Foodie - I enjoy regularly having friends fill our home while frantically darting around my kitchen with 3 pans on the stove, something in the oven, mixer going, cutting boards laid everywhere, and calling for my husband to wash the knives again. If food is a love language, I have it. I'm obsessed with exploring the world of food and then finding ways to share what I've learned. It brings happiness, community, and the positive effects of a full stomach.

If you're a fellow foodie, you might appreciate the colorful craziness of my Pinterest boards. Expect some version of organized chaos. https://www.pinterest.com/aliciawoodphotography/boards/

 

Outdoors Fanatic - I've lived half my life in Colorado and the other half in Bend, Oregon. So I've basically been raised outdoors. And even though I'm a complete wimp in cold weather, I still find myself out exploring some new trail or overlook despite the temperature. On warm days I take 7 mile walks, hike mountains, swim in lakes, sit around campfires, and lay in the grass. On cold days I ice skate, build snow forts, sit in every outdoor hot tub I can find, and still take walks (just not as long ones). So if the location you have in mind for a session takes a bit of a hike, you've piqued my interest! 

Performer - The performing arts have always occupied a large portion of my life. I began dance and piano lessons at a young age and often would write, produce, direct, and perform shows alongside my younger siblings (who would participate under some portion of their own choice/blackmail). A performing arts group gave me the opportunity to travel around much of the USA, Canada, England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. Over two trips in my teens, I was on the road for 5 months and performed over 130 concerts. When I got married and had my first kiddo I somehow forgot about my love of performing and the community it creates. I actually thought for a while that I had to be finished with those dreams because I was a mother now. Thank goodness for some amazing friends who saved me from that silly thought! I've been performing again for about 8 years in musical theatre shows in Central Oregon and fortifying my passions with vocal, dance, and acting classes. So don't be surprised when your photographer suddenly is doing a pirouette camera-in-hand or harmonizing with "Uptown Funk". It's just what I do. 

Family - My husband, Micah, and I got married in 2011 after being friends for a year and dating for a year after. We would talk for hours as friends and once we began dating those hours basically turned into days. He is the smartest person I know and always has a new topic to share his input on. After 9 years of being around each other all the time, I just want to be around him more. We also share our lives with two little girls, Alexa (7) and Kaylyn (3). They are energetic bundles of craziness that spread dress-up clothes up the stairs, fill the house with giggles, and leave peanut butter in the most random places. The four of us enjoy making pancakes (normally pink with sprinkles), playing at the park, gardening in the backyard, and playing Mariokart!
