As sweet and as effortless family sessions appear to be in a curated feed on Instagram or even a blog post, we all know that is far from the truth.  Family sessions are a lot of work for both the family and photographer!  Having followed Savan of Savan Photography for quite some time, I reached out to her about a mentorship in photographing family portraits on film and boy, she did NOT disappoint.  

Savan is the queen of emotion filled photography in all aspects of her work.  The way she can tell a families story is enough to bring tears to your eyes!  She is driven and passionate about her clients.  I was so honored to have had the opportunity to learn from such a role model in this industry.  

We both had the pleasure of photographing Moriah’s sweeter than sweet family here in the Joshua Tree desert!  I walked away from our time together with so much knowledge and a newfound love for creating art with my portraits.  More than that, I walked away with a friend and lifelong mentor.  For that, I am forever greatful!

BEHIND THE LENS

ABOUT alexis

At home near the sea. Back porch sittin' listening to the sounds of the low country.  Jeans and a tee. Waffle House. Jersey girl. Kane Brown on repeat.

Yes. You read that right. Jersey girl. Born and raised. If you've ever watched Jersey Shore ... yep. Spent many a summer on that board walk. While I will always remember where I come from I'm never going back! I've fallen in love with the South Carolina low country and I'm here to stay. As a Marine Corps veteran I've been a place or two around the US but my heart calls Beaufort home. I love to laugh so tell me your best dad jokes (I might save them for later). A down to earth mama to three making my little southern cottage house a home.
