Hi! I’m Allison Henson, the owner and lead photographer of Mother Hen Photography. We are located near Alton Illinois and serve the RiverBend and surrounding communities. I am also a very proud member of PPA-Professional Photographers of America, The RiverBend Growth Association, as well as The Knot.
You can see some of my work on the walls at the Alton Square Mall. The mall mural project was a small way of giving back to the community as well as a goal I had from when I was 7 years old walking the mall with my grandparents. I would go on and on to them about how one day I’d have my work at the mall.
My friends Call me Allie and I am a homeschooling mom to 8 awesome kiddos (2 who are productive adults) and wife to an adoring husband, Steve. Things have been a little rough as Steve is a disabled vet and suffers from cirrhosis and complications. He is the love of my life, a wonderful partner and my secret to success.
Family and community are very important to me, in case you didn’t already catch that. I almost always have at least one of my children with me as I show them the ropes of life. When you hire me as your photographer you are helping a local mom support her family. For that I am so grateful. I truly believe that if everyone added a tiny bit of love, the world would be a truly amazing place. I am always trying to teach my children this, so you will see them working side by side with me no matter what I am doing.
