    Leave your comments, I love and read them all. Contact me anytime. I would love to hear from ya.

Baby Shoal

This is my youngest son, Shoal. I think he is the cutest thing ever but I think that because he is mine. I’m sure we all think our kids are the cutest things ever. What do you think? This image was taken in Southern Alberta when we went down for Thanks giving and my Birthday. I love everything about it and so I just ordered the Largest canvas possible; a 40×60…. So excited. It is for my office. YAY!  (All my canvas prints are 25% til Christmas). I will have to post pictures when I get it and have it hung so you can see it’s  beauty. Just wanted to write a quick post to say a few things:

1. My Spooky Sessions for October 29th and 30th are now full (unless you bribe me with some really yummy candy-I might fit you in)

2. Christmas is coming FAST. If you are wanting family, children, individual, or any portraits done, spaces are VERY limited. October is fully booked and November is almost fully booked. Email me at allison@urbanalli.com to book your time.

3. You can now order your Christmas cards. To get them in time to you, no orders will be taken after December 1, 2010. Go here to see my cards.

4. November’s Promotion is coming soon. I’ll give you a hint: it has to do with Gift Certificates! Awesome and EASY gift for anyone. I will post more closer to November.

Ok. After all the reading, here is my sweet babe. Later!

shannon - seriously adorable!!!

pat sandusky - That is so cute. I want one maybe big enough to fit into the big frame??? it’s priceless. maegan’s are neat too. 13 by 13 or one of you that size or both.

Michelle Kane - He is seriously darling! Is this with your new 85? The bokeh is yummy!

Liam, Brennan, and Beth

This is my New baby nephew Liam! I just got to meet him a couple of weeks ago. My brother Brennan and his wife Beth live in Kalispel, Montana and so we only get to see them a few times a year. Their son Liam is such a talker. When you get his attention and start talking to him he goes crazy and makes all these talking noises back. It is so cute and funny. For every shoot, the first few images I’m always testing my lighting, as I was doing this and they weren’t “posing” I saw this! It is my favorite one of the whole bunch. I love how you can see the love. 

This is him talking to Beth.

Beth Sandusky - I LOVE THEM-they look so great!!! THANK YOU!!

Tj - I LOVE the first one. Such a sweet moment. What a cute fam.

Tatum - What beautiful eyes, they just sparkle!

Stephanie, Ken and their Dogs

Stephanie and I lived on the same street growing up in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada. Sheridan Road to be exact.  My parents still live on the same road in the same house but Stephanie moved away when I was like 8 or 10 or something and this is the first time we have seen each other since! Crazy! I remember her sister used to call me the “Red Headed Woo Pecker”. This is maybe because I was annoying red head?? lol. It is amazing to me to go back to Lethbridge every so often to visit my family and to see the growth of the city and how the trees are so much larger. So many memories there. This is their family. Her Husband Ken and their three dogs, Valquerie, Heimdoll, and Dash Dash. Did I get that right Steph? It took me forever to learn their names. Holy, to all you Pet photographers out there, it is HARD to capture these creatures! They are harder than kids! The only thing I could say to get them to look at me is “treat?” and after a while of me lying they stopped looking. Stephanie, I have to say this because I was so amazed- These dogs sometimes sleep in the master bed with their owners!! I could not believe that when she told me and after seeing all the slobber they produced at the shoot. I would be afraid of my life every night. Look at those chompers. But really, They were super sweet and the images turned out great. Hope you love em steph and ken.

Audrey Litfin - How fun!! Looks like a great family!!

shannon - i love them!! what personalities the dogs have! great shots!

Tj - Great pics Allison! I shot a dog the other day and the only thing to get him to look at me was “Tucker want a treat?” I felt so mean when I didn’t have a treat. He quit looking at me after a while.

Beth Sandusky - I love doggy babies too! They look really great!

Ken Williams - Pics look great. Don`t worry Valkyrie(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valkyrie) and Heimdal(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heimdal) cannot spell their names very well, so they wont notice. 😉

Tatum - Dogs are part of our families too! You did a great job taking the pics of them. It couldn’t have been easy but they look gorgeous!


Becky just turned 40! Can you believe it?! If I look as good as her when I’m 40, holy, count my blessings! Beautiful Girl eh? She came for her session on her 40th Birthday. She thought it would be something fun to do. I hope I made all your wildest dreams come true becky! lol. You are such a great girl. She has ALL boys as well, just like me. I love my boys and hers are so handsome as well. Her hair is so gorgeous as well. I used to have super curly hair just like this (but red) and it all disappeared with having kids. I used to complain about it but I wish for it back everyday. Happy Birthday Becky! Hope you love em.

Audrey Litfin - What a fun birthday idea, can’t believe she’s 40!!! So beautiful and yep, awesome hair!!! I would LOVE to have curly hair. 🙂 Beautiful editing!

Angela - Becky! You look like a super model! You inspire me! Good job lady!

Ok now for this family. These kids (and mom!) were so adorable. Colby, whenever I asked him to do something or if he liked something he said this cute little “yes”. I loved it. If only I could have recorded it and put it on here so that you could hear it. What darling kids. Kinley is the baby girl here and her mother has all of her children’s names tattooed on her body. She just got Kinley’s done recently.

“Flora Mae” designs these Gorgeous rosette flower head bands above. You can email them at “floramaegirls@gmail.com” for more info. I use them ALL the time.

Look at her cute little pouty lips here.

Tatum - ALLISON!! I love the pictures. You did such a great job. You put most of the ones on your blog that I was going to pick! Afterwards I was thinking I didn’t get any pictures of just the two kids together. Oh well, I guess that means we are going to have to get more pictures :)! Shucks!

Shelley Cunningham - OMG beautiful picutres

Michelle Kane - Too darn cute and sweet and precious all rolled into one! Love the sweet baby closeups.

Kimberly Pratt - Allison those pictures are wicked. I think if I lived closer I would have you take our pictures. Love all your props and backdrops too. You must have a great space to store everything!
