About Me

alzbetaI am Alzbeta Volk  and I am a photographer based in Lakewood, Colorado.

A little about me? That is the point here, after all. I am married, and my husband and I revel in the fact that we both have a little bit of “nerd” in us. He is a web manager, and we happily got thrown together a lot in our college days when he was the online editor of the paper and I was the photo editor. We went to a small Catholic college situated on the bluffs of the Missouri River in Kansas, and our three girls keep us on our toes with the joy, laughter, and, well, destruction they bring to our lives. I am so grateful for them.

I love reading, a good British show (Call the Midwife, anyone?), rainy days, and homemade whipped cream.

My interest in photography started in grade school, but it really kicked off in college when I studied for and received degrees in Mass Communications and Art, both emphasizing photography. I feel like getting a little experience on each side of the spectrum helped me to both watch for those photojournalistic moments as well as those that are just pure beauty. I strive to capture authentic moments: the joy of the every day, of this moment, in your lives. Some of my obsession with capturing “the moment” comes from my terrible (and I mean terrible) memory. It’s such a joy to look back on photos and have them trigger memories that would otherwise be lost in the dusty recesses of my mind. I can’t wait to hear from you and give you something beautifully tangible from your life at this time.
