It took the birth of her first child for Alicia Johnson to recognize her passion for photography, as she whiled away her spare time snapping shots of her baby. This newfound hobby triggered the artistic impulses she’d felt her whole life, which have since manifested into a professional photography career spanning the last 16 years. Alicia still cherishes the opportunity to snap pictures of newborns—her favorite subjects—as well as children, families, and high-school seniors. Her calming manner puts infants and adults alike at ease as she harnesses natural light and flattering angles to compose each frame. Alicia’s loft studio in Naperville, located inside the historic Fifth Avenue station, provides chic backdrops and props while on-location shoots let subjects pose against an organic background or favorite tropical-themed screensaver. Alicia’s Photography also offers editing services, as well as traditional prints and images grafted onto canvases, jewelry, iPhone cases, and electronic mediums such as website galleries and DVDs.
