"Debbie did such an amazing job photographing our family last summer! We explained to her that we never wanted to get a “studio” family portrait done – but it was important for us to capture these very precious moments in our lives. Children grow so fast and we really wanted photographs that not only capture who they are but also photographs that they too will find priceless when they are older. She not only understood what we were looking for, but suggested the perfect setting for our pictures. Her photographs preserved a period in our lives that all agree passes too quickly. We would HIGHLY recommend her. She is so patient, talented and so comfortable to be around. We are constantly receiving compliments from our friends and neighbors on the photographs! Debbie is remarkable."

"The pictures seem to capture those quiet moments that you see everyday, but certainly don't have a camera in hand to photograph. Thank you for making the session very relaxing, and being so good with all of the kids. We are all very anxious to see the proofs, and by the looks of things, it's going to be hard to pick our favorites!!!!!"

"Debbie's gift is her uncanny ability to capture her subjects at their most relaxed and beautiful. Children warm to her gaze and grown-ups do too. We love the joie de vivre and playfulness she conveyed in our family portraits, and admire her unique talent for framing her images in the tranquility of the natural setting. We'll cherish these pictures!"

"We have been working with Debbie for three years now and are always extremely pleased with her fabulous photographs! The children look forward to our photo sessions each year. Debbie's warmth and patience makes for an instant connection with them. She works around their interests and photographs moments in their most natural state. We are always amazed with how she captures the energy and true expressions of our very busy toddler!! Her enthusiasm for her work is evident in her attention to the finest details and we are always impressed by her professionalism. Her beautiful photos will be cherished keepsakes for years to come. We will always be grateful to her giving us such wonderful family memories." Tara and Rob

"It was a pleasure having Debbie Allan in our home. The feeling of the photo session was of having a family friend over, who happened to be a professional photographer. Sipping on coffee and chatting about our families, it was a calming, relaxing experience that produced beautiful pictures that we will view forever. The most impressive part for us was how Debbie put us all at ease. She was so gentle with our newborn, and connected with our 2 year-old son, holding his attention throughout. Creating this sort of atmosphere, she produces brilliant photos. I would recommend her work to everyone, and have already!

Debbie thanks for your beautiful and thoughtful work!"

Dear Debbie,

We loved the experience of watching the slideshow with you and on the big screen. As you saw, I was moved to tears, and Vincenzo too. I am happy we were the first ones to have the preview, as it made it more special :-)

We will buckle down and decide what prints or canvas, or book we want and let you know right away. So many beautiful ones to choose from.

You are truly talented and we feel so fortunate to have found you when we did to immortalize the first days of our precious daughter Sofia.

I will always be a big fan!!

We will be in touch soon.

All the best,

Cynthia

Debbie did a fantastic engagement shoot for us. We were both a little nervous going into it, but she instantly made us feel totally comfortable, and that really came through in how effortless and natural the photos came out. We love all the photos she took, and by the end of the shoot, it was more like spending time with old friends than a stuffy photographer.

With Debbie Allan we discovered that we didn’t just hire a photographer to take photos of our newborn son, we invited a caring, patient and nurturing individual to come into our home and provide us with a wonderful family experience all on its own.

Debbie has an incredibly warm and fun personality that really put us at ease, but is also a true professional. She is prepared, punctual, and delivers what she promises. She spent plenty of time with us to ensure that all of our shots were taken without any rush or stress and captured adorable images of our son while being completely open to our wishes and suggestions. Her photos are gorgeous and we are so pleased that we will have such special moments to cherish today and in the future.

We are more than happy with our experience and cannot speak highly enough of Debbie. If you are on the fence about having your newborn photographed, do it, you won’t regret it. If you are looking for the right photographer, you just found her.

Best,

Suzanne and Joe

You will never know how much Nick and I appreciate everything you did to ensure our photographs were spectacular. You made us feel so comfortable. The kids actually had fun during our photo shoot. It was like we were just taking a walk in the park with our family. Debbie, you are a photographer that possesses extreme talent and creative artistry...and overall it's very obvious that you love what you do. I am honored to hang your art on my walls for many, many years to come.

Heartfelt Thanks,

Nick and Tonya

Debbie it was such a great experience working with you. I love the pictures, I wish I could buy them all! Thank you and Happy Holidays.

We are thrilled that Debbie photographed our daughter's 4th birthday party. Debbie's attention to detail accompanied by her artistic touch provided us with wonderful pictures of every aspect of the party. We now have lasting memories of the decorations, the activities, the guests and most importantly of our daughter turning 4.

Debbie has an awesome ability to capture children in all their beauty. The close-ups that Debbie takes capture the essence of our children. We used a beautiful candid shot that Debbie took of our children for our holiday card this past year and received endless compliments. We look forward to engaging Debbie's services again in the near future.

It is always such a joy to have Debbie in my home. She takes superb photographs and captures the child's personality with such ease. What I love most about out sessions with Debbie (apart fom the great company of course!) is that she fits right in with our day. There are no disruptions in our routine. I just hand over the babe, give Debbie some coffee and get right back to my chore of the moment. Annie is happy and content with Debbie and I never, for a moment have any concerns about my baby's happiness or comfort. The end result is always beautiful pictures for me to tuck away in my memory box and treasure forever. Thank you Debbie. I look forward to our next session. x

Debbie is a talented photographer with a great eye for detail. She has been photographing my children for years and is able to capture their true spirit; nothing is staged. I'm always thrilled with the photos and look forward to many more.
