Today we’d like to introduce you to Alicia Skinner.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Alicia. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Photography has been an important part of my life for as long as I can remember. From the day I have gifted my first camera from my parents, I fell in love with the art of photography. Fast forward many years and I attended Southern Methodist University where I studied photography and communications. Although it was clearly a passion of mine, I had no idea at the time that it would become a career. After working communications jobs in the corporate and non-profit worlds, I ultimately decided to take the leap to pursue my passion as my career and, in turn, found my mission through hardships I was forced to overcome.
After several years, my husband and I realized that the road to starting a family was not going to be a simple one for us. Various infertility treatments ultimately led to our first daughter. The journey of adoption, through its trials and tribulations, led us to our second daughter. In addition, I experienced a major car wreck in which my life was miraculously spared by the grace of God. Going through these trials in life made it crystal clear to me that life is a gift to never be taken for granted and there is nothing more important than celebrating and documenting this gift of life we’ve been given with each other.
At Alicia Skinner Photography, our mission is to tell our clients’ stories and to ensure each client feels special through an exquisite experience like no other as we celebrate and commemorate the beauty each individual brings to this life. Every life is a miracle and a legacy to be remembered. Whether a precious newborn, a woman awaiting a chance to let her inner beauty shine outward, a new mom craving the opportunity to be taken care of and feel glamorous, a family who wants unforgettable portraits that will serve as their legacy for generations to come or an individual seeking a modern headshot, we’re here to celebrate you and your story by providing you with meaningful, timeless portraits and an unforgettable luxury experience.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
The challenges with building and developing my business mostly came in the form of time management. Building a business takes a massive amount of time, dedication and a huge amount of trial and error. It took time to develop my voice, style and the business skills and logistics necessary to achieve a successful business.
As a working woman, mom and type-A personality, I’m always wanting to learn more and to be the best I can be in each area of my life. Over the years, I’ve learned that prioritizing, planning and setting realistic expectations and goals are not only game-changers for me but the key to my happiness and success.
These lessons allow me to provide the best experience possible to my clients, spending quality time with them exploring their hopes, dreams and desires for their sessions so that they have an amazing experience and artwork with attention to detail that fills their hearts with happiness and joy as they look at it on their walls or turn the pages of their albums.
