Fresh Look for Alyssa Schroeder Photography

Here it is! I can hardly believe it. I am so thrilled to share with you a completely fresh new look. This has been a long process. I know so many of you heard me say I’m re-branding and working on a new website for probably the past two years. If you know me, I’m a perfectionist and have a tendency to over-analyze every last detail, so major props to my designers for putting up with me ;)


The talented Ryan at Second Street Creative nailed my new logo. I wanted something rustic and vintage inspired while appearing approachable. I’m delighted to have a true custom blogsite now with a separate homepage, portfolio and blog that reflect my brand. The creative mastermind behind the new site is designer (and photographer), Krista A. Jones. I’m just in love with all the nature inspired elements she designed and how she overall, made the the site a cozier place.  Thank you both so much for your incredible work! I also have to give a shout out to William at Flaunt Your Site for helping with a few technicalities and all the friends and family I tormented with helping me make decisions (you know who you are).


To celebrate, I’m doing a little giveaway! While spring may be around the corner, we still have lots of time to sip away hot drinks. For my fellow tea lovers, a $50 DavidsTea gift card, or if coffee is your thing, a $50 Starbucks gift card. Winner takes their pick.

Absolutely beautiful Alyssa! You’ve inspired me to get working on my website again. It’s been down for 6 months and I too am a perfectionist, so it feels like I’m getting nowhere!
