“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 North Branch with my partner, teenage son, our sweet pup, and over a dozen chickens. 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 16 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 10 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 perma-grin 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.
