"We thought the images you captured were gorgeous!!!! I have no idea how I am going to choose which ones to print! Thanks again for everything. My husband and I feel like we will never go to a portrait studio again! This was was so much more fun and with more beautiful pictures!"
Vicky, Long Grove, IL

"Congrats on the expansion of your business... I am not surprised. You are quite gifted! I recommend you to everyone and will continue to do so. It is rare to find someone so gifted, so kind, easy to work with, and great with kids. You are just a sweet heart."
Katie D., Arllington Heights, IL

"I ordered a few images of your photos immediately and now am looking at them to blow up a few.
I want to thank you again. You took so many beautiful shots of our family and little girl. They are darling. You are very talented. It's clear you also love what you do!"
Krys, Niles, IL

"Oh my goodness! You rock Alysa!!!  These pics are great!"
Katie N., Arlington Heights, IL

"We had an amazing time with Alysa.  She was wonderful with the kids and even the difficult adults. Always smiling, always professional, and very creative with her photos! The final pictures were well above and beyond our expectations. We will be using her talents again, without a doubt!"
Kerry, Chicago, IL

"Alysa did a great job and was a PRO with the kids! The whole family liked her positive, upbeat energy. The photos were excellent and exceeded our expectations. We’re looking forward to working with her again!"
Ann, Long Grove, IL

"Our sessions with Alysa are clearly creative. She makes my family and I feel so comfortable,
in any setting. Before we know it we forget the camera is there and just enjoy each other's company. The simplest shot becomes the most treasured, capturing every emotion and more. Her unique spin on our precious moments are unforgettable."
Sara, Chicago, IL

"Alysa is a phenomenal photographer and we couldn't be happier with our pictures! Our photos turned out exactly like we hoped, and Alysa is very personable and we felt right at home being with her!"
Nicole and Joe, Kalamazoo, MI

"Alysa instantly connected with my three young boys when she came to my home to photograph them. She spent a couple of hours with us, capturing the boys in their 'natural habitat, (inside, outside, upstairs, downstairs), and capturing their true natures (climbing, tackling, running, laughing, screaming). Her pictures were proof that not only does she understand the art of photography, but also how to capture the joy in a child's eyes and the love in a parent's heart. We love our pictures!"
Karen, Park Ridge, IL

"Alysa met us with a big smile and an equally big camera bag, jumped into our car and off we went! She had mapped out several spots that she knew would look great for my daughter's senior pictures. Since she had scouted them out in advance she knew exactly where to go and the fun began! Ideas, lighting, props, poses, outfit changes... we had the best time...and the next day we got a "preview" was awesome! Soon after she sent us a disc of edited pictures... each one better than the daughter was thrilled and so was I! We still can't decide which one is our favorite! We loooved working with Alysa and can't wait to do it again!"
Patty, Des Plaines, IL
