I'm Alicia. Mother to the stunning Sadie, sweet Jax, mischievous McKay, and baby Andi. Wife of patient, perfect Ben.
I'm a native of Seminole, Florida, but I currently live in beautiful Tampa, Florida. I love Florida's sunny skies, warm evenings, and wacky residents. I spend my days jumping on the trampoline and making PB&J sandwiches for my four crazy children. And I always have a camera handy to capture life's moments!
In my past life (pre-children), I earned a B.S. degree in Exercise Science at Brigham Young University. Shortly thereafter I began teaching middle school science in Tampa and earned a Master's degree in Teaching from the University of Tampa. I "retired" from teaching when my oldest child was born, 9 years ago.
Eight years ago, Sarah, my photographer sister-in-law, convinced me to explore photography. I will forever be grateful!!! It was love at first click! Since then I've read, researched, and been mentored by some fabulous photographers.
While I initially started in the wedding photography industry, I stepped back from it and pursued family and portrait photography while I was actively growing my own family. Now that our family is complete I'm thrilled to be photographing weddings, elopements, and couples again!
I love pictures that evoke emotion and capture memories - playful interchanges, laughter, and connections. My goal is to get a great mixture of posed and playful pictures with a casual, comfortable feel. I believe every picture you receive should be frame-worthy. Each photograph is edited and enhanced before you receive the finished product. And I believe every client should have ownership of all their edited pictures, so I include that in every package.
Life is too wonderful not to document!
