Hi! I'm alicia...

I'm an old soul with a big heart for people. I grew up in a small New England town that didn't have a single stoplight, and I wouldn't change that for the world. Small towns are filled with character and warmth, something straight out of a good novel. 

I currently live in Chesapeake, Virginia with my gorgeous husband and our two pups, Roxy the Boxer and Teddie the Yorkie. We love adventure as a family and our house is most often filled with laughter. 

I started my photography journey back in 2016. I picked up a dated DSLR and fell in absolute love with creating works of art from still moments in time. While my equipment has changed a bit, my absolute love affair with capturing genuine emotion couldn't be more alive. 

My style is organic. I love to give direction so that my clients feel comfortable, but the only way I get to snap those lovely stills of natural emotion is to let you be yourself. While that looks different for each client, this usually means I will encourage you to interact with your love, I encourage your kids to explore and interact with you the way they would if you were with an old friend, and I certainly encourage my headshot clients to enjoy our time together as if we are laughing on a couch like old friends. 

I hope you feel comfortable here and I cannot wait to capture your life in an authentic way, leaving you with heirloom images that will last through generations. 

I look forward to seeing you, friend.
