I want to remember the look of determination in my older daughter’s eyes when she is focused on drawing her silly pictures. I have found that these little details can fade as the years pass, but they also add to the endless reasons you cherish your loved ones.
I'm a mama of two little girls based out of Sacramento, California. My journey with photography began as a way to capture the small, special details about daily life with my children. I never want to forget the way my baby’s tongue pokes out with her toothless smile.
"Allie was amazing to work with! She was super accommodating for our time frame, made us and our kids feel super comfortable, and was even able to get both our little ones to smile at the same time, which is almost unheard of! She has a great eye for capturing candid photos and beautiful lighting. We can’t wait for her to photograph our family again!"
From the Mediterranean Sea to the shores of Brazil, my husband and I fell in love while traveling the world. Now that we have kids, our adventures have consisted of trips to the California Coast and Disneyland - which still make us happy! As our children grow, we plan to explore faraway places as a family, and of course we will document every step of the way!
If I'm feeling stressed or overwhelmed I lace up my running shoes and out I go. I prefer running the same loop around my neighborhood - it's become a habit and I like the simplicity of getting up and going. When I feel the fresh air on my face and the rhythmic sound of my feet touching the pavement, my mind is peaceful.
I'm so incredibly blessed to be raising my two wonderful daughters. They are the most affectionate, girly-est girls in the world! We spend our days playing dress up, having dolly tea parties, and playing with their many princess toys. They truly are my world - they fill my life with so much love!

Let's be real - who doesn't feel anxious from time to time? But for me, it's been a struggle that I've coped with since I was ten years old. At times, I don't even notice the consistent medium-to-high level of anxiety I operate with on a daily basis. But, I acknowledge it, accept it, and constantly work on it. There should be no shame in being transparent - every one of us has our own unique story!
The cheery music, the sparkly decorations, the delicious treats . . . what isn't there to like? I'm one of those people who break out the decorations on November 1st. Yes, I know, some may find that obnoxious, but why delay the good vibes? I look forward to this season ALL YEAR LONG and see no problem in surrounding myself with things that bring me joy! And watching my kids experience the magic through their eyes? Even better.
