Documentary family portrait sessions capture the ongoing adventure of real and every day life. We all know that life isn’t perfect, but there is beauty and love all around you. The best moments are the ones found in your home every day, and not in the perfectly posed family photo. They’re the ones that you’ll want to remember forever, but the ones that are easy to forget after a chaotic day. Sometimes, it can just be buried in that fourth load of laundry!
I'm a Type-A planner, but one of my favorite parts about family documentary sessions is that I can't plan for everything. I will interact with everyone, but won't pose or provide any direction. We'll let the bond you have with family members occur naturally, so it's authentic to your every day life. I can't predict if someone will have a meltdown, draw on your wall, or lick all of your silverware and put it back in the drawer, but I'll be there to document it. We're all on this adventure together for the day!
Going on a family vacation? I packed my bags yesterday! Hiring someone to document your family vacation allows you to relax and keep your phone tucked away where it belongs, so you can focus on connecting with each other. Allison is local to the Atlanta area, but also travel to Lake Lanier for family photography sessions and reunions. Shoot me an email to take home the best souvenir!
"Allison was incredibly easy and fun to work with. She was so easy to work with and responded so quickly, her business model is efficient and her emails and quote process was a breeze. Allison arrived to our home and settled right in to our family
activities. She easily moved in and around us catching all the fun and even the temper tantrums! I look forward to inviting Allison back again each year to document our family as we grow!"

"I have known Ally for a few years now--she is one of the hardest working women I know, and she consistently perfects her craft! She creates a laid-back atmosphere so that my entire family feels comfortable--and then she captures our comfort and
honesty beautifully! I love how she sees the world, and I love seeing my family through her perspective!"
- Meredith Burns
"Allison was extremely professional, responsive and accommodating. She was able to utilize the space in our house beautifully and find the best spots to shoot that would best compliment her style and what we were looking for. She was patient and
understanding while our baby girl fussed throughout the session and despite the challenge, was able to produce beautiful and classic photographs. We were extremely happy with the photographs and would definitely use Allison again for future photo
- Katie Mason
"Allison played a big part in making our wedding day the best day of our lives. We trusted her to capture the intimacy and emotion we were experiencing and we felt completely comfortable with her around. It was like having a close friend as our photographer.
Our photographs are now one of my cherished possessions. She did a wonderful job with both formal and candid shots. We are so grateful for the experience and what she was able to do for us." Additional wedding photography reviews can be seen on Wedding Wire.
