Rose Colored Photography is here! After many months of logo design, website building, and a lot of self doubt overcome by watching Beyonce Youtube videos; it's finally here! But before I bust out the champagne and eat a fancy pizza, I think a 'thank you' is in order! 


In 2008 I decided to start @photography. Up until that year, it was a hobby where I would have kooky visions and make my friends model for me (that still happens sometimes). It's a really scary thing to decide to run a business alone based on a passion. Terrifying actually. I took on a role where I am trusted to document precious moments

that pass by in seconds or take a headshot that is a tool to help that person

succeed in their career or handle a newborn baby's body! BAHHH! I know I'm not a doctor or saving the world but c'mon, it's a stressful position!  I had no idea what I was in for and that first year involved a lot of learning but it was the year that got me hooked. Even with knowing I was new to the game, the surprising part was that the people who hired me believed in me, sometimes way more than I did myself. So, thank you to those first year clients and those repeat clients and all of them in between! If you have hired me in the last 7 years, THANK YOU! You have made my career what it is and you have allowed me to have a deeper love for my work that I didn't know existed!


So, why the change? Mainly because it's not just me anymore! If you know me then you know David and if you know us then you know we're a team. When I started out, David was my support and business advisor. Then he

became my come-along-on-shoots-and-hold-props guy and then once we booked our first wedding (SHOUT OUT TO THE GIESKE'S and VAL ORTIZ for getting me the gig!) he ended up with a camera in his hand shooting like a natural. He's been there from the start ​and his role is equally as important as mine. The other reason is because I will no longer be Alyssa Tembrina by next year, I will officially be a Kearney!

Now, why Rose Colored Photography? The expression "seeing your past through rose colored glasses" means to always view your past in a positive light (the phrase is sometimes used in a negative connotation in a sense that you always see things positively when they were actually kind of crappy but I'm Rose Coloring the phrase!) It jumped out at me when I heard it for the first time. I strive to have my photographs bring people back to a milestone in their life and make them feel as happy as they did that day. I knew it was a perfect fit.


So there it is! Our past and present rolled all into one blog post! Thank you again @photography supporters, you're cool cats!
