I'm Alexandra Hunt, and I'm a hopeless romantic and recovering perfectionist (thanks, 4 children and 3 furbabies!) I put my heart into everything I do - whether it's photographing your precious babies, or taking care of my own!
I have a strong affinity for anything old-fashioned and have been called an "old soul" since I was little. The smell of old books puts a smile on my face, and lace curtains make me swoon! My idea of Heaven is living in an old farmhouse in PEI, next to a rambling orchard and a view of the sea, while our many children and pets run around in meadows. (Wait - that may just be the plot of Road to Aveonlea...oops!)
Come to my house and you likely find me baking and singing along to 1920s songs, or pottering about in the garden with my beloved roses.
Alexandra graduated UBC with the intention of becoming a pediatric neonatologist (newborn specialist), but ended up working across the country for a wedding planning company based in New York. A successful blogger with a readership in the millions, her work gained attention and she was encouraged to "go pro" with her wedding photography.
The rigors and stress of years as a successful wedding photographer led to multiple pregnancy losses, and eventually to Traditional Chinese Medicine and the advice that would change her life:
"In many cultures, women who cannot get pregnant or carry are put in positions where they work with babies...
...have you ever tried baby photography?"
15 years and thousands of babies later, all of her dreams have now come true:
she is the mother of four children (including twins), and in a photography sense, a newborn specialist after all!
Alexandra Hunt is a fine art maternity and baby photographer based out of Langley, British Columbia, serving Vancouver and its surrounding areas.
