AKeiganPhoto | Los Angeles and Ventura County Headshot and Portrait Photographer bio picture
  • Welcome to the AKeiganPhoto BlogSite!

    I am a Thousand Oaks-based custom portrait photographer specializing in actor headshots, lifestyle and senior portraits. “Alej” is pronounced “Alex.” There’s no good explanation, so don’t expect one. ☺

    My photographic style takes full advantage of beautiful light from the sun and is described by viewers as earthy, colorful, nostalgic and whimsical. I love to capture the beauty and reality of my subjects, and my goal is to create personality-infused images that excite you!

    Aside from photography, I enjoy spending time with my two boys (one toddler, one infant!), hiking and running, providing feedback for my husband's newfound gourmet cooking hobby, delighting in sips of a variety of adult beverages, reading, and exploring the beautiful and quirky state of California.

    All things AKeiganPhoto can be found somewhere on this combined blog + website. many photos you see are available for commercial licensing or for purchase as wall art.

CWK | Los Angeles Children’s Photographer


Two of my favorite things in one frame – Baby Boy #1 (at almost 16 months old) and the Jacaranda tree. C’s favorite color has been purple since he was old enough to show a preference, which adds to the reasons why these are some of my absolute favorite photos.

HB | Los Angeles Female Actor Headshots


♥ this lady! A mom to a 2 year old, a fantastically talented and “working” actress, a make-your-own work kinda gal – we shot this LA-based actress in Thousand Oaks with the intent to fill in some missing looks. She wanted something a little lighter and brighter and also something specifically for her very own (and now very […]
