I’m Alex, your DFW birth & lifestyle photographer, and family photojournalist.

I fell in love with photography when I was 8 years old at Girl Scout Camp.  My parents gave me a simple 110 mm point and shoot and a few boxes of film and I was hooked!  Fast forward a “few” years and a couple of cameras later, and my passion for taking photographs is still just as strong.

During college, I was fortunate to work as a journalist for a small town newspaper in Texas.  As reporters we both wrote and photographed our stories, allowing me to learn and hone my skills by photographing something important to someone every day.  After graduating, my career turned to higher education marketing where I continued to utilize my love of photography to tell stories – stories of success.   In 2015, a very important and successful woman in the Fort Worth community inspired me to do what I love.  So here we are.

To date, natural, unposed, real life photography with my added creative style is my favorite way to shoot to tell the important life stories that matter to you.
