For all of life's raw and





For the

Visual Storytellers


Sacramento Portrait Photographer

Life is a timeline of milestones. Sometimes you might feel like you’re just going through the motions, never stopping to smell the roses. We are of the mindset that if your life was a film, any moment we choose to pause is something worth capturing. Kids are always growing. Teeth fall out, and the notches on the doorframe get taller. Family photos are your rewind button! Are you expecting? Capture the beauty of pregnancy (it’ll seem more magical in hindsight, I promise). Not only those but everything in between–from business branding to live births. Arcade visits to bungee jumping.


*cue movie announcer voice*
In a world...where there are billions of people... JUST KIDDING. We won't go too cheesy on you but hear us out.

Enter Character number 1: You.
You are somewhere incredibly important in your life. Whether that be getting married, having children, celebrating a graduation, 
Taking a break, focusing on you, you name it. As we age our memories start to fade. Instead of these days just being stories to tell, Let them be seen, 

Enter Character number 2: Us.
We are not the type of storytellers that will meet you on the day of your session, snap a few photos, say cheese...and leave. 
We want to learn about you! The important part is capturing your personality, your love, the tantrums, the realness of your life.
We will select a location that we feel best suits your story. Then its time to venture and explore! Most importantly have an amazing time. Don't worry....YOU ARE NOT TOO AWKWARD. We got you.

This comfortability, and raw unfiltered emotion and stories will allow us to tell your story as it deserves. This is life is crazy and we only have one. Live life to the fullest..

two art forms, one mission

Hi, I'm Lexi


I am newlyish into my 30's, have two kiddos, a poodle, two cats and a husband. I am a USAF veteran of 11 years and prior medic! I listen to music that might scare you, I drink entirely too much caffeine, and I wish Halloween were all year round. When I first started photography, It was a hobby to bring me out of the house. Now, It is something that I am most passionate about. We capture weddings, portraits, concerts, commercial, and everything in between. Every story needs to be told.

As seen in...


"Alexis took our family photos and we had an incredible experience with her. I really liked that she helps with styling, a custom music play list and takes the time to understand what you're looking for. She was a lot of fun to work with and we felt very comfortable during the entire photo session. She is super fun and relaxed, which helps the session feel calm and easy. We can't wait to take more family photos with her!"

"Alexis is insanely talented. When I came across her website randomly....I knew I had to have pics done by her (even though...I didn't have a special occasion....and even though my husband and I both hate taking pictures). I just had to have her work hanging on my wall. She is AMAZING. Her pictures speak for themselves. She is a one of a kind photographer...making one of a kind art for people. She was so fun and easy to work with. I could have stayed all day taking pics with her. highly highly highly recommend!!"

"We had the best experience working with Alexis. She was professional yet fun and enjoyable to be with. It didn't feel stressful like photoshoots normally do, I felt like I was hanging out with a friend. She is so talented and we were blown away by our pictures when we got them back. Would definitely recommend to all my friends!"

Kaylah V..

"I cannot say enough wonderful things about our experience with Lexi & As the Crow Flies. We were fortunate enough to get in on their first Fall Mini Session here in our area & Lexi's talent truly speaks for itself. In 10 minutes she managed to capture the true essence of our little family & now we have so many beautiful memories to cherish for years to come. We will certainly be utilizing their talent for future photo needs & I will be recommending them to everyone I know because they are that good."

 Mati T..

"WOW! Ever since I first came across As the crow Flies, I was dying to book a session, and I was blown away by how stunning our pictures turned out! Alexis is incredibly talented and did an amazing job at coaching us on our poses to get the best shots possible. Getting these photos taken was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!"

 Tiffany M..

"Words cannot express how much I love our fall session photos! I have already booked another full session! Lexi was so kind, fun, and she captured the best photos of our squirmy 1 year old who is also in a stranger danger stage at the moment. She made us feel relaxed in front of the camera which is not easy to do. Not only did she get photos with all of us smiling at the camera, she also captured moments and glances between us that I will cherish forever. I cannot wait for our next session."
