A Chat with Allyson Washington Photography
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I photograph and record everything, so I understand the need to capture memories. I also feel that every family deserves to do so without going broke in the process. And for aspiring models, a photo shoot shouldn’t cost a fortune. I aim to be an affordable photographer in today’s tough economy.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
When I first started out, I worked for a fashion photographer who charged an arm and a leg for photo shoots. It wasn’t fair, and I thought that people were getting cheated. I vowed to start my own affordable business. Plus, I love the happiness that the spontaneity of photo shoots bring to families.
What do you love most about your job?
I love being able to do what I love and photographing people at their happiest. Going into a shoot, be it a wedding or pet portraits, is always a wildly different experience. But the one constant is that people are happy and having a good time. I love the energy.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
“You’re stuck with us as our photographer for the rest of our lives.” Families tend to adopt me. It’s pretty neat.
