Welcome to Violet River Photography!  I am Alexis, the main photographer at Violet River, and I would love to capture your next event or portrait session!

I haveAlexis Kaniewski loved photography ever since I was a child.  I always thought capturing moments was an essential thing to do, and I couldn’t wait to get back the prints after a celebration or family outing.  Even now, I love looking at photos to keep my favorite memories fresh in my mind.

My passion allows me to see the beauty in everyone and everything. I believe everyone has something special about them, even if they can’t see it for themselves.  Capturing human emotion is what brings photographs to life. My goal is to create those keepsakes that make you remember those moments forever.

Besides my love of photography, I help run a small Website Development and Online Marketing company with my husband, Jose. We started Avenue Web Media back in 2008, and we love working with all types of businesses. Jose handles the complex, technical wizardry, and I handle the creative side. We decided to add photography to our list of services, and I’m so glad we did, because that’s when I started Violet River Photography! I am my most happiest when I get to use my artistic side.

I really enjoy all kinds of photography, so I am happy to provide any kind of portrait session, from Boudoir, Maternity, Newborn, Head shots, as well as any kind of Events where you need both candid and posed shots.

My hobbies include nature hikes, gardening, cooking and traveling.  I’m determined to find time to go back to painting, and finally learning the guitar after years of wanting to! Once I get that down, I’m hoping to couple that with my other not-so-secret passion of singing, and get to an open mic night.

I love meeting new people, and I can’t wait to meet you! Contact me today to get in touch for your portrait session or event.
