Beauty Behind the Lens

A picture truly does tell a thousand words. And when the moment is captured by a pristine eye, in perfect lighting, exuding all the “feels”, you know you’ve recorded a treasured piece of personal history. My dear friend, Alicia, captures it all and more. I am so excited to feature her as a fellow Leading Lady and talented photographer. She balances a lively career with being both Mom and Wife, and doing it all in grace and style. Coupled with a passion for artistry, she keeps a busy photography schedule in her spare time. Did I mention she also draws and paints? As an Art History major, I suppose you couldn’t expect less, but still … what an eye.

And can we have a moment just for her hair? Endless locks for days and effortlessly teased.

Currently based in the Atlanta, GA area, Alicia has truly made a name for herself among the community, thru her emerging side photography business, “Photography by Alicia M. Austin”. She has ventured out and found all the great metroplex landscapes, while also finding those hidden backdrop treasures you will WOW over. Family portraits, engagements, newborns, solo shots … she does it all and with impeccable detail. There’s not a hair misplaced or wardrobe malfunction to worry about, as she will fix, trim, and shape you for the shot. If you need to “suck in”, she will straight up tell you … (in a polished way, of course). That’s my kind of photographer!

See below for some shots that radiate life, love, and happiness …

Her husband and son continue to be a burning inspiration for her work, as seen thru the lens of an incredibly loving mother and wife …

When I commented on how stinkin’ adorable the below photos are, Alicia told me she made the Scarecrow costume. Of course she did. What can’t she do? Nothing … the answer is “nothing”.

In addition to her all encompassing talent, she is an amazing friend. Selfless, loving, supportive, and genuinely interested in investing in others. I thrive on surrounding myself with women who “rise by lifting others” and Alicia truly exhibits Leading Lady qualities. I happened to recently be in her city and we had a glorious evening of wining (pinky up) and dining. And lucky for me, I get to have a Hawaiian spa day with her in the coming weeks! Aloha!
