As a self proclaimed happy hobbyist, Allison minimally explored photography in her college years but didn’t get serious about it until 2004. Since then, she has completed several 365 projects and enjoys documenting her family, husband and two daughters, with a lifestyle approach. Ideally her days would be spent with friends and family, coffee, chips and salsa, and of course her camera, a Nikon d700, and assortment of Nikon lenses, mostly primes.

    Wow, this was one of my very favorite CM posts. My favorite pictures are the ones that capture the beautiful mundane moments of every day life. I’ve never seen anything quite like yours! WOW!

    The color of your black and white photographs are my favorite. Do you run an action on each one? Or do you change each of them in Photoshop? Any tips you can give me would be wonderful! I’m not a photographer but I love taking pictures of my children. Thank you!!

      Hi Angela! I am a serial photo-shopper. I make adjustments in ACR, open in CS4, and then convert if I’m doing B&W. For these, I did a very simple and very unsophisticated conversion – converted to grayscale, added a little matte affect (in curves, anchor the lowest gridcrossing by clicking and then drag up the bottom line just a tad) and then I added a low-opacity warming filter :) Really, really not sophisticated at all!

      • Angela
        Feb 15 2013 at 10:40 pm #

        Awesome! I think I can do that. I make my adjustments in lightroom and then I have CS4 too, so I’m going to try this tonight. I really liked the matte look and the low-opacity warming. Honestly my favorite black and whites ever. Your pictures are amazing. Thanks for sharing.

  43. Feb 10 2013 at 10:50 am #

    wow, this is an amazing documentary of your day!! I love how you incorporated your furry kids as well as your human kind!! <3 Lovely work Allison!!

    Oh wow, Allison – these images are so amazing! You totally capture the ordinary in such a beautiful and unique way. I love your work!

  45. Feb 12 2013 at 6:01 pm #

    I so need to do this! What great photos. I’m sure she’ll love looking back on this day 20 years from now.
