Floral Thoughts Photography

Hi, I’m Jordan; I am a wife, a mom, a believer, a flower lover, a cappuccino and wine drinker, an Iowa transplant (by way of St. Louis, Missouri), and a southern girl at heart. I understand the important, and personal, decision it is to find someone to capture your family in a way that is authentically you.

As a photographer, I strive to connect with each family I work with on a personal level, so that authentic moments can organically happen and I can capture you and your family being true to you! I am thankful for the possibility to have the opportunity to work with you!

Treasured Moments

I think everyone’s story helps shape them into the person they become but often times it also explains why they have a passion and love for something like they do!

My parents both passed away when I was pretty young. I was 12 and 15 to be exact. We didn’t have a single family photo of us 5 and didn’t even realize it until my dad passed away. It sucked. It still sucks.  3 years later my mom was diagnosed with terminal cancer, I became pretty “camera happy” during those events and I’m almost certain I always had one with me. I was constantly trying to “freeze time,” especially when it came to my mom. I wanted as many moments captured as possible, knowing one day, it’s all I’d have left.

Fast forward and I chose to start my own business.  I wanted to offer people something I wish I’d have had more of! Time frozen and moments captured. As time went on, I found I had favorites. I love boudoir because we live in a world that tells us what we should be, what we should look like, what we should act like etc. We’re not a checklist, nor are we ingredients in a box. Boudoir photography allows me to show you YOU through another set of eyes. It’s incredible!

Hannah White Photography

I am a maternity, newborn, and family photographer based in Cedar Rapids and have been photographing life’s most precious moments for over a decade. As a mom, photography is my way to remember each stage of my son’s life – the dimples in his smile, his windblown hair, and how easily his hand fits in mine.

I approach photography with clients, in the same way, helping chronicle the little details that captivate you daily, yet are so fleeting and easily forgotten.

Owner of Cedar Rapids Moms, Alyssa, grew up near Backbone State Park, and moved to Cedar Rapids over 10 years ago. Married to her best friend, Kevin;  mama to Jack, Liv, and Theo; and dog mama to Stella and Milo, life is full of chaos, busy schedules, and lots of traveling. Her Type A personality is evident through her color-coded Google Calendar and her never-ending lists. When she's not stepping on Legos, hair barrettes, or chasing the kids, you can find her cheering on the Steelers or Hawkeyes, hosting friends and family, spending time in the kitchen, or planning her next vacation.
