My name is Allison, but you can call me Ally! Thanks for stopping by, I have been a photographer since 2012 based in Georgetown, Ontario (Halton Hills) but happy to work with families across the GTA. I love working with people who adore something - their family, their work, things they create, their life milestones, their best friends, brightest days and even their most loyal furry friends! If you have something that means the world to you then I want to help you capture it in a photograph that will last forever.

 

Welcome to my world and everything I love about it, I'm so glad you're here...

hey there!

They are simply the reason I do anything and everything.

if you think my hands are full you should see my heart.

my work

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!

our floofer

Meet our Rosco the Cockapoo. The kids say I have way more pictures of him on my phone than I do of them... they could be onto something lol. But just look at that face!

random facts

  • I am a sap. I cry at old pictures… and new ones, weddings, movies, every episode of Queer Eye, dog rescue Tiktok, commercials, quotes, cards, happy news, sad news, good-byes and any random act 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 passed the same middle name down to my baby girl for the very same reason. 

  • I ADORE children. The only thing I ever aspired to be in life was a mum. I always wanted 4 kids and together we have 5, SO I got extra lucky there ;)

  • I have 341 saves in my "MakeForDinnerTok" collection, I've made 7 of them, 336 to go!

  • I lose my keys at least twice a week #airtagsforthewin.

  • Favourite warm bevy: Silvercreek chai tea latte. Favourite cold bevy: Icecapp.

  • The cottage is my favourite place on earth (the prep and drive is worth it when we get there), I’m so grateful when we can unplug a little and live simply. As our kids' lives are growing in a million directions it is the one place that will keep pulling us together.

  • I spoke Chinese until I was about 4, sadly I can barely remember counting to 10.

  • Pinterest is the way I know I am a hoarder at my core, if only I could make10% of what I pin actually happen!

  • Checklists make me happy. If it's not on the list (or in the calendar), it's not happening.

  • You can always fit at least 11 more things in a full dirty dishwasher - yes you can.

  • I really want to unknowingly find myself in the middle of a flashmob someday.

  • After all these years doing work I love, I realize that there has been a thread to connect all of it - to make sure women exist in photos. To not just be the documentors but to be documented themselves. Whether capturing their unique beauty, their love and connection with their families, the things they create, the milestones they accomplish and the incredible, INSPIRING work they do. If anything I have done has contributed even just one ounce to someone's self confidence, my hope is that it only explodes from there.

  • I am SO grateful to have built this rewarding business that lets me be creative and gives me purpose in giving something that makes people happy. I would be nothing without the love of my kids to motivate me, my mum's everlasting, unconditional love shining down on 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, the love of my life, my wonderful husband, for holding my hand no-matter-what while I try to make it ALL work somehow... xx

  • Did I mention chocolate and peanut butter? ;)

my charities

I've been a proud supporter of My Sister's Pink Pajama Party since 2010, supporting The Weekend to End Women's Cancers. These amazing ladies and amazing event are truly inspirational! I also love supporting various fundraisers, and events thoughout the year including the Georgetown Hospital Foundation, Georgetown Car Rally, Tristen Silva and the Jeffrey Fleeton Memorial Tournament, schools & sport teams.

the days are long but the years are short
