Welcome to Cloose Photography.
My name is Alicia and I am co-owner of Creative Pear Graphic Design. Founded in 2008, we started out specializing in logo design, print and web design. In 2012 I decided to add a photography branch to our company and I absolutely love it! Photography has turned into a true passion for me. I love the creativity, opportunities, and people it has brought into my life.
I am an on-location portrait photographer in the Jamestown, ND area, and also the Bagley, MN area. I specialize in portraiture of high school seniors, families and weddings.
I would describe my photography as VIBRANT. I love bold colors, bright tones, natural posing and lighting while using nature as my backdrop. Give me a field of tall grass and flowers, an old barn, brick buildings and I'm a happy girl! I want the focus to be YOU - this moment in your life is special - that's why you contact a photographer, to document this beautiful moment in time and I'm grateful for all my clients!
I grew up, found love and started my family in Bagley, MN, so it is dear to my heart - but we recently moved to Jamestown, ND for my husband's job. I still get to Bagley often and love connecting with photography clients when we head that way to visit family. We have a beautiful family farm with many acres near Shevlin, MN. The backdrops are constantly changing with the seasons and I really enjoy meeting my clients there for shoots. Not sure where you want to take your photos? The farm is always an option.
I look forward to meeting new people in the Jamestown, ND community! We have lived here for several years now and with my two little girls getting older, I'm ready to take my business to the next level. I love the rolling hills, many beautiful parks and kind people here. I can't wait to meet YOU!
“Alicia did an amazing job on our wedding photos! They turned out beautiful!”

“We've had Alicia take our family pictures 4 years in a row and couldn't be happier! Our pictures always look amazing and she is incredibly patient with our littles.”
“Alicia has taken our family photos 5 times and every time we get our pictures back I am blown away. When our girls were toddlers and didn't want their pictures taken she still was able to get amazing photos even when I thought it would be impossible to get any to turn out. We love working with her and are looking forward to having her capture more memories for us. (June 2021)”
