Alex's Sneak Peek

When I began taking portraits, I twisted all of my friends' arms asked very nicely if my friends would be willing to act as models to help me build my portfolio. I had several volunteers, but all of them were female. (Big surprise, right?) So, my photo galleries are sadly void of males.  In an attempt to even out the score, I've been trying to round up some fun, fearless guys, who are willing to brave the camera lens and help me out.

My husband's friend, Alex, is the only brave soul who has volunteered so far and we had his photo session on Saturday evening.  Alex is THE MOST photogenic person I have ever met! I guess it helps that he is also ridiculously adorable, too...


His girlfriend is one lucky lady, isn't she?!

There's just something women like about a pickup man (that's a reference to a country song for those of you who aren't up on country charts)...



I'm thinking Alex stands a good chance of making it on the cover of GQ some day, what do you think?...


This one is one of my favs...


Not only was Alex easy to photograph, he was also tons of fun to work with. He was up for anything and didn't think twice about posing for any of the shots that I wanted to take; he even suggested a few of his own. It's awesome working with someone so willing to try anything!

For some reason, I think that this photo makes Alex look like he should be a cop.  All he needs is the gun and the badge...


Love it!...


It was a hard choice, but this last one is my favorite from the session...


If you're thinking that Alex looks familiar it is because you've already seen him on {the blog} when I photographed him and his girlfriend, Olivia. Olivia was able to join us for our photo session, and I took a handful of photos of both of them. Here is just one of the awesome shots I took of them together...


Stay tuned for a few more fun photos of the adorable couple coming up very soon.

Thanks, Alex!! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy schedule for our photo session! It was awesome having the opportunity to photograph you again.

  2. Alex always jokes that he doesn't want an Olivia shrine in his room, but with these photos I cannot wait to start my Alex shrine:)

    These pictures are so perfect. Youre right when you said I am one lucky Lady! But we are the lucky ones to have someone as awesome as you capture us so well! Thank you once again for amazing work!
