Family Photography

Newborn Thursday, February 25th 2016 0

Family photography in Toronto has been around for generations.  Once upon a time reserved for the elite and now transending economic boundaries photography is available to everyone, everywhere, all the time.  So why hire someone?

Well, truth be told you don’t need to hire someone. You are more than capable of using todays latest technology and snapping away, hoping to grab ‘that shot’ that makes you remember this ‘perfect moment’.  Birthday parties, school concerts, halloween costumes and silly dance parties; you can ‘capture’ them all. Believe me as a mother of 3 I don’t leave home without my camera…phone…wait now they’re one in the same. Just let me warn you though, as you move through life with that little person who carries your heart, that camera keeps you from living that moment.  You don’t get to experience the first time they roll over, or giggle…  You don’t really see the school play because you are too busy trying to record it.  You don’t live through halloween because you are too busy trying to get the ‘good shot’ of them running down the street with so much happiness.

Professional family photography has evolved right back into something you want, something you crave, something beyond a necessity.  You hire a professional so you can live in the moment and have it preserved.   You get to be the one holding and feeling your new baby’s fresh skin against yours; you get to be the one who drinks in the giggles and actually lives the moment big brother is mesmerized by his tiny hands, all while it is skillfully being preserved in beautiful photographs. Photographs that call you to relive thriving memories of you breathing in life (not chasing it down).

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!”
