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

A maternity or newborn photography session may feel like a daunting task, but don’t worry – As your maternity and newborn photographer in Maryland, I’ll help you every step of the way. Your session will be a safe space for your family to truly be themselves, free of judgment and pressure. I’ll guide you through prompts and instructions to help you focus on the moment, your surroundings, and your interactions with your loved ones, for images that portray the unique beauty of your familial connections, and give you a visual place to return when this season of your lives has passed.
As one of the only photographers in Maryland and Virginia certified as both a Click Pro Master and a Hello Artist Creative, I’m uniquely qualified to provide a professional photography experience resulting in beautiful, high quality photographs. To further highlight my qualifications, I was a winner of Click Magazine’s Voice Competition in 2020, was voted a Best Photographer in Rockville in 2021, 2020, and 2019, have been published in Click Magazine and Z!nk Magazine, and was a featured photographer in the book Hidden Cities.
Complete your booking by filling out the (digital) paperwork I’ll send you. Your booking is complete when I receive your retainer and signed session agreement. You’ll then receive access to my client closet to start picking out a gown, and we’ll set up a time for your planning call.
During your planning call we’ll go over everyone’s wardrobe, I’ll make recommendations for your location based on the type of images you want, and we’ll chat about hair, makeup, and accessories.
Have your Session!
After your session, you’ll receive a link to your private online gallery. For the keepsake package, your images will be fully edited and ready to download. For the basic or classic package, you’ll be able to select your images which I will then edit and place back into the gallery for you to download.
