This session was so much fun and an amazing chance to capture some documentary family photography for this growing fam! Not only did Kate nail the complementary outfit colors but we had the most gorgeous day for capturing this sweet family and their newest addition.

In-home family sessions will always have my heart. Staying somewhere familiar makes it comfy for kiddos, and the key to capturing beautiful, lifeful (yes, that is a word!) pictures of your kids is comfort. It is already scary enough to have someone snapping pictures, so keeping everything else easy and laid back is the best way to get them into their comfort zone quickly and acting themselves!

And, when you have a beautiful willow tree, pups, and plenty of room to run right in your front yard, why would you want to go anywhere else!?

Documentary family photography will always have my heart. There is something so special about letting kids be kids, getting interested in what they’re doing, and documenting their wild energy.

Parents, if you’re worried about your kiddos during a photography session, please don’t! The magic comes from letting them be kids and capturing them exactly as they are because that is how you want to remember them anyway, right? Look for bugs, roll around, spin around in circles, run as fast as you can… Giving your kids the floor and letting them lead your session makes such a huge difference in, well, everything! You’ll get the “best” photos when you’re not stressed and when they’re having fun!

Plus, I’ll bring snacks, so we’ll be good;) Inquire about family sessions here!

Love stories? Here's mine!

I wasn't born with a camera in my hand and I haven't "wanted to be a photographer ever since I can remember." My passion for photography developed (a bit) later in my life and since then, I would consider it quite the obsession...

Hi, I'm Ali.



As you explore, ask yourself "can I see myself in these images?"

I like to describe my style as, "a little grain, a little pop of color, a lot of wild love."
