Hoping to capture an engagement? Need photos of new merchandise for your store? Maybe you just want professional portraits because why not?

I’ve got you covered.

But first, an FAQ:

Who are you?

I’m Aleyna, a South Georgia native who’s been living in Baltimore for the past four years. Though my degree is in creative writing, I’ve always loved photography — in fact, I got my first 35mm camera when I was nine years old. I’ve since graduated from light leaks and lens smudges to DSLR and, now, mirrorless photography. Professionally, I’ve shot photos for the Georgia Southern University Honors College, capturing celebrations, symposiums, and a study abroad trip to Ireland. I’ve also taken photos for the Bainbridge Little Theatre in my hometown. I gravitate most toward portrait and travel photography; the latter can be found all over the internet (check out my portfolio to see where). While most of my portrait photography has been for fun, I’m venturing into freelance photography for the first time, which brings me to the next question…

What kind of photos do you shoot?

I love experimenting with light, shadows, and reflective surfaces. I’m happy to shoot anywhere, but I have a soft spot for floral settings. Check out my portfolio to get a good idea of what my style is, but also keep in mind that I’m happy to tailor my shots and editing to your preferences!

What kind of gear do you use?

I’m currently using a Nikon Z7, which is a top-of-the-line mirrorless digital camera body. My favorite lens to shoot with is the 50mm prime lens, but I have others in my arsenal and am always building my collection.

What kind of sessions do you offer?

Here’s a list of the kinds of shoots I can provide. If what you’re looking for isn’t on the list, don’t hesitate to reach out and ask me about it! Odds are, I can make it happen.

  • Individual portraits
  • Group sessions
  • Couples
  • Commercial (merchandise, food, etc)
  • Events under 50 people

These can be tailored to any occasion: graduation, prom, engagements, birthdays, Christmas cards, cosplays…anything!

Where do you shoot?

I live in the Hampden neighborhood of Baltimore and am available to shoot in the city and the DMV area as a whole. If you’re over an hour away and still want to book a shoot, we’ll figure out a location that’s convenient for both of us.

I don’t have a studio, so it’s up to you to choose a location: your college campus, a state park, your own backyard, Taco Bell…literally anywhere! That being said, if you don’t have any location in mind, I have plenty of ideas that we can discuss during our phone consultation.

Can you explain the phone consultation?

Absolutely! After you email me to inquire about scheduling a session, we’ll have a phone consultation first. This is free and does not require you to commit to anything. During this conversation, we’ll discuss your vision for the shoot, your preferred location, scheduling, and any other questions you have.
