Q&A with Alisha, Owner
What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
When photographing a session my first goal is to make my clients feel comfortable and feel at ease. I am human and I always seem to find someway to unintentionally show them that (whether that be tripping, shooting with my fly down, stepping in a mound of ants, or sitting in goose crap).
So, my camera-class students can be assured that the class will be light hearted and fun—no stiff stuff here.
Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?
What I enjoy most about being a photographer is having the ability to give someone something that most others can't. I heard a quote once that I love: "Pictures stay the same, but the people in them change."
It's a great feeling being able to freeze a person into a time capsule of who they once were as a reminder to all of those who love them.
I provide memories that don't fade.
This class will help people to capture their own family and personal memories just a little bit better as their skill set widens.
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
I was the photo editor in my high school year book a million years ago.
Since then, I have toted a camera and haven't stopped.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
I have a degree in professional photography, and am continuing my education constantly.
I hope to one day be able to call myself "master photographer" through the Professional Photographer of America's system.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Captured Memories Photography has a very personal approach during a session. We like to interact with our clients and make sure everyone is having a good time. We want your experience to be as wonderful as your portraits are.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I have four amazing children myself and feel that you can never capture enough of those memories from their childhood. I wanted to be able to capture the essence of a family, a child a moment and give that tangible memory to others.
What do you love most about your job?
I love working with people. It is always so much fun to get to know a child, a family or a couple and help them start or continue a chapter in their lives.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
I am an amazing photographer who is very personal and creative.
They have a simply gorgeous selection of bridal gowns, veils, and accessories to give you that perfect look on your special day.

Clarity’s photographers not only customize sessions to clients, they also get to know their clients during shoots for families, newborns, kids, and moms-to-be. By engaging with clients during consultations, and interacting with their subjects during shoots, even playing and singing with the kids in the family, the photographers at Clarity make every session a personal experience. Images can be preserved on photo discs and turned into keepsakes with add-ons such as baby books and custom photo albums.
