WELCOME TO Alicia Thurston Photography

LET's WORK TOGETHER

The road I travelled to become a photographer was a long one, an uncertain one for a while. But then I got married, I had my first child and with my big moments it became so very clear. Capturing the smiles, the laughter, the tears, the tender moments, the connections we make with the people in our lives, the story we are trying to tell, all of the things, they needed to be remembered! I want to help tell your beautiful story.

I'm Alicia

Hi!

"There are not enough words to describe how happy we are with Alicia and how grateful we are that she was the one to capture our big day. We first encountered Alicia and her talent at our friends’ wedding the previous summer and were thrilled when she expressed an interest in travelling to New York City to photograph ours. She is a true talent with the loveliest demeanour, allowing her to bring out the best in her “subjects.” We had no previous experience taking professional photos and her keen eye, extensive knowledge, and friendly guidance resulted in the most beautiful photos. It’s sometimes hard to believe we are the two people appearing in these pictures!" - Steph

“Wow. I have no words. Like zero. Absolutely none. Our hearts were so full looking at our pictures. I wasn’t sure I could manage my way through them, but it actually gave me comfort to know that I will always have those memories. Because of you, and your kindness in coming to shoot our day - our very unique day. I can’t thank you enough. We are beyond blessed to know you.
So so so much love to you, for this beautiful gift.” - Kim

"When it comes to photos of the times most important to you, it's imperative to have a talent that is able to grab that moment in time and to be able to showcase it forever. 
Alicia has been through it all with us- engagement shoot, wedding shoot, maternity and newborn shoot, not to mention countless family sessions and it has meant the world to have someone like her there to ensure we can remember those moments forever. Working with Alicia is always relaxed, effortless, calming and breathtaking. Her skill and confidence is one that only comes with tons of knowledge and natural talent.
There is something very special about having a picture to reflect back on, and it's an investment I wouldn't look at lightly. When the days and years have passed, all you will have are the beautiful photos to bring you back to those important moments- and I am so grateful that we continue to get the chance to work with her to capture them." - Andrea

"Alicia is simply the best. We had hired her to come to our house when my daughter was first born for a newborn photo shoot. As a new mom, newborn photo shoots can be daunting. Having to put yourself together, your kids together and a smile on your face in those early days can be a challenge to say the least. From the moment Alicia arrived she put my mind at ease. Her calm demeanour, professional attitude and warmth shined through from the moment I opened the door. Alicia made sure everyone was comfortable and most importantly made it clear there was no rush. Newborns (and toddlers!) get cranky, need to be fed etc so I was so worried we would be rushed through the process. Certainly not the case with Alicia. She took the time to get to know our family, set up perfect shots and was patient and never once did I feel hurried to get a shot. The photos she took are so natural and completely captures our family in a single frame. Those early days can be such a blur and I feel so lucky that Alicia came to capture those beautiful moments that I can now remember forever." - Katie

I don't let anything stand in my way. I've been told I'm determined, when I set my goals, the sky is the limit. That takes a certain kind of commitment. The commitment to show up and do your best, be your best. That's all I've got, every dang day, show up, commit to be my best self and give it my all.

Laughter feeds love. That was the slogan I started with years ago and it still rings true. A smile will go a long way in life. I have the tattoo to prove it! 
If you're not having fun doing it, then it might be time to change it!
I always seek fun, I want to smile, I want to cry happy tears, I want to laugh until my belly hurts because really...is there any better feeling?!?

We should all be curious. I always want to be learning and growing. I want to be curious in my relationships with others, with clients, friends and family, to help me gain insight and be a good listener.
Curiosity allows us to be open to new ideas and perspectives. It is the doorway to creativity, knowledge and enlightenment.

We are all creative beings, some of us may be more right brained than others but we all apply creativity in some ways. It allows us to express our emotions and celebrate our individuality. 
I love that my photography allows me to free my creative self while connecting with others in their own uniqueness.
