Alicia was born and raised in New Haven, Connecticut and spent five years as a young adult living in Copenhagen, Denmark. Somewhere between strolling the streets of Yale University as a little girl and exploring the old cobblestone roads of Europe as an adult, Alicia developed a love for architecture, light, and the old soul feeling that comes with analog documentation. Alas, a film photographer was born in the streets of Europe somewhere in the early 2000's, one who had a keen eye for detail and an appreciation for fashion.
My style of photography tells the story of your day that is found in between moments. the belly laughter during toasts, the tears streaming down mom's cheek as you walk down the aisle, and the smile seen in the eyes of your new spouse...because forever just began.

I was not the child who grew up envisioning her wedding day or playing with barbie dolls and babies. I was the girl who could be found climbing trees, playing football, and always up for a good adventure. Even though my feminine side and motherly instincts took a little bit longer than normal to develop, one thing I always knew for sure was that I wanted to be married and have a family. This is our little family, and they are truly my greatest joy and adventure.

As a young child, some of my fondest memories are of picking fresh peas and tomatoes in my grandmothers garden. She had a green thumb and a knack for growing the most delicious vegetables. While we never had a garden at my home growing up, I've always had it in the back of my mind that I wanted to learn how to be self-sustaining and have the ability to grow my own food. In the recent years, but especially during the COVID pandemic, I took to my backyard and began experimenting with a variety of fruits and vegetables. In 2020 alone (because the food supply upon the onset of COVID had me concerned) I grew tomatoes, peppers, a variety of squashes, peas, carrots, lettuce, green beans, cucumbers, strawberries, and blueberries.
I don't know if it started with reading my american girl books where the characters were resourceful and creative, or if it came from watching TV shows like Dr. Quinn medicine woman where all the women seemed to have some sort of handy skill, but somewhere along the way I decided to pick up the skill of sewing. I am not expert and, in fact, I can be found ripping out and redoing the seams of nearly every project I undertake but, still, every now and then I enjoying sitting in front of my sewing machine and listening to the quite murmur of the needle as I craft my next project - usually something for my kids that looks like it's straight from, you guessed it, the set of dr. Quinn Medicine Woman.
One of my favorite things to do is head into manhattan and explore with my kids. Despite being born and raised close to New York, I still find a new little nook or cranny every time I explore. I know the streets like the back of my hand, and can tell you where to find the best views, music, second hand shops, culture, and - mostly importantly - chocolate chip cookie (spoiler alert: it's at levain bakery). There is something about this city that invigorates my soul - the energy, the noise, the smells - in a sea of millions, somehow new york just always makes me feel like I belong.
If you want to find me in my true element, you'll have to look no further than in my kitchen. Whether I'm whipping up my latest italian dish (homemade pasta is my favorite), experimenting with ethnic cuisines (I have an indian vindaloo recipe that is to die for), or baking up a storm, I am most at ease in the kitchen. On any given weekend where I am not photographing a wedding, you'll find me in the kitchen likely creating art with pies or sugar cookies, trying to perfect my sourdough loaves (gosh, this one has been hard), or trying a new european dessert (pictured: Swedish Semla that are drool worthy).
While I will always be partial to Europe - my home away from home - I truly love exploring and traveling everywhere. Having been to 37 different countries, I have seen so much....and still feel like I've seen so little. Bucket list: New Zealand, Bali, Maldives, Chile, South Africa
On any given weekend that I'm not photographing a wedding, or galavanting around the world, you can find me in the kitchen baking pies, sugar cookies, or unique treats like Swedish Semlor. There is nothing that a spoonful of sugar can't fix.
I am an avid reader, particularly interested the topics of in medicine & biology, alternative schooling for children, historical fiction, and of course business.
We've taken our 1920's colonial home and remodeled it to be reminiscent of what inspires us around the world - the clean lines of Scandinavia, the plaster walls of Italy and Greece, and the rounded archways of France or Morocco
Don't judge me for the fact that sugar came before natural living but, truly, I see nature as our best medicine. We are avid essential oil users in our home and as a result of this lifestyle change I'm going on 6 years without being sick at all.
