about me...

I’m Allie… wife to Jared and mama to Emma and Jonah. This site is where I share our story in photographs. Nothing makes my heart sing more than capturing my family as we really are… the humor, the love, the real authentic moments that make us US.

Let's see, what else... I’m an INFJ through and through. Music is one of the great loves of my life (just don't ask me to sing). I have a handful of close friends who are the greatest girls of all time and not a single one lives in my state. My mom has called me Bird for my entire life. I left Portland kicking and screaming, but have (mostly) adjusted to life back East. I only look at magazines for the pictures. I've never met a bag of Haribos I couldn't finish in a single sitting. My motto in photography and life is: “Be silly. Be honest. Be kind.”

in my camera bag...

I shoot with a Canon 6D. My 24-70L II is my workhorse and if I could only have one lens, that would be it. Less used but very loved are my 50mm 1.4 and 100mmL.
