Alexandria Huff takes dramatic portraits with a painterly aesthetic in a studio setting or on location. Her specialty is children and the elderly. She shoots in a painterly, chiaroscuro (Italian for "light-dark") style with an emphasis on the face. Expressions and posing are in a traditional, somber style – a nod to timeless portraits of the past. An Alexandria Huff chiaroscuro is more than a portrait, it is an heirloom.
