Hi there!  I'm Alex.  I love photographing High School seniors and other really cool people :)  I was born in Russia, grew up in Brooklyn, and now make my home here in Tucson.  I love the desert, but only in the winter.  I'm still convinced snow is magic and I miss the crunch of it under my boots.

REAL is the new PERFECT …

Remember the days of photographers setting up elaborate lightstands and you showing up in your Sunday best, awkward and nervous, and feeling like anything but yourself?

If you do, didn't those days SUCK?!

I use natural light whenever possible (and it's possible 99% of the time) so the world is our studio.

Want your senior session to take place in an alley downtown, in a laundromat, coffee shop, on a mountainside?  No problem.  Want a family session of you guys fingerpainting at the kitchen table, roasting marshmellows around the firepit at dusk, enjoying ice cream cones at your favorite gelato place?  Done!

Just be you and I'll steal the best moments and give them all back to you wrapped up with ribbons, ready to share and savor forever.
