PHOTOGRAPHER & CREATIVE DIRECTOR for

I'm a brand photographer and creative director, helping you tell your story one visual at a time.

My personal mission is to create campaigns that empower others to care about the planet and themselves. I am currently based in NC + CA, but find myself traveling all over the world in order to foster a deeper connection to our planet.

After 2 years of working in the photography industry professionally, I have taught myself the power of digital marketing, working on campaigns with mission-based brands such as LifeProof, PrAna, Go Macro, and Boody Wear. 

I believe that my passion for our planet lies on the very foundation that people protect what they love. 

So, when I’m not shooting, you can find me spending time in the soil, surfing out front with friends, or teaching yoga.

"We have shot two of our seasonal collections with her and have been so impressed by her ability to bring our vision to life. She went above and beyond for the success of the shoots and coordinated all of the moving parts (hair and makeup, location, models, and aesthetic) which in turn allowed me to focus on the other aspects of collection launch and genuinely enjoy the shoots! She is inspiring to work with and I cannot recommend her enough!"

"Arisa has been a dream to work with. She takes the time to get to know you and your brand."

Arisa is a highly collaborative creative that can take direction and run with it extremely well. She is well versed in mission based brands and just, "gets it". Her photography skills and edits are top notch and always offers a breath of fresh air to my brand. I enjoy working with her because she is extremely detail oriented, timely and professional. She always takes my goals several steps further to go above and beyond with creative direction and advice that enhances my brand's imagery. 5-Stars!

All the folks who were shooting for my brand felt comfortable with her and so did I! I would certainly recommend her to anyone looking for someone who has a creative eye and who is also just a pleasure to work with!

"Arisa is wonderful to work with. She is prompt, kind, and creative."
