One of the most amazing things about being a photographer is getting to meet Instagram friends in real life. So when K reached out to me after a few months of chatting on the ‘gram, I was over the moon! And after two years of Covid, the opportunity to connect with other people, especially with other moms, will always feel special. As soon as we met at Beeks Bight, I knew the Malhotra’s family session was going to be one for the books.
In the same way that some people plan for months to have their session in the Lupine bloom, other people luck into it. After a few emails back and forth, K and I had initially decided on shooting at the UC Davis Arboretum; but when Beeks Bight began to bloom the week of their family session, I knew it was fate! The Lupine made the sweetest, most serene backdrop for their session.
K+V, thank you for wandering through the blooms and chasing the sun with me! It was such a delight to capture you and your fam!
HI, I’M ALLEXA!
I’m a wife, mom, Gryffindor, and photographer based in Northern California. I’m obsessed with all stages of Happily Ever After and capturing the in-between of people loving each other. I believe that the true magic of photography coexists with the posing; it’s in the forehead kisses, the giggles over unsaid jokes, and the blissful feeling of you & your partner cuddling your newborn baby on your couch; it’s in the way your dad looks at you when he sees you in your wedding dress, and the way your daughter laughs when you tickle her tummy. I’m currently booking for 2022 and 2023 and would LOVE to chat more- be sure to reach out on my contact page or come say hi on Instagram!
