Alexandra focuses her work on redheads and individuals with freckles, saying that she is, “really addicted to their unique beauty.” She says that this passion “came from my family and friends, so this love to gingers used to be a part of my life from the very beginning.” She began her ongoing project “Redheads’ Stories” a couple of years back and you can see more of her project on her Instagram page.
Alexandra prefers to work almost exclusively with natural light. In addition, she states that most of the models are natural-without makeup and that all of the animals she incorporates into her work are real and not Photoshopped.
