Hi! I’m Lexie! I was born and raised in Central Florida where I spent my days enjoying wonderful things like sunshine, warm weather and Mickey Mouse. I received my Bachelor’s degree from Florida State University in Flute Performance. That’s where I met and fell in love with my husband, Adam. We moved to the Pacific Northwest for 12.5 years, before Adam’s job recently offered him a position in North Charleston, SC. We are happy to be back in the land of sun and 90 degree weather and looking forward to lowcountry living!
I got the photography bug from my dad. He was always taking pictures while my brother and I were growing up. Unfortunately, since he was the one behind the camera, he was so very rarely IN photos. Sadly, my dad passed away when I was 14. A few years ago, I realized that although I have many wonderful memories, I have only a handful of snapshots of us together. It made me realize, even more, how important photographs are – a visual reminder of our pasts.
Alexis Merritt Photography opened in 2010. I love capturing the love and connection that exists in families; siblings who love each other, in spite of the chokehold from big brother; the look in Mom’s eyes, as she watches her husband playing with their toddler; the absolute newness of a 6 day old baby….the list goes on! My hope after your session with me is that you walk away with a smile on your face, the laughter from your children still ringing in your ears.
In my other life, I am also a professional flutist. I played with a flute choir in Seattle, Circle of Flutes, and we released a CD together in 2014. My husband and I are avid Florida State Seminoles fans, and spend most of our free time finding ways to tire out our energetic German Shepherd mix, Bo.
