Alexandria Harris at your service or better known as Lex of LexPhotography . I have been capturing memories for going on 10 years. My main focus has always been children and family photography. Capturing kids many facial expressions is always a fun challenge, especially if they are creating a more natural looking modeling portfolio.
I’m always surprised at how fast my model kids and tweens make friends at the sessions with kids they have never met.
As a kid capturing something on my old Barbie camera and getting it developed was the best feeling in the world. Those blurry photos were the start of my interest in photography. As my cameras changed over the years my interest in photography didn’t. It wasn’t until college I found a knack for people photography and started freelancing.
I was blessed to have a friend with a studio who allowed me to learn studio shooting as well as outdoor shooting. The love I put in each frame comes from listening to my clients and collaborating my vision with theirs and giving them the opportunity to have each and every frame in the form of works of printed art. Some of the ideas I’ve turned into art are truly based straight out of my client’s imaginations. Then other days when I find a client willing or I shoot for magazine print I get to create concepts all on my own Like in the photos I’m sharing. These are my more recent modeling sessions. The group of teens came together for several shots in different locations. They did an amazing job and I wish each one of them success. In regards to my shooting style, I have a plan in my head but I usually wing it in the field. I would rather the poses come more naturally and be open to surprise photo opportunities that come up at a location. For example, I had a plan in my head for the skateboard photos but after a switch to a new location I winged the whole session but it came out spectacular. I surveyed my area and came up with shots on the fly. I find that no matter where you shoot as long as the person is the true focus you have nothing to fear, follow the basic photography rules and shoot away. My style I believe has always been more in the moment and natural. Which I believe children and tweens should always be.
