Hi. I'm Alisha Sommer, Freelance Writer & Photographer based out of Chicago. I have a gift for holding sacred space, for deep listening, and for seeing the ordinary in extraordinary ways. I use these gifts to uncover the true essence of you and your business and translate it into images and words. If you're an artist, a chef, a designer, a maker, a healer, a visionary on a mission—I want to help you tell a more beautiful story.

Currently, you'll also find collaborating with Angela Burke for Black Food & Beverage, hosting creative retreats in Sonoma, CA like the Fever Dreams Collective Retreat with Jennette Nielsen and the online writing workshop liberated lines with Robin Sandomirsky.
In the past I founded and edited a literary magazine, published personal essays, creative nonfiction, and poetry for a variety of online and print publications, and taught at Squam Art Workshops.
Really, I'm just a storyteller. I want to tell the truest of true stories in the most beautiful way possible. You can read SOMMERSALT, my lifestyle blog, here.
