Although born in Indiana, there have been many places that I have called home. With an ever evolving lust for growth, my travels brought me to many spectacular locations; spanning from northern California to New York City. I sought out enriching new experiences on a personal journey of growth across the US; and all the while, training my photographic eye.
Officially, my obsession began
within the walls of my high school’s darkroom. It quickly grew beyond the confines of the classroom but gradually transformed with the advent of the digital camera. As an adult, I made a few appearances in front of the lens. Consequently, those experiences helped me further train my eye. Furthermore, I honed directive communication skills while building my fundamental understanding of studio lighting techniques. During this period, I also provided freelance image retouching. Due to my strong history in image editing, I am confident in my abilities. Because I personally retouch all of my images, I can guarantee results meet my standard of quality.
Upon moving to Washington, I have been fully invested in my photographic career. As a full-time staff and product photographer, I developed successful working relationships with numerous Seattle-based businesses. I also partnered with prosperous local mobile portrait studios, producing a high volume of school and sports portraits. This allowed for me to regularly work with large groups of children as young as 3 and up. Additionally, I have photographed newborns as young as 7 days. I also particularly enjoy photographing teenagers on the cusp of adulthood.
My editing work has been featured on alternative modeling websites as well as some namely New York City, weekly print publications. My photography has been featured in catalogs, several online storefronts, promotional mailers, web-based promotional material, and other various adverts.
Life is good.
Alaina is fantastic to work with. She is helpful, prompt, and goes beyond the call of duty. From staging the scene to final edits, she is capable and talented throughout the entire process.
Wow! They (the images) turned out AMAZING!!! Thank you so much! I LOVE them! You have a gift!
Alaina was instrumental in helping me and my boys have a great photo shoot. She helped with suggestions on what to wear (colors/pattern wise) and she effortlessly brought out their smiles and silly faces alike.
Working with Alaina was fantastic… I was thoroughly impressed with her professionalism and her ability to just go with the flow. I was pretty awkward and uncomfortable at first, but we ended up having a great time laughing and being creative together. The pictures she took made me feel like a bombshell and even caught the attention of the man who is now my husband.
Prompt and Professional. Alaina produces quality images that lead to successful sales.

Professional, patient, and easy to work with to get the imagery and retouching you are looking for and need for a great photo.
Alaina took senior photos for my son – and was able to accommodate us on a short notice. She inspired confidence that we would end up with quality shots and we were very pleased with the results.
Alaina has a photographer’s eye for sure; put simply……natural talent and ability!
My husband and I recently had a photo shoot with the spectacular Alaina of Ciceri Photo. I was a little concerned about how my husband would do, as he never “modeled” before… My fears were immediately put to rest by Alaina’s professionalism and easygoing demeanor… The photos came out PHENOMENAL and I could not be more pleased! Everything about them, from the lighting to the composition, is perfect. These photos will be cherished for many years to come. I can not say enough good things about Alaina, her ability or her creativity!
