All of the most amazing moments in life are made even more memorable through the power of a photograph, a memory frozen in time. I love how memories can be captured, collected, and recollected. And that is my goal as your photographer: to capture memories. You live your life, I log it.
I strive to tell your personal, unique story.
I like to take a quiet, unobtrusive approach.
I will laugh with your family, cuddle with your pets, and of course capture the beauty of your relationships and your lives for years and generations to come. I am also on a personal mission to help more families print and properly archive their photos.
Hi, I'm Alexa
Create Your Family Archive
When I was younger I remember hating being asked the question, "What is your hobby?" Hobby? "Watching TV, hanging out with friends," I would reluctantly answer. Meanwhile, I spent my free time in my parent's attic going through boxes and boxes of photos from decades even before I was born. Memories documented and loosely catalogued by sharpie on boxes, CVS time stamps, and the obvious - pre and post my birth timeline. At 12, I was obsessed with making sure that my family's archive was properly stored and taken care of. A hobby turned passion. Now I spend my days creating memories for your family archive.
So when do Bear and Lola come into play? Well, they're the reason I specialize in making sure your furry family members are included in those memories.
My background story
his is a photo of me with both of my puppers - Bear & Lola. While they aren't the whole reason I do what I do, they are a big part.
I bet if you close your eyes and think of 5 of the most important photos in your life, they are all photos you had printed and prominently displayed in your house growing up. This photo is one of those for me. My story starts here - the day they adopted and brought me home. This photo - printed as an 8x10 and set in an ornate gold frame served as the permanent reminder that I was loved from the very start.
My adorable Parents
While going through all those boxes something occurred to me. My mom had been so good at documenting, but she was always the one behind the camera. There are all these sweet moments with me and my dad, my dog, my grandparents. Really, only a handful of photos of my mother and I exist. Whatever did exist, I had to dig out of boxes because my hardworking mother never had the time to put anything in albums or frames. This is where I come in. Let me pick up the slack for you. Enjoy those moments - I will make sure they have a place in your life forever.
Who is behind the camera?
One Crucial error
Alexa is absolutely amazing! We joked with Alexa that we'd come out of a session feeling like it was chaos (with a baby and dog not cooperating) and then be blown away at the pictures as she was able to capture the absolute perfect moments that we will cherish forever. She's amazing at her job but also just so fun and great to work with, it's like seeing an old friend each time we are with her! Her beautiful work lines the walls of our home and we enjoy them each and every day.
Alexa did an amazing job shooting my maternity pictures. When you’re almost 9 months getting your maternity pictures taken the last thing you feel is cute and comfortable. Alexa made me laugh so much and got me out of my shell. She made me feel confident and beautiful. She also made sure my needs of going to the bathroom were met :) Alexa is seriously so sweet! I highly recommend Alexa!
I highly recommend Alexa! She took photos of me and my dog and was extremely patient with my high-energy pup. She worked diligently to capture his attention and was very accommodating regarding locations both inside and outside of my home. Alexa's vision and style are unparalleled and her level of service is what makes her the best in the business!
Alexa is the best around! She took family photos for us twice- once for a newborn/family shoot, and again a year later. She and my 3-year-old quickly bonded- which helped my toddler feel excited and ready to participate and have fun. Alexa is amazing, kind, funny, and so comforting! It is so nice to find someone that makes you feel comfortable when taking your family pictures. 100/10 recommend booking Alexa!
We had to spend an extra day in the hospital so at the time we saw her we had been home for less than 24 hours after spending 5 days in the hospital. I answered the door with wet hair and wearing a robe. Obviously I was overwhelmed. She however, was not. She calmed me down, said everything was ok and proceeded to hang out with my son while I got ready. I haven’t seen all the pictures yet, but I know they are going to be ones we will treasure forever. I know I will be going to Alexa to capture countless more moments in my families life.
