I'm Ali, and this is a rare photo of me not lounging with my cats or plotting my next tattoo.
I fell in love early with the concept of storytelling.
When I was little, I would be reading at least 6 books at once, at all times. I loved the way a character went from a stranger to a dear friend of mine that I knew everything about--
all I had to do was turn the pages.
My obsession with characters quickly turned into a passion for people. I found that, just like in my books, people can go from strangers to close friends, all you have to do is learn their stories, what the building blocks are that make them who they are.
I fell in love with how humans interact with one another; their passions, what makes their eyes light up, the things that make them ecstatic or nostalgic. It reminded me of the characters in my books.
It was only a matter of time until a camera found its way into my life. I realized I could help tell people's deeply intimate stories with the click of a button.
10 years later & I fall more in love with photography every day.
One more thing you should know....
I don't take my job lightly.
Being in front of the camera can be terrifying, thrilling and incredibly vulnerable.
I view each of my clients as people with stories that deserve to be captured and told to everyone around them.
Your story is important, I would be honored to help tell it.
