Nice to Meet You

Hi there - I'm Allie.  A bit about me: I am typically pretty quiet; I am an observer, and when I’m not, I am mostly goofy. I try to be kind to people always… I think we need a bit more kindness in this world. If I could spend every day outside, I would. I find most inspiration in nature. I live for adventure. When I am in one place too long I start to get antsy. There is just not enough time to see all that I want to see.

In addition to photography, I work full time for an oceanographic research institution in marketing & communications. My background is in environmental science… but I think I always knew I wanted to use it to end up in more of a creative role professionally. It took me a long time to figure out my thing- how to combine the stuff I was good at and the things I was interested in and I think I have finally found it in storytelling. There are so many important stories that need to be told. I believe in the power of an image to make a difference, to educate, to connect, but most importantly to make us feel... and this is something I believe carries across all genres of the field.

Someday maybe you will see my images on the pages of National Geographic (Nat Geo, call me), but until then I am excited to continuously meet new people – the ones that live a bit out of the box and love with every corner of their soul - and help them to tell their stories with as much genuine passion as they deserve.

What better story to tell than one of love- couldn’t our world use a bit more of it? 

me & my person...


want to work together?

I would love to hear from you...
