Alana's Portfolio

Alana is most sought after for her organic emotive newborn photography.  This newborn photographer shows images on her site of babies who are two weeks old or younger.  It is her recommendation that you hold your newborn photography session between five and ten days after baby is born. If you are pregnant or have a brand new baby, please contact her immediately.  You will receive priority placement for your fine art newborn portrait session due to the extremely small window of opportunity to achieve that fresh newborn look.

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!”
