Star: Aly Whitney-Plaut

Aly Whitney-Plaut is the owner of Hazel Eye Photography and is one of the photographers for Sparrow Clubs in Southern Oregon. Several friends have children who have been Sparrows. Having worked in the past with these Sparrows and other adults and children with special needs made it both an easy choice and a joy to participate this year.

Seven years ago, Aly returned to photography after not having formally picked up a camera since the days of dark rooms in college. She has found it moving and meaningful to document people in all seasons of their lives. The journey has led to both national and international publications, such as the Today show, The Chive and recent work for human-interest photography for Hearst Magazine and Cosmopolitan. In 2017, Aly was nominated as one of the top new wedding vendors for the state of Oregon and one of the best wedding photography studios. In 2018 she has been voted one of the top three wedding photographers in the state
of Oregon for Oregon Bride Magazine.

Aly resides in Grants Pass with a large blended family. She and her husband have five children together, ages seven, 14, 14, 16 and 22. It has been a wild ride and a lot of work, but they wouldn’t have it any other way! Aly is so happy to have someone like her husband who has believed in her dream every step of the way and is such a big supporter.
