behind the lens
Hey there! I'm Alicia, your photographer.
If you're on this page, chances are you're considering booking a session but are looking to know a bit more about me. So let's dive in!
I'm a small town girl who loves the country life and all things rustic. I'll take a sky full of stars over the city lights any day, and wide open fields are my happy place.
I adore art, indie music, exploring forgotten buildings, and being surrounded by nature. Thunderstorms are my favourite thing about the summer, and if it's a cloudy day, you will probably find me out shooting the skies.
When it comes to my photography, I tend to see the beauty in unexpected things, like a broken down century barn, or the texture of a weathered wall. And it is those same things that I incorporate into a shoot, as well as having a few super cool abandoned homes & properties in my location arsenal. I also like to utilize the gorgeous natural surroundings we have in the area, whether it is a field, a forest, the beach or rolling hills.
If you're someone who appreciates things that are a little left of center, off the beaten path, and outside the box.... then I think we can create something amazing together.
My clients are most often people who are looking for something a bit different from the typical "sit and smile" kind of portraits. I specialize in lifestyle sessions, where the goal is to have fun and create some great stories, while also getting some amazing photos. We'll do some semi posed shots, and then just see how we want the session to evolve. It's a painless process, lighthearted and laid back, and the result is a relaxed client (and photographer!) with images that you can enjoy for years to come as you relive the memories of that day.
I am all in when it comes to my clients. This is what I was made to do, it's what I love. That means: I am the person who will laugh with your family, joke around with your kids, and probably cry during your wedding - because I see so much happiness and emotion doing my job, that its impossible not to get swept up in the moments. But it also means that I care about you, I'll do everything I can to make your day brighter, and it is not uncommon for returning customers to become good friends of mine afterwards.
