I'M ALEXIA!

IT’S NICE TO MEET YOU

photographer & owner

A little about me... I'm married to my college sweetheart, Nate, who is the most amazing, hard working, supportive, and handsome husband. I'm a mama to my sweet, rambunctious little boy, Milo, and our beautiful, happy baby girl, Maia, who are both the light of our lives. I am the biggest nerd ever. No really - in my other life, I am a scientist that works as a military health consultant. I am 100% Greek. I love to travel! I am obsessed with neutrals (grey and white EVERYTHING) and could live off of sweets. 


You can look at a picture for a week and never think of it again. You can also look at a picture for a second and think of it all your life.

BROWSE MY FAVORITE THINGS

My Family

Nothing is more important than family. The last few years have taught me that time is precious and making memories with those I love is at the top of my priority list.

being with the ones i love is everything to me

BROWSE MY FAVORITE THINGS

Sweet Treats

I can't deny it... I could live off of dessert alone! I wish I didn't have a sweet tooth, but at least I try to balance my love of treats with a healthier diet the rest of the time (sort of).

CAKES, MACAROONS, CHOCOLATE, ETC.

traveling

Traveling may have been put on a temporary hold since the arrival of our littles, but my husband and I LOVE to explore new places, especially with our cameras in hand.

The Holidays

I just love holiday decorating, giving gifts to my loved ones, and spending Christmas day cozy at home baking cookies in our pajamas and making memories with our babies!

holiday tunes, Christmas trees, family time

Mediterranean Summers

My favorite place in the world is Greece, hands down. My family lives there and, while we don't get to see them often, some of my favorite memories are of spending summers in Greece.

Neutral Palettes

I live for soft, neutral colors. My whole house is neutral, which makes for the perfect studio setting for sessions. There is something so beautiful about simple backdrops so that YOU are the focus.

OUR STORY:

THE REASON WHY

i do what i do

A few years ago, my husband was diagnosed with cancer and everything in our lives changed. Since then, we have been through so much recovering from that experience, going through infertility and IVF, and learning to live with a new normal. The things that are important to me have changed. How I see time is different. This new outlook on life has had such a profound impact on my approach to photography. I see such value in photos and aim to capture genuine, authentic emotions from both everyday moments and important milestones. They are truly memories that span a lifetime and are cherished for generations. I am so excited to create these important momentos for my clients and to form friendships with the incredible people I meet in the process.
