Hello! I’m Aleesha Howe, and I am from Downingtown, Pennsylvania! I grew up in a family with 6 kids (4 boys, 2 girls), a farm full of animals and two super, hard working parents!I started Aleesha Nicole Photography when I was just 18 years old. After spending some time working for other people, I was quickly disappointed with how disconnected they were. To me, the best photography is when you can tap into the emotion, and have real connection between the photographer and the one in the photo. So, I decided to step out on my own, take on photography full time and put the clients first. I needed to learn a lot fast, so I mentored under some of greatest photographers in the industry. 5 years later, lots of work, and time spent, we are here! Photography is so near and dear to my heart, it’s a way to capture moments that would otherwise vanish! Life is ever changing and always moving. I found that what moves me is to be able to stop time for a second and give people something to hold on to forever. Seeing the look on a newly engaged couple’s faces; the sweet interactions between mom, dad and their children; the glow on a senior’s face as they are approaching their last year of school; all those moments are such milestones in life! I love being there for those times hearing stories later about how special those photos were to people.
