When my daughter Desiree was growing up, she had a dear friend named Katherine. They have been friends since Jr. High. Well Alyssa is Katherine's niece and she is a carbon copy of her Aunt Katherine!! They look alike, they talk alike and they act alike!!

Alyssa comes from a large, loving family. You can see the way her family looks at her that they are so proud of Alyssa and just adore her.

The day of the photo session, Alyssa wanted to start downtown. Well, it didn't occur to us that it was a Homecoming night and there were people everywhere taking photos in their homecoming outfits. I mean - that was fun to watch and all
