AliMae is a combination of both my girls names who are my inspiration on this photography journey. Alista Marie, my oldest who is 11 and goes by Ali and then Myla Mae, my larger than life personality 2 year old. I pondered for a long time whether to call my photography business "Tonya Richardson Photography" because it's what
the so-called experts everyone else in the business was advising in order to "brand" yourself for marketing purposes but, it just didn't click for me and let's be honest, Richardson is a ridiculously very long name. Several friends and family mentioned AliMae and I just never could get it out of my head...and that was my sign to just go with it. They are, after all, my favorite subjects. :)
So here are a few of my very favorite pictures of my girls.
