Fully Alive Events was born as Tracy saw a need for people to make the process or planning events simpler & less stressful. With hundreds of weddings under her belt Tracy + her partner Nicole had the skills to work together & help our clients achieve everything they needed! This offering is exclusive to photography clients only. We do not offer full wedding planning services - we have established relationships with several planners we work with a lot and love- so if our small offerings don't fit out clients needs we have fantastic referrals!
(Originally Named "Finding Joy Consulting") This company was built out of the need of all the job losses due to the pandemic. Tracy saw a need to help people start their entrepreneurial journey or take it to the next level to not only survive during the crisis but to thrive! Tracy offers creative offerings from website design, business cards, brand kits, social media management to more practical offerings like consulting & coaching, to systems, workshops & courses.
The very foundation of the agency began when Tracy founded Fully Alive ™ Photography after graduating Illinois State University with an art degree focused in film photography. She created this company to help people feel empowered, confident, joyful, beautiful & alive through an entire photography experience not just a photoshoot! Tracy photographs all walks of life- from weddings, events, boudoir, kids, engagements, maternity, newborns, pets, families, and tons of brands. With thousands of clients under her belt Tracy always over-delivers an amazing experience.
Hello! I’m Tracy Ann
& I am the owner & founder of
"The Fully Alive Agency"
The Agency Is Comprised Of
-Fully Alive Photography
-Fully Alive Creative
-Fully Alive Events
I love to empower people by cutting out the confusion and giving clarity to anyone wanting to launch, grow or understand their small business.
I am a rural Illinois born girl with a southwest heart, and I must confess I am a complete nerd about Taylor Swift, Harry Potter, early mornings, sparkly boots, adorable kittens, straight up decaf espresso, adventure, and tacos. I am a mother, wife, entrepreneur, and educator.
Izzy is an ASU grad in digital marketing & fashion. She joined the Fully Alive team in 2021. She can be found on most shoots creating micro video content & carrying around my gear! She can also be found in the office culling photos & other office work. She also often volunteers as a fill in model whenever needed too!
MATEO: Junior Assistant
My 11 year old son is an employee! He can be found on family photoshoots helping kids smile and creating reels content. He can also be founding sorting paperwork, bouncing creative ideas off me and other little but needed tasks around the office a few hours a week.
NICOLE: Lead Planner For Fully Alive Events
Nicole is my partner in crime for our events business! Nicole started working for my photography company as an assistant in 2020 but in 2022 came on board as more of a partner role with Fully Alive Events! With a background of over a decade in the wedding industry she's on point for anything wedding & party planning!
TRIANNA: Part Time Assistant
Trianna joined our team in the spring of 2023! Trianna is an experienced model and she can often be found on set helping with posing or even modeling for us! She also does plenty of culling! (meaning she and Izzy see your images before I do if you book a photography package!)
Working with me is an entire experience. I am here for time management, work boundaries, problem solving, workflows, and so much more.
