Alison's Story

Discover how the experiences of losing a parent and undergoing a health scare have given Alison a deeper understanding of how photographs help us to connect with our loved ones

Alison Conklin is a professional wedding and editorial photographer who has spent her career chasing a desire to document genuine moments that feature real people.

Growing up in a family of avid photographers, Alison always held a love for image-making. However, after losing her mother when she was a teenager, it became much more. Back then, a shoe box full of her mother’s photographs helped her to process her loss. Ever since, she has worked to create the same deep connection for others to embrace in the images she makes of their loved ones.

“There is an incredible power in taking the time to truly see the people you’re making images of”
