I’m Allison or, as most of my friends call me, Allie. I am a mother to two beautiful daughters- my oldest is a competition cheerleader, and my youngest wants to be just like her big sister- they are 8 years apart but have the sweetest bond. My children are my world, my heart and my soul. I am also happily married to my best friend.
I would describe myself as an artist and dreamer who is always looking for ways to feed my creative soul. I believe that life is better with lots of laughter. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and children, decorating my home, and listening to indie music. I also love to visit thrift stores and vintage markets. I am obsessed with anything floral and flowy, Mexican food (well, really all food- ha ha), and Chai tea lattes with coconut milk. Sometimes at the end of the day, I love to unwind with a glass of buttery chardonnay or a delicious, locally-brewed IPA.
Though I have always had an interest in the arts and have always enjoyed taking photos of my children, my journey in professional photography truly began in 2010 when I purchased my first DSLR. I immersed myself in learning, taking photos whenever I could. I quickly realized this was my passion and soon after, I formed a partnership with another photographer in Colorado. For almost 3 years I specialized in wedding and portrait photography.
However, life had other ideas for my family, and in 2013 my husband’s job landed us here in the South in Woodstock, Georgia where I started my own business, focusing on portraits. I have grown so much as a photographer since then; these new surroundings have truly inspired me both personally and creatively. I am continually educating myself on the latest techniques and trends in order to provide my clients with gorgeous images.
To me, there are few things more exciting than the perfect stream of golden light peeking through some trees. My happy place is behind my camera, capturing the individual beauty and loving connections that are “you”. My photography style is a mix of elegance and whimsy, and I have a passion for freezing magical moments in time. My ultimate goal is to provide each and every client with collection of fashion-forward, creative portraits and emotional lifestyle moments that encompass love, laughter, and all the little nuances in between. Love is my inspiration, a camera is my paintbrush… life is art.
I’d love to chat with you more about your photography needs. Thank you for taking the time to read!
