Hey! I’m Alex!
Howdy! I am Alex Mooney — the owner and principal photographer over here at Alexandria Mooney Photography in St. Louis, Missouri. I am so glad you’ve found me and stopped by to check out my snaps!
In the fall of 2013 I decided I really REALLY liked taking pictures, and wanted to starting doing it for people for more than just a hobby…and I did just that! Almost six years, hundreds of clients, hundreds of thousands of images snapped, tons of gear and equipment purchased, and millions of memories captured, here I am snapping bellies, births, babies and families! Photography has absolutely become my passion and it is what I was meant to be doing. I love capturing each and every moment I can for my clients and I hope you let me capture yours too!
When I’m not snapping I’m a mama to my three amazing kiddos here on earth – Patrick, Rosie, and Annie — and my littlest guy Clark who was stillborn in October of 2019. I am a wife to my amazing hubby (and sometimes second shooter!) Mike. For almost 12 years we had a super awesome pup Scooter, who actually is where my original business’ name came from! He unfortunately crossed the rainbow bridge to puppy heaven just before Christmas in 2018. Until my human children came along, my inspiration for my photography was my dog Scoots, and I have more pictures of him than I care to admit…so, that’s where the name Pics & Paws originated from. Even though I don’t just do dog photos, I love when people incorporate their fur children in their shoots – because they are family members too! However, as time as gone on, my clientele base has grown away from the 'paws' aspect, so in the spring of 2018 I decided it was time to lay Pics & Paws to rest and let Alexandria Mooney Photography take the reins! In the summer of 2018 I officially partnered with Missouri Baptist Medical Center to offer birth stories photography for them!
My style is one that is heavy on capturing real life -- lots of candids, lots of giggles, lots of snuggles and lots of love. I have a moody, rusticky film-inspired style where I like to use bold colors and contrasts to bring out the raw emotions in the images I’ve captured. Browse around my past images here or head over to Facebook or Instagram to take a gander at the many incredible people that have allowed me to capture their memories all these years!
Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out more about Alexandria Mooney Photography! I’m so glad you’re here and I hope I can snap you soon!
