"You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream."
I'm Alexandra but feel free to call me Alex. I'm a Texan that grew up in Colorado for most of my childhood. I'm an ambivert; sometimes you just need to recharge your social batteries..ya know?! I'm an all around goofball and love laughing till I cry. But please ignore me once I start having a laugh attack ;) It's actually quite embarrassing.
On my days off you can find me either outside walking the dogs, hitting golf balls or inside watching the telly (Outlander, Friends, Game of Thrones, Great British Baking Show). I'm a pretty low-key kind of girl.
I LOVE to travel and I definitely consider it as one of my passions. So far I’ve been to 8 countries & numerous states, I cannot wait to add more countries into my passport. I’m always planning a trip!
I've been shooting for close to 10 years now. I grew up always wanting to create new things whether that is new art, a new song, new food, new hair...which by the way - I am a cosmetologist and I do hair as my side business :)
p.s. You should know food is my love language. I love a good cheeseburger and fries finished with a glass of red wine.
p.s.s I LOVE COFFEE
Whether I'm traveling to Scotland, the coast of California or to New York; traveling is something that feeds my soul like nothing else. When I have a chance to travel abroad you can find me at street cafe drinking a cafe au lait, taking photos of all the architecture, or chatting with strangers, running through open fields, going back on back roads - just getting lost
. If you love to travel, send me an email with your favorite place & favorite cafe! I'll just be over here dreaming up my next trip!
Every time I drive by an open field, I always envision my clients hand & hand walking through the golden grass, with the sun slowly setting, the emanate golden sky. I live for these moments, I crave these moments.
Sometimes its just nice to let down your hair and just run through an open field to let your mind release itself, soak in the fresh air. This is why I live for open fields.
I have two Jack Russell's, Baya (the darker face) & Gage (with the eye patch). These two are my little love muffins. We LOVE to go for long walks, go swim in the river & eat Ice cream. I also have 3 Cats that aren't pictured, too many animals to wrangle up. My cats names are Gnar, Echo & Kitty Kitty Meow Meow (Kitty for short). I love animals, and most animals love me. Minus my grandma's cats; she always adopts the socially awkward kitties, but HEY they need loving too ;)
When I was younger my Grandparents would put a dollop of frozen whip cream in a coffee cup with a splash of coffee...ever since then I've been hooked. Plus I thought I looked super cool drinking "coffee" like the adults. So you could say my Grandparents started my addiction at the age of 6.
Now that I'm an adult I just drink my coffee with a little cream & no sugar!
When I'm in Europe I prefer a cappuccino or a cafe au lait. European coffee is the best:)
I live for street photography. I love taking a random persons photo whether they see me and smile or they are simply in their own world. I think about these peoples stories. Each person I take a photo of, their face is engrained in my mind. Something about them caught my eye, maybe it was the outfit they were wearing, maybe its the instrument they were playing, or maybe it was the composition. There are so many things that can play into this, but one thing that connects it all together is, that moment in time is captured and made into a photo. A moment that is etched onto film.
