I absolutely cherish photographing individuals’ unique personalities & businesses with portraits. It’s really simple: I love what I do. My passion has always been photography, and as a Type 7 on the Enneagram, I’m positive, and enthusiastic, and creative as heck! Just think of me as your biggest cheerleader, with a camera. You deserve to have emotion-filled photos that make you smile, cry tears of “holy crap that’s me!”, and remember this incredible time in your life. Get to know me even better & let’s be create magic!




join the pack.

I can promise my clients two things: We will get you a ton of stunning, hilarious, and touching photos, and we’ll have a dang good time together getting them.


Hey, I’m Alex!

My job description portrait photographer, but I wholeheartedly believe this is more than a job. It’s my calling. I graduated from The Art Institute for Photography in 2015. My passion for photography started as many passions do… with a boy. True story: My best friend in high school had her heart broken by a guy. So, obviously, I decided to dress her up, take adorable photos of her with my family’s nice camera, and post them all over MySpace. You know, as you do in high school to get even and pump up your friend’s self-esteem. I’m sure the guy regretted his decision, and as for me? I tapped into a gift and passion I’ve been pursuing ever since.

I live in a small town called West, Texas, about 20 minutes outside Waco. If I’m completely honest, though, I really live in Target… and live off of Tex-Mex. Chips and Queso are life, wouldn’t you agree? I also thrive on long lunches with friends, way too much matcha green tea, and speaking fluently in sarcasm. My days are spent editing photos on my couch and watching re-runs of “The Office”.
