Hi – I’m Allison, a maternity and newborn photographer in Bethesda, Maryland.

I work with families all over Maryland and Northern Virginia, and offer sessions in many locations including Montgomery County MD, Arlington County VA, and Fairfax County VA

The Question is not what you look at, but what you see.

-Henry David Thoreau

My favorite images capture the tranquility amidst the highs and lows of motherhood, where we revert to our sincerest selves. As your photographer, my hope is to make art of the beautiful ordinary, so that in time, those moments that seem mundane and routine will be remembered and yearned for.

I have a thing for the type of people who like the feel of a crisp and chilly morning, the kind who are moved by the isolation of watching an immense night sky, and the ones who have a soul-stirring nostalgia for something they’ve never known.

If you are a yearner, a feeler, and a do-er, then you’re my people. If you’re also a fan of dogs, gin, and dark humor or dad jokes, then we’d probably be friends.
