Hey there! I’m alison – with one L. My boys *oh my stars my boys*. I have three, and they are my moon and stars and all of the atmosphere in between. Not to mention my superhero husband *swoons*. Our house is always a-buzz with excitement, between those boys and my three fur-babies. Love. I’m surrounded by love. I love classic. I love timeless. I love photographs. LOVE them. I love watching cheesy movies and learning the lines and repeating them, over and over and over again. Coffee keeps me alive, I think. Coffee and candy…and cupcakes. Coffee and candy and cupcakes …and cookies. Let’s face it, I’m a sucker for baked goods of just about any kind.
I graduated from the Catholic University of America eons ago with a Bachelor’s in English Literature. Photography wasn’t a major at the time (let me age myself: we did not have digital DSLR cameras yet!), so I took the courses offered at the time. I worked at Ritz Camera. I felt like I really had a grasp on the whole photography-thing and so I went public. Those early years were such a learning experience. Many, many gorgeous photographs came from that time as I learned and grew and really developed a style. And after more than a decade I’m here. I feel comfortable here. And I’m so honored and happy that you’re here and I can’t wait to make you cry. A good, happy, “this is so beautiful” cry. That’s what I want. I want happy tears.
