Did you relocate to a small community in the last ten years?


Do you run a sustainable small business or farm in the rural reaches? 


Or, do you have an urban farmstead? 


We would love to hear your story!

Urban Exodus is a labor of love produced by Alissa Hessler of Hessler Creative. I am based in Midcoast Maine and my husband and I welcomed our daughter into the world in 2017. We do not travel for feature shoots as much as we did early in the project.


If you would like to share your own story on the site please send us an email.


If you would like to hire us to photograph your farm, business or family please reach out on our business websites (business and farm photography) and (family & portrait photography). 

Thank you for your continued support - I feel lucky to have a wonderful audience of loyal readers!
