I fancy myself one of those graceful, put-together girls who can wear heels (and not wobble), drink martinis (without spilling), and pull off a front-tuck (without looking like I just accidentally got my shirt caught in my pants when I put them on). But instead, I'm the girl who wears Converse with dresses, prefers jumping on a trampoline to doing squats, drinks bourbon when I'm casual and Scotch when I'm fancy, and could name all of the Mercury 7 astronauts, but not a single Real Housewife.

Did we just become best friends?

You have such a gift for these branding photos, I love your eye! Being a photographer, I always knew I'd hire you and no one else:) You're SO GOOD! HIRE HER.

 "It was always a yes!"

I wanted the option of a photographer that we would kind of have a first dibs type of schedule with, and someone I enjoy for photos, personality, and aesthetic.  I've had a few quick turnarounds and have been thankful for your speed. If you're looking for a reliable, quirky photographer that's easy to communicate with and does an excellent job capturing shots, Alicia is the gal!

I wanted to elevate my shop page and listings and for it to finally look professional and take my business more seriously. I am in love with my photos and they are better than I even imagined! Alicia thought of so many ideas I hadn't and I loved everything!

"Alicia asked the perfect questions for me to know what I wanted."

One of my original subscription clients, Sense Studios and I have worked together to create a full stockpile of imagery for social media and online.

I've been working with Finch for years on everything from shop photography, product photos, brand lifestyle, and even retreats and events.

Preparing for the holiday season, Cowbell Kitchen prepared lots of seasonal goodies for promotional imagery. They wanted a moodier-lit look with vintage style props.

I worked with Mya Saray, a family owned hookah company, on a full-day studio shoot for their newest hookahs. The images are being used for marketing, including trade show banners and an updated catalog.

Sensible Stylista, aka Kim Kong, modeled in these autumn promo images for Brew'd Coffee Bar in DC, featuring La Colombe Coffee.
