Your Story

First we plan. We book a date. Now I need to know about your family and the types of things you love to do. This is your story and my job is to document it. Where would you like me to photograph you and who wants to be in the photos? Will we be indoors, a place special to you or outside if the weather permits? We can also plan your budget, you may choose photos later as desired, or decide in advance that you want a private commission with art prints on giclee paper and hand made framed images.

The Shoot

Most shoots last for about 2 hours unless you want me to document the whole day. My work is candid, but not entirely left to chance! So if I see great light or gorgeous composition I may ask you to play or cuddle in the best spot. I am not into forced poses but help is on hand if needed. The images above were all taken in natural light - the sofa, the bed, activities, play. I spend time watching you and give your family the same attention to detail that my art work gets. 

The Edit

I edit your images down to the very best and give you a choice of colour and black and white. All images will be processed and edited by hand. High end re - touching is not standard though so let me know of special requests in advance and we can price those accordingly. If you get a spot - that I can disappear of course!

 Your Choice

You have a look at the work. You now decide which you would like, and how you would like them. I can do A4, A3 and larger C type prints, canvas, and have bespoke frames made if required by my framer, who also works for Manchester Art Gallery and The Whitworth). I also print on giclee art paper. If you have any special requests do let me know in advance so I can shoot to that format if possible. I am also happy to sell high resolution printable files to you so you have digital copies. 

One Mum says:

"Allie has the ability to make you feel totally relaxed even when being photographed, she is a lovely, energetic and warm presence to have around and slots into the family surroundings with such ease.
Allie will gauge a child’s mood instantly and knows exactly how and when to get the best from a shoot and her images show a wonderful use of both natural light and any surroundings in which she finds herself.
In just the short time she spent with my family she was able to capture what I love most about my funny, quirky, live wire of a little boy (and my partner too!).
Allie then gave me the opportunity to review all the images and pick my favourites but I honestly couldn't chose so I took the lot as I loved every single one!! They are a cherished memento of our family and we are grateful to have them."
