My name is Arali West (pronounced r – a – lEE) and I’m a Nicaraguan native residing in Southern California. I take pleasure in simple things like drinking coffee, listening to music, being in nature or cooking a great meal. I find enjoyment out of self-expression through art, music, writing and more.

I have 8+ years experience in graphic designer and photography. With a degree in Communications and Graphic Design, I find joy in all things creative - I will gladly discuss with you typography, depth of field and how to correctly pronounce “GIF”.

Besides photography and graphic design, I’m very active in church functions & an advocate for healthy living. Christ is at the top of my priorities! Amongst all these things, I always find time for the love of my life, my husband Jonathan, my family and close friends. Learn More →

I’m always excited to share work and document daily life, but enough about me! Drop a line or email to say hello. You can also check out my blog entries for recent work.
