Toronto and Durham Region Family Photography | The Best of 2011

As a portrait studio in Toronto specializing in family photographs I am blessed to be invited into the lives of the families who commission me.  On New Years Day I wrote my clients to tell them all just how humbled and inspired and simply moved I am and have been throughout these past five years.  I never expected this side of owning my own business.

I read a post a few days ago written by a fellow portrait photographer. She featured a letter written to her by a client.  Her client lamented about how it took her developing a terminal illness to realize that her portraits were worth more than she ever imagined. She goes on to talk about regretting choosing to eat dinner at an upscale restaurant and getting her hair done and not having those images to leave as heirlooms for her children.  I was honestly moved by how openly she spoke about her regrets.

That made me think and I started looking through my portfolio.  My clients often cross over that professional boundary and share bits and pieces of their lives with me. I began noticing all the faces of all the children I have photographed whom we have lost or who have lost loved ones.  For some I know these are the last images with that particular loved one. Seeing this gave me goose bumps. And right then I was sharply reminded of the very reason I started this. They are more than cliché heirlooms, and cute baby pictures, they are our legacy…they show we lived.

So it’s been a while in the making but finally here it is! The images that follow are a few of the best of 2011.

 

 

 May 2012 bring all of you the opportunities to live life to its fullest each and every day, and to create your legacy.

How to choose the right photographer for your family

Knowing which photographer to choose for you and your baby can be a real challenge. You deserve the absolute best and spotting the difference between professionals and amateurs can be difficult. As a mother and accredited Maternity Portrait photographer, the last thing I want is for your baby in the hands of someone who doesn’t know what they’re doing. Which is why I created this free guide so you can avoid the pitfalls and know exactly what to look for. Enter your details below and I’ll email it straight out to you.

Shirah Itskovitch2“When working with newborns it is important to find not only an amazing photographer but also a photographer that works amazingly with newborns. Alana has children of her own and her motherly nature shows. She handled our baby as if her own and I was worry free the entire photo shoot. Being a first time mom, everything is scary but having Alana come to our home and work her magic was more than I could have asked for!”
