Alexa, BASIS Flagstaff, Class Of 2023 – Senior Photos With Two Star Subjects: One Human, One Canine

I couldn’t stop laughing. Next to me, I could hear Corey, Alexa’s mom, trying in vein to suppress giggles, too. Alexa was seated next to the beloved Rose, their fluffy white family dog. Rose was understandably entertained by the many compelling attractions that surrounded us; birds, laughing kids in the distance, etc.

So, my prompt to Alexa was “Whichever direction Rose is looking, mirror her and look there too.” She did this with aplomb and was utterly convincing in her portrayal of casualness. The sweetest thing was when Rose looked right at Alexa and they briefly smiled at each other. It was touching and hilarious at the same time.


I’ve known Corey for several years but this chance to get to know Alexa was really appreciated. Here’s what I’ve learned so far: she’s humble, brilliant, graceful, kind and has this particularly remarkable mix of seemingly contradicting qualities; She manages to pull off being supremely cool with also being totally willing to be goofy. I had so much fun on the gorgeous fall day that her senior portrait session was graced with. She and Rose can be my star subjects anytime.
