Meet Alexandra Ryoo Fotography Newborn & Family Photographer
Tell us a little about yourself…
I was born and raised in Houston, so I can proudly say I’m a Houstonian! Growing up my favorite subjects were anything that could get my creative juices flowing. I married my high school sweetheart and we immediately relocated to South Korea for a few years. Towards the end of my stay, I realized that I had a real interest in baby photography. I gave birth to my first son and he quickly became my muse. I remember entering the world of photography and feeling so overwhelmed. I felt like I had been living under a rock and didn’t know this world even existed. It was game on for me! I wanted to learn anything and everything that had to do with photography. I am now seven years into my photography business and so blessed to claim it as my career!
What’s your mom story?
Being a mom is such a whirlwind experience and I’m sure every mom can relate. You know that saying it takes a village? Well it sure does, and my ship would probably sink if I didn’t have my “people.” Between school, homework, baseball and everything and the above, life can get pretty crazy. I have to say that having my own business allows my schedule to be flexible and to be the stay-at-home mom that I want to be for my boys. There are lots of sleepless nights since I tackle everything after my family goes to sleep each night…but I wouldn’t change it for the world!
What kind of photography do you do?
I specialize in newborn, maternity, and family photography.
What was your favorite photoshoot?
My favorite photo shoot was the moment when I realized that I had found my photography style. These moments are ever evolving, and so exciting when they happen.
If you could choose a destination to photograph, where would that be?
If I could shoot in one place, I would probably choose South Korea. It’s funny, I knew I wanted to do photography while I was living there but hadn’t purchased my camera until I came back to the United States. I think back now…if only I knew what I know now, back then, and had my camera, the places I could have photographed! I can’t wait to go back and shoot there one day.
