"Thank you so much for making my daughter feel so comfortable for her photo shoot on Saturday - we are thrilled with the results! I asked if she needs more shots done in a few years would she like to come back and her answer without hesitation was YES!!
From my conversation with Treia on Thursday to the shoot on Saturday with you Alise - you are both so lovely and it is easy to see why you come so highly rated, your professionalism, expertise and friendliness are second to none! Thank you!!

Your performance portfolio is your visual CV

We will guide you every step of the way! We start with a styling consult to ensure your 3 different photoshoots that are created in the one session, are organised and on theme. We will create a portfolio that tells a story and portrays a variety of emotions. Starting out with great imagery is essential for successfully promoting yourself.

We offer 3 hour photoshoots and VIP half or full day hire

We appreciate some clients are nervous when starting out or even updating their portfolios. We are here to help. From our private 3 hour photoshoots to more comprehensive day shoots, we will create a strong range of images for your media catalogue. We offer transparent pricing, a private quality experience and we will direct you through the range of photoshoots. Whether you are just starting your career or an experienced performer, the right images are a must to make your branding stand out.

"Thank you again Alise & Treia for such and incredibly relaxing, professional, fun shoot.


You both are such beautiful souls and I highly recommend anyone looking for a photographer who breathes her work like art and air."

"What a wonderful experience from the first enquiry to the photo day!

Everybody was professional, nice and welcoming. I was so nervous, but from the moment I met Treia and Alise, I felt at ease. They make you feel special and guide you through the whole process with calm and lots of smiles :) And, by the way, all photos were amazing. Didn’t know what to choose first.

I recommend Alise Black Photography to everyone who wants a great experience and best results. I can’t thank them enough.

The first edit of natural retouching is applied to the final Collection of shots before you see them on the day. Providing a same day viewing is really rare in the industry and just another reason why people love working us.

Natural skin softening and removal of body marks is complimentary. We offer a retouching menu for personalised requests. The images will be media ready.

The edited Collection is presented for you to view and order on the same day. Photography is a personalised product and you won't know what you'll want to order, until you see the results of what we create for you. With us, you have complete freedom and control to order to your comfort. Contact us to receive our performance pricing.

Attention to detail, great styling and direction, makes being professionally photographed easy.. and helps you take the next step in a dynamic career.
