About Me


Hi! My name is Alissa and I'm the person behind the camera at My Lemonade Photography! My love for photography started in high school when my dad gave me his old Canon AE-1 and I found myself wanting to learn everything about it and what it could do. A few years later I found a happy place in the college dark room...but pursued my passion for medicine and became a doctor instead. Then life threw some unexpected twists my way. I found myself redefining what was truly important in my life and along with that re-found my love for photography but also the true importance in capturing the moments that make us who we are. My goal with every photograph is to capture those moments that we never want to forget!


And about the name - during one of those ugly cry moments of

"This is Us" there was a quote that I couldn't get out of my head: 

"I like to think that one day you'll be explaining that you took the sourest lemons that life had to offer and turned them into something resembling lemonade." This is My Lemonade.
