Meet Alissa Cordoba

award-winning lifestyle photographer + documentary filmmaker 

Hi, I’m Alissa Cordoba and I love documenting life.

I believe it’s those moments - the ones when you’re able to be your truest self and let loose in your own element - that make a beautiful life. 

Since 2012, I have photographed over 1,000 fun-loving families in Austin and the surrounding areas. But whether I’m photographing families at home or teams in their offices, I love showing my clients the beauty in everyday life. When I’m not documenting the beauty in others’ lives, I’m embracing it in my own going on nature walks with my husband and two boys, playing in our backyard, or snuggling up on the couch together for a good movie.

When we work together...

When we work together, your family becomes my family. My goal is to take care of you. I mean it. I want you to love your images, and I want to watch your kiddos grow up from behind my camera. 

My sessions aren’t about capturing the "perfect" image. They’re about doing life - having fun, playing, dancing, laughing, snuggling - comfortably in front of the lens so that you can save those moments forever

RECOGNITION

A HIGHER STANDARD

I’m all about doing things right the first time and I take great pride in my work and service. Because whether you’re running a family or a business, I believe you have enough on your plate. 

That’s why I promise you no unexpected stressors and a stellar experience from beginning to end. Things should be easy and having to second-guess about next steps just makes it harder. 

My goal is for you to feel confident, heard, and equipped with everything you need from the very beginning of the process, so you can let loose and have fun! Check out the process to learn more.
