My name is Allyssa. I have been taking photos for as long as I can remember. There hasn't been a time in my life where I haven't had a camera in my hand. My love for photography came from my grandmother. From the time I could remember, I could hear her voice telling me to "stand still and say cheese." The older I have gotten, the more I have understood and appreciated her doing that. Not only because it gave me great memories, but, it gave me an interest in something that would eventually become my passion. That sweet joy I feel of capturing small moments in time and turning them into memories that will last a lifetime. I do this as often as I can with my family, and I can't wait to do this with yours.
