Hi, I'm Ally!

I'm a Conroe Birth and Storytelling Photographer who fell in love with freezing tender moments in time to hold onto forever.


I have been TherE...

I understand motherhood is the most challenging, beautiful, and rewarding journey there is. After my son was born, I battled postpartum depression and it's heartbreaking to admit I don't remember very many moments from his first year of life. In the midst of all the hard, I picked my camera up to document the fleeting details like his tiny feet, his gummy smile, and the way he relaxed in my embrace. Years later, those photos are so special to me because when I look back I reminisce on those first moments and how precious they were. But, I still wish I had more of us together instead of me being the one behind the camera.


Photography is one of the only investments that gains value as time passes. I remember when my mom pulled the box from the top of her closet full of memories she had saved on film. Although I may not remember every event, I can see the joy she felt watching me experience everything for the first time. Being a Mom myself, I have no doubt those days were full of obstacles, but all I see as her daughter is the way she took care of me. I look forward to sharing a similar moment with my children one day when they have their own families. We take family photos at least once a year, and I am overcome by emotion when I see them. I want my babies to have images of their parents to look back on and remember how loved they are. Because, when the mess is cleaned up and the house is quiet at night, all your children remember is how much fun they had with their Mama.


MY WHY

PHOTOGRAPHY GREW INTO MORE THAN A HOBBY AFTER MY SON WAS BORN. I WAS A FIRST-TIME MAMA FOLLOWING MY BABY AROUND WITH MY CAMERA JUST TO CAPTURE AS MUCH OF THIS SEASON I COULD BEFORE IT DRIFTED AWAY. HE WILL NEVER BE AS LITTLE AS HE IS NOW. I WANTED TO CAPTURE EVERY GIGGLE, NEW SKILL, AND SWEET CUDDLE. I LEARNED HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO CAPTURE THE MILESTONES AND THE LITTLE THINGS. WE DON'T ALWAYS KNOW WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS. LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO MISS ANY MOMENT. I WILL FOREVER CHERISH THE PHOTOS I HAVE OF MY LITTLE FAMILY & I CANNOT WAIT TO LOOK BACK YEARS FROM NOW AND REPLAY THOSE SWEET MEMORIES. I DREAMED ABOUT THE IMPACT I COULD HAVE ON OTHER FAMILIES THROUGH THE STORYTELLING THAT IS PHOTOGRAPHY. WHEN A FRIEND TRUSTED ME TO PHOTOGRAPH THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF HER FIRST BABY, I LEARNED JUST HOW CLOSE PHOTOGRAPHY IS TO MY HEART. I WANT TO REMIND OTHERS HOW BEAUTIFUL AND UNIQUE THEY ARE. I CREATED ALLY DAVIS PHOTOGRAPHY TO BRING JOY TO OTHERS THROUGH CREATING AND CAPTURING AUTHENTIC MEMORIES.
