Oh Heey!

it's me, ALANA SOUSA

family + elopement photographer

I am a cat person. No worries if you have dogs, I also like them Pets are just the cutest thing in the world! I have a cat and her name is Maria - sometimes Eduado -  but we call her GATA, Portuguese word for cat. 

I am a people pleaser by heart, which can be a blessing but also a curse. I put ALL my heart into my work, which means I give 100% into capturing your story with my camera.


MY DREAM HAS ALWAYS BEEN TO HAVE A FAMILY, WHICH INSPIRES ME TO TAKE THESE PICTURES AS IF THEY WERE OF MY OWN.

My father passed away in October 8, 2017. Exactly one year after he had passed I decided to start my photography business to honor his memory. He was my biggest fan and I know he would be sooo proud of me for pursuing my dream. 



Back in my country I have my mom, my sister and two cute nieces. They mean the world to me and I can't wait to see them again!

I believe in God, friendships & family. By the way… I do not work Saturday's, that’s my special time with God, husband & friends. Although I love my job, it’s just amazing to have 24 hours just to relax and reconnect with my creator. 

About my personality:  I am an ambivert. Meaning: I have personality traits of both introvert and extrovert. I can be a goofy ball but I can also be super formal. I am a virgo with ascendant in Sagittarius - if that's important to you, LOL. 

I am a Boston family, newborn + elopement photographer who specializes in freezing the magical moments and all the tiny unforgettable things that happen in between. 

Without being so formal: I am 31 years old. Feels like 23, and my back hurts like 87. I was born and raised in Brazil. I came to the U.S 2016. I didn't know any English when I arrived here. It was crazy, and hard. Super hard. I learned the language by watching series with audio and subtitles in English. It took me a very long time to actually speak the language. That finally happened when I worked as a nanny. I have a special bond with kids and we usually get along pretty well. I love spending time with them and to photograph them because they are sooo honest, and that's reflect a lot what I believe for my photography. 

I did photography for years in my country, I started when I was 19 years old and it was always more like a hobby.

I married my best friend in July 2020, right in the middle of a pandemic.  We had other plans but due the covid outbreak we decided to elope and it was the best decision EVER. We just wanted to start our life together asap. So glad we did that!

Juan is not only my best friend, he is my partner, and the best person I have ever met. He was born in Ecuador and he went to Brazil when he was little. We met here in Massachusetts, in church. Ins't crazy?! We used to live in the same city in Brazil and we never met.

Our wedding happened at Arnold Arboretum, a.k.a my favorite place in the world.

what to expect

I AM A SUCKER FOR NATURAL LIGHT, AND CREATING REAL AND AUTHENTIC MOMENTS RATHER THAN FORCED PHOTOS. 

my approach

I love telling stories through my work. Every shoot is unique! It’s all about YOU and capturing your life exactly how it is on the day of your shoot. My approach combines documentary and lifestyle photos which means that I will direct you to get the results we want but I will also document the scenes without interfering. Please take a good look into my portfolio and you will understand what I am talking about.
