Your Arizona Photographer
Hi, I’m Ally
WIFE | MOTHER | ARTIST
I am really just a simple person, I am one of the top photographers in Arizona, but I love to travel and to spend time with my family. I often have tour dates in Northern Maine, Arizona and California. If you don’t already know me, I am a mother to 7 children. My husband and I met when I was in high school, and we fell in love right away. After 2 years of dating, we began our family which has grown into quite the circus with 7 children.
My last pregnancy was incredibly humbling, by a higher power, I was chosen to mother twin babies who have a condition called Albinism. This condition is where they lack melanin in their hair, skin and eyes which leaves them with impaired vision. Mothering children with special needs has helped me in so many ways, it has softened me as a person in my everyday life but I also have developed a love for, and the patience necessary to work with all kinds of people. My twins were also born early, at just 32 weeks – we spent 38 days in the NICU after one of them was found to have a serious heart condition.
I believe that photographs are the physical memories that we leave behind and so I try my very best to be accomodating to all budgets. Sometimes, this leads people to believe that I lack the skills to offer professional imagery, but for those that do choose to work with me, they are often surprised with the attention to detail and the work that I put into making their session special. I use professional top quality equipment, and my work has been featured in magazines in print and online. I also placed 14th in a worldwide photography contest that had over 13,000 entries. I love taking pictures of people, and I love to make them happy.
Photography is my full time job, I often service several clients in one day. I limit the number of weddings that I take each year because I want to be sure that I am at my best when documenting the love between people. My own wedding photographer lost every image from our special day and after feeling all of the emotions and learning from her mistakes, the experience has helped me to be the photographer that I am today.
