    Love your pics S-N-L. Would like to have you take a few of boys this spring playing flag and this fall playing tackle. Also, if it is not too much. At some point (hopefully this spring or summer)take a few more of the boys & I, them together, & individual.
    Have Fun & Keep Shooting=o)

    Hi Allison! I was doing some snooping around on 365 and came across your name. (congrats on top 20 this week btw)
    I followed a link to this site and I had to let you know how amazing it is. Your photos are gorgeous and I love your ‘from where I stand’ series. Fav’s? Kill Room and Nice Underwear :)
    Keep up the creativity, you should be proud!

    Hi Allison,
    Can you please share with me how you learned about photography & editing and any recommendations you might have for an aspiring photographer? I received a Nikon D3100 as a gift one year ago and am still struggling to get out of AutoMode. I revere your photos and your talent and would really like to learn the best ways to capture my children as stunningly as you capture yours.
    Thank you so very much.

    Hi GenevaGirl – if you would leave me your email, I’d be glad to send you a message!

    Hi there I know you mentioned you own several lenses but I am always interested in photog faves and why. I usually shoot with my 50 mm 1.4 and 24-70 2.8 canon lenses and am entertaining the thought of another lense and was thinking of maybe a wide angle prime, fish eye, or macro. Just wondered what your faves are

    • Allison says:

      Hi Amie! I love my fisheye, it’s a fun lens to have :) I also have an 85 that I love, but it’s a tight fit indoors for me. I have a macro too, but rarely use it because the focus is so difficult to get right. I’d say maybe a fisheye! I have a 28 prime, but I really only use it outdoors, or when I want to capture a wide area inside. I use my 50 the most :)

      • Thanks so much for responding. I think I will go with a Fisheye it will allow for lots more creativity :) I adore your pictures and purchased your CM breakout. I am looking for frames :)

    Hey! Ran across you thru clickin moms. Love your photos!! One question: what effect are you post processing your photos with? Particularly the ones with your girls. They almost have a sunny haze to them. I love that effect but it always seems too much when I try to do it. Thanks :)

  7. Sherry James says:

    I love your post processing also! Please let know how you achieve this too!

  8. Kate says:

    I would love to learn about your post processing as well. Snippets is my new favorite blog!

    Hi Allison. I love your blog! I’m curious, if you wouldn’t mind to share, what is the name of the font you used for your blog header? (or is it your own handwriting?) If it’s a digital font I’d love to use something like that on my digital scrapbooking pages. :) PS- love your “from where i stand” photos — sooo darn creative! Keep up the great work…it’s so inspiring!!

  10. Taylor says:

    Hi Allison, I just found your blog and I am so inspired! Would you mind sharing the name of the font you used in your blog header? It’s adorable and I’d love to use something like that for my digital scrapbooking. PS- love your “from where I stand” photo series…really neat and inspiring. Keep up the great work!

  13. Hi, Allison,

    My class has been perusing your photos this week. Tomorrow I’ll hear from them which photos they’ve selected; I’ll have them contact you to let you know. This coming week they’ll have to post their stories to their brand new blog sites; they’d like permission to post your photo that prompted their story to their site, with credit to you, and links back to Snippets.

    Hi Allison

    I’m in Dana’s class and was hoping that I could use your picture “five going on fifteen” for my short story. You can email me the picture at anatsios15@gmail.com. I also have really enjoyed looking through your sites photos!

      Hi Allison

      Its under 365+1 under march and april and its a little girl with adult high heels hanging off her feet. Hope that helps


  15. Olivia Pollock says:

    Hi Allison,

    I’m from Dana’s class as well and I was wondering if I could use one of your ‘Jeeping’ pictures. I also drive a Jeep so I especially loved these pictures. I wasn’t able to find a name but it was under the category called, ‘I got talked into it again’ and it is the picture in the bar with pool cues and all the dollar bills on the wall. If you could email me at opt3@wildcats.unh.edu that would be great. Love the site!!

    Thank you,
    Olivia Pollock

    Hello! I’m from Dana’s class and was wondering if I could use your photo of the bachelorette crown. It is under 365+1 under July/August. http://www.snippetsfromsuburbia.com/2012/366Project/189of366.jpg. I believe that is the correct link to the photo! All the photos you take are absolutely beautiful! It was tough choosing just one. My e-mail is smm323@wildcats.unh.edu , hope to hear from you soon!

    Thank you so much,
    Steph Peltak

    Hi Allison,

    I am also a student in Dana’s class. I was hoping I could have you e-mail me a photo from ‘a day in the life’. It’s the photo of the man washing and drying his white car. My e-mail is: chasebaroody@yahoo.com

  19. I was getting lost in your pictures when I realized I had to choose one for class! These pictures are so much a narrative already that they screamed to be the starting point of a story. I would like, if I may, to use your picture at this link, http://www.snippetsfromsuburbia.com/2012/366Project/151of366.jpg, the sun coming through the glass is great.
    Thank you for the pictures,

    Thank you!

  25. Hi Allison. I am another person in love with your processing. It is just completely perfect. I remember at some point you shared a post on CM and shared some of your process, and I now can’t find it. Any way you could give me some advice/clues/hints?

  26. Eloisa Young says:

    Hello Allison. I am absolutely amazed by your photos. Do you think you could kindly share how you edit your photos. Simply breath taking! Also tips on shooting manually??

    • Allison says:

      Hi Eloisa — I like to lower the contrast on my photos often and also will add a filter over the top of yellow or blue or sometimes just white with a very low opacity. I shoot in RAW and process in both Adobe Camera Raw and Photoshop CS6. My advice for shooting manual is to learn how the different settings affect each other and practice a TON! I’m a member of a very cool forum (mostly consisting of moms who are photographers) called Clickinmoms.com — it’s WONDERFUL for learning and growing your photography!

    You are truly a blessing:)
