Alice is devoted to capturing the essence of ancestry, motherhood, love and connection through film photography. Her dedication to family and loving memories was passed down from her grandmother, Alice Claire (the business’ namesake), who inspired Alice to create art that could be cherished by each new generation. Today, she uses film to capture life’s heartfelt moments in all stages of life. From maternity and newborn photography to sessions with growing families, she prioritizes the importance of turning each of your modern day moments into timeless heirlooms.
“Alice Thigpen is simply amazing! She is so down to earth and has a way of bringing natural ease that makes you feel relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera. I have worked with Alice on two different occasions, a mom & daughter in-home lifestyle shoot and an outdoor family shoot. Alice is so talented and her artistry is incomparable.”
“I had the privilege of having a newborn session with Alice Claire Photography. The entire experience was great. My baby was only a few weeks old, and I have a 2 1/2 year old, so you can imagine how hectic our house is. Alice was so patient and helpful with the children. She came fully prepared with candy to bribe my two year old for the shots, and it definitely worked! She got the exact photos I wanted and I will forever treasure the precious pictures of my daughters.”
"Before Alice came to photograph my family, I warned her how crazy and high-energy my kids are. She reassured me that "real-life" photography is her specialty. And WOW, was she right. Not only did she have a ton of patience and understanding for my young twins, but was fantastic at reminding me about the beauty in chaos of our reality. She truly captured an honest, raw, and beautiful story of our family."
Every family is beautiful in its own unique way and that’s why each session is completely customized to each client’s specific needs. Whether your family is active and full of high energy, calm and serene, or somewhere in between, I will work together with you to create a session that reflects your family’s distinct personality. My goal is to make the process simple and pleasurable by sharing my expertise and resources with you before the camera ever comes out. This includes everything from advising on the best type of clothing to wear, choosing the best location for your photoshoot, and prepping you on how to best prepare for your session. All of these details and more will help lead towards the ultimate goal, creating your own modern heirlooms you will cherish now and one day pass on to the next generation.
