Hi, I'm alysha
I'm Alysha, your Okanagan photographer with a passion for creating sentimental portrait experiences and timeless heirlooms that will grace your walls and be cherished for generations. Gratitude fills my heart as you contemplate choosing me to capture your precious moments. As a wife and mother of two, I deeply understand the significance of family, and my artistry is dedicated to freezing the beauty of legacy and motherhood in every frame.
Capturing the essence of each unique individual is my artistic pursuit, aiming to document moments that evoke emotion and suspend time, even if just for a fleeting moment. Just as I value the precious time with my own beautiful children, I understand the importance of your time and the fleeting nature of these precious moments. Let me guide you through this photographic journey, from the initial booking to carefully selecting everlasting heirloom pieces. With a blend of posed and lifestyle photography, I'll help you choose the perfect wardrobe, find the ideal location, and ensure that the entire portrait experience is both enjoyable and memorable for you and your family.
Thank you for considering me; I'm eager to meet you and craft beautiful images that will be treasured for a lifetime.
wonderfully lively children who seem to be growing at the speed of light. As a mother, I often find myself immersed in the beauty of old photographs, reflecting on the swift passage of time, and feeling an overwhelming sense of gratitude for the precious moments captured through my lens, creating a treasury of memories for my family.
While the majority of my life was spent in the Lower Mainland, the pivotal year of 2020 led my husband and me to a life-changing decision—to relocate our family from Mission to the picturesque town of Peachland in the Okanagan. This move was more than a change of address; it was a conscious step toward transforming our dream of raising our family in the idyllic Okanagan into a beautiful reality.
My background story
en years ago, I married my best friend, Brian, in the vibrant city of Las Vegas. Our journey together has blessed us with two

These 3 humans are my everything!! My husband Brian and I have been together for a total of 20 years. We got married on our 10 year dating anniversary 03.15.13 and shortly after had our first son, Nixon. A few years later, we finally got the courage to add another baby to the mix. That was when we welcomed our daughter, Brooklyn, into the world and our family was complete. I love being able to capture my family and leave a legacy of photographs telling the story of their lives.

Whether it's exploring Beautiful BC or heading to a tropical destination (really anywhere that has a beach, sunshine and includes a mimosa or two), you can count me in!
Living in the Lower Mainland we were always wanting to "get away" whenever we could. When we moved to our home in Peachland, we wanted our own little piece of paradise, somewhere we would never be wanting to escape from. And we found it!

One of my favourite past times is DIY home renovations! I love wood working and seeing my plans come together. I get a lot of my inspiration from Pinterest and my husband just "loves" when I come up with new ideas for him to finish lol.

I have always loved getting lost in meaningful song lyrics or a good beat, but most of the time you can find me blasting some hip hop or gangsta rap. Where are all my hip hop fans at?

I crave certain foods depending on my mood! Some days you will find me reaching for the chocolate, Aero and Kit Kat are my two favs. Other days you will find me devouring a bag of Old Dutch Ketchup chips. Pair it with a glass of cab sav... yum! It's all about balance right? lol
cupcakes are my favourite!

Choosing Alysha as my photographer was a no-brainer for me – I craved that cozy in-studio vibe, plus their editing game is top-notch! As I never had a newborn session with my first, the lead-up to the maternity/newborn session had me feeling a delightful mix of excitement and "What on earth should I expect?" vibes. But guess what? The session itself? A blast! My absolute favorite part? The photographer's knack for chatting with us throughout – it made everything feel like a fun family hangout. Post-session, I was on cloud nine, knowing those photos were going to be pure magic. Quick tip for fellow moms considering a session: Speak up about what you want, and watch the magic happen!
We love working with Alysha so much that we keep going back! I hired her to do our daughters newborn photos, and when she was 9days old we took her to the studio, and Alysha was so amazing with her! I have no idea how she kept June calm and happy when she was generally a bit of a colicky baby. I think it really helps that she’s a mom herself, I watched her sooth my daughter right to sleep so she could get some photos of her sleeping. (I actually took some of her soothing methods home with me as a new mom and used them to get my baby to sleep at home lol) So awesome. We took our daughter back to get her 1 year old pics done and cake smash and couldn’t be happier with them. They’re so precious, we will enjoy them for a lifetime. Alysha is genuinely talented in capturing special moments with your family and the cherry on top is that she’s so friendly! We love her. We will be clients for life!

Alysha has been photographing our family since my daughter’s birth seven years ago. Year after year, she delivers amazing family photos. A great photographer (who is especially good dealing with small children) is invaluable. We are fortunate to have found Alysha!

My husband and I recently eloped and we had the pleasure of working with Alysha. The entire process was seamless. Alysha is a true professional with coordinating, generating ideas, she is patient, and produces amazing photographs. She blended in with our small group and made us feel comfortable while enjoying the process. I feel so lucky to have found her and would highly recommend her. We have small children and she was extra patient with their busy bodies to capture the perfect shots. Thank you Alysha!

The best part of being an #aspbride and #aspcouple is getting to know Alysha, and getting to work with her. She is the most wonderful, helpful, and talented photographer I have ever worked with. She went above and beyond expectations! On the day of our elopement she made me feel comfortable and stress free! She is a joy to be around. She captured every detail of our day, and the photos we got back from her are just amazing. She made sure she got every shot that I had wanted, and was very good at directing family/friends for the group photos!
I have gotten feed back from our family and friends who were in attendance, saying how much they adored Alysha, and too many compliments on the photos to count. I would travel back to the Okanagan for the sole purpose of having another portrait session with her! I can not recommend her enough. Huge thank you to Alysha for helping to make our elopement dreams come true :)

Being an #aspfamily means getting the best quality photos of your family, she captures the most special moments of our family, I am OBSESSED with all of our photos Alysha has taken of us. She makes you feel at ease, not awkward at all. Hands down my favourite photographer

Working with Alysha was completely stress free and fun. She was very professional and quite friendly. The pictures turned out perfect!! Alysha really went above and beyond, she stayed later than the allotted time. We honestly couldn't be happier with the whole experience. A definite recommendation from us!!
- Amber & Mark
We love having Alysha photograph our family! She has been photographing all our families memorable moments for the past 5 years. She has done our maternity, newborn, Christmas and family photos and each time is an amazing experience. She always comes with fun ideas on how to get the perfect photos and she always makes you feel comfortable in front of a camera. My son can be so serious when it comes to photos but she always gets him to crack a smile. She helped choose a location for our family photos and gave great advice on how to coordinate our clothing. The photos always turn out great and are delivered quickly. My son loves to sit down and look through all the photos we have had done. They are an amazing memory to have and we are so thankful to Alysha for capturing so many great family photos for us!

We love Alysha!!
We have updated pictures taken every year for Christmas as well as my daughter's first year. Maternity, Newborn and First Birthday. The quality of pictures is amazing and she is very fun to work with. Can't wait to use her again.

We absolutely LOVE working with Alysha! She took our family photos this summer in the lower mainland in the cutest location that we would have never even known about. It was a family mini-session and we had no idea what to expect, and let me tell you... the photos that came out of this were worth so much to us. I can't believe the quality that came out of this family photo mini session! Even though Alysha is located in Peachland (Okanagan BC) she came down to the lower mainland to do this photoshoot for us and a few other families. Whether you're in the lower mainland or Okanagan, you should definitely contact her for your family photos! - The P Family
