About Allison


My mission is pretty simple...






to have a BEAUTIFUL portrait



of yourself to remind you



of your true value.


Life is short. And uncertain. One day you will be looking for photos of your loved ones and likely wishing you had more.  One day your loved ones will be looking for photos of you.


I believe everyone should exist in photos... beautiful ones. I believe God placed you on this earth for a purpose and created you to love and be loved and to be celebrated. You are good enough right now, you are worthy enough right now, you are important enough right now, you are beautiful enough right now.


I want to help you see the beauty that those who love you already see... and just maybe for the first time, give you a photo of yourself that you truly love. Everyone deserves that. Everyone is worthy of investing the time and money to capture beautiful photos.


And one day your photos will be your most treasured possession... to you... to your loved ones. But don't wait... for we don't know what tomorrow may bring.






Allison has been taking photos since she inherited her father's camera at age 16. She has been widely published in over 50 publications, including 14 front covers and has taught photography internationally. At home in Calgary, she writes a regular photography column for Creative Scrapbooker Magazine and enjoys a busy family life with her gorgeous husband and two teenagers (who she occasionally has to bribe to stand still long enough to take their photos so she can scrapbook the memories after they leave home.)
