Between ice cream negotiations, tickle wars, and goodnight kisses, time has a curious knack of whizzing by. One minute you’re cradling your tiny bundle of joy, filled with tenderness and wonder, and the next, you’re holding back tears as they brave their first day of school.
Do you often wish you could slow down time, pause their childhoods, and hold onto this moment?
I’d be honoured to help you document this very time in your life, while your little ones are still little. Capturing their cheeky smiles, shrieks of laughter, wide-eye innocence, and all the things that make your world whole, your beautiful beautiful family film will be a nostalgic keepsake you’ll cherish forever.

“Without knowing what was inherently part of our world, Alana captured the perfect small moments. The coffee brewing, the photo of a lost loved one, the little nuances of our family that only a true artist would even notice. I watch our video often, and I am always brought to tears. Alana gets it, like no one else. I can not wait to have her back, to create more memories for us to hold onto as our lives grow and change.”
This is your story, your legacy, your everything
Let’s film it so you can hit “replay” on your memories any time, anywhere.

4. Your time to shine
YAY! Don’t worry about a thing, we’ll let your little ones take the lead, ensuring everyone is comfortable and having loads of fun throughout your session.
5. Relive the magic
Your family film is finally ready! Cosy up on the couch with your kids and allow the feel-good vibes to wash over you as you watch your film.
Being in front of the camera makes me feel uncomfortable. What will it be like?
Don’t worry, I understand the nerves of being filmed! As I don’t pose or set up, I will just be quietly working away in the background to film the raw and real everyday moments between you and your family. I’ll often be silent so that my voice isn’t captured on film, so don’t be surprised if you don’t notice me!
It’s so important that you don’t try to ‘hide’ in the background during filming – this film will be a keepsake for you, your children and your children’s children to look back on, so it is great when everyone features in the filming.
Our house is a mess – can we have a session elsewhere?
ABSOULTELY! I do love when a house looks lived in – when you have kids running around, it’s only natural that they leave a trail behind them! Your film is about your family and the life you live together, so don’t feel like you need to have a super clean house or a ‘picture-perfect’ garden for filming to be a success. But alternatively you can have your session on location somewhere.
What if our kids are shy (or rowdy!) in front of the camera?
Each child reacts differently to being filmed – some become larger than life and others find the closest thing to hide behind! Patience and understanding are key when working with kids and I am happy to take the session as it comes, tantrums and all. If things are getting too much, we can have a break as I don’t want to capture footage if it makes you feel uncomfortable.
I’m not sure what moments I want on film?
Before filming, we work through a questionnaire together to uncover what is special to you and your family. That way, when the day arrives, I can make sure to capture the most meaningful footage.
Do you offer payment plans?
Yes I offer payment plans so that you can make smaller instalments to take the pressure off.
Can my extended family join?
Of course!! This is your film so let's make it something special for you.
