Lead Photographer / Owner
My name is Azalea James and I am the lead photographer/videographer and the owner of Azalea Photography.
Growing up in the Chicago Suburbs, my love for art started at an early age. From the age of 5 I was known as the “artist” by my fellow classmates in school. Though I was motivated by the compliments given by others, I was ultimately driven by the beauty I tried to recreate with my pencils and paints for every art project I undertook.
When I purchased my first camera, it was only to take “happy snaps” and I had no real aspirations to do anything more with it. But with every picture I captured, I began to fall in love with light and the amazing perspectives and compositions that my simple point-and-shoot camera could create. I quickly became hooked and immersed myself into the world of photography.
