H E Y,  F R I E N D!


(Can I call you 'friend'? I have a feeling we're going to be friends.)


If you're looking for “picture perfect”, I’m not your girl.


If you want to have fun and be real and embrace your imperfections, now we're talking!


I like candids and will joke about r2d2 and jedi and I might ask you which Hogwarts house you belong to (Slytherin, here!) and which Doctor is your favorite (mine is the 10th all day every day but I do love the 11th, too). If you haven’t seen Stranger Things, or don’t care for Marvel or DC movies, that’s okay, we can still be friends!


I’m not scared of kids (I have six of my own!) I’m going to get loud and I’m not above making animals noises, barking like a dog or jumping around like a monkey to get your two year old to look towards the camera! Most of the images will be in focus; a lot of them won’t be.


We will create memories right there on the spot. You will put these images on your walls to cherish and one day they will be priceless. You’ll be glad you made it happen. It’s worth the effort. It’s worth the time. It’s worth the money.


You’ll have a positive experience and I hope you come back time after time and year after year. I’ll get to see as your kids grow and help you freeze time for generations to come.


Life isn’t perfect, and I don’t want to pretend like it is anything but a chaotic, beautiful, adventure full of both intentional and unintentional moments that ultimately create a messy masterpiece.


But it’s your masterpiece.


Let me help you display it.

She is quick to get the perfect shot and her pictures always turn out better than expected. She does great at finding the perfect locations and poses!

"Alicia is the best! She set the mood for our family to be comfortable while taking our family photos. She was able to pick a great location for our large group and color scheme. Alicia was very accommodating to our requests. We were needing our prints early and her turn around time of our [digital images] was so quick! Our family left our mini session so happy and we left feeling more love for each other, just from a photo shoot and the right photographer!" -Summer S.

"Alicia is so amazing to work with! She is incredibly talented! She's quick and knows how to bring out the best in those being photographed. I loved working with her! She also edits the pictures so well and gets them back to you so fast!"
