Baby Photographer Toronto | Paying it Forward

Helping Hearts | Canada

As a baby photographer in Toronto and Durham Region I have to opportunity to photograph numerous babies and bellies every year.

It has been my great joy and driving passion for years.  Actually, I remember in my early twenties reading a “What Color is my Parachute” type book and the one bit I  can remember to this day is that it said my life’s purpose was to build a foundation by living my life behind the lens.  Back then I had no idea what that meant.  Now I wish I had listened!

Being a baby photographer in Toronto fulfills nearly every part of me.  I get to be home with my children while they are little.  I get to work with babies (something I’ve had a knack for ever since I was little) and I get to create treasured heirlooms for so many families.  Moreover,  I get to work relentlessly at something that never feels like work.

By the way, I have my husband to thank for it too.  If he hadn’t dragged me kicking and screaming to the great white north I would have never known this life.

This life of being a baby photographer in Toronto; this life of emotion and creativity, of story telling.  I know I’ve said it many many times but what I do is more than print pretty images on paper.  I work with families to create their own timeless heirlooms. Images that will speak to future generations and tell the story of who you were.

Because of that; because of how much it means to me that my clients trust me to create their heirloom baby photographs and family photographs I know I have to pay it forward (and have to like a driving force, not an obligation).

So I joined an organization called Helping Hearts. Helping Hearts is a not-for-profit organization that matches families with children who have terminal or life altering illnesses with talented photographers throughout Canada.  The photographers selected to represent Helping Hearts  freely give their time and art to these families.  We will photograph and give our images to families, in our respective areas, in need.

I can’t tell you what a blessing it is to be a part of this organization.

If you know of a family who could benefit from this type of service or you yourself would like to apply to receive a session please click through the links that take you to the Helping Hearts website and apply.  The application is free, and the sessions are free.   If you would like me to be the photographer chosen for your session you should indicate so on your application.

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.

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!”
