Hi, my name is

Alana

Storyteller

Thank you for being here and I’m genuinely honoured you’re wanting to learn more about me.


Since becoming a mother myself, I’ve realised just how quickly time can fly by. Life is a carousel that just keeps getting faster and faster as the years go.


That’s why I’m here! I want to help you slow down the time by filming the magic of it all, from the day you say “I do” to the day your family starts growing. Wherever life’s journey takes you, you can count on me to be right by your side as you celebrate each and every passing milestone.


With my photos my goal is to capture more then just pretty photos, I'm there to capture what it feels like. From our initial contact, I'm dedicated to guiding you through the entire process. I provide comprehensive information before and after the session, assist with choosing locations and outfits, and ensure you feel effortlessly natural in front of the camera. My goal is to make our session seamless and enjoyable, all you need to do is show up and I can handle the rest for you.


I am always on the lookout for beautiful light and genuine, authentic moments with connection. Having a toddler myself, I understand the spectrum of emotions that come with parenthood. This enables me to connect with children effortlessly, creating an environment where they feel at ease and can express their true selves.



I am so obsessed about documenting life that I have a new business called The Seasons of Life which turns mobile footage into keepsake films. www.theseasonsoflife.com.au @theseasonsof.life. This is another love and passion of mine, helping families relive their precious moments. Honestly nothing feels my cup up like making these films watching families grow and seeing their little children grow up in front of my eyes, it is simply MAGIC!


Here's a little sneak peek into my world

Purposefully documenting life to preserve your memories


Starting at a young age, I’ve had a lifelong obsession with taking photos and videos. I was always the girl with a digital camera taking photos of my friends, capturing the memory so that I could look back on them. A particular eye-opening moment that made me feel my ‘why’ to my core was when I filmed my cousins Opa saying a beautiful speech about family at a family gathering. (This was before iphones). I knew while recording that this was a special moment but didn't realise just how much special it was until he passed away.


After I heard the news I dug around until I found the footage of him. I offered to make the special slideshow for the family that was played at his funeral and added the recorded speech at the end. It was so special to hear his voice again and had the whole room in tears and brought everyone back to that time.


This is what fills my cup, knowing that I can help others salvage their special moments. 


I can’t wait to meet you x
