My story is something of a beautiful mess, a journey that has been both complicated and messy. I intimately snuggled with mental health, experiencing its challenges firsthand, which ignited a passion within me to become a devoted advocate for it. Though I pour my heart into photography, my ultimate life goal is to use my talents to help others and to build connections between strangers.

Everything in my life changed when I found Jesus. It was an encounter that flipped my life for the better. In discovering Him, I learned to live with a purpose to serve others, rather than seeking praise or recognition. This newfound perspective has been a guiding light, shaping my path and deepening my connection to humanity and the world.

Since embracing Jesus, I have discovered new dimensions of myself and a profound sense of purpose. I have found that my true calling lies in capturing moments and showcasing God's creation through my lens.

Inspired by Jesus and the stories from the Bible, I infuse my work with spirituality, allowing His teachings to guide and inspire every frame.

I once struggled incredibly with alcohol, depression and anxiety thinking I would not make it anywhere and I want people to look at me and witness the incredible accomplishments that can be achieved when we surrender to His guidance and grace. Through overcoming countless hurdles and personal journeys, I have cultivated a passionate dedication to the Lord, mental health advocacy, and serving others.

My mission is to spread awareness, compassion, and hope. By sharing my own struggles and admitting to my past mistakes, I aim to inspire others to embark on their own paths of healing, discovery, and selfless service. Through my work, I strive to make a positive impact, shining a light on the beauty of the human spirit and reminding others of their inherent worth.

Through it all, I am a testament to the power of resilience, faith, and the unwavering love of Jesus Christ.

We all have a story,  Here's mine. 

I am Alyssa, Houston + East coast based photographer + mental health advocate.

I believe that the moments you want to remember aren't always perfect or scripted, they are uncut, raw and writhing with emotion.

Life is too boring to not feel any emotions. We endure so much and it is one of my favorite things about living, learning to appreciate the crappy moments just as much as the mountain top moments.
