I'm so happy to have you here! I'm Alisa Duenas, a Family Portrait Photographer serving Chico and all of Northern California. I also LOVE to travel to capture your family, so don't be shy in asking.
I am mother to 4 boys, my greatest, most treasured calling in life. I'm a big fan of smiling, eating, hugging, flowy dresses, evening light, wind blown hair, and enjoying every second and opportunity this life has to offer.
I love the beauty of the outdoors and the glow of natural light just before a sunset. I believe that real moments of interaction bring out the most emotional and tender of memories. I aim to reach these moments as we progress through our session. I start with an arrangement where you are slightly posed. After we get a good traditional shot under our belt, it's play time. Especially if there are little ones involved. Sometimes I am inspired to pose or direct you in a certain way, but for the most part, I want to capture you in intimate, sweet moments with the ones you love.
Contact me below to book your session.

"I absolutely loved the way our wedding photos turned out! Alisa did everything in a way that captured the moments while seeming natural and beautiful. Alisa was kind and patient at prompting and directing our movements to create incredible images. She found the perfect moments to take our pictures, while still affording us the opportunity to still enjoy our day."
"Alisa was the photographer for my wedding on December 30, 2017 and she did a phenomenal job. Not only was Alisa's photography package more affordable than many other photographers, she was fun and easy to work with, and provided a fabulous finished product. I would highly recommend Alisa to others for engagement and wedding photography!"
The experience Alisa gave us was above and beyond our expectations. She was prompt, friendly, and very professional. She knew what needed to be done and got it done. She made us feel comfortable and took many amazing pictures. We had so much fun with her, and we came away extremely pleased with the whole experience.
"Alisa was so professional yet warm and friendly. We were so nervous but she helped us feel like naturals in front of the camera. Her style and her work is just amazing! Talented lady!"
Families are our greatest blessing, and pictures that show the love we have for them will be cherished for generations to come.
