THE EXPERIENCE

let's hang out, take some photos and 

Let me start by saying this:  if you’ve never had photos taken before - It’s going to be waaaaaay easier and fun than you probably expect!

I'll always direct you and never ask you to do something that feels wrong or awkward or leave you hanging with no idea what you should be doing next. 

 I absolutely LOVE details so I will be there to know more about you, the things you love, what makes your heart sings. Because when we get to know each other like friends, I can capture YOUR story and the connection between you and your loved ones. I am here for you not only for beautiful photos but for an incredible experience.


ENJOY THE PROCESS

MEET ALANA

- QUESTIONNAIRE Ahead of time I’ll get you to share a little bit about you/ your family/each child so that I can be better prepared for your session. 

- A LOCATION GUIDE with my favorite locations in Massachusetts. I know it can be tricky and sometimes stressful to choose the perfect location for your photos so I prepared a guide just for you. 

- WHAT TO WEAR: The outfits you choose for your session are one of the most important factors in your photos. Not only do they play a huge role in the visual aspect of the photos, but whether or not your child feels comfortable has a huge effect on their mood & energy. 

- INFORMATION: Communication is a key factor for me! I like to keep my clients updated + stress free. I truly care about your session, about telling YOUR story. That’s as important for me as it is for you.

L O V E N O T E S

she for sure surpassed all my expectations

I could not be happier with our decision to use Alana for pictures. She was very patient with my son and gave him the space to be super comfortable in front of the camera. From the beginning to the end of the session she was extremely professional. I did not know what to expect going into the session, but she for sure surpassed all my expectations. Not to mention she had my sneak peak ready the next morning and my gallery was ready only 7 days later!!

frequently asked

questions

WHEN + HOW WILL I RECEIVE the files?

can i cancel/reschedule?

If you need to re-schedule your session, your deposit can be put toward a re-schedule as long as I am notified within 14 days of your session. However, if you simply don’t show up to the session, the deposit will not be refunded. If you need to cancel and do not want to re-schedule, your deposit is not refunded.   

WHEN SHOULD I BOOK?

Booking well in advance is recommended! My current wait times for session openings are around 5 weeks, but cancellations do happen once in a while! Please reach out as soon as possible and I’ll see if I have availability.

WHAT IF MY KIDS WON’T ENGAGE?

No worries! Many children are shy or have a hard time with posing for photos - Which is why we forget the posing and just get you all hanging out and loving on each other! You just enjoy the moment and I’ll worry about the photos.

How long will my session last?

Usually under one hour! Yesss. I keep my sessions very short, specially with young kids - they don't last longer than that and I want it to be a fun experience for them. For couples only: usually one hour or until we run out of a pretty light. In Home Newborn: around 1.5 hrs.

will you photoshop us?

No. I won't.  I capture my families as authentic and real as possible. However, If there's something that is temporary (pimples or scars)  I am happy to remove it out of the photos.

how does payment work?

i require a 30% non-refundable retainer at the time of booking and signing the contract. The remainder is due 2 weeks before your session. I accept payment through Honeybook or Venmo.
