New Website!

I am SUPER pleased to show off my brand new bliggity blog, designed by Gloria of Little White Whale. Gloria did an incredibly lovely job of catching my scrambled vision for my new little home on the Internet and I’m so excited about it!

The new blog can be found at www.alisondunnphotography.com, so make sure you head over there to stay updated on my newest shoots and adventures.

Spring Trip to Philadelphia!

As I mentioned, last weekend, Kealan and I drove up to Philadelphia for a little reunion with some Philadelphians (and one Nashvillian). Of course, whenever I say Kealan and I drove anywhere, I mean that Kealan drove and I pushed the button that reclines your seat so that you can take naps. Apparently some people think that if I drive, the trip will take twice as long. I think that some people are just jealous about not getting to take naps..

A little picture tour of our trip:

We visited Franklin Square.

And Elfreth’s Alley.
I made mental plans to casually move into to one of the houses when no one is looking.

We got a little sun at the Race Street Pier.

And we grabbed a few pictures after church on Sunday. Colored pants galore!

And then, “we” drove back to good ol’ Maryland. “We” also napped. Catch you next time, Phillydelph!

Happy (Almost) Valentine’s Day!

As promised, a little (big!) giveaway to shake February up a little bit. It’s a baby alpaca!

Just kidding, if I had an alpaca I definitely wouldn’t be giving it away.

I AM, however, giving away a full portrait session for one lucky winner, and a friend or date of their choice! I’m pretty excited to photograph you and your bestie, sweetheart, or alpaca.

Eastern Market Foodie Adventures

Yesterday I got an almost-impromptu visit from one of my favorite homegirls, Miss Becca. She and I took advantage of the confused January sun to adventure down to Eastern Market, my new favorite farmer’s market. We got to meet one of our favorite bloggers, Taza, and she was nice as could be and thankfully was not creeped out at all when we told her that we decided to go to Eastern Market because she recommended it on her blog.

Becca and I squealed a little bit like fangirls when we saw her. It’s okay.

After Eastern Market, we had a nice long lunch at Le Pain Quotidien and topped off our day with a little Pitango, because Taza also recommended we go there. Personally. Squeal.
