Had a wonderful experience shooting with Althea. This was my first time ever getting professional pictures done so I was very nervous. Althea guided us the whole time making the experience so smooth and natural. She guided us into positions and poses with her artistic eye, and the way she edits her photos is just absolutely beautiful. Her style is so unique! If you want to work with someone professional, warm and kind who is extremely talented I would definitely recommend Althea. I cant wait to schedule pictures of the baby next fall!

Althea was an amazing photographer for our LOTR- themed wedding. After seeing her work and chatting on the phone, we knew she was the right fit for us. She got all of the highlights of the evening and the photos are STUNNING. As an actor who has had numerous rounds of headshots over the years and walked red carpets, these photos turned out incredible. You will no regret booking her. Seriously. Cannot recommend enough!!

Althea is simply an amazing photographer and artist. Her pictures always turn out incredible. We have done 2 shoots with yher so far, pregnancy and family, but we have already decided that she will be our forever photographer. Our entire experience with Althea has been wonderful. She always helps me find a good location, outfits and narrow down what I have in mind. She also makes you feel very comfortable during the shoot while she’s seamlessly captures your amazing moments. I can’t recommend her enough and can’t wait to book our next shoot!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I make sure to connect with each client on the phone before a shoot. I want to get to know you better, hear your story - also, tell you a little bit about myself and what to expect at our shoot!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I started with a black and white film class in 2014, from there I’ve been mostly self taught - but have learned a lot from mentorships as well.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I started doing photography in more of a product photography realm, but after years of that I just felt like something was missing. That missing element was human emotion!
