A friend of mine recommended Ali for my newborn photos. I went on her website and fell in love. It was exactly what we were looking for and it was in our budget. We were even able to do maternity photos. The maternity photo shoot came out beautifully. I told Ali what I was thinking for locations and she found us the perfect park.
We did our newborn shoot 7 days after my daughter was born. This is our first child and she made us feel very comfortable and relaxed during the shoot. Being new parents, she knew we would be tired and provided us with a nice spread of snacks and drinks. We were able to watch our beautiful daughter be photographed with us watching closely from a couch in her upstairs studio. Ali had many different props, outfits, headbands, blankets, etc. to choose from. Ali works great with the newborns and the parents, making everyone very comfortable.
Our pictures came out perfect. They were everything I ever dreamed about. Ali took so many photos that it was hard for us to decide which ones to put up in the house! She had the pictures to us very quickly so that we could use them for Christmas cards. We had so many compliments about the cards.
We will definitely be using Ali as our family grows and I would recommend her to anyone.
Ali is incredible. She is patient, kind, and giving. When she came to photograph my newborn baby girl, Lila, I was exhausted, tired, and my mom had just been hospitalized. Ali was amazingly patient with the baby, focused. It was a nice break for mommy, because I didn't have to do anything - just sit and relax while she created magic.
She was gentle and sweet with my baby girl. So patient as she had to sooth her, wait for her to eat, sleep, change diapers. She didn't seem rushed or in a hurry. She was just there to enjoy my baby and took her time to ensure she captured the moments she wanted to capture. She did whatever we asked - clothes, no clothes, sibling, family, flowers, bows - and also had an entire stockpile of props for our sweet girl and all kinds of beautiful ideas. She was creative and magically in the way she managed to capture Lila.
She is so giving and I appreciate that about her business in general. She is there for her clients, helps them, cares for them and their families, and really just goes all the way. She doesn't give her clients halfhearted sessions - she gives them everything. She puts her heart into what she is doing by making sure the families are happy. I would highly highly recommend Ali for ANY photography you need done at all - but especially for newborns. She adores babies and safely and patiently cares for them while she captures some of their precious first moments.
