Hello! My name is Alisha Irish. Thank you for taking the time to visit my site!
I have been developing my passion for art and photography since I discovered my talents in High school. My fellow art teachers and mentors encouraged me to pursue it as a career, and off I went to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Studio Art at the University of Southern Maine. Since I graduated in 2012, I have been documenting my own love story. I am celebrating five years of marriage with the love of my life and best friend who has been very supportive of my growing business. Together we have two beautiful little girls. Now that my business has become more demanding, I have chosen to leave my job in education to be home with my children who keep me on my toes. We enjoy singing and dancing, getting crafty and adventuring. At age 2 1/2 and 4, it is inspiring to see them developing an imagination for the world around them. I try to capture all these special moments with my camera as I know how quickly they can fade.
I have always had a great connection with children and it is a real joy to work with them and their families. I have experience with photographing 40 weddings at 29 years old working for myself and assisting other well known photographers in the area. I have not only developed a strong portfolio of work, but have learned so much about the industry and how to run a small business committed to serving local families. As competitive as it may be, I have found a way to use my talent to offer something that they can’t compete with. There are many accomplished photographers in the area, but hardly any who also offer custom artwork and design services. My services allow clients to make a big impact on their guests through personalized save-the-dates, invitations and thank you cards. I even offer custom paintings and illustrations for items on their wedding planning checklist or of their favorite photo as part of their investment. A service that is hard to put a price on, but I value my clients and want to give them something more than just beautiful images.
I want to utilize my training and skills to do what I love and share my passion with you! I put the same effort into a clients session as I do an oil painting and it shows. Your experience will be one to remember and you’ll shed happy tears over your investment for many years to come. Inspire me with your story and I will find a special way that suits you to share with your friends and family!
