About

It's Wonderful to Meet You!

I'm Alison Heckard, of Bird in Flight Photography. I'm inspired by my family, the perfect sunrise, and a strong cup of coffee. My gratitude for life’s most beautiful moments drew me to a career in photography, and my unique artistic perspective has given me the pleasure of being trusted by families across New England.

My studio name reflects my photography style: organic, candid, and compelling. I use natural light and striking textures to capture your most important moments in a way that allows your family’s personality to shine through. By focusing on the smallest details and preserving them for a lifetime, together we are able to capture the moments that show how your family began, and continues to grow through the years.

I accept a limited number of clients in order to maintain the highest level of quality in each session, and to make you my top priority from consultation to delivery. Each image is hand-edited individually, turning it into a beautiful piece of art as unique as your family, and all products have been thoroughly researched to ensure that they will preserve your memories for years to come.

Life is an awfully big adventure …

Kind Words

“Alison is a delight to work with. She is a talented photographer but–just as importantly–she had a warm personality which makes you more comfortable and makes your pictures come out even better. I found her to be a top-notch professional: responsive, flexible, and very accommodating to my personal preferences…Virtually nothing about my experience was rigid and she was open to any suggestions I had, which I really appreciated. You can tell that she makes the experience totally unique for each of her clients. At the same time, when I didn’t have ideas and asked her to make decisions as the expert, she came through.”
