All About Alycat

"For my husband's birthday, I had Aly come to the house for a photography session with our sweet dog. To this day, he says it was the best gift he ever got, from anyone! Working with Alycat is a true delight. The photos were top notch and she has a true gift of seeing through the camera lens. She captured our dog in memorable pictures to treasure for a lifetime."

My name is Alyson Boyer Rode. I am the owner of Alycat Photo & Video Services, a multimedia company based in Durham, North Carolina.

I truly enjoy all aspects of photography and media, and use these tools in my life daily. No matter the adventure, a camera is always by my side.

I happily married and the proud parent of seven rescued “kids”: Reggie and Pollux, our dogs; Desmond & Penny, our mini rex bunnies; Shelby & Rockstar, our eastern box turtles; and Maddie, our African hedgehog.

I am passionate about volunteering and giving back to the community. Please visit Alycat's Making A Difference page to hear more about the these awesome organizations. If you are into traveling as much as I am, I invite you to visit Alycat’s Walkabout, my travel blog.


Every photo I take is dedicated to my beautiful friend, Andrea. She taught me to do everything in life, including photography, with unwavering love and passion. It was her friendship and support that has helped push me to where I am today.
