Florida’s First Family
We had the honor of being the first, non-campaign/administration photographers in the Governor’s Mansion after Governor DeSantis was inaugurated. We partnered with Rowland Publishing to share the story of Florida’s new first family in Tallahassee Magazine, 850 Business Magazine and Emerald Coast Magazine.
On May 2nd, 2019, I spend a little more than half a day with Tallahassee Mayor John Dailey. We meet at the Tallahassee Police Department Headquarters, for a memorial service. Then, I rode with him to the Tallahassee School of Math and Science where he read a few books and had a Fortnite Dance Competition with a class of kindergarteners. We drove the city, talking about growth, development and preservation of the history in our community. Next stop was the Leadership Tallahassee Class 36 graduation and finally to the Bond neighborhood. And that was all before 1:15pm… We partnered with Rowland Publishing to share the story of Tallahassee’s new mayor in Tallahassee Magazine.
Always Be Connecting
Domi Station was one of the places where we first found community when we moved to Tallahassee. Executive Director Lucas Lindsey, Community Manager Sabrina Torres and Director of Incubator Programs Dominick Ard’is have become like family to us. When we got asked to capture people that mean so much to us in a place that means so much to us, we didn’t hesitate. We were honored to partner with Thomasville Center for the Arts to share the story of Domi Station in THOM Magazine.
Portrait Of A Refugee
Often times, our love for the masses hampers our love for the individual. This was the thought that kept going through my (Alex) mind as I keep meeting people in our community who fled for their lives and now call Tallahassee home. At the same time, refugees seem to be a political pawn for both parties, but these are real people who are now our neighbors and we wanted to showcase that. In the spring of 2017, a project called Refugees of TLH was born. We were honored that Professional Photographers of America wanted to share the story of the project in Professional Photographer Magazine.
