Your Arizona Family Photographer

For all stages of life

I offer rich, vibrant imagery that has emotional value through the connections and details of the people in the photos. When you look at your finished images, every time you pass them in the hall, I want you to feel the sun on your skin, the slight breeze in the air. All of that comes from professional editing with knowledge. I have been a photographer for 7 years and have mastered the art of perfecting the light within my shots as an Arizona photographer. I am located in Gilbert, but I am available to travel throughout Arizona! I strive to create the look of the light hugging my subjects and highlighting their best features. When I got married, my wedding photographer lost all of my images. That experience taught me so much, beginning with proper file handling and formatting to avoid making this mistake myself. I believe it is equally as important to have knowledge about proper file storage as it is to have knowledge of camera operation, lighting techniques and image editing with a timeless look that will be appealing to generations to come.

Current Special:

An Arizona Photographer for All Occasions

Serving all of Arizona, and beyond.

Families, Motherhood & Newborn

I truly value family photography. I believe that we should always take the pictures, because someday – they may be the only thing we have left of a person. I love all things centered around motherhood and family, including; pregnancy announcements, birth stories, maternity sessions, annual Christmas card photos, birthdays, fresh 48 and newborn sessions! Each different session type is interesting and fun for me – none of it is ever boring and that is what helps me to create a unique shoot for families. Here in Arizona, we are blessed with ample amounts of sunshine as well as gorgeous backdrops, but I also love indoor sessions at home, on location and at the hospital!

Arizona Wedding Photographer

I feel privileged to call myself a wedding photographer in Gilbert, Arizona (and the surrounding areas) because there is so much beauty here. Prior to moving to this area, I had done weddings in churches and the great outdoors. It wasn’t until I discovered Idaho that I was introduced to temple exits. I had never heard of one, but find myself booked often for them. These types of weddings are truly unique, I really appreciate the intimacy of weddings like this and love taking photos of these special couples! In addition to temple exits, I also photograph elopements, intimate ceremonies, and full day weddings. I work with all types of couples and would love to share your love story!

High School Senior Portraits & Headshots

Having photos of yourself is really important, but I know – they are so easy to put off. I like to make portraits like these fun and energetic. During your portrait session, we’ll have a mixture of posed images as well as candid shots. I like to include both of these with my Arizona senior portrait sessions. Whether you need something for the yearbook, or a great looking photo to add to your resume, real estate listings or other professional – I’ve got you covered! Portrait sessions can range from 30 minutes to one hour, depending upon how much time you’ll need. I also offer business branding packages where we can design a logo, letterhead and business cards!

How the process works

Choose Your Package

This is where we meet! I have a business model that is a little bit different than others, I like to set my pricing based off of time and your needs. As an Arizona photographer, I feel that basing my sessions off of time spent is fair for me and you. If you are looking for a custom package, for an event – big or small, please let me know and we can talk about the details to come up with something that works for both of us. You can even split packages with friends or family members if you’d like! This is the ideal choice for large families.

Sessions are priced by length

Choose Your Package

Schedule Your Shoot

Once a date is chosen for your session, I will collect a portion of your session amount up front. This is called a retainer fee, the retainer fees are an industry standard among professionals. This creates the business agreement between you and I. This payment is processed via the PayPal invoicing service which can be utilized by all clients (even if you don’t have a PayPal account!) The retainer fee is non-refundable, once it has been paid – your photography session date is removed from the available dates on my calendar. If you need to reschedule your Arizona photography session, please let me know with enough advanced notice.

Retainer Fee is Due

Schedule your Shoot

Camera Time | Payment is Due

This is where all of the fun happens! We’ll meet at the location chosen, I suggest arriving 10 minutes early to put the final touches on your outfits. Your session begins at the time on your appointment card, so please be sure to be on time! At the end of the shoot, your remaining balance is due, you may make your payment via cash (unless another method of payment and additional fees have been previously discussed.) You may incorporate blankets & props into your session, but please let me know what you plan to bring during your e-mail consultation so that I can see if I have anything that might compliment your shoot well! At this time, we’ll talk about the different groupings for the images, which side you prefer to have face the camera, and any areas of sensitivity that you may want avoided on camera.

