Hi! I'm Aliza Schlabach.
I am a photographer serving the Main Line and Greater Philadelphia Area, shooting on location and in my Ardmore studio. Studio portraiture makes up the majority of my business, including contemporary glamour (think magazine style like you'd see in Vanity Fair), headshots and personal branding, boudoir, maternity, kids, and family. When the weather is pretty, I also love getting my families and kids outdoors to shoot in Haverford College, Appleford Estate, and around downtown Ardmore.
I absolutely LOVE that photography combines three distinct skills and passions of mine: art, technical skill, and working with people.
Making images that pop off the page or screen makes me giddy. I shoot for eyes filled with light and expression and faces that are true to the person inside. I seek to capture images that stand out, but are honest, alive, and intriguing.
I'm a mom to an adorable 9 year old girl and a rambunctious 12 year old boy. I love them to pieces and we spend a lot of time together. My husband Kevin is pretty great too.
When I'm not with the family, behind my camera, or editing photos on my laptop, I try to spend as much time as possible with my other passions: partner dancing (blues & fusion), music, travel, tending to my vegetable garden, great food, and my amazing friends. It's a good life and I'm trying to soak up every minute of it.
I'm based in Ardmore, Pennsylvania and have a studio right on Lancaster Ave. I will also travel to a location of your choice throughout the Main Line, Philadelphia, Delaware County, Montgomery Country, and Chester County.
So... how do you say your name?
People sometimes worry about how to pronounce my name.
Half the time they say it correctly -- "uh-LEE-zuh"
Half the time they say the incorrect "uh-LYE-zuh".
And then there's the last name.
I should have kept my maiden name. *sighs*
But seriously, don't worry if you get it wrong - I'm used to it. :-)
