cleveland family photographer

If you are:
Tired of fake smiles,
Worried your kids will be uncooperative,
Stressed over finding outfits each time you book a session,

Then you're in the right place...

I've got you covered.

As a maternity, newborn and family photographer in Northeast Ohio, I am dedicated to preserving your memories with imagination, ingenuity and laugher. My goal is being able to capture the moments within the chaos. I guide you and your family into being immersed in your bond and love for each other. 

As for myself, I run on chaos and coffee. I have a toddler and a baby, so when I tell you I get it, I really do! I understand kids can make your heart overflow and cause you to want to pull your hair out at the same time. I get that it's hard to wrangle them up and even harder to make them smile. Lucky for you, I am here to guide you and capture those moments in between for you to cherish forever through FUN sessions without forced smiles. Cheers (with coffee that's already been reheated twice because kids)!


I'm Alison!


For families who want


In addition to digital files, I offer framed wall art and albums so you can appreciate the art we create together daily. Your story isn't meant to be lost on a computer, they deserve to be printed!

“Alison was easy going and a joy to work with. She treated my son like one of her own and interacted with him from start to finish, which made him enjoy our newborn session. She got the little details of the baby I wouldn't think to capture and even got a great photo of my husband reading to my son. I will forever cherish these moments."

"I definitely recommend Christella Photography. Alison is a kind, patient and talented photographer. She did my maternity and newborn photo sessions. My labor was tough, and we had a lot of unplanned events coming up, but Alison worked with us to get our newborn session done. Highly recommend!"
