Hi. I'm Holly McAlister, my 9 to 5 is as a CPA. Being an accountant automatically qualifies you for the nerd club, but that's totally okay with me. I will whole-heartedly admit my love for a good spreadsheet. Because I'm detail oriented, I am able to plan out a great session, and also create artistic images.
I love a good story. I always admire anyone who can tell one well. Everyone has a story, and I believe everyone is important. Whether you're the family that spends its weekends at baseball tournaments, or a graduating senior who loves music, your story is worth telling,
What's my story? I grew up in St. Louis, and have my own home nestled right down the road from both my mom and my sister. In 2015, I became a foster parent, and currently have two sisters placed with me. Family is super important to me, and I treat all of my clients as if they are my own family.
I love creating and telling people's stories through photography. I believe each person is known and loved by God, and created in His image. Caring for people is what makes me come alive. Whether that's talking to a toddler for a few minutes before a session so she gets used to me, or finding out about your family so we really pick a good location that fits your family. I treasure capturing laughter and those intimate moments on camera, and my main goal it to make you feel comfortable. At the heart of what I do is celebrating you, your life, your relationships, and your passions.
You have a story. You are important. I'd be honored if you'd let me be a part of telling your story.
