Hello! My name is Alicia but you can call me Ali!

I own a home in Effingham, Illinois and I share it with my boyfriend Clay. We have five "fur children." Jenny, & Katniss (both cats) and Hank (our overly happy black lab), Mae & Luna (our adorable Great Dane's)

I have been taking photos since I was 16. It started off with me taking photos of abstract things for my DeviantART account; which then grew into taking photos of my friends. When I was a senior in High School that's when I got my big break. I took over half of my graduating class's senior photos! It was a truly awesome experience and to look back on the year book now to say I took that, and that, and that.. is so cool!  In February of 2015, I opened a studio here in Effingham.  I'm located inside the Lincoln Land Building; Suite #5! I'm truly on cloud nine at this point. Opening a studio has been a dream of mine; and to do photography full time is just what I've always wanted.

 

 

Currently I volunteer for Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep, an organization committed to providing the gift of remembrance photography for parents suffering the loss of a baby born sleeping. 

 

I am a PPA Member with the Professional Photographers of America. 

I am also a Certified Newborn Photographer with American Association of Newborn Photography.

 

Voted #1 People's Choice For Photographer & Studio in Effingham 2017

 

I look forward to meeting you; feel free to contact me with questions!
