"We originally hired Ali for our homebirth, then we learned about a devastating diagnosis at our anatomy scan, limiting our babies life to a few short hours on earth. Ali showed so much compassion and still offered her services even though the plans dramatically changed. We had a scheduled date for our sons arrival but he came a week early. She was there on such short notice and produced the most beautiful video. Birth videos are such a unique art in and of themselves, but being that our time with our son was so short and pictures/videos are the memories we have to look back on, this gift means everything. She perfectly captured the dance of grief and joy throughout the day in the hospital and all of our kids personalities. This is something we will truly cherish forever. Thank you Ali! I highly recommend her services to anyone in the birth world"
"Ali was amazing. She created a casual atmosphere where we could just function like a family while she captured the moments. I always feel so awkward in front of a camera, but this was actually quite lovely. AND, the pictures are just amazing. I will absolutely use her again!"
"I loved my photo shoot with Ali so much! I had been wanting mommy & me photos for a long time but I was always hesitant because my baby has serious stranger danger. But when I met Ali I immediately knew she’d be the perfect photographer with her calm, kind, and relaxed energy. The shoot went perfectly, my baby never showed anxiety, Ali was so professional and respectful and she listened to what we were looking for- our photos came out so beautiful! I cried when I saw our gallery. I can’t recommend Ali enough."
"Had a mother daughter photoshoot with Ali when my daughter was about 5 months & BEST DECISION EVER! Ali is the absolute best! The photos are so beautiful, she makes you feel so comfortable, & captures not only the most stunning photos but the memories of real life. The moments you want to cherish & look back at! If you are considering Moon Bloom for a photoshoot, do it, you won't regret it!"
"We really appreciated Ali's patience and kindness.... we've never had photos done in our home before and now I don't think I'll do them anywhere else."
"Ali is such a talented photographer. She came to our home to take family pictures and did a fabulous job at making us feel at ease and natural in front of the camera, despite none of us having had these types of pictures taken before. Our two year old is a little shy at first, as I'm sure a lot of toddlers are, but that didn't keep her from being able to capture very sweet candid pictures of us. We will definitely use her services again and highly recommend her for anyone looking to capture these precious moments of life."
"Ali was amazing to work with. She has such an ease and calm to her and made my children feel so comfortable. She rolls with anything and I love the quality and tone of her photos- they are art!"
