Alycia Alvarez

With studios in both Dallas, TX and Tampa, FL, Alycia is an Internationally Award winning portrait photographer, who specializes in babies and children. In addition, Alycia’s work can be seen in many publications, including Rangefinder and a feature spread in Professional Children’s Portrait Photography. For every picture taken, a moment in time is remembered. Alycia’s objective with each person she photographs is to create an image that will reveal something truly unique about the individual…sharing a little bit of “who” they are, instead of just “what” they looked like. Capturing true and genuine personality is Alycia’s passion. Her style relies very little on props to uncover the true essence of her subjects and the many aspects of their character. Her goal is to create portraits that are not only loved and cherished by friends and family, but to create works of art that make complete strangers stop and admire.
