ALEKS GAJDECZKA

Documentary, Commercial, & Family Photographer

I am an award-winning, Austin-based photographer specializing in day-in-the-life documentary family photography.

I am drawn to the exploration of modern childhood in the tech-free, natural world.

My work has been awarded by the international Documentary Family Awards in 2017, 2018, and 2019, and displayed in juried shows at the Storytellers Photo Conference 2019 DFA Exhibit and the Texas Photographic Society’s 2019 Members Show.

I love adventure, I’m up for travel, and I photograph limited Day in the Life family sessions each year (now booking 2020).

 

Before becoming a photographer, I had been a dog trainer,

a server at the Outback Steakhouse,

and a POLICY ANALYST.

I was born in WARSAW, POLAND

and moved to the US with my family under POLITICAL ASYLUM.

I ABSOLUTELY HATE BOWLING.

I love whiskey, beer, and Coconut LaCroix.

SO SUE ME.

I’m addicted to the oxford comma

but my superpower is not sweating the small stuff.

My happiest places have

MORE TREES THAN PEOPLE.

I have the best dog in the world

A PIT BULL NAMED DOODLEBUG.

I am afraid of dragonflies but

LOVE BEES AND SPIDERS.
