Alison Conklin Photography



about alison

I am obsessed. My passion for weddings, food, fashion and design, along with my penchant for capturing interesting people in actual moments, forms the foundation on which my work builds.

When I was 14, I lost my mother... suddenly. Before she died, she and my dad had been avid photographers, amassing a trove of images. To process my loss, I poured through all of the black and white images of her I could find. The images taught me who my mother really was, and I was struck with an intense appreciation for how a single photograph can capture emotion and tell an entire story.

This experience has colored everything about who I am, how I work, and why I do what I do.

Life matters. I want my photographs to evoke feelings and offer anyone who sees them some connection to something within their hearts or something buried in their mind. I want my photographs to connect people with themselves and their lives in deeper ways.

I love color, joy, light, air, smiles, patterns, organized clutter, unexpected angles and potently genuine moments. Moments most of all because in the end, it's the moments that matter.
