In 2003 I started photographing anything and everything I could. In 2012 I became a photographer full time and swore I'd never have a desk job again. Technically I do sit at my desk to edit photos, but I can jump up to make my child a snack, walk our four legged children or work in the garden with my hubby so it still counts.
I'm Alex Lassiter. Photographer, mother, wife, Pinterest junkie, artist, gardener, traveler and lover of life. My hubby is a full-time musician and our 13 month old specializes in carrying potatoes and most days he will not let go of a vacuum cleaner attachment he has fallen in love with - not even for a potato.
I grew up in Durham, NC and left to explore the world for a while. I came back to this area to find a nice southern boy to marry and raise a family. That southern gentleman made me the happiest lady in the world when he said he'd like to settle down, have a munchkin and plant a huge garden with me.
We spend our days feeling thankful for the opportunities we have to make art and spend time with our beautiful child. We get to do what we love for a living and we don't ever take it for granted.
Photography isn't a career for me - I'm a photographer - it's in my blood and I wouldn't ever want to live without it. That moment when you see your client really smile for the first time - when everything melts away and you capture a tiny piece of who they really are - I'll never get tired of that.
We only get one turn around this rock and I intend to enjoy this one to the fullest! If I can make some magic happen with a digital camera, a little light and lot of love for my craft and the people I photograph, then I think that's a life worth living.
Thanks for stopping by!
