Hi! I’m so glad you stumbled upon my website and taking a few seconds to learn more about me...
I’m Alison, but everyone calls me Ali. I’m a mama to my beautiful girls, Sophia (Rose) & Ella (Reign) and wife to my best friend (and fellow creative), Ollie. We are a perfectly imperfect family of 4 living life on our own terms. We like going on family adventures as much as we love having a random lazy weekend at home or getting our hands dirty with a home improvement project. Everyone is pictured below, minus our newly adopted dog, Bodie, and our fat cat, Gansett.
We are former New Yorkers turned New Englanders and with a stint of being Southerners back in the day, when we lived in Savannah, GA for 4 years. Recently, we also added former ex-pats to our list, when we decided to move and live abroad on the tiny island nation of Malta for a year, during 2018/2019. After 4 moves in 5 years, we are back home and officially planting our roots in a lovely New England town outside of Boston.
My photography journey started early and has taken many different directions, twists, and turns over the years - some more exciting than others. What started off as a hobby in high school ultimately turned into me earning my BFA in Photography from the Savannah College of Arts and Design. After graduating, I work in the NYC fashion photography business for years . When I became a new Mom in 2012, I took my career in a different direction and start my own photography business. It took some time, but I have finally settled into running a portrait photography business that I am growing to be something I am proud of. I’m not sure when it happened, but somewhere between 2019 up until now, something clicked, and I decided to break through this box of conformity I had forced myself in for years and have finally accepted the person who I am and embrace my messy journey as a struggling artist & creative just trying to find her groove in this world. When I’m not photographing my clients, you can usually find me photographing my girls! They are my muses and the inspiration behind my newly relaunched business, Rose + Reign Creative.
I hope we get the chance to know each other, create beautiful images, and leave as new friends - thanks for stopping by!

"We've had yet another amazing session with Ali! We highly recommend her for a family session. You can tell she is an artist who is passionate about her craft but also made us feel calm and welcoming during our sessions with her. It felt more like a friend was taking out picture rather than someone we hired to take pictures for us. We absolutely love our photos! Thank you Ali!" - K.G.
