THE WAY SHE/HE FEELS INSIDE YOUR WOMB
Your baby's gaze when you're nursing HIM/HER
how they reach for you and you welcome them with warmth & Love
The joy and excitement of a new chapter
the connection and love deepened forever
that makes parenthood such a magical part of life, the ones you'll want to remember forever
Some of my favorite shots
Hi, I’m Alison
I'm 28 and I was born and raised in by the French Riviera. I met my partner Lance in photography school 4 years ago and together we created The Archivers: a wedding and elopement photography duo. But in the summer 2020 I felt called to photograph mothers by myself and completely fell in love with maternity photography.
A few months later Princess of Cups was born.
The experience over everything else. I want you AND me to have a good time together and I'll always make sure you feel good, comfortable and seen as a human being not a model.
Respect is super important to me, it goes along with an open mind and no judgements. Accepting you and your choices, exchanging together with love and kindness, I wouldn't have it any other way.
Photographing your story with honesty, with me, no cheesy or weird poses, I want the photos to look natural and feel reel. I want you to look at the photos and think of the amazing time you had.
Why "Princess of Cups"?
Princess of cups refers to the Tarot. The day I had to decide a name for my maternity work, I had asked the tarot about my photography business for the next year and pulled up that card.
When I looked at the meaning of this card it embodied everything I want to reflect in my maternity work:
" The Princess of Cups is compassionate and caring, warm and responsive. She is at peace with her emotional nature, often highly creative and artistic. In her world, tranquillity and harmony are highly valued."
Oh and icing on the cake: Princess of Cups also often indicate forthcoming pregnancy!
"This photoshoot clearly gave me my self confidence back, when I saw the photos I thought "Wow, is this really me?" I thank Alison for her professionalism, she really knew how to make me confortable and at ease from the get-go, she's really was attentive to me and was able to meet my needs; if you are a mom to be and you want your pregnancy captured I recommend her 100%"
