blog

Many photographers specialize in only one or two genres -- headshots and personal branding, children and families, boudoir, weddings and engagements, architecture, or event photography. I find that doing (almost) all of it keeps my days exciting and my eyes and mind sharp. I love too many people, things, and styles to limit myself to just a couple of categories, and so in my blog and portfolio you're going to find a lot of diversity. Follow along and explore with me.

Philadelphia Model Photography

This gorgeous model just signed on with a modeling agency, and needed to work with a photographer to create some beautiful images to share with potential clients. I just moved into my new studio, and needed to test my lighting and new couch. It was a match made in heaven, and we had such a fantastic day shooting together. 

Maternity Portrait Sessions

Sometimes someone walks through your studio door and you get giddy knowing how beautiful their photos are going to turn out. This beautiful couple is expecting their first child, and we had an amazing time together creating these gorgeous images in my studio.

Child Actress Headshots

These two young stage actresses came in with their moms for updated headshots. We laughed, we played, and we created some great new images, plus a few of the two friends together. Actors, comedians, and performers (and business owners) are in good hands here at Aliza Schlabach Photography.

Mother & Baby

I've been wanting to shoot a Vanity Fair style mother & baby portrait session for awhile, and was so happy when this mama came to me sharing my vision. Heirloom portraiture with these two gorgeous gals -- such a treat!

Boudoir & Nudes

A hair & makeup artist, three models, and four photographers equaled an incredible day of boudoir & nude photography. What a fantastic treat it was to get together with all of these amazing women to create such gorgeous imagery. Here is just a sampling of my creations from the day... more stunning photographs to come.

High School Senior Session in Ardmore

This high school senior is graduating from The Baldwin School, so we set out to take some awesome shots around downtown Ardmore. Hair and makeup was provided by my fabulous artist Heather Vellner, and I made the custom tulle skirt in her school colors. She seemed so reserved during the consult with mom, but once I had her to myself and we put that skirt on, she was all smiles and personality. Senior sessions are a blast!

High Fashion Gel Shoot

After some inspiration and education from world renowned photographer Jake Hicks, I got together with my amazing model, hair, and makeup artist Heather Vellner for a fun experimental photography shoot playing with lights and colored gels. We had such a good time, and I just love the images we ended up creating. I would be thrilled if I could get some commercial fashion work down this vein, or even incorporate it into my heirloom portrait sessions.  

Guest Post: Rose

"I came to Aliza right before I officially launched my communications consultancy. I wanted a fresh photo to use for my business website and social media accounts. I was searching for a photographer who could capture the polished, but relaxed style of my personal brand. 

When I came across Aliza’s portfolio, I was drawn to her flattering headshot poses and use of light. I was captivated by the warmth and energy that came through her photographs. Her point of view is right in the sweet spot of natural, but professional; a difficult aesthetic to achieve. 

Aliza made the process enjoyable and convenient. Rather than coordinating hair and makeup on my own, Aliza scheduled services for me in her studio space. During the session, Aliza had a relaxed, but efficient approach. There was plenty of time during the session to change wardrobe, try different poses and swap out backdrops.  

I’ve coordinated dozens of photoshoots over the course of my career and can say that my experience with Aliza was one of the best. The most difficult part of the process was narrowing down the proofs and selecting only a couple of photos. 

When I launched my website, I received several compliments on my headshot. It was certainly a flattering experience; family, friends and colleagues went out of their way to tell me how much they liked the photo. 

A few months later, I asked Aliza to take a family photo for our holiday card. Despite a rambunctious puppy and slightly stress out husband, Aliza captured a sweet, fun photo of us. 

It’s been a blessing meeting Aliza and working with her. I look forward to our next session."
