Tips for DIY photos of your family for christmas!

Allisonannestudios ends up on Fox and friends how did this happen? Well,  because I did a spot last year I am now in their data base and I along with Twisted Oaks get the call now every so often (insert heart eyes emoji)  Lee one of the producers from Fox and Friends emailed me Monday to be on the show, ON TUESDAY MORNING, well life kinda stopped! And even though I had a serious day ahead of me I knew I had to go! How can I not share my tips of photographing your children with the world all while having Julia as my subject! I called my very good friend Jackie, owner of Annata Wine Bar here in Downtown Hammonton to see if she could bring her two littles, Colella and Lily! I have photographed those girls a ton so I knew they were the right fit! So elite limo picked us up at 4am yes 4AM!  Allisonannestudios was off to Fox and Friends!  The girls were giddy the whole 2 hour ride and I apologized to the driver several times for the constant chattering of 3 little mouths so early in the morning lol.  Sandi from Twisted Oaks Studio met us there with her son Luke! As soon as we got there we headed right into make up and hair.  Julia made herself right at home immediately.  I am so thankful for Jackie snapping away as I concentrated on not only getting my set straight but getting Julia calm and ready for the spot!

These girls had a blast!

So the spot on Fox and Friends never went as planned (as television usually doesn’t) but I went with another secret mission.  PLANNERS! If anyone is following my second business venture it is weareladypreneur  so I brought several planners to hand out and when I literally delivered one to ainsley earhardt our host, and she tweeted it,  I about died!!

She was sweet as pie and I just loved her!

 So when we got back to the green room we felt there was reason to celebrate and I am so glad I came prepared with my clicquot 🙂 we toasted all things awesome!

You just never know where life will take you!

Until next time New York City and Fox and Friends!!! You have my heart <3

Genevieve was supposed to come in for a newborn session, but Mom thought that it would be best to wait for her to grow a little older. This turned out to be the right decision because this session was epic! Genevieve, her mom, dad, and sister were the first family in my new studio. It was such a fun first experience! Mom, Dad, and big sister were a complete joy to photoshoot along with the beautiful baby girl.

So Much Posing!

One of the best parts about this shoot was getting to know my studio. I love how much space I have to photograph families in. It really gives me the freedom to take amazing photos. The brown chair is from Overstock. I love using Overstock for seating in the studio and for propping.  Along with the gorgeous light that I get in my studio, it gave the photos a very warm, homey atmosphere.

I was able to get both Mom and Dad alone for separate pictures with Genevieve. Genevieve is precious. They both just loved to snuggle her! Capturing these moments is what makes my job great. There is so much love in all of the pictures. Sessions like these really remind me why I love taking newborn and family photos so much. I love being able to create something that they will be able to cherish forever. <3

Yay for being a MOMPreneur! I couldn’t believe it when out of nowhere one day I received an email saying I was nominated for NJmompreneur of the week from njmom.com!

what is a mompreneur you ask? Mompreneur is a neologism defined as a female business owner who is actively balancing the role of mom and the role of entrepreneur. As defined from wikipedia

Well, actively balancing is open for dispute but I try my best every day to teach my soon-to-be 8 yo that you can have it all. Never settle…EVER, and follow your heart to do what you love. I love what Jim Carey says about his dad.

 “I learned many great lessons from my father. Not the least of which was that: You can fail at what you don’t want. So you might as well take a chance on doing what you love.”

Erika, an editorial assistant for the website sent me a slew of questions about being a mompreneur. When I read through them I immediately was a bit overwhelmed. When would I have time to sit and write about who I am. But also, who actually am I??

I was so excited to be a part of NJmom.com that I made the time to reflect on and think about the questions that were asked of me. I actually enjoyed all the reflection I did and reliving the inspiration I have had over the years. Resilience and determination are two traits I hope Julia sees glaring at her. I have picked myself up (or others dragged me off the ground!) more time than I care to count. My hope is to always pass that on to others just starting out, especially new moms!!! But there was a lot of mompreneur questions…A LOT!

