Lew Family – Atlanta, Georgia Family Photographer

Merry Christmas Eve!!!

Shelli Allen Photography is extremely thankful for all the wonderful families and clients that have allowed Shelli to capture your memories in 2014! The many, many photo sessions leading up to the holidays have been awesome. Our hearts swell with pride!

Each year, there are new clients that light our lives by developing new relationships with Shelli Allen Photography. And each year, there are the fantastic folks Shelli has had the opportunity to capture year after year.

The Lew Family featured here is one of those families that are not just clients but are definitely friends. The love they possess for their children and their happiness is so evident on each of their smiling faces. Mom and Dad are just as precious as their children. Their joy is infectious.

Shelli Allen Photography has thankfully witnessed your children growing up before the lens of the camera and Shelli truly loves getting to know your family.  Thank you for allowing us the benefit of being a part of your lives and capturing your best moments throughout the year.

We are blessed.


Comer Family – 30A Florida and Birmingham Alabama Family Photographer

The Holidays are HERE!  And Shelli Allen Photography has been working incredibly hard on photos, Christmas cards, and making memories for years to come.

The Comer family is just one of our awesome families Shelli has had the joy of capturing this season.

 With a single glance, you can’t help but want to jump right in the picture with their fun and laughter!!

Here’s to setting sail on Christmas cards, holiday events and all the fun in between!



Schnatmeier Family – Atlanta and Marietta Georgia Photographer

This little trio warms our heart.

Shelli has been photographing the Schnatmeier family for many years. Each year, Shelli collaborates with mom on location and clothing and each year they show up in the cutest outfits… well coordinated but not too matchy-matchy. We think they basically look like they stepped out of the pages of a magazine spread or lookbook.

Of course, their mom, Ali has a great eye. It is evident that her kiddos are taking after her great taste.  Effortlessly cool and casually sophisticated, that’s how we’d describe this group.

To make matters even more significant, this family’s sweet, long-time family pet passed away not too long after our photoshoot. You can see just how much she was loved in the last pic.  How wonderful it was to have this special moment captured with the kids and their beloved dog. Rest in peace sweet Dixie!


Stephanie Carter – 30A Area Photographer

What a precious little man! He’s got style. He’s got swagger. He’s got a pretty talented mom, too!

This cool little guy is proud to call the one and only Stephanie Carter from The Southern Fashion House, “Mamma”.

Most of you are probably familiar with Stephanie Carter’s clothing lines from Judith March or Jaque & Janis. Or maybe you’ve shopped online and in one of the fantastic DejaVu retail stores located in Fairhope, Alabama or Panama City Beach, Florida or Seaside, Florida or Key West, Florida. Recently, Stephanie and The Southern Fashion House partnered with Missy Robertson of Duck Dynasty on a new line of clothing.

I mean, this Mamma is one busy lady!  And, basically, if you are a Southern gal, you’ve heard of one of these fun spirited lines of clothing / shopping options from Stephanie Carter. (You probably have one of her dresses hanging in your closet!)

It’s no wonder that her son has the same fantastic style as mom. But, on top of that, he is a really fun-loving little boy who loves all things little boys enjoy.

Shelli had such a fun time capturing the moment with this little guy.  We think he would be a perfect model one day!! Don’t you?


Drinkwater – Alabama Children and Family Photographer


Today, I bring you my very best friend in this big world, Kristy Ellis Drinkwater, and her HIP family!


Drinkwater Family 1

Kristy is a Fine Artist, Owner, and Creative Director at Counterpart Brand & Design, LLC.  Adam is the real estate broker at Landmark Realty in Troy, Alabama.

They are truly two of the most talented  people I know and I feel so honored to have Kristy as graphic designer for Shelli Allen Photography.

Most of her work is behind the scenes, but you better believe she KILLS it!


The setting was under a bridge.  Kristy and I planned and styled beforehand to ensure we were on our A-game for that day.

Then the actual shoot was all fun and play.  I was more behind the scenes while they just had a little party under the bridge!


My favorite part of the shoot was engaging with these 2 little youngins!  Lola was a little Mama and constantly wanted to help me to make sure Joe was on task.

Joe is a high energy little stinker and it took all I could to keep the camera still while photographing him because I was laughing so hard.  Kristy and Adam just sat back and shook their heads!
