Ali did a maternity photo shoot with me when I was 8 months pregnant with my first baby. She was so easy to deal with in the lead up organising location, time/date, outfit options etc. On the day we met early just as the sun was rising to capture many amazing photos down at Port Melbourne beach which was right near my house. Ali made me feel really comfortable, and we managed to take so many photos in different locations along the sand dunes and by the water, in the end I had too many to chose from it was hard to narrow down my favourites. I would love for Ali to shoot photos of me again in the future!
I was never one to like getting my photo taken. In fact I hated it. But I wanted to capture my second pregnancy as I never did it with my first. Ali was so wonderful and made me feel so comfortable. I never felt posed or pressured and really enjoyed the experience and regret not having done it for my first. I love the photos that resulted and have Ali to thank for that.
"It was Ali's idea to do a sunrise morning shoot. I was 8 months pregnant and had very few bump pictures! We met at the crack of dawn one beautiful summer morning and had the entire beach to ourselves. I don't know how she did it, but I don't remember posing for a single photo, however she captured the most magical moments so naturally without even trying. We chatted and chatted and giggled hysterically and all I remember thinking was how lucky I was being photographed by such a beautiful, warm and spirited person. When Ali sent me the photos I cried. Tears of joy for the little person I was about to meet, but also for the wonderful photos I would have forever... Ali, you're incredible. Xx"
"We were extremely lucky to have the opportunity for Ali to come to our home and take some family photos. After a trying time for our family it was fantastic that Ali could travel to us and capture some special family moments. She made my family feel very comfortable especially my son who loved showing off for the camera! Our final photos turned out beautiful!"
"Ali had a beautiful, natural way with our children and put them both at ease. We have had two shoots with Ali and came back for the second as we loved the first one so much. She makes everyone feel comfortable and you can't imagine she is getting such beautiful shots at the time as she is so relaxed. Then you get the photos back and just go WOW! She really has an eye for it and seems to have all the tricks up her sleeves to keep the kids entertained and participating. A true 'highly recommend' right here. A big thanks to you Ali."
