We had the pleasure of hosting Alana in our home for a lifestyle newborn session. From the minute she walked in the door she was working and capturing many beautiful real life moments of our family and new addition. There was a little bit of crazy and chaos mixed with a whole lot of love and Alana just went with the flow, no pressure to be a certain way and it was truly like having a friend around. Alana has a wonderful friendly yet professional manner and creative eye, she’s delivered gorgeous memories frozen in time for us to treasure for years to come. We will certainly be return customers and highly recommended her to anyone looking for someone to capture beautiful natural essence of life through lifestyle photography.Kimberley
Such a beautiful experience working with Alana for our newborn lifestyle session. She has been so warm, engaging and accomodating from first contact, and was an absolute delight to work with on the day of our in-home shoot. Then there’s the incredible shots she captured – pure magic. We can’t stop looking through them!! Beautiful work and so well-priced. We will cherish the experience and the photos of our family for ever. Thank you so, so much Alana. We will be recommending you to all our friends and family in the future.Alana
I engaged Alana to take some photos of my daughters. Beforehand they were like “I don’t like having my photo taken. Do we have to do this?” By the end of the session it was “That was fun. Alana is really nice”. Thanks Alana for making the girls feel so at ease. And the photos …. absolutely stunning!Sue
Very professional with an amazing talent. Alana recently did my maternity shoot and not only was it fun, she made it very comfortable and memorable. I am so glad I did it. Cannot recommend her enough!!Maja
“I want to say a massive thank you to Alana, the photos are amazing!!! We will definitely be having more pics with you again”Stephanie
Alana was an absolute angel! She captured the most amazing and beautiful moments for my engagement party. Her beautiful personality shone through and was such a delight to all our guests, we had so many people complimenting Alana and all her work afterwards. I absolute adore the slide show she created for us, I couldn’t recommend her enough. Thankyou again you beautiful woman! XxSophia
“Thankyou Alana for capturing these truly lovely photos of our family.You have a beautiful warm presence and a lot of patience with the little ones. We would highly recommend Alana to capture your treasured moments”Stacey
Alana is an absolute joy and we are delighted with our lifestyle photos. She beautifully captured some simple but very special family moments. We can’t wait for you to join us for tea and toast again!Kate
We had the pleasure of working with Alana recently after welcoming our new daughter June into the world. I booked a newborn lifestyle shoot before bub arrived, Alana was so helpful with organsing dates and times that suited us and came to our home for the photo shoot. Before meeting Alana in person she was in contact by email in regards to what to expect on the day and making sure I felt prepared.
My parents were in town to see their newest grandchild so they were also part of the photos. Alana was not only super perfessional but was wonderful with my 2 year old and newborn. The few hours she spent with our family snapping photos of us in our natural element went by so quickly and effortlessly. I cannot wait for the next occasion to work with this very talented and warm hearted photographer.
Alana, being a mother herself, expressed a real warmth and empathy towards all of us. The manner in which she gave my 3 year old daughter space, whilst also subtly directing her was impressive. The results were beautiful, natural shots that we will treasure always.Lauren
Alana’s newborn lifestyle photos are the perfect way to capture those special moments with your new family member. They are memories that you are able to cherish forever and wonderful to look back and remember those first few weeks with your beautiful baby. Alana made us feel so comfortable and talked to us the entire time that we forgot she even had a camera during the session! Thank you so much Alana for capturing beautiful phots of our family xxLisa
Alana recently captured the birth of our third son and was so amazing throughout the whole experience. As you can imagine, at such a vulnerable time, it’s hard to think of how it will feel having someone else there watching but I felt so comfortable with Alana ahead of time and through the birth. Not only was she there to take pictures, Alana provided support to me whenever it was needed in the birth as well. She maintained her distance at the right times and I honestly didn’t even realise she was there for the most part so it was amazing to see the pictures she captured when I had no idea she was there in those moments. Alana made me feel so comfortable and not at all like being watched and of course the photos she captured were absolutely amazing!! highly recommend!Desiree
Thank you so much for capturing our family so perfectly! We loved our newborn lifestyle shoot so much. You made the process from my first enquiry, to receiving our images as well as follow up afterwards so easy. The shoot itself was natural, no pressure and genuine. Our images are perfect and I just love that it is us, no bells and whistles, no props – just us, at home, getting to know one another. I can’t wait for more family photos in the future!Kristy
We chose Alana to photograph our party because we thought her photos matched what we were looking for – natural, candid photos capturing special moments between us and our guests.
Little did we know that the decision we’d made to ask Alana to help us out was going to be the best decision we were going to make for our party. Alana was so kind and friendly and interested in us and our family members. She made everyone feel comfortable (how lovely Alana was was a very common compliment from our guests!) and the result was amazing photos of all our family and friends. People talking to each other, laughing, having a drink, hugging each other, our nearest and dearest being themselves.
I couldn’t be more grateful for those photos, true representations of such special moments.
And then, to top it all off, the photos and video were completed within a week! The first time I saw the video I was a blubbering mess! I was just so THRILLED with what I had received.
