I've been wanting to do a classic pinup shoot for years (before my body gives out on me). I've always thought "Well, maybe someday..." but never made actual plans. After helping with my friend Elena's boudoir shoot at Union 206 Studio, and after seeing the final product, I knew Ali was the person for my shoot.
She created a Pinterest board, and we began pinning (with Elena's help), outfits and poses for the shoot. One of her pins included Santa-themed lingerie, and she asked if I'd be comfortable working that into the session. Since it is was only two weeks from Christmas, I figured I'd have a glass of liquid courage and go for it! I was very anxious in the days leading up to the shoot. I'm not a photogenic person - in fact, the night before my shoot, I spent most of the time photo-bombing group photos at a friend's party.
The day of the shoot arrived, and I was extremely apprehensive. I love doing my hair and makeup, so that part was a lot of fun, but I was really scared about seeing my body in any sort of risqué lingerie. I am comfortable in my skin to an extent, but I have given birth to two boys, so I have my insecurities. Thankfully, I had some great friends in tow, and Ali had a fantastic and easygoing assistant, so I left my insecurities at the door and went for it.
It.Was.A.BLAST!
We listened to Ali's 40's playlist for a while (inspiration), and we switched to dance music when the dress came off and the corset was laced. I had no clue what I was doing, but Ali knew what she wanted, so she guided me through the poses and made me feel confident and sexy. 2 hours felt like 2 minutes, and before we knew it, we had gone through 6 outfits - everything from a dress, to a bikini, to a bra and pleather hot pants! I loved every minute. I went home feeling proud and confident. Then I woke up and thought "Oh my god...what was I thinking...I hate my body..."
I opened my messages and Ali had already loaded over 100 pictures from the shoot. I began scrolling through the photos anxiously, with my husband at my side. I was absolutely blown away! I looked like a friggin pinup! Even with my imperfections, I saw a side of myself I didn't know existed.
If you've ever thought about doing something like this for yourself, or your significant other, Ali is your girl - please, please go for it! (You wont regret it.)

Ali and I have worked together on multiple projects. My favorite was our boudoir photo shoot at the Union 206 Studio. Ali and I worked together on ideas for the shoot in the weeks leading up to the date so that we both had a good understanding of what we wanted out of the photo shoot. I picked out some poses that I liked, and she showed me the lighting techniques that would be involved in achieving the final product. I came to the shoot armed with several outfits and we were able shoot all of our ideas with time to spare! Ali is very efficient and easy to work with.

One day I called up Ali, I needed a photo of my car on the local race track. She suggested an early morning shoot with the sunrise for perfect lighting. I picked her up at 5am sharp that weekend and we made it in time to use the soft sunrise lighting for very natural looking photos. Ali is really willing to go the extra mile to get the perfect shot. Not many people are willing to get up before sunrise just get perfect lighting! She goes into a photo shoot with a clear game plan, ready to tackle, and the results show!

Ali's love for her work shines through in all of the photos she captures. I highly recommend her for any of your photography needs.

I was the bingo winner at Minis on the Dragon this year! Wouldn't have scheduled a photo shoot under normal circumstances, but I'm so glad that I did this. Alicyn is great and I LOVE the pictures. Will repeat next year for sure!

My photo shoot experience on March 15 was engaging, fun and so importantly, successful. Ali's talent for photography and engaging her clients is remarkable. Ali's creativity and attention to detail truly supported my goal of taking pictures for marketing materials I'm working on for my Zumba instruction business.

I felt comfortable and free to really express my artistic vision during the photo shoot and Ali's planning and execution made that possible. She's got a great personality that seems to magically remove any nervousness or uncertainty from any person is not big on having their pictures taken ...

These pics mean more to me that just visuals for a website. Ali's talent allowed me to see my true self and inner beauty, and I think that is so important for the world to see! I recommend Ali for anyone who wants high-quality photography with fabulous results!

Ali is so much fun to work with! I really hate having my picture taken, but Ali is able to make me feel comfortable and relax. She knows how to pose me so that the pictures are flattering and look natural. She is very professional while having fun. Her pictures are always gorgeous!

Thanks Ali for the great photo session for my professional and casual headshots. The photos are great! Perfect for my use. I love them - which is something, because I am so critical of myself in photos. I am not a big fan of getting my photo taken either, but I have to admit...I had a lot of fun in the session. Yes, it was actually fun! You have a way of putting people at ease while tuning in to whatever makes the photo work so well...and you work quickly. Thanks also for advice on the type of clothing to wear - texture and color. I never would have thought that would make a difference. And for make up tips and moving the hair out of my face! The added bonus of the photo with my dog and my feet was also a highlight. We now have that photo hanging in our foyer and ordered the mugs. I wish you much success in your photography business. Your love of it shows through in you and the photos that you produce. It was a pleasure working with you. Thanks again.

Ali Drew is my go to photographer. When my family needed photos done, we asked her first, because we know she is the best. I've done a few shoots with just her and I and I think she really makes the shoot special. We always have a fun time shooting. I count on her to produce quality photos, and an amazingly fun time!

It was wonderful getting my headshots taken by Ali. She has a great eye and was able to pick out perfect spots in a one block radius from where I worked. Ali's lively personality contributed to me naturally smiling during the entire shoot which resulted in great pictures (in my humble opinion).

My husband I and I have worked with Ali a couple times now. She is very competent and professional but at the same time, is incredibly fun and thinks outside the box. We can be a bit silly sometimes and she doesn't blink an eye. I've seen her take a mid-afternoon setting on a cabin porch and with her skills of lighting, timing and placement, turn it into a different world...
