“We spent an action packed three days learning about business, posing, lighting, stylizing a photo session, and editing. Alicia’s attention to detail was most impressive and it so valuable to observe her thought process while she put together multiple stylized shoots. She is truly creative! I really found her business advice to be invaluable! I’m ready to revamp my pricing and marketing after this workshop!Alicia puts her heart and soul into her teaching and takes a sincere interest in her students. Not everyone can be a “teacher”! I really think Alicia had exceptional abilities to connect with others and truly seems interested in personally helping them to become better photographers. It was an amazing workshop!”   – Connie Mintz

“The Pure Emotions photography workshop was in a single word…. PHENOMENAL!! It was absolutely jam packed with educational information about all aspects of creating/sustaining a successful photography business.

Alicia puts her whole heart and soul into everything she does and it shows in her photography. She taught us to dig deep down and find that inner emotion and how to bring it into our pictures. She helps you to look at things in a different way, a different light. We laughed, we cried…… you can’t help to feel connected to her! She went above and beyond what anyone would have thought coming into this workshop! If there was one workshop that you just had to do, this is the one and Alicia is the girl!

“I can’t begin to describe what a phenomenal experience taking a workshop from Alicia was/is. She has years of experience as an artist and businesswoman and is extremely passionate about her craft. A true professional, Alicia tirelessly gave of herself everyday. We crammed at least 40 hours of education into 3 days and Alicia never wavered in her attention or commitment to her students. Several wrenches were thrown at us, weather being one, and Alicia worked through them proving her ability to think on the fly and still provide us with an amazing experience. I can’t recommend her highly enough! In fact, I’m already signed up for another workshop in Puerto Rico and NYC with her!”  –  Ann Jessup
