Hey there!

I'm Allison, a 16-year-old self taught photographer based out of West Burlington, Iowa. I have a love of documenting others through photography, so I started my business almost three years ago. I am a junior in high school and I love + am loved by Jesus. I also have a love for playing music, eating homemade pizza, and traveling.

My goal when I take photos is to document real life as it is happening. Not perfect poses and posed smiles, but real life. Many people are unsure what to do when they step in front of the camera, so my main advice is this: don't look at the camera and pose. Laugh and talk as you would if I wasn't there. It's simple, and it's a great way to capture real life.

Another thing about me: I don't really like talking about just myself, so let's hear about what you have to say. Click the contact button below below and we can talk.

Some frequently asked questions...

How many weddings have you photographed? Over 15 weddings in the past three years!

Have you done any school for photography? None! I am completely self-taught and am currently in high school.

Can I see an example of a full wedding or session from you? Of course! Let me know what type of session you want to see and I can send an example gallery your way!

Do you plan on doing photography as a full-time job after high school? As of right now, I am undecided on my future career and college choices, though I am leaning towards turning this business into my full-time job.

Do you travel for sessions? Absolutely! I adore traveling and am willing to go on any new adventure for your wedding or session. I have been to New Jersey for a wedding, Colorado for a senior, Nashville for a session, and would love to make this list of places grow.  Traveling is one of my favorite things so I would love to go anywhere for a session!
