The most common question DeSilva Studios receives (besides what to wear for a session! :) is "How did [Alison] find her passion for black and white photography?" And, her answer, really, is that black and white photography found her! Just as she fell in love with Coco at the Washington Humane Society, she also came to love the truth that only black and white images can reveal. Sure, she includes a few color images to compliment a client's collection. But, her heart remains with dramatic, classic, retro yet modern-at-the-same-time, black and white images. In some ways these images pay tribute to photography's roots. But, mostly, they are the best way to showcase beloved animals — no distractions, no hues, just honestly adorable images of loved animals.
