Allison Cordner has been redefining how portraiture is seen and experienced. Her strengths are working and relating to people of all ages. Not a single subject has been able to keep their guard up while exposed to Allison's seamless, jovial, energetic and accommodating attitude. Photographing the ‘un-photographable’ is a challenge she loves. Allison’s ability to document the innocence, purity and emotion between couples & families & to bring out the essence of the portrait client are her signature skills. The experience of the portrait session transcends to the final portrait leaving you with an experience to remember and powerful images as reminders. I am trauma sensitive meaning I work with clients who have a history of abuse and trauma to create a safe and sensitive environment.
Connected Portrait Sessions are for everyone! Families, couples of all ages, & individuals looking to feel a higher sense of emotional connection. I lead you through a photographic experience that leads you to a stronger sense of joy, bonding, and self love.
Are you in business and looking to develop or update your online & printed brand? I have specialized in image branding companies of all sizes for over 12 years. I have began to focus in on the wellness industry as our vision and goals are aligned. I can also help new and budding therapists create their homepage and image content to suit your business.

The Signature Portrait is highest level of luxury in our offerings. This commissioned painted portrait is a bespoke hand painted & embellished portrait on canvas, framed and silver/gold leafed by a master antique restoration artist from France.
A high end offering that is unique to Canada.

These hauntingly beautiful portraits are painstakingly crafted instantaneously in front of the client using an old 8x10 camera, chemicals and dark box. Absolutely one-of-a-kind very specialised commission.

Nous avons eu le plaisir de bénéficier du haut professionnalisme d’Allison Cordner à plusieurs reprises, incluant deux séances photographiques et les montages subséquents. Elle a haussé la photographie au niveau de l’art. Métaphores, lumières, couleurs, sentiments, joie. Le résultat a hautement impressionné tout le monde. Elle a été bien dédiée et a bien alloué assez de temps nécessaire. D’un point de vue technique, aussi, elle nous a impressionné avec les équipements et les accessoires mais aussi avec la haute métrise des dernières technologies IT et photo. Dans un mot : talentueuse!
Allison did an excellent job of photographing us since our couple session pre-marriage and subsequently both of our children . Not only did the pictures turn out great, she was able to match the style with our personalities and turn a collection of pictures into a story. She made us feel completely comfortable with being photographed so that we were relaxed and able to have a good time, not to mention the odd joke from added to an experience that was much enjoyable! Allison is also very professional and prompt when it comes to editing and publishing the pictures. This with her exceptional talent and great personality made her an excellent choice as photographer and well worth the investment. You will not be disappointed!

If you are looking for something unique and individualized, go to Allison. She is a joy to work with.
