Today I have the pleasure of having Anna Way Roberts as my guest, she is a photographer, wonderful friend, and we both share the diagnosis of ADHD. Anna is also the lead associate and managing director for Alisha Crossley Photography.

Vanessa and I will really dig deep into what we have had to do to push past the pain and suffering we endured as children.

Meet Alisha


After an initial focus on literary arts, Alisha became enraptured by an author’s ability to spin words to life on paper, inspiring her to obtain a BA in English/ Art and MA in Secondary Education. With her own narrative still in development, Alisha focused on the art of storytelling - using both pen and paper and a camera and darkroom. Over the last decade, Alisha has used these mediums to capture stories most notably as an award winning photographer. 

Curator of beautiful stories, vintage clothing and french antiques. She and her husband Patrick have been married for seventeen years. They share three little ones, two cats and one dog in Mountain Brook, AL. 

“Here’s the thing: The book that will most change your life is the one you write.”

Alisha is currently writing her first book - a memoir reconciling the brokenness and beauty of a childhood dictated by intergenerational trauma.
