Valley State University in 2012 with a B.A.  in Photography and a B.S. in Natural Resource Management.  Her personal work is devoted to connecting the two through fashion imagery.

Curious with nature photography around the house, she surprised herself one day by placing in the Visual Arts Scholarship Award competition in grade school.  Thus began the exploration of fashion through portraiture.  Highly stylized fashion portraits captured her attention, and soon every aspect - hair, makeup, clothing, location, concept, etc. - became a part of every shoot.  She prides herself in her creative art direction as well as natural light use. 

Alissa currently focuses on editorial submissions, fashion bloggers, and model tests.
