Round Rock Texas Premier Lifestyle Photographer-Rowald Wedding-06383Round Rock Texas Premier Lifestyle Photographer-Rowald Wedding-06383 SHORT BIO: My name is Alicia Donovan, Born in New Castle, PA and raised in New Bedford, PA. a child of four. While my brothers joined sports, I developed a great appreciation of nature and my beautiful country surroundings. Aspiring to be a photo journalist, I picked up a camera at a young age and shot everything I could. As often happens, events lead us in directions we did not intend to go, and rather than pursuing my photography, I instead moved forward with a career in insurance and finance that lasted for most of my adult life.

But life is funny and has a way of bringing us full circle, back in the direction we were meant to go. Having an amazing supportive husband, I have been able to concentrate on the career I was meant for, being a profession photographer. It was five years ago, I picked up a camera again and felt that deep intense need to further myself and develop my skills and create stories through my lens. Every time I pick up the camera, my first thought is "How can I tell this story, so that in the future, anyone that looks at these images will be able to feel the love, humor or loss that was present in the memories I am capturing?" I feel like that is my job. My biggest accomplishment is when I am able to see one of my clients emotional response to the memories I have captured for them. I love laughing and crying and sharing those memories with all of you. You mean the world to me.

I firmly believe that if you are going to be a professional, you should have the skills that come with the title. I started my skills off years ago by attending Austin Community College for Business Administration and Management so that I could efficiently serve my clientele, after coming back to the world of photography I have recently signed up to complete my degree in the Art field. I also attended and completed all classes offered at Austin School of Photography as well as took every opportunity to take numerous classes and workshops offered at Precision Camera and learned a lot of my valuable skills with my long time mentor and friend Alex Labry, who in his career has documented the Democratic Presidents as well as our local Texas House of Representatives from 1996-2003 and so much more.

In the five years that I have been devoting my sweat and tears into building my professional photography business, I have shared in memories that will stay with me forever, the birth of beautiful babies, the beginnings of many love stories, children's milestones and graduations. I have spent my vacations capturing some of the most beautiful natural spaces that our United States has to offer in our national parks and finally became a published photo journalist. Published in Not In Door Magazine and in the Houston Press. Instruction being another love of mine, I also mentor new photographers and offer in the field mentor classes as well as workshops in local art installations. I hope this has giving you a short glimpse into who I am and that in choosing Moments Enshrined Photography you did not just choose a photographer, you chose a story teller that can't wait capture your memories and help you tell your story!
