I have some news: I'M EXPECTING! My due date is October 18, 2013; all shoots are coming to a standstill until further notice!
Check out my new facebook fan page and like it for updates on my modeling:
Hey MM I’m Alyssa- an eighteen year old model from Cary, NC. I’ve been modeling since October 2010 and have loved it ever since. My career began when I was a child and won a modeling contest in my hometown, but my family couldn’t afford to have me represented and I lost my chance. So now, 10 years later, I’m trying again. This time, I’ve had much success. With no experience in the industry, I’ve gotten myself far and I’m glad. Feel free to shoot me a message here, on facebook, or through email to contact me about shooting.
I’ve generally been doing freelance work with a few paid shoots here and there, however due to recent events, I'm afraid I'm going to have to start charging per shoot (To cover travel expenses, hair, makeup, and time) I love being in front of the camera and bring enthusiasm and energy to a shoot. I look forward to shooting with photographers with similar personalities. I’m open to try any concept that a photographer wants to try within reason.
I require that I be allowed to have an escort over the age of eighteen with me at all shoots for my own safety and comfort. I have transportation to all shoots through my escort who has volunteered for this responsibility. However, if anything comes up, I will give you notice within 24-48 hours of the shoot.
I do have two nose rings, two belly button rings, and thirteen ear piercings. The only ones that can't come out are the nose rings though. I also have a small tattoo on my hip, a small symbol on my wrist, a colorful anchor on my thigh, and a dreamcatcher on my ribs.
I live in the Raleigh-Durham area but I trave anywhere from Wilmington, NC to Los Angeles, CA. Check back for more travel dates.

I look forward to working with her again!" (Jim -J Clark Photography (1679939)

-"Alyssa was a real pleasure to work with. Her uncanny ability to adapt to my direction as well as her instinct for improvisation made our shooting experience go off without a hitch. And not to mention... those eyes" (M Eric Honeycutt; 506439)
-"Working with Alyssa was such a pleasure! It was so refreshing to work with a model who knew exactly how she wanted her photos to look while still giving me the freedom to exercise my own creativity. Our collaboration created amazing images and I'm excited to see where she takes her modeling career! If you haven't worked with her yet, you better jump on the opportunity before she hits the big time ;)" (Natasha Leigh Photography; 1966083)
-"Alyssa is a such a natural in front of the camera, working with her is just effortless. She *always* has the perfect pose, allowing you to concentrate on getting the other elements in the frame perfect. The hard part is in sorting out all the great images she has given you to pick the very best ones. A great problem to have. " (Rodney Boles Photography; 1911349)
-"Alyssa is an absolute pleasure to work with! She is a natural in front of the camera - knowing how to execute great expressions and poses, making it extremely easy for a photographer to "snap away" and get a fantastic shot every single time. This girl knows how to work it! I look forward to collaborating with her again. Expect to see her on billboards and in magazines in the near future." (MEB Photography; 2349536)
-"Alyssa is a wonderful model. She is great at taking directions and one of the most relaxed model iv ever worked with. Modelling is second nature to Alyssa and what I find great about her is that she has confidence in her work which I think is hard to find in young models. Shes kind and shes very pleasant to work with. I hope to work with her again soon!" (Abigail Morris)
-"Alyssa is not only a fantastic model but also a great person and one of my best friends. She really knows what she's doing in front of a camera and I know she's going to go very far in the modeling industry. She's also easy to work with because she has a professional but fun attitude while working and is a natural at posing and connecting with the photographer. I've had lots of fun working with her and definitely hope to do so much more in the future. It would be a huge privilege for any photographer to shoot with this extremely talented model.
