It’s raw and it’s precious. It’s early mornings, and late nights. It’s messy and profound. It’s giving your whole heart without expecting anything in return. Motherhood is healing wounds, soothing hard feelings. It’s filling your cup to the brim and letting it overflow. We as mothers, need photographs. It’s a necessary reminder of the magically mundane that we live day in and day out. This is why I adore photographing your loves and lives. Because these moments pass like a leaf on the wind, and photographs are the only reminders we have of these precious moments that shape so much of our lives.
I’m Alex, wife to a farmer, and homeschooling, home birthing, home making, and homesteading mama to our four little ones. We currently reside on a little farm in California where I am also a photographer and writer preserving all the facets of motherhood for myself and others. I believe in intentionally lived days that are firmly rooted in Jesus, with a healthy dose of empathy and wonder woven within the magically mundane.
If you want to forever be reminded of those heartfelt, authentic, organic moments between you and the ones you love the most… those are the moments I want to preserve for you, and remind you to hold dear through the way you spend your days. The subtle nuances and big in your face moments of love and life, that you’ll want to look back on and feel. Because happiness, joy, contentment, it all comes from those we share our lives with, those we spend the day to day loving and forgiving, teaching and learning; they are our home. That safe place we come to rest our weary hearts and feed our curious minds. Home is more than just brick and mortar. And home doesn’t have to look a certain way to be beautiful…just like families.
I’ve been honored to have my work published in Style Me Pretty, Fount Collective, Belle Lumiere Magazine, Cottage Hill Magazine, Wild + Free, and Glitter Guide, among others. I also love offering support, encouragement, and education to those wanting to learn and improve upon their love of photography and human connection through 1:1 mentorships, in person workshops, and virtual mastermind groups. I’ve held several in-person workshops all around the country since 2018, and plan to continue to do so in the future, as well as various other teaching opportunities.
Day to day you can find me at our little country house in an almond orchard with my handsome farmer and our four little ones. Most days I’m writing, homeschooling our babies, and cooking up meals using the beautiful offerings from our garden and farm. I am the undeserving recipient of God’s endless grace, and I watch an inordinate amount of The Great British Baking Show.
