I actually go by Alex...

I am a Natural Light Specialist

You could say my photography career has been short and sweet up to this point.  I wasn’t some prodigy child who’s been shooting photos since he was 6 months old, I haven’t won awards, I haven’t been recognized publicly.  What have I done then?  I can tell you one thing…I have found my passion.  My passion has been brewing for years, deep inside me.  I have always been the person in the family who takes the pictures and makes sure we get the perfect shot.  I was always the one taking photos on vacations and creating picture books to remember the good times.  I never really realized how much I enjoyed it though until I purchased my first real nice camera, the Sony A6000.  It literally started a few months before my son was born.  I knew I had to be able to document the most special and precious moments of my new family.  So I set out in search for the PERFECT camera!

I thought it would be easy, boy was I way off.  Once I landed on the Sony, I instantly fell in love.  I began taking pictures…thousands of pictures!  Not only of my son (well, I take that back, most of them were of him), but I started getting requests from friends asking if I could take engagement photos for them.  I Instantly got a rush out of it!  Honestly, it brought me back to my old pitching days for the baseball team in college.  As a photographer, I run the show and I help control the experience.  This is exactly what it feels like to be pitching for your team.  You’re the one in control and commanding the game.  I love this analogy!!  I even have butter flies in my stomach when I’m taking photos, but I stay very composed so you’ll never know.  Once I felt the butterflies, I knew this was exactly what I wanted to be doing.

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
