My name is Alyssa Keys and I have been a professional photographer since 2013.
I grew up in Portland, Oregon where I filled my life with creativity. I now reside in Grass Valley, California but I will travel anywhere for love. Photography is more than just an art form for me, it is a spirit of self-discovery and connection that fuels my life in powerful ways. My passion in life is photographing people in love, nature hikes with expansive views, dips in the Yuba River, paddle-boarding majestic lakes and discovering vintage fashion. I live a life of magic and adventure, traveling the west coast and beyond, chasing waterfalls and stunning landscapes.
I often get asked how I got into photography. Growing up I was creative in many ways and loved to capture photos with my family’s 35mm camera. I loved the surprise of not knowing what you were going to get. When the photos were developed, I was always excited to see how they turned out. Through these experiences, I naturally became a photographer. I then went on to study photography in college and the essence of natural lighting. Since then, I have always had a camera in my hand, capturing people in their true form.
I find magic in every movement and never fail to be one of the most excited people in the room. I have a strong connection to music. It fills my life and I always have the right playlist for my photo sessions. I specialize in creating a relaxed yet dynamic environment to help with any nervous feelings that may arise from the experience of being in front of a camera. Though this connected style of shooting, I’m able to capture the essence of who my clients are while maintaining the authenticity of the moment.
I would absolutely love to be your photographer!