Session Payment is Due

Post Processing & Delivery

Now for a sprinkle of magic! My sessions are edited by hand and each image is tailored to perfection. I use my own actions & presets to create a look that tells a story. While my goal is to get everything right during the session, part of what is included in your pricing is editing, I am well-versed with cosmetic edits such as skin retouching and “photoshopping” in a way that hides outfit malfunctions, lumps, bulges and other issues that may be unsightly. Additional editing services are available such as removal of double chins, extra pounds, head swaps and so on. As your Arizona photographer, my goal is to help you tell your story to generations to come. It is my hope that you will print the photos and display them how you see fit. I offer a print authorization with all of my packages, this is so that you can make prints of the images, anywhere – anytime, even 20 years from now!

Meet Ally

Arizona Family Photographer

Hi! I’m happy you’re here, my name is Ally and I’m an Arizona Photographer. I treat every session as a learning experience. I’m an open-minded person and I love to try new things. I always ask my clients for their input & what they want out of our time together. My goal is to provide you with amazing images that you are proud to show to other people, to hang on your walls and that evoke emotion. I am a mother to 7 small children ranging in age from 8-month-old identical twins up to 11 years old. I decided to take my photography skills to a professional level when my 2nd child was born. It was then where I realized that photography and I would have a life-long love affair. I recently moved back to the valley of the sun after spending 4 years in the pacific northwest. The time away from home gave me the opportunity to meet new people, expand my network and above all, learn about exciting weather conditions and lighting to help me overcome any obstacles that shall come my way!

Incorporating Motherhood into Business

A Mom owned company

More than anything in my life, I’m a mother. Most of my days are filled with making people happy and caring for them. That plays a huge role when it comes to working with people from young to elderly. One of the things I hear most about me as a business person, is my ability to be patient, no matter the circumstances. Sometimes, I assume dual roles and most of the time, those roles are photographer & friend. (day-of wedding coordinator and DJ are a few others I’ve needed to assume, reluctantly of course haha) I am here to help you achieve the photos that you are dreaming of. There are many moving parts to our relationship and I want you to know that you can come to me with any questions or suggestions pertaining to your shoot and print products. From locations to outfit choices, I can help you with anything that will make our time together, perfect.

Print Rights Included

I believe that when you purchase a session with me, your photos are yours to keep. If you need help ordering prints, I offer a print service as well – it’s a flat rate fee that can be added to any photography package to make sure that your prints are perfect. (I happen to be in close with one of the biggest print companies, so if something goes wrong – they go above and beyond to make it right for us!) I also believe that when it comes to wedding photography in Scottsdale, (and beyond) it’s important to print the photos, that is the only sure way to hold onto those memories.

Phoenix Photographer

I personally love all forms of photography, I’ve done everything from babies to weddings and beyond. Some of my sessions are end of life shoots for families and pets. These images are remarkable and help to capture a piece of who a person is. Although a lot of photographers like to stick to one niche, I prefer to continue to grow and to take all kinds of sessions when a client comes to me, believing that I am the right photographer for their needs. Sessions that I haven’t done before help me to grow as a person and as an artist so please, if you don’t see samples of a session that fits your Arizona photography needs, please let me know and I will send some to you, or offer special pricing for you!

My heart and soul go into every session

My goal is to make you smile

One of the things that sets me apart from other people is that as a consumer, I ended up being a bride without wedding day photos due to a catastrophic hard drive failure on the photographer’s part. This was very unfortunate for my sweet husband & I, but it did provide a dose of harsh reality – small mistakes can ultimately cost us the memories we’ve worked so hard to preserve. After my wedding photographer lost my images, I took the time to focus on learning proper file handling, to prevent things like this happening to my clients.
