Hello, I'm Alysse Duncan!

Welcome! I am so happy that you're here!

People would describe me as having contagious energy; a goofy personality that rubs off on others; the life of the party; always laughing; and a unique ability to make people feel happy and at ease. I am very passionate about what I do, and there is nothing that I love more than bringing out joy, love, and happiness in others.

My husband and I live in beautiful Sonoma County, and have three amazing children. And of course I can't forget our other babies...two chihuahuas, a cat named Cupcake, and 11 fish...yes 11 fish 😂. They are my tribe, and are my absolute world. (That's my little family above ❤️). We do everything together, living life to the fullest, and enjoying every moment (even the days my kids drive me bonkers 🤪). They are so worth it though!

When I'm not doing photography, you can find me spending quality time with my family, going on mom dates and play dates, and chasing my kids around. We are all very passionate about music. You can find us having daily dance parties, singing karaoke (If only my voice sounded as good as it sounds in my head lol), watching sports (well lets be honest, that would mostly be my hubby...he's a huge Dodgers and Raiders fan, but please don't let that scare you away 😝), and going on adventures. We enjoy anything outdoors, hiking, swimming, going to the beach, spending time with friends, or just hanging out at home watching Netflix, and eating fro yo. Fun fact: I am obsessed with muffins, and would spend every day at the beach if I could!

I truly love this crazy, chaotic, and beautiful life that I live. It's not always easy,, but we are definitely not short on love. My family and children are truly the most precious gift this life has given me, and are in fact, my biggest inspiration. They are what enables me to seek and capture authentic moments for the families that I get to meet today, and are the reason my journey into photography began. This is my story...

HOW MY JOURNEY BEGAN...


While I have always had a love for capturing the moment, and been the crazy girl obsessed with taking pictures, trying to capture every single memory, my photography journey really began in 2016. That was when my husband bought me my first "real" camera. Moments are so fleeting, that I wanted to document every little detail and milestone in our children's lives, and the love we all shared. Not only that, but I have been so lucky to be surrounded by such endless beauty here in Northern California.

It didn't take me long to fall in love with photography. I was determined to learn as much as possible, so I dove head first into online workshops, webinars, and you tube videos. I started posting pictures I had taken of my kids on facebook, and before I knew it, I was taking photos for friends and family. Soon after, I started getting inquiries asking if I was taking bookings. I was shocked at the time, because I never intended on doing this full time. It was just something that I loved to do. However, it got me thinking how incredible it would be, to not only create a memorable experience for other people, but to tell their unique love story, by creating meaningful keepsakes for them to forever cherish. I mean, how awesome of a "job" would that be?! So...with the encouragement and support of my family and friends, I decided to take the plunge and turn my passion into a career. From there, my journey took off!


"I want to capture your passionate love story. For your children to fall back into the very moment you held their hand and smiled down at them so proudly. The way your partner embraced you and held you so perfectly. You were loved beyond measure."
