I'm Alma, the lady with the big camera that loves to shoot people! I started studying photography in college after realizing that I had the keen ability to see and sense the perfect image and a very real urge to capture it! I have always craved the best gear I can get my hands on.
Part of this desire to capture and document comes from the fact that I have experienced the loss of several loved ones early on in my life. Unfortunately, they tragically did not leave behind quality photographs before their deaths. In response I seemed to always want to carry a camera around for documentary purposes and to celebrate life and honor my loved ones.
But, I did not become a pro photographer right after college. No I had lots and lots of other jobs, including flight attendant and professional movie extra to name a few. I also worked for five other photography companies, and one of them- Beach Portraits Photography became an apprenticeship and taught me more than school I think.
I come from a family of artists. My sister is the acclaimed equestrian painter, Katherine Landikusic. My mother sculpts and my father was an incredible painter. Photography is my form of expression and art medium.
In addition, portrait photography is all about capturing emotions, personalities and the dynamics of various relationships. And when I photograph you and your loved ones, that's always my goal.
I shoot with years of experience and knowledge on how to light, slightly pose and stage a portrait. I have developed my own style that I believe is current with modern trends. I love natural light! But I do find that in order to get magazine quality images off camera lighting is often necessary.
I believe my style is a delicate balance of documentary & lifestyle portraiture with artistic directin and posing for the most flattering portrait. I do not like forced smiles and often find children look best with no smile at all. Forced posing can be stiff and awkward and ruin a portrait.
It is always my goal to collaborate with my clients. When we work together while planning the session, and during the session then this is when the magic happens!
I shoot with Nikon Full Frame equipment and portrait glass. My favorite body is the D750 and my favorite lens is the 85mm 1.2. I bring back up camera body and lenses to each session.
Lastly, I do all my own editing in Lightroom and Photoshop. I believe the post processing, or editing is as important as the shooting. I have spent years developing and mastering this skill and would not allow anybody else to edit my images at this time.
