BELOW IS OUR FORMULA FOR CREATING A PHOTO SHOOT CLIENTS CAN FULLY ENGAGE IN AND FULLY ENJOY
We provide a range of services, from traditional portraiture to editorial fashion-geared photo shoots for women and children. During your consultation we will chat about what your dream shoot looks like, what kind of products you're interested in creating, and what types of images speak to you.
We provide advice on how to select a wardrobe flattering to your age, your body, our studio lighting, and your type of shoot. We offer tips on how to prepare your outfits for your shoot, and how to effortlessly and naturally coordinate with your loved ones.
HAIR & SKIN PREP
We include advice on how to prep your skin, hair, and face so you can arrive at your shoot fully prepared and ready to have fun.
HAIR + MAKEUP SERVICES
We partner with Philadelphia's most sought after hair and makeup artists. Hair and makeup services are provided at our studio.
PHOTOSHOOT + POSING
There is no worrying about how to pose in front of the camera in our studio — we've got you covered. Allie teaches and fully guides you through your shoot, showing you how to pose and stand confidently in front of the camera.
Every client receives professional retouching on their 10 best photographs. Images are hand-selected and hand edited by Allie.
Return to our studio 3 weeks after your shoot to view your images for the first time. You will be able to take home matted prints on the day of your reveal, and will be able to place custom orders for enlargements and museum-grade giclee prints. There is no hard sell—we simply create stunning images of you, and you choose which ones you want to bring home— it's that easy.
what our clients say about their portrait experience...
"Prepare to be wowed, Allie Brown is like none other. Allie possesses an unmatched talent to tell your story from the lens of her camera. Allie was prepared, patient and FUN to work with."
"Her style is refreshing; dripping with class and a quiet confidence. While many possess the technical skills required to be a photographer, Allie Brown has the 'it' factor so many photographers can only dream of. The memories of our family captured by Allie will be cherished for a lifetime."
"When I was looking to get updated pictures of our girls I asked my friends who they recommended. They all said Allie Brown!! They all said its more than hiring someone to come take pictures, it's a true experience. They all fondly called it the Allie Brown Experience. I personally don't like getting my pictures done. I always feel awkward and I'm my own worst critic of pictures of myself. Right away when we got started with Allie I felt like a professional model. She told me how to rest my face, and what to do until I got the hang of it. I remember the feeling of just having fun, and feeling beautiful and confident for the first time ever in front of a camera. It was so uplifting!!"
"After seeing some amazing work we took the plunge and tried the "Allie Brown experience." She was able to capture my family, including our fur kids beautifully. Allie is very unique, her work extraordinary. Her eye for detail shows in every portrait. I would use her again and recommend her to anyone that wants beautiful pictures!"
"I have been lucky enough to have the “Allie Brown Experience” twice. I noticed all of these beautiful, artistic shots of my friend’s families popping up and knew that this was a special thing. I reached out to Allie and was greeted with sweetness and professionalism from the get go. Allie was upfront about pricing, how to be prepare, and mostly set us at ease with the thought of trying to get everyone to smile at the same time. What we got was so much different and inspiring than anything I have ever seen. She photographed my younger sister, my two children and myself. I love seeing these photos in my house because they show a lightness my sister brought with her when she came to visit us. The candid shots of us laughing and my kids being serious are memories that are forever treasured."
"My Allie Brown experience was nothing short of magic! From the moment we started shooting I felt comfortable and beautiful. Allie helped me choose ideas that were unique to myself but added in a twist of high fashion that only she can bring! To this day the photos that Allie took are my all time favorite, absolutely breathtaking. She makes me feel and look like I could grace the pages of Vogue. I recommend Allie Brown to everyone who wants a unique and intimate experience!"
"I contacted Allie to shoot family pictures when my husband was sent home early from a deployment due to a cancer diagnosis. I’ll admit that I just wanted pictures of us all together to ease my worry and Allie delivered. She was patient and kind with him when she knew he was tired and ready to be done. She took amazing shots that I cherish and will always have a place in wherever home is for us. If you are lucky enough to take part of the Allie Brown Experience, know that it is a wonderful opportunity for you to see your family from the outside looking in."
"Allie was such a natural that we never even thought to be nervous about the sessions. Plus, she knew just how to get our little man to pose for a shot. We were absolutely thrilled with her work."
"Perfection from beginning to end! We had a hectic schedule at the time, and Allie found a way to make ours work with hers. She had an amazing studio, didn't rush the shoot, and had a way about her that was welcoming. The 'experience' wasn't over there - when the photos arrived, the packing was beautiful!"
"Allie had a way of capturing the innocence and personality of our 3 and 5 year olds without directing them. I feel like the pictures captured them perfectly because they were just being happy little girls. They loved Allie and couldn't wait for her to take more pictures of them. She made them feel comfortable and safe so they were able to just be themselves and you can see that in the pictures. All in all I have nothing but positive things to say---and I'm more than satisfied with the way the pictures came out, they take up a whole wall in our house! When you book a photo shoot be ready for a amazing time making memories while capturing memories all at once. It truly is a Allie Brown Experience!!!"
"Allie Brown has photographed me on three different occasions, each occasion being in a completely different style, for a different reason in a different location. Every time her photos have turned out so miraculous I could hardly believe it was me in them. She was able in once instance to make a dream of mine come true, to literally create the vision I had in my mind, which is something that I find impossible in most cases. She has given us beautiful snapshots of memories that we will treasure forever."
"We absolutely loved Allie. She is such a natural, and so down-to-earth that she completely melted through our photo-session angst. She really drew the best shots out of my family. It was fascinating to watch her process. To us, she was the perfect blend of artist and professional, incorporating such an artistic vision into a very well run photo session."
