Get To Know Me

I am an artist through and through. I eat, sleep and breathe art. I live for the moments I can create. Whether that be making my kids cool birthday cakes, building spaceships out of cardboard boxes, doodling for hours with my children, writing poems with my morning coffee, or my very favorite-photography.

As far as having new portraits done for my business, this was the best experience I’ve ever had! Aleena was great at executing her vision for the session, while making you feel comfortable and welcome. I don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed having my photos done, so this says a lot.The images themselves were phenomenal. I still can’t believe the quality, and neither can our friends and clients! We will be back!

I met up with Aleena in May of 2015 to get my senior pictures done and it was a great time! She is very professional, creative and friendly. She will do whatever she can to get that perfect shot, and even had ideas I wouldn't have thought of. I will definitely be going back to her for photos in the future!
