Meet me

 I specialize in shooting portraits, whether it's at my home-studio, outdoors at a beautiful location, or in your home or business.  My passion is creating classic, elegant portraits of children, families & professionals.

I strive to create a relaxed, no stress, no pressure atmosphere for my clients. While I do love those posed pics, I make sure to get those out of the way first. I don't focus heavily on posing and instead like to give prompts for a natural flow throughout your session. I'm often told by families and business owners at the end of our session that "this was so easy".

Course instructors, clients, and friends have described my photography style as soft, modern, casual and artistic. I'd love for you to share your vision with me and I assure you we can create just the look you're hoping for. If you don't have a vision in mind, that's ok too. I have lots of ideas! With your feedback, we'll plan the perfect session for you.

ey there!  I'm a McKinney-based portrait photographer & I'd love to have the opportunity to create beautiful, timeless photos for you, your business, or your family.

Allison was so great to work with!  We have used her numerous times both for our family photos as well as branding photos for business purposes.  She is professional, prompt, and has a creative eye to capture our group perfectly and uniquely each time, whether it be  family photos, newborn session, or branding photos. She is extremely family-friendly and patient, which is a must when doing family photos with small kids. There is tremendous value in her service and skill!

We’ve used Allison for family photos since 2021 and she’s the best!  So easy to work with, great with kids, and always somehow manages to take the best pictures of my family that I’ll cherish forever!

Allison's photos have been by far my favorite for our family.  They are beautiful, creative, and capture each person's best features.  Not only that but she is also so easy to work with that my kids and husband were in the best moods the whole time.  She has captured some of the most wonderful memories for us, from our two dogs in family photos and even taking photos of all nine cousins, aunts, and uncles for my mother-in-law. Every time we use her I always know our photos are going to turn out fabulous!

Allison is an amazing photographer.  She is patient and kind and she has that je ne sais quoi that makes her pictures stand out.  She has a true gift and that really rare and particular ability of capturing the different facets of my children's personalities, and this is really priceless.
Allison can really work with lights and angles.  She has great ideas, and she knows good locations, she listens actively to your expectations and she knows what works, and most importantly she is versatile: she makes beautiful headshots, kids milestone pictures, fine art, and family portraits.
I can't recommend her enough!

Absolutely loved working with Allison and will definitely use her in the future! She was so patient when my almost 2 year old decided to melt down. Thank you again!

Allison did an amazing job with our family photos this year! She was so patient with our kids and did a great job directing us to capture the best moments! We are SO happy with the way they turned out–it was hard to pick our favorites because we loved them all!