We can’t thank Alana enough, I would recommend her for any occasion that she is available for. I will certainly not forget to be in touch with her for any future opportunities I might like to have photos done. If you are looking for a photographer, your search should end with Alana, you absolutely will not be disappointed.
Alana came to our home to take some photos of our little family yesterday, with our extremely excited and slightly hurricane-like 2 year old, and our very unsettled 5 week old Baby! Alana was so warm and approachable and really made us feel comfortable about being in front of the camera, there were times we forgot that she was there! We can not wait to get our photos and would recommend Alana to anyone! Love The Anthony’s.Amber
Alana is beyond amazing at what she does. Super friendly and relaxed which makes for a great atmosphere. She is talented at capturing some of the most unique pictures. The way her business end is set up it makes it easy to navigate and view pictures that are high quality. I can’t wait to work with her again.Crystal
Absolutely adore Alana’s work. We had some family photos taken last week and Alana made the shoot so easy for us and the photos are amazing. We can’t wait to print some to hang on our walls. We will be back Alana.Amy
On a cold and miserable day, where we really considered cancelling, you managed to capture so many beautiful shots in such a short time. You managed to get the boat house with the colours I wanted to match my home (my motive really), but still capture such beautiful pictures of my girls. I just love your candid style of photography. Thanks Alana. Can’t wait to get it on my wall.Joy
Could not recommend Alana more! ❤️❤️❤️ We had an amazing family session in the late afternoon at Perry’s Paddock and I am in LOVE with every single photograph. Alana was able to capture the true personalities of our entire family and we will treasure these images for years to come. Thank you Alana!Kate
We absolutely loved our shoot with Alana-she has kids the same age so totally knew how to relate to our busy little bodies who were not interested in sitting still for one moment. We are in love with all our pics and just had to get a full gallery as we just couldn’t choose! A good problem to haveNikki
My husband and I wanted to capture some photos to mark our daughters first birthday. We asked Alana if she would capture an outdoor cake smash session. Alana took on the request with excitement and we are beyond thrilled with the outcome of the photos that we will cherish for many years to come. Alana made the shoot fun, relaxed and knows exactly how to make kids feel at ease.My daughter was shy and reserved initially but after the first 10 minutes was giggling and laughing the whole time. We were also able to get some family shots and I can’t stop looking through them. Along with some posed shots I’m really in love with the in the moment shots Alana takes as a part of her lifestyle imagery. Thanks Alana we are very happy customers and will no doubt be calling upon you in the future xxBec
Alana is an amazing person and photographer!!! Her skills and photos are unbelievable! 🤩 She made our couple shoot feel so comfortable. Her communication with us from the start was fantastic. We will definitely be using Alana again for any photos we want done. Thank you so much Alana!!! ❤️ xxxGrace
Alana came to our house to do a newborn lifestyle shoot. From the moment she arrive we knew we had picked the right person for the job! She was so warm and relaxed. She effortlessly chatted away whilst at the same time capturing some beautiful moments as we laughed and cuddled our newborn. It was such a nice experience. We received the photos in the next few days and we were so amazed – she has such talent!! they are so beautiful and I’m so glad we have them to treasure forever. Would highly recommend Alana! XxMelanie
We had Alana take some family maternity photos for us and she was brilliant. I was worried our 2.5 year old would be shy but Alana was great at getting down to his level, and he warmed up to her very quickly. He ended up having an absolute ball and the photos reflect that. She managed to capture some beautiful photos of us all, she is really talented! Thank you Alana! XVanessa
Alana did a fantastic job of capturing my daughter’s early hours with a 48 hour fresh photography session at the hospital where she was born. Alana was able to make my partner, my mum and myself feel comfortable (all normally terrible in front of a camera), so that the focus could remain on baby Harriet. I know that without Alana, we would have struggled to capture this special moment in the chaos of becoming first time parents. The session did not feel rushed because Alana took her time with us making the session feel even more important. I would highly recommend Alana!Jazmin
We met Alana a little over a year ago for Zoey’s Newborn shoot and this year we had Family come to visit from New Zealand and Brisbane so we thought what a great time to get more photos done and again Alana met expectations. Thank you so much we are absolutely in love with the imagesLeanne
Birth story that Alana captured for my daughter was stunning. She was patient, calm and is still an active part of our journey.
Recently, I have had another look at the photos, video and book & they are just fabulous, organic and professional!
We just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to Alana for her birth story, time and patience.
Also, the album and video has received so many compliments by all who have viewed it!
Definitely highly highly recommended
Alana’s work is absolutely incredible, not only does it show in her photographs but she has this ability to make you feel completely comfortable and at ease no matter how silly you think you look. She’s very easy to talk to and makes sure you understand her intent behind the images and uses her experience to get you the best possible results.
Her images portray in my opinion a real autheticness in the subject she’s photographing, there’s no perfect ‘posing’ you simply be yourself-with a bit of silly- and she manages to capture a side of you that you may never have seen of yourself before. My partner and i were blown away by our photographs. 10/10
Alana just made us feel so comfortable! Everything felt so natural and not forced! Will definitely recommend her to my friends and also when my baby is born I would love to get her to take them photos too
