Allie Cottrill

Allie is a storyteller, her inspiration comes from an optimistic perspective, a whimsical approach to life and unbound imagination. Allie connects not only with the subject but with the entire team to deliver a graphically appealing story that balances beauty and wit seamlessly. Her artistic sensibilities provide her with the ability to celebrate the subject, as well as the surroundings, simultaneously.  Her unique approach to light, space, & environment fuel the passion behind every shoot.

Whether shooting on Cape Cod, the Seattle fishmarket, downtown Shanghai, Hyde Park in London, or in New York City, Allie’s confidence and ease make her feel at home. Allie’s background as an art director and graphic designer give her a keen sense on how to get the job done while staying connected creatively.

Allie has Southern roots but is firmly planted in New England with her husband, two teenage daughters and golden retriever Tucker.
