Ally shares her thoughts about love, life, health, business and more...!
2o14 was a major year for Allyfotografy. This was the year where I went from " this is a hobby to this is a business". I have had so many people support me as I kept learning and growing through this year and I am forever grateful. When I started out I just wanted to have a hobby, something to pass the time and to have fun. Since then I have realized that this is also my passion and something I have wanted to do for many years. 2o14 was also the year that I started Weddings! I had done a few weddings here and there for fun, but this was my very first year to shoot all by my lonesome and I'm so thankful for Ashley & John for that amazing opportunity. I also partnered up with my friend Bryan who is also a photographer. We shot our first wedding together this summer and it was simply amazing. I also ventured out and had many newborns in my makeshift studio!!! Yes, I have major baby fever right now and I can't wait to have one of my own little monsters to take pictures of. I did so many shoots in 2o14 but my favourite shoot I did was my ( and most photographers) dream... an Alice in Wonderland shoot! The weeks of prep work, design and placement to make this shoot come alive was astounding. If you search " Alice shoot" you will see almost every Alice shoot depicted as sad and eerie almost as if it was a vintage dark shoot... but I had something else in mind! I wanted pop of colour, fantasy and enchanting... I had the BEST group of people who helped out! I told them that I always wanted to do this and they all did this for me no questions asked. Some had their full costume all ready to go! My dream was to have my shoot one day featured in a magazine, a young photographer and her work! Well lucky me, this 2o15 I will have my work featured in a magazine!!! I cannot say anymore for now, but I'm on cloud 10! I also was interviewed for a Canadian company called Mogo and will have my article published this 2o15! Talk about hard work paying off eh? I am far from where I want to be. Surrounded by amazing mentors and goal oriented people, I find myself constantly reaching for the stars and beyond! 2o14 taught me to be patient, to be kind and to always support yourself and others... to always re-evaluate yourself and keep evolving to a greater and better you... I am thankful for all those people who support me and lift me higher! 2o15, Allyfotografy is ready for you!
