let's tell a more beautiful story..png

You have the passion and the vision but haven't found the just right way to communicate the story of you and your business. You want more than just copy to fill the space. You want soul-crafted and heart-full language that captures the uniqueness of you and your work.

I blend my love of words and a talent for creating visually stunning images to create authentic and engaging stories.

Together we'll develop authentic and original content that will drive sales, build deeper connections with your customers, and create value for both your brand and audience.



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.
