I like wine. 

I like wine. 

I'm Alana. That picture is me. 
That picture is of me enjoying a plastic cup of wine before one of my project groups. That picture is a self-taken iphone camera photo because I don't prefer to be in front of the camera. So, this is what you get. 

About me: Above anything else, I am a mom. I am a girlfriend. I have two ridiculously awesome children - a daughter who is fourteen and a son who is three - they're the best kids in the world...even when they're not. :)  I have a super amazing boyfriend who is my friend, my balance and my sanity. These three people hold my heart in their hands. 

About me and photography: I love it. Obviously. I wouldn't be doing this if I didn't. 
More specifically: I love personality. emotion. character. laughter. love. And I prefer to capture all of those things in you. I don't like to pose you. I like to set you free. I like to observe and capture you being you. In all areas of your life. 
I detest drama and I love to laugh. If you are ready to laugh with me and capture some memories, drop me a line. I want to hear from you. Let's be friends.
