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

I live in Effingham, Illinois with my husband Clay. We have two extremely active boys, Joel & Madden!

We also have four "fur children." Hank (our overly happy black lab); and Mae & Luna (our adorable Great Dane's), Kit our cat, and we have a fish who we call Fish..... 


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 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 am located at 505 S Maple, Effingham IL 62401


 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.
