“Alisha helped me find my style, my confidence, and my courage. I will remember this experience forever!”
After following Colehearted Photography on social media I knew she was the one to take our daughter's senior portraits. Her eye for photography is simply amazing. She guided us every step of the way - from helping with outfits suggestions to showing our daughter exactly how to pose and while capturing genuine smiles. Not to mention she is very professional and was so much fun to work with. She knows the city very well and takes you to the perfect location with great lighting. She is truly one of the best and it shows throughout her work, attitude and personality. She made our daughter feel comfortable and confident. We are simply in love with our amazing keepsake photo box and are so happy we have these beautiful photos to cherish forever."

We’re a family of 5, two teens, a 2nd grader, and a husband who isn’t crazy about having his photo taken. When I told my kids we were doing family photos, of course my teens groaned and rolled their eyes. Alisha was so kind, warm and funny she put all of us at ease. The session went by quickly and she captured so many amazing shots. After the session ended all 3 of my kids said that it was the most fun they had ever had doing photos. I absolutely love our photos and Alisha is stuck with us for sure!"

Alisha has been capturing our family with stunning photos for years. From family shoots, to precious newborn sessions, to capturing our 3 crazy boys and their personalities perfectly - Alisha is always our first call! Her locations and different style ideas keep our photos unique. She takes time to make sure each and every picture is worthy of hanging on your wall - ours are filled with her shots! Alisha is incredibly talented, kind, phenomenal with littles, and makes her shoots fun for the entire family! I’ll never go anywhere else because I can always count on Alisha to take beautiful photos of our family. I will always recommend her to everyone!”

I have done a couple shoots with Alisha and they were all so fun. I went to her for my senior portraits because I love her style and how she captures your personality perfectly. My favorite was when we did a 4th of July shoot on the lake and I met a bunch of girls and had a great time!! I am constantly laughing and having so much fun!!
She makes you feel comfortable and she is a great hype up girl. She’s so personable and I cannot wait for another shoot with her in the future."

Alisha was all that we hoped for and more! She took time to make sure we well prepared for our photo session and scouted the best location for the season. Our daughter’s pictures are timeless and beyond beautiful! We will treasure them always! We look forward to returning in a couple of years for our boys. If you want the best portraits see Alisha!!"

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."

Alisha has been our "go to" photographer for over five years and always delivers. I am continuously impressed with how her photos are natural, not posed, and capture exactly who we really are. She is an artist who knows how to capture light, colors and new angles that result in pictures that are truly breathtaking. And to top it off, she is a momma to four handsome boys and knows exactly how to bring in some fun making it a stress free family shoot experience. My kids love her!"
