“Allison is a wonderful photographer and person to work with! She recently did our newborn shoot and we were over the moon when we got our gallery back. She captured so many great moments in a short amount of time and made us feel comfortable while doing so. Highly recommend her services!” – Kristen

“Allison did an excellent job of helping us choose our perfect location for photos and even helped us pick our outfits for the day, which was a giant help. I was apprehensive about maternity photos (I don’t like the way they turn out for others all the time) so I was worried at first but I had nothing to be concerned about. Our photos were gorgeous and I absolutely love them! We can’t wait to have Allison do our in home newborn photos, too.” – Melissa

Mom looks at baby while Dad holds him and they make faces at each other at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond VA

“We hired APP to do a family shoot for us, with our baby. Baby’s schedules are never really predictable, nor are their moods. APP was very flexible with our schedule (Asher kept sleeping!), and she gave him time to get used to the camera… We were worried that the shoot and resulting pictures would feel forced or unnatural. That was so far from the reality of our session! It was fun, easy going, and natural. Your directions were easy to follow and you captured our personalities in the pictures.” – Ananda

“My biggest fear was that I would look and feel totally uncomfortable during the shoot. Fortunately, as soon as I met Allison I was put at ease by her down-to-earth personality and laid-back approach to the photo shoot. She was very reassuring and made me feel confident. Her professionalism and sweet demeanor created a comfortable environment for me and it definitely showed through in the final product!” – Stephanie

“Allison made capturing my 12-day old infant easy and non-stressful. My favorite part of the session was that my daughter was alert and happy throughout (once we took a feeding break!). I’m so glad to have these early-day images. She’s already grown so much since this shoot.” – Dori
