about alex


Hi! I'm Alex. I make photographs on film. You can see my commercial portfolio right here. I shoot brand photography for women-owned businesses and workshops. I also photograph lots of families. (I used to shoot weddings.) I've been in business since 2011.

I'm a serial sharer and a bit of a know-it-all, so I started writing a just-for-fun newsletter called Handpicked with links to things I think are especially interesting, inspiring, and/or uplifting. It goes out every Wednesday. People love it! You can subscribe here.

Sometimes I talk about my faith (and faith challenges) on Instagram. I was raised in a devout Mormon faith tradition. I meditate daily and practice taking steps on a path toward knowing God, who I believe to be my Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother. My beliefs center on compassion, forgiveness, and emulating Christ.

Three of my secret talents are: finding the best recipes, french braiding, and feeling how others feel. 

I live in Manhattan Beach, CA with my husband Nate and my three small kids. 

If you'd like to hire me to shoot with you, send me an email.
