Dear Mom,

This is going to be an “I told you so moment,” so please don’t rub it in like I know you want to!

Thanks for letting me be me when I was growing up. I know there were some seriously cringe-worthy outfit choices I made. You always had my back no matter how ridiculous I looked!

Thank you for teaching me independence and patience. Those qualities have mostly served me very well over the years. Let’s not go into details about the time I decided I wanted “wispy” bangs in 5th grade… (even though the patience part definitely came in handy then!)

Mostly, I want to thank you for being my friend and a sounding board, and always being there for me (even when we were in the teenage-door-slamming-days… examples not necessary)!

I’m a better Mom and person because of you.

Your daughter, Alyssa (or, “Alyssa Roeder Hunt, Inc!” when you’re mad”)

As a way of saying Thanks to ALL Mom’s, I’ll be announcing a new project in the upcoming weeks. STAY TUNED!


I like my client’s holiday photos to be a surprise. I think they should be the first to share them. Now that the big rush is over I want to show you all the work I was busy with this Fall.

I’ll start with this darling family that happened to be my very last session before Christmas. The kids were so well behaved. They did a great job listening and we were able to get some darling images that will be forever cherished.

I love what I do. I especially love photographing families. I’m a sweaty mess by the time the session is done – but I get so in the zone I don’t even care. I love photographing families being… families. It’s fun, messy, crazy, wild and fleeting. What I do allows me to freeze time. Those little hands, little smiles – with sometimes crazy teeth… the candid image of your sweet baby looking off into the distance. It all goes too fast and I love the ability to create something that isn’t fleeting – a photograph to help you remember what it was like – where you were. It’s so wonderful. This family, well, one of my favorites, of course! We’ve known them for quite a long time but have had the pleasure of getting to know them better and spending a lot of great times together since our move to Grand Rapids. To know them is to love them! Here is your sneak peek – I think the outtakes are my favorites!
