I’m constantly amazed at how quickly families grow and change, and forever thankful that I stop and take the time to preserve as many precious moments as possible.
As a mother of 3 myself, I know the wonder and amazement of it all. The beauty of new life and the way bringing a baby into the world makes you feel so many emotions all at once you could burst.
That’s what I love most about photography and why I chose to specialize in Maternity and Newborn portraiture. It is my greatest joy to uncover the beauty in every expectant mother and make her feel amazing. To create images that show her how radiant she is in that moment and to help her preserve those feelings that don’t have words so she can hold on to them forever.
Then to capture the essence of her newborn and the bond between baby and parent; their little fingers and blissful faces, their curled up toes, those beautiful lashes; all the details that change faster than you could ever imagine is completely humbling. I honestly can’t think of anything better.
The images I have created for clients over the years have received multiple awards including 2013 Provincial Judges Choice, two provincial Merit Awards, and two images accepted into the National Image Salon in 2015.
As a long standing member of the Professional Photographers of Canada and Vice-Chair of the Central Ontario Portrait Branch of the PPOC, photography is in my blood and it is truly my honour to commemorate and preserve the life of your family. To help you to savour little moments of time that might not seem like anything out of the ordinary when the camera shutter clicks, but will ultimately be the moments that we most treasure after they are long gone. I can’t wait to help you decorate your home with love.
“From our first phone conversation to the final image selection, working with Alana was an absolute pleasure. She and I “clicked” right away and I knew from the start that she would make our newborn photo shoot a wonderful experience. Being a first time mom, knowing that Alana is an experienced mother was very helpful and watching her handle our newborn with ease put me at ease too. The final images turned out amazing and we can’t wait to display them in our home! All in all, a wonderful experience.”
