My name is Allison, but you can call me Ally! Thanks for stopping by, in 2022 I celebrated my 10th work-iversary, I have been a photographer since 2012 located in Georgetown (Halton Hills) Ontario. Until recently (thanks 2020 lol) I also photographed weddings for dozens of sweet couples who I still get to see as their families are growing... time sure flies!
Welcome to my world and everything I love about it, I'm so glad you're here...
portrait + brand photographer
They are simply the reason I do anything and everything.
if you think my hands are full you should see my heart.
I love taking pictures. I love working with sweet families. I get a kick out of looking through my lens, cutting out the noise and focusing in on what is important, special, unique about your family - probably things you don't even notice because you are in the THICK of this whole parenthood thing... I love striking gold in the middle of a shoot (and I will always be excited to tell you that moment!). I love wandering and following and seeing what you don't. I am addicted to the moment when you see your proofs for the first time, I love hearing you say "omg!... I can't believe you got that shot! ...when did you take that!?" lol. I love helping you pick your favs and finding creative ways for you to show off your gorgeous humans around your home. I am humbled by your sweet thank you messages and grateful for EVERY single time you think to refer people to me. I always love keeping in touch and seeing you again when everyone's grown up just a little bit more. I would love to get to know you too!
I am a sap. I cry at old pictures… and new ones, weddings, movies, dog rescue tiktok, commercials, quotes, cards, happy news, sad news, good-byes and seeing random acts of kindness. Basically I should be wearing a fanny pack with tissues at all times #waterproofmascaraforthewin
Peanut butter & chocolate. Chocolate & peanut butter. Enough said.
Can you really have too many coffee mugs? How 'bout cardigans? (asking for a friend...)
I love LOVE, especially that kind when GOOD humans show up in your life and never leave your side.
My middle name is HOPE. My mum named me that because she says “everyone needs a little hope in the world”, mums are always right.
I ADORE children. I always wanted wanted 4 kids and together we have 5, SO I got extra lucky there ;)
I lose my keys at least twice a week #thestruggleisreal.
Favourite warm bevy: chai tea latte, favourite cold bevy: Timmy's ice capp.
The cottage is my favourite place on earth, I’m so grateful when we can unplug a little and live simply.
I spoke Chinese until I was about 5, sadly I can barely remember counting to 10 and "grapes".
Pinterest is the way I know I am a hoarder at my core (btw follow me!).
Checklists make me happy.
You can always fit at least 11 more things in a full dirty dishwasher.
I really want to unknowingly find myself in the middle of a flashmob someday - invite me to one?
I am SO grateful to have an awesome business that let's me be creative and gives me purpose in giving something to others. I would be nothing without the love of my kids motivate me, my friends and family to believe in me, my ah-mazing clients who allow me to do what I love & support my family, and last but never least, my wonderful hubby for holding my hand no-matter-what while I try to make it ALL work somehow... xx
Did I mention chocolate and peanut butter? ;)
