About Alex—

grabbing moments + fueled on coffee

SELF-proclaimed pun master

Hey Babes! First thing people say when they see me, is "Whoa, you ARE short!", but my lovin'-on-humans personality spans a lot farther than my 5' self. I never pass up an opportunity to eat McDonalds, The Office is the best TV to ever exist and my favorite holiday is Christmas.
Most days you can find me hanging out with my two daughters at home or at Target with Starbucks in hand, or watching The Office with Daniel.

I'm mostly known for my addiction to avocados, making "awful" (I think they're pretty great) puns, and being a mom to everyone around me. If you need snacks, diapers, bandaids, floss, I've probably got it in my purse (a true Enneagram 2, right here). 

I love serving couples by giving them time to focus on each other in a world that wears "busy" like a badge of honor. I photograph couples who are up for a little adventure and aren't ashamed to make out at sunset. I love to show them how to be themselves, which means you'll never find me posing you or telling you to tilt your head just a little to the left. I work by getting to know my couples + prompting them instead of posing. 

When I'm not busy taking or editing photos you can catch me going on runs, surfing Pinterest, taking my girls to the park, baking/cooking (especially around Christmas!), listening to the Crime Junkie podcast + singing way too loudly in my mom van.

"Don't ever, for any reason, do anything, to anyone, for any reason, ever, no matter what, no matter where, or who, or who you are with, or where you are going, or where you've been, ever, for any reason whatsoever."
- Michael Scott
