“Alex is truly the best! As a photographer myself, I’m very particular about photos and having them feel and look natural. For my business headshots, I wanted something fun and relaxed as opposed to stiff and corporate. Alex exceeded my expectations; I feel like myself in the photos, but they still have a professional feel. If you’re looking for authentic images with the highest quality, Alex is your girl.”

Together we will dive deep into your goals and target customer. Using that information, we’ll create systems and funnels to get leads to you (using ads and SEO) as well as TONS of tips for growing your following.
- Make you look amazing
We’ll capture a variety of gorgeous headshots that you can use across all of your channels as well as for things like podcast interviews and magazine features
- Create all the visual content you need
Finally, we’ll create a set of images that fit your content pillars so that you have three months worth of content for your social media feeds.

We can also include professionally-shot reels and short videos that fit your brand!
- Start seeing results, fast
You can start implementing everything instantly and watch your followers and sales numbers grow!
Alex is an amazing photographer and we are so delighted with the work she did for us. I have had some hard times with feeling insecure in photo sessions in the past, and Alex did an excellent job of making it feel easy and joyful! I cannot recommend her enough and am already looking forward to our next shoot!
I’m Alex Stead; I hold a Bachelors of Business Administration with a focus in online marketing.
I am an award-winning photographer, content creator, and online marketer who uses my combined skills to bring visions to life.
I am based in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador and available for travel across Eastern Canada.
I bring a decade of experience and creativity to each project I work on; whether that’s a media shoot with a publication, social media content consultation, or a branding photo session.
My goal is to capture photos that tell a beautiful story. I would love to be a part of yours.
When I’m not taking photos, you can usually find me curled up in a hammock in Bannerman Park with a good book and my dog.
Alex has a knack for picking up on the right moments for a photo and her work is a testament to that. I love all the photos she has sent me and it’s given me a lot of content to work with, so it makes my job a lot easier. I’d definitely recommend hiring her and will continue to do so for future projects.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I am super awkward and hate having my photo taken. Can you make me look and feel more comfortable (or just photoshop me in)?
A: Making sure that people both look AND feel comfortable is my zone of genius. I have photographed thousands of people over the past twelve years, and the overwhelming response I get afterwards is always how easy and relaxed the experience was. If you are a regular person who has never modeled before or who hates getting their photo taken, I would love to make sure that you get images that you truly love. The shoot is only finished when we’re both thrilled with the result.
Q: I don’t know my content pillars (or, I don’t know what that even means). Can you help?
A: No worries! When we meet for your VIP day, the first thing we’ll do is go over some social media strategy basics. I’ll fill in all of the blanks using data we already have available, and show you how to use it to your advantage.
Q: Can I pair a headshot with a couples/family shoot?
A: Sure can! I’d recommend booking an hour-long session for this.
Q: Where can we take these photos?
A: The photos can be taken either at my studio on Water Street or in a cozy downtown space. At this time, I am not traveling for headshot sessions. If you are booking a VIP or multi-day session, I am happy to chat about finding a location that matches your brand.
Q: Is your studio accessible?
A: My studio is on the second floor and accessible only by stairs. If you would like to book a shoot at an accessible location, please feel free to reach out at and I am happy to coordinate an alternate location or otherwise do my absolute best to accommodate your accessibility needs.
Q: What should I do to prepare?
A: You can do as little or as much as you’d like! Booking a hair and makeup artist is a great way to start your day and help you feel like the best version of yourself. I recommend bringing a few outfit options (a mix of casual and formal) as well as a handful of small props: your laptop or iPad, notebook, and a couple of your favourite books. If you own a product-based business, bring as many different options as you can fit in a few tote bags.
Q: I’d like to book something, but I’m not sure which option is right for me. Can we chat first?
A: Sure can! You can book a get to know you call at this link.
