I'm Alisha!  I'm a Northern California photographer who specializes in weddings and styled lifestyle photography that brings out the fresh, fun, and colorful side of life!

One thing that lies at the bottom of everything I do: I love making people happy.

I have always sought to bring out the smiles and laughs and really see the true individual in front of me. My hope is that when you look at the pictures on your walls, go through your family albums, or share your holiday cards, that you smile, your friends smile, and your heart smiles. I want to capture your family just as they are with all of their unique quirks, curiosities, and expressions.

Just for fun my favorite things in life are my husband, my four boys, my Canon camera, being a football mom, boating, the 49ers, running, dancing, watching sports, shopping, and of course laughter and smiles.
But that's enough about me.
I look forward to finding out more about you
and I hope to see you through my lens soon!

Simply call, email, or fill out the form on this site to schedule your session, and I will be happy to discuss the perfect location, clothing ideas, and go over what you are looking to get out of your session. After this first chat we can start planning your unique session! You will receive a welcome letter and session info sheets that will guide you through the entire session process, and help me make your experience amazing!

I hold my sessions on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Sunday evenings. I recommend shooting during a very precise time of day, generally the last sixty to ninety minutes before the sun has set. In June this will be much later than say December. Newborn sessions should be scheduled within the first 14 days of birth.

My stylized photo shoots are growing fast in popularity! These specialty photo shoots have a bit more eye candy than a typical session and are more focused around a theme and adding details to the shoot. Basically, we take something that you/your family/your child loves to do, and set up a theme around it!

Once we have finished booking your session, and shooting your session, that week I will either post a sneak peek on social media, or email you directly. Within 3 weeks of your shoot you will be able to view all of your photos. Within 6 weeks your prints and products will be ready for pickup!

the "Colehearted" look is colorful, candid, & contemporary.

I have a unique way of bringing my outdoor locations to life with the ability to transform colors, textures, and light.
My fun style is based on bringing out raw emotion from my clients, whether it be a tear from a newborn's mother, or a family tickle war,
I want to capture you and your family just as you are!

DO YOU OFFER DIGITAL FILES?
 
- Each of my collections include a selected number of digital files, and prints, which also include the printing rights to those specific images.
CAN YOU RECOMMEND A LOCATION?
 - Absolutely! I am always scouting and have shot at a selection of beautiful locations which I will be happy to discuss with you.
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?
 - Coordinate and compliment each other. Start out with a basic color palette and go from there. It can help to have one "rockstar" in the photos who carries a pattern, texture, or bold color in their outfit that the rest of the group's clothing or accessories pull from. Layer up! I love layers and colors, don't forget to bring earrings, scarves, hats, bracelets, belts, vests, necklaces and more. Even if we don't use everything we can use them as a prop. We will go over this in detail before your session as well.
SHOULD I GET A HAIRCUT?
 - Get haircuts at least a week before the shoot It might take a few days to grow into (or fond of) a haircut, especially if the scissors went amiss. This buffer time allows for some growth, tweaks, and perfections to the hairstyle prior to your session.
ARE WE ALLOWED TO BRING OUR FURRY FRIENDS?
 - Yes! Pets are allowed, they are as much of a part of the family as you are. If you bring your pet make sure to get some brisk exercise before the session, and bring some treats.
DO YOU TRAVEL?
 - Yes! I am a Sacramento based photographer, but I am available to travel anywhere! For sessions and weddings that require travel, travel fees and rates apply. Please contact me here for full travel information.

"

      Shout out to Alisha of Colehearted Photography. She has taken pictures for my husband and I since our engagement photos over 5 years ago. She has captured every life event since then, from our wedding to our second child’s six month photos. She’s so easy to work with, travels wherever we drag her and is always willing to do whatever crazy thing we ask of her. She always captures the sweet, real moments, is patient and works amazing with newborns, toddlers and husbands. I knew after she did such an amazing job on our engagement photos she would forever be our go to photographer."
