“If the photographer is interested in the people in front of her lens, and if she is compassionate, it’s already a lot. The instrument is not the camera but the photographer.”
— Eve Arnold
I am Alexandra – Photographer and Owner of Alexandra Strong Photography. I currently reside in the Twin Cities with my son Liam and our sweet dog, Fonzie. When I'm not doing photography, I'm probably doing something related to my wellness business, Atma Prema Wellness. I have a lot of passions. I love creating, serving, and supporting people in a multitude of ways - it is my heart's deepest joy.
My photography journey began 14 years ago when I was 16 years old. For a few years it was a creative outlet and then it naturally turned into a beautiful career. I have been photographing people professionally for the last 8 years and I've met so many wonderful people along the way. I am forever grateful and humbled by the people who choose me to capture their stories!
For me, being a photographer is multidimensional. I am not only passionate about capturing the moment as it happens; I also love the creativity and joy that comes with the editing process (getting to relive the session over and over - I usually have a huge permagrin while I'm editing). I put a lot of care and thought into my sessions and images, so my heart flutters a bit when I hear how happy my clients are with their images!
Above all, I really love meeting new people and allowing them space to feel safe and comfortable, so that I can capture their true authenticity.
