With You In It
I am a parenthood photographer.
I help you get in your family photos by getting in front of my camera. The best part is, your kids get to have tangible memories to keep forever.
You've come to the right place if:
you're always the one behind the camera
your kids don't have enough photos of you
your family photos are stuck on your phone
your family library is lacking photo albums
you've never hired a photographer before
you're ready to have your family story told
I offer four unique photography packages to help you get in the picture.
Every package I offer can include a photo album!
You can receive printed memories without having to do the work.
Did you know that photos are the only tangible thing we have to hold in our hands that contain the faces of our loved ones?
I care that your kids will grow up and have family albums full of photos of them with you, their parents.
So I've made it easy to make this happen.
Your role is to live your family story and my job is to tell it.
I guarantee that after your session, you will have peace of mind knowing your kids now have a family album full of photos of you in their childhood and the way they'll always remember you.
Here's How It Works:
1. You Book Your Family Session
2. I Come To Your Home
3. You Live Your Life
4. I Take Photos
5. You Get Tangible Memories
I love how happy I look. I'm usually very self-conscious, and in my head about my imperfect mom bod, my post-partum hair, and I never never NEVER smile
with my teeth in photos
(not even on my
Alex caught me enjoying my daughter unselfconsciously , and my smile is as real as it has ever been. There's one thing to know you enjoy your kid, there's another to see it.
Having family photos done allows me to halt time for a moment. We make ourselves so hectic, consciously or unconsciously. It gives me the opportunity to gaze at my children and wife, really look at them, and allows me to see something genuine that would no doubt be lost in the chaos of trying to organize one “group shot of us”. It’s a commitment that you have to think about and I’m going to do this because life happens so fast, but it’s the best decision Liz and I have made.
Having Alex there from the early morning onward to capture our typical day, made me realize so many special moments happen that I easily let pass by. She captured the sweet looks my baby gives me, the laughter we share, the cheekiness and moods of my toddler, the slow moments of breastfeeding, the details and the beauty of motherhood.
EVERYONE probably says this, but I have probably close to 1500 photos on my phone since Ben was born and I'm probably in 50 of them, and 40 of them are crappy selfies!! My husband lost the photos on his phone recently, and he had taken a lot of the pictures of Ben and I that are now gone, so that makes having these images even more important/special!
Hi, I'm Alex
I'm so happy you're here!
I am a self taught photographer and I love my job.
I started Wild Eyed in 2010 after friends asked me to shoot their engagement photos which then led me to dressing my sisters up in my mum's wedding dress and taking photos of them so I could create some sort of portfolio. To this date, I have shot 75 weddings and over 400 family sessions. Clients have flown me around the world (India, Morocco and Peru to name a few places) to document their lives.
The older I get, the more I realize the importance of photography.
We take photos to remember.
The older I get, the more I find myself looking at my own family photos from when I was a kid and teen and wanting to see my family history in albums.
And now as an adult, I hire someone each year to document me with my pets (my little family) because I know, down the road, I will want to have these memories of us together.
I LOVE that I get to use my talent in this way.
It's an important job and I'm happy to help your family.