Yes, I am a professional photographer, I have also created a dayplanner for women entrepreneurs a few years ago which hit a snag and I have paused production (life of a risk taker) but my heart tells me there is much more I will be doing. That I haven’t scratched the surface of who I am or what I will be doing in 5-10 years. It is a scary and confusing feeling but also invigorating at the same time. Taking risk isn’t comfortable at all. It isn’t in my nature and scares the bejesus out of me. But living in complacency is SO uncomfortable that I am pushed to move.

Eventually I did find out who in fact nominated me! Fellow mompreneur Brooke Sacco, bless her heart! She is a council woman and a prominent citizen of Hammonton Nj ( who’s also an owner of vinyl brewing ) had nominated me and I was moved to tears! I try to give good vibes, speak my truth, and always pass on strength and inspire others. I have traveled an interesting road to get to where I am today. Though I feel like my journey is still just beginning, I have lots of experience to pass on at any time 🙂 I always, ALWAYS want to make others feel good and feel that the impossible is simply…well…TOTALLY POSSIBLE. You never know if you are helping, inspiring, or if anyone is paying attention. I am convinced that even in our darkest days when we press on and share hope, people take notice! So keep going!!

Here is the article that was so eloquently written about me. I am truly grateful to NJMOM and to Brooke! You can always read more about me here in my bio!

My Sweet Friend

When I opened my studio a couple of months ago, I knew that it was going to be one of the most amazing events in my life.  I wanted my first sessions to be meaningful. I love to photograph newborns and wanted the first newborn session in my new studio to be perfect. So, It was only fitting that the first be for a woman that I have been friends with for a giant chunk of my life. I have been friends with this beautiful mommy for 20+ years! Amber has her own business, Amber J Photography, and we have shot many events together! But our friendship goes so much deeper than work. I was ecstatic in the fall when I found out she was pregnant with a baby girl! But then I was reconstructing and moving into the studio we didn’t speak much over winter. Next thing I knew as I was moving my stuff in Amber delivered sweet Emma. Now her new baby would be my first baby in my new amazing space!

Emma Pearl in the Studio

Amber’s baby girl, Emma Pearl, is gorgeous. She is already a spitting image of her dad! She was amazing and absolutely adorable. Lots of smiles and laughter! Amber is wearing a headpiece designed by Petite Boutique, another staple red piece of the shoot. Many of her accessories were made by them but this floral headpiece was especially beautiful and made the photos pop! My incredible floor was provided by Richland Carpet and Flooring, and laid by my one and only (the hub!) P.S. My husband worked so hard in this space to make it perfect for me! When I first saw this floor I knew it would photograph beautifully and with a unique style!

In the end, I found that this session meant so much to me. It felt amazing to have such a good friend to be the subject of the first newborn shoot in my new studio! It really made me appreciate the people in my life who were able to help me make this dream happen. Also that I couldn’t provide an even higher quality session to my special friend filled my heart with joy!

Welcome to Allisonannestudios, my favorite place to be! If we haven’t met yet, my name is Allison Caracciolo-Gallagher, I am an artistic photographer based out of Hammonton, New Jersey. I have been married for 16 years and our daughter, Julia, came along in 2011.  I honestly think that I owe my success to my daughter. Becoming her mother took my work to a whole new level. I literally evolved into an artist who documents love. I exclusively use natural light to capture the true beauty of my subjects.  I do it all- newborns, family, maternity, children, and a limited amount of weddings per year. I custom design our sessions and walk you through each process and at the end you will have beautiful heirlooms of your family to treasure for generations. I am a print artist and specialize in creating art that is designed to be treasured and passed on to your great-great grandchildren. My products are custom and of top quality and they are reflecting my service and overall art that I create. Clients fall in love with this process.

I have been shooting professionally for many years, but 2015 to present have been record years in booking, and I am so grateful.  I want to thank my loyal and diverse clients that have made my time as an artist such a beautiful experience. I am always in awe when my brides return to me as new mothers for a newborn session, then return again for a family session. I feel as though I am part of their extended family. And I bet if you asked them, they would agree! I recently moved into a studio in downtown Hammonton

9 South Washington St. Hammonton NJ 08037

You can read all about the studio following this link

Please feel free to browse my galleries to see some of my proudest work, and thank you so much for stopping by!
