Hi, I'm Alex!
I just want you to take a breath right now and know that this is a safe place. We aren't shooting for perfection. We are wanting to capture whatever season of life you're in, the way you're in it. As authentically as it gets. Life can be challenging and hard—it's also oh so rewarding. My life's anthem is to Brave The Journey, so let's come together and make some magic and embrace the beauty of it all.
I am an ear to listen, and a smiling face to encourage you and tell your story with my gift in photography—and with that gift, I strive to find ways to best serve you.
So let us grab a coffee (I love a good chai tea or matcha) and chat about life or shoot me an email and figure out how to embrace the moment...
Chasing the Light
Our sessions won't be what you are probably use to. We won't be worried about cookie cutter poses or feeling too stiff. We will be using fun prompts and corny jokes to get genuine reactions and interactions with each other. Not stressing and just being yourselves. I get way too excited about creamy light and following it wherever it takes us to get those dreamy images you want to hang in your home or post to your feed.
Just laugh, I'll get the shot!
More often than not I have to tell my clients not to worry about me. I get in crazy positions, balance on rocks or whatever is near and usually have to go barefoot to get muddy or waist deep in the lake too! If I slip or stumble I just joke that you need to laugh because I'll get the shot! (Also double check my gear/baby is fine too! Ha!)
A few quick things about me, I love being spontaneous and winging life (my ability to go with the flow drives my husband crazy! He's a planner and hates getting lost. Those people always marry each other?!). But I also try to be intentional in things that matter. I love my Jesus, being a wife and momma to our two boys and four angels and getting back to the basics of homesteading. Simplicity is so beautifully underrated.
SEEKING THE EVERYDAY MAGIC THAT MAKES YOUR HEART BEAT HARDEST
We're going to do things a bit differently. This is about you; this is about telling your story.
THE GUT-BUSTING LAUGHS
THE MOMENTS WHERE TIME STANDS STILL
LET'S CAPTURE THE REAL STUFF
I've never been interested in the stiff and stale posing approach that we're all too familiar with. My philosophy is about documenting the real, raw, and authentic love — like when he turns around and sees you for the first time; when your loved ones get choked up giving their reception speech; when your new spouse grabs your hand under the table when no-one's looking, or sweet stolen kisses. My photos are meant to freeze time for just a moment, allowing you to truly remember what it felt like to be there.
I'm not here to create pixel perfect images, I'm here to capture the authentic moments where you feel most loved. Let's tell your story, together.
Working with Alex was such a pleasure to say the least. Upon arriving to our shoot we were greeted with a sweet, bubbly smile. The whole shoot was filled with laughter, friendly conversation, and capturing moments that I will treasure for forever. Within the hour of our shoot, I felt like I had made a friend and was happy to have had Alex shoot such an important milestone in Jordan and I’s lives. The pictures are everything I could have asked for and more! It truly was a 6 out of 5 star experience.
