Carson & Watson! Montgomery, Alabama Child Photographer

3 things:

1.  Heeeeellllooooo best backyard ever!   When Amye came to me wanting Fall pics, I knew just the spot.  We had recently visited their home for Carson’s 7th birthday party.   I saw her backyard and I was all, “come to mama!”  These have inspired to me to offer back yard sessions.  How personal, how fun and comforting for the kids…did I say, “how fun?”

2.  These are two of the sweetest kids.  I would adopt them, but I think their mama and daddy might come after me. 😉

3.  You know I love it when doggies make appearances in my photos.  Yep, I do, and theirs just romped around with us in the yard the whole time!   Enjoy!!

P.S.  Holla if you ever “spidered” on a swing as a kid!


Amye - I am so in love with these photos, Allison! A thousand thanks!!


Reena - first off: what adorable kids! oh my! and secondly: that is their backyard?! awesome. What a great session Allison. I love the variety and expressions you captured.

Samantha Bitton - What an awesome backyard! Super cute and fun!!

Tami - These are lovely. Every single one of them.

Sally Bryan Molhoek - totally awesome as always! love that red bow.

Kathryn Hightower Hartman - Amye what photogenic kids. Love your backyard.


The Layson Family! Montgomery, Alabama Family Photographer

3 things:

1.  This was such a cute family!  Layson baby number two is on the way and I know that CG will be a great big sister!

2.  They came ready with a few family heirlooms and we put them to good use.  I loved CG’s boots.  She did too, which was, of course, adorable!  🙂

2.   If you haven’t heard a certain 2 year old say, “nandy,” when she wants candy, you are missing out!  …So stinkin’ cute, every time!!   To me, little CG looks like a baby doll.  She just has those angelic features.  I hope you enjoy the preview!!

Maddie Reese! Montgomery, Alabama Baby Photographer

3 things:

1.  Oh, to have a sweet 2 month old again.  I’d go back there in a heart beat!  They are just getting bright eyed but they are still tiny and snuggly…and they smell good…and they give you little smiles…

2.  I love this job!   Because of it, I connected with an old friend.  She drove down from Birmingham to have MR’s pictures taken!  We met at her sweet parent’s home and just had the best time catching up and playing with this real life baby doll. 🙂  Let’s just say photography is my specialty, not parking. 😉

3.  How awesome is that wicker stroller?  Loved it!

Cortney - Those are some GORGEOUS CLOSEUPS of that baby!!!! Wow! I love the softness. Really sweet!

Josh c/o 2013! Montgomery, Alabama Senior Photographer

3 things:

1.  It was just grueling having to edit Josh’s Senior pictures. 😉   I mean, is he easy on the eyes or is it just me?   What’s up with all the model lookin’ folks I’ve been photographing lately?

2.  Guess what, Faulkner gals?  He’s heading your way next year until he leaves to go to Nursing School.  Don’t everyone trample him at once. 😉   Not only is he a cutie, he’s a GREAT guy.  I’ve known Josh and his family for a long time.  They are wonderful people!   We were able to squeeze in a few family shots before his pics started, I love it when that happens!

3.  I decided on downtown Montgomery for our venue.  Literally, we just walked around for an hour and a half and found some cool spots to shoot.   He is such a natural in front of the camera.    ENJOY! 😉

Pierce is 4 months!! Montgomery, Alabama Lifestyle Baby Photographer

3 things:

1.  This baby was so photogenic, wow!!  His eyes and smile just drew me in from the get-go!!   He gets it honestly from his smiley parents.  Pierce has changed so much since I took his newborn photos.   His mommy and daddy have a new home and I had a ball shooting his session there.

2.  One thing I love about this family is their ability to be themselves and show the camera some “realness.”   You can just SEE the love and joy on their faces.

3.  I love dogs.   Ba-bam.

Reena - Allison, I just LOVE LOVE LOVE this session! it is marvelous. The parents are stunning and he is just adorable! I keep picking a favorite then finding yet another one. I love that that laughing one in BW as well as the one of him playing with his feet!
