Hey there! I’m Alex, and my journey into photography started in 2012 and has been an insanely amazing one. Once a globe-trotting wedding photographer, I captured love stories in Iowa and beyond for over six years. In 2016, my path took an unexpected, yet incredible turn – I retired from wedding photography and instead, I embraced the world of product photography and digital creation, helping businesses shine, and continued capturing life’s intimate moments as a portrait photographer.

Photography for me is not just about getting the most picturesque scene with the most perfect light; it’s about the laughter, tears, and genuine smiles. It’s about creating something timeless. Whether it's the intricate details of a product or the raw emotions of a family portrait, my camera and I are all about telling your story with warmth and authenticity.

Life is a beautiful, messy, and wonderful journey. Let’s capture it together.

"Working with Alex for my brand session was a dream. Not only did she help me plan and style, but made the entire experience fun! It just felt like girlfriends hanging out doing what we love! Alex’s heart for people and her craft are unmatched. You will love every single image! Years later, I still LOVE and use mine and can’t wait to work together for updated ones soon!"

"Alex photographed our twin maternity session and our family photos when our babies turned six months old. It's so special to have such a sweet time in our life captured so beautifully! Alex made the whole experience enjoyable and seamless, from planning our outfits to receiving our images. She's good at what she does, and you won't regret having her as your photographer!"



Working with Alex has always been a breeeeeze which as a busy business owner is SO important!! With little direction she made all of our products look professional, while still adding a personal touch. I can’t recommend her enough!



"We had the best experience when Alex took our photos! She brought calmness to the chaos of our young family and directed the session in a way that took all the pressure off. Alex captured the unique personalities of our kids and the in-between, candid moments that tell a story of our current season of life. Photos from our session are hanging all over my house, and I know they will forever be so special to us!"
