Hi there!
My name is Alison.

Once upon a time...

I fell in love with Photography.

It all began when I was 17 years old and landed a job in a photography lab. There was something about the smell of the chemicals and bringing photos to life from a small 35mm piece of film that fascinated me.

The ability to freeze a moment in time forever…well, it seemed almost magical to me.

I wanted to capture precious moments and document milestones! So I started studying photography and bought my first film camera.

My pride and joy was a second-hand Pentax K1000 I bought for the princely sum of $150. I thought it was the most amazing thing I’d ever owned.

And so my love affair began …

The early days…

In my early 20’s I worked in various photo labs, my favourite being a professional lab in Brisbane where I would spend my days scrutinising other professional photographers work. I was 23 years old when I decided to turn my love of photography into a part-time gig.

Well, that was the plan. However two decades  later and hundreds of weddings later, photography is an all consuming passion of mine.

After 600+ weddings you’d think I’d be cured of my obsession but I’m not!

I still love photographing weddings, people, families and newborns. To document the most important moments in people’s lives is both a thrill and a privilege.
