2022 in Review

2022 year in review. Alison Bell, Photographer

2022 in Review | Virginia Beach Photographer

I had no idea what 2022 would bring when I was cancelling Cherry Blossom Mini sessions because of a late freeze in March that killed my favorite Saucer Magnolias.

It might have been a rocky start.

From Cherry Blossom minis to Joint Women’s Leadership Symposium, and the largest extended families I’ve ever photographed, and photographing my first USMC Ball, 2022 was a record year!

Commence Eric Church song in your head!

2022 Included:

7 Military Ceremonies

35 Families

15 Extended families

75 Mini Sessions

…and I dare not even try to count how many individual faces I photographed! But I might try to keep a tally for 2023!

Enjoy this video of most of those sessions!

HEY! I'm Alison, Your Fun And Hilarious Family & Newborn Photographer!

I'm a South Carolina native, USMC spouse, and recovering homeschool mama of a four boy circus. Bring me your crazy!

After 11 years of photographing families all over the world, I've realized my clients aren't printing their images. We go through all this work to get dressed, coordinated and then let those photos die on the hard drive.

No more!

There's nothing easy about family photos but I'm here to help you with every step from what to wear to printed in your hands whether thats an album or wall art. I want you to Make your people the rock star of your house!

You'll be reminded of what really matters every day when you see the giant prints of your crew laughing on your walls every. single. day.

Currently stationed in Virginia Beach, Virginia photographing families all over the Hampton Roads area from Suffolk, Norfolk, Chesapeake and the Eastern Shore all the way to Portsmouth and Elizabeth City!

I find joy in chaos. The louder, the better! I'm a USMC spouse, South Carolina native, recovering homeschool mama of a 4 boy circus. They've taught me the most important facet of family photography: KEEP IT FUN!
