Hello! My name is Alyisa Owen and the tall handsome man next to me (pictured above) is my husband, Billy Owen. We are the faces behind Third Street Studio, formerly known as Aly Marie Photography. My enthusiasm for photography started right after my son Caleb–the other handsome young man pictured above– was born in 2009. I picked up my first DSLR camera, chose Aly Marie Photography as my business name and it has been an amazing ten years. I have established many incredible client relationships and couldn’t be happier with my growth as a photographer!
In the Fall of 2019, we rebranded into Third Street Studio! Not to worry, I am still the same Aly Marie Photography… just a new face and brand. Our vision and goal as Third Street Studio is to be able to grow & expand as a business so that we can better serve our clients in every stage of life. Billy Owen’s speciality is graphic design & video and he has helped Third Street Studio with our rebranding, marketing & design related projects. We are very fortunate to take this journey together and be a part of the Downtown Lee’s Summit community.
My style is whimsical, simple and casual. My passion is lifestyle family photography and my niche is with maternity & newborns. I also offer first year baby plans & packages, child portraits, senior sessions, themed mini sessions, large group family sessions, pet photography and professional business headshots.
Finding a special niche with newborn photography is what really made me fall in love with my career. After I photographed my first bundle of joy in 2010, I began diving deeper into this newfound love. I am experienced and comfortable with handling newborns and voted top 10 for best maternity & newborn photographers in Kansas City. It has been such an honor meeting so many families and having the opportunity to create memories that last a lifetime.
In 2015, I began newborn photography workshops with another newborn photographer friend. Together we have traveled to many different cities across the U.S., teaching other aspiring newborn photographers. If you have questions about mentoring or if you’d like to learn more, please ask me!
This has been a monumental time in my life and I have the best encouragement from family and friends. I have not only found a career that I am sincere about, but I am continuing to meet amazing families and develop relationships with people along the way. Most importantly, I feel very blessed to have the opportunity to create memories for more families to come!
We look forward to working with you!
Alyisa & Billy Owen
