Emily studied in Italy with an impressionist master, focusing on a method passed down from the impressionist painter John Singer Sargent. The daughter of a Cuban American, Emily's expressive style and bold strokes may find their origins in her Spanish roots.

Not only is Emily Ozier a very talented artist, but she is a wonderful mother. Emily and her husband John reside on a five acre farm in Germantown, TN with their six children. Emily is very passionate;about children's education. She teachers her children at home using a classical education model with much emphasis on Literature and the Arts. 

Emily has stated that if you step into their home, you might find violins being played, The Secret Garden being read aloud, the Greek Olympics being acted out, and of course, paintings being created by all members of the family. Wouldn't you love to be a fly on the wall?

Allison Rodgers Photography is a nationally recognized and award winning portrait studio located in Collierville, Tennessee. Allison specializes in unique custom images for maternity, newborn, toddler, young children, tweens, teens, seniors, family, engagement, weddings or commercial jobs. Whatever the request, Allison and her staff can create pieces that truly tell your story.

Telling a Sweet Story 

One of the ways I come up with new products for the studio is to shoot something I would love to have for my own family. Let me introduce you to one of my favorite ARPproducts - The Silhouette.

 Allison Rodgers Photography Silhouette

I love these pieces because at first glance most don't even realize its a photograph, but upon a closer look they realize it's an image that tells such a sweet story.  We see our kids everyday, but do we really always SEE them? An image like the silhouette helps you do just that - it helps you see their sweet details.

These silhouettes are of my girls - Fable and Ever. When I first shot them, I notice how the shape of Fable's face was changing, she looks so beautiful and elegant. And my sweet Ever still had some baby chub and roundness to her face that is almost gone now. Details like how long their eyelashes are, the shape of their lips, that sparkle in their eyes - I could just stare at them forever! 

Choosing the Best Time to Create

Allison Rodgers Photography

The best age to create the The Silhouette is any time after your child turns 2. Some of our ARPfamilies choose a specific age (like 4) and create The Silhouette for all of their children at that same age. I chose to create mine at the same time to show the age difference in my girls. Either way is great. 

Creating Your Piece of Art

The Silhouette can be created in three different sizes : 12x12, 20x20 or 30x30.

It is printed on Fine Art Velvet paper, has hand-torn edges, and is float mounted into a silk lined shadow box frame.

We also love to add the child's name and age.

I loved creating this for myself and I love creating it for my ARPfamilies. The Silhouette is a piece steeped in tradition with a new contemporary twist.
