Alisa is committed to helping children and leaving the world a better place for her presence in it. Her bright smile and cheerful demeanor make her a joy to be around.
Working together with visionaries from Twin Cities organizations and Minnesota governmental entities, Alisa Matheson works together to think systematically on how processes and procedures can be improved and allow teams to focus on the true issues and not get stuck in the menucha, thus impacting the lives of foster and adopted children and youth, now and in the future.
Alisa has traversed the foster and adoptive world system as a single mom, and as an adoption professional.
Along the way, she became an enthusiastic pro-reunification foster parent, an advocate for youth in the foster care system to have less moves and access to their full story, and an advocate for better trained and prepared adults and workers. View some wisdom gathered along the way.
Using natural light and a laid back style, Alisa engages clients of all ages and helps them have a fun and enjoyable session. With 10 years of experience doing photography sessions in Minneapolis, St Paul, Coon Rapids and Forest Lake, she knows that when everyone has fun together, the joy jumps out of the final photos and becomes a treasured memory.
