Hello! I'm Alexandra (aka Alex) and welcome to my website. I am a lifestyle photographer based in San Diego, CA and my passion is stemmed from families, couples, maternity, newborn, and children. I specialize in natural light photography, meaning I use the beauty of nature’s natural light for my indoor and outdoor photography. Therefore I love taking photos at sunrise, sunset or when your home is most filled with light. My passion is about capturing authentic, artistic and genuine moments. Your session will be very natural, organic and candid. It's not always a posed family or couple smiling directly at the camera but rather those in between moments (the way a father holds his baby for the first time, the way the sunlight catches the dimples of a child's smile, or the love and connection in a couple's eyes). A few years ago I became a mother for the first time to my daughter Charlotte , and as such my life changed completely. Since then, my heart and artistic eye melts down and is drawn into the life of little ones and the world that surrounds them. I am passionate about capturing life moments for clients to cherish a lifetime.
Alex is a natural! She’s so professional but manages to be easy going and immensely patient with the kiddos all at the same time. She makes the shoot fun and effortless. She has super quick turn around which is also amazing considering how beautiful the pictures end up coming out. I high recommend her for your photography needs!
I highly recommend using Alex for a family photo shoot! I’m so uncomfortable taking pics but she is amazing at guiding you and keeping the flow. Huge thumbs up for her direction...I didn’t even have time to think about if I looked weird or not! My daughter got in the car and was like “mom, when is she taking our pictures next? I really love her!” Super fan over here😂
Our pictures turned out absolutely gorgeous!! They were better than I could have ever even imagined. She did SUCH an amazing job capturing every detail. And she made my fiancé and I feel so comfortable in front of the camera (which can be hard to do, because we are so awkward in pics most times lol). The biggest thing I appreciated was the fact that she posed us and kept us relaxed the whole time. She is a very talented photographer and I would recommend her over and over again.
Absolutely loved our family session with Alex. She made us feel so at ease and was wonderful with my two boys. She captured some beautiful memories for us. She even held the baby while taking our pictures.Truly amazing!
I knew I wanted a little steamier couple photos but I was afraid of how awkward I’d be during the shoot. I was worried I had a vision of what I wanted but I wouldn’t come out like that because I’m not a model. To my surprise, Alex made us feel so comfortable and captured such great moments, we ended up feeling like models🤪 hahaha she was able to take pictures of us in action without us trying to “model.” I’m so happy with the end product. To be honest I was super happy with the sneak peaks I didn’t know how she could top those in the gallery...but she did. I definitely recommend her for family photos, couple pictures. If you invest some tome and money into some fabulous family pictures, you won’t be disappointed with with what you get. Guaranteed!!
Alex is a wonderful photographer! She works amazingly well with little kids (and we have two rambunctious boys Yikes!) She is patient and very accommodating. Taking breaks with the kids based on there energy level. She uses her time during the photo shoot really well. When my boys where done with group pictures she did a few with my husband and I and then circled back to get some impromptu pictures of the boys! What I love most is her artistic eye. My pictures where stunning. The finished products were beautiful and her turn around time was extremely fast. I love her!
Thank you Alex for a wonderful family photo session. I have done this a few times and you were by far the best experience. When you have a hubby who is not a fan of taking pictures and a 2 year old son, who lets face it, only does what he wants, it can be challenging. You were able to get some amazingly, beautiful memories for us. I love your relaxed and flexible approach and ability to work with kids. This made the experience less stressful and in the end it turned out to be a wonderful, fun time with my family. Thank you again!!!
Alex was awesome!! We used her for our family photos, I have 2 little ones and she made us all feel extremely comfortable and gave great direction. She even created a playlist for my kids because I told her how much they love to dance and sing!!
Alex has such an amazing eye for lighting and setting. She made my husband and I feel very comfortable - and I hate my picture taken! We had a hard time picking our favorites and can’t wait to do another shoot with her again! Perfect for couples and families!
Alex is the sweetest, most easy going photographer out there! Our pictures have been amazing every time (we’ve used her twice!), and I am always shocked at how quick she sends us our pictures. I also HAVE to mention at how great she is with kids!! She makes it fun and you will see it in the photos. We love her!
We had such an amazing experience with Alex. She is so easy to work with. We have 5 year old twin boys, and, as with all littles, it takes extra time, patience, and understanding. Alex was so comfortable around our kiddos. She had a special way of connecting with them and was able to capture their true selves on film. My husband and I loved all the images! Great light, wonderful composition. It was truly a pleasure to work with Alex and will absolutely work with her again!
My pictures are so beautiful she completely captured every special part of my day. She is so friendly it makes is so easy to be natural rather then feel posed. I am happy that I will be able to have these memories for ever!!! Thank you 😊
Alex did my maternity shoot and I couldn't be more impressed with how everything turned out. She made my husband and I feel so comfortable in front of the camera and captured the most special moments for us. She was so prompt on delivering our edited photos to us which we will cherish forever. I am looking forward to our lifestyle shoot with her too, when our baby boy arrives.
We had a family/newborn photography session with Alex. She was so patient with our kids, ages 6, 4 and newborn. She made everything go so smooth and captured some beautiful moments. We love that it was a mix of candid moments along with some creative posed photos. Somehow she even got our kids (and my husband) to smile and enjoy the session. That in itself was a small miracle! Give Alex a shot, you won’t regret it!
