Welcome to Alana Taylor Photography. My name is Alana and I have been a photographer for just over 5 years now. I started my business due to an intense passion for children's photography and a desire to capture timeless portraits for all the new families I believe that there is nothing more special than capturing moments that will tell wonderful stories for many years to come. Moments that can be shared and enjoyed by the whole family. My passion came to life after having my

It has been a busy few weeks heading up to Christmas for Alana Taylor Photography. Lots of little girls are turning one. These are 3 of the sweet little ones we had in the studio this week. Cakes, cakes and more cakes. I had a big chat with my girlfriends the other night about cake smashes being a "so called fad." They asked when do I think they will be something of the past? I aswered they wont!! Who would'nt want to celebrate their little baby turning 1! We use a variety of
Today we had baby Cameron in the studio with his big sister Olivia. There really is'nt much you can compare with the love between siblings. This photo took me on a journey back to when my little sister was born. They say you don't remmeber much from when you are really young. I know for me I have bits and pieces of memories but one that I refelcted on today was when my little sister Alisha was born. Of course as you get older there are lots of fazes you go through. Being teen
Is'nt she just gorgeous. Today we had sweet little Melodie in the studio for her 1st Birthday Cake smash. I think her mum chose the perfect colour to compliment her little girl and her perfect little face. Melodie was a great model flashing her smile to the camera, getting all messy whilst rolling around, having a little taste of the cake from time to time and finishing with a warm bath. Check out my website gallery to view the large supply of props we have for our cake smash
Open Arms The day you were born,
you touched my soul.
You were the missing link,
that made my life whole.
Those beautiful blue eyes,
stare at me in awe.
Gazing at the woman
Who just became your mom.
As days turned to months,
and months turned to years.
I watched you grow,
Facing life's challenges and fighting your fears.
Now that your grown,
you take that next step.
Those years gone by,
in my heart they're kept.
If you get lost along your way,
not sure wh
Introducing sweet little Brendan. Today Brendan, his mummy and big sister visited us in the studio. We used a variety of props from some of my favourite vendors: Drops and Props Kingston Photography Props Mini Hearts Photography Props Sweet dreams my darling, the day is done.
The moon is here to say goodnight to the sun.
Gather your blankets and climb into bed.
Close your eyes and lay down your head.
Rest for now with peaceful dreams,
Of twinkling stars and shining moo
I often get requests about my chalkboard StoryBoards. So I thought I'd share a few images of some of the chalkboard displays I have used this year. They are a very fun way to share some key information about yourself, new baby, toddler or family in a very cute way. Gone are the days of speech bubbles attached over the top of photographs. These can be used in so many ways. I actually recentely used the chalkboards for a session for my best friend that's getting married. I am a
What a year it has been here for us at Alana Taylor Photography!!! These are just a few of the newborn photography sessions I have created this year. The year 2015 has been very much a year of learning, creativity, love and happiness. Coming up to the end of another year is the perfect time to reflect on my work and consider new and exciting ways of growing what we have to offer for the following year. Although I am very lucky to offer a variety of sessions at my studio, ther
Our friendship started differently,
Than most friendships I've had.
We had to search each other out,
because of something sad.
A precious child to fill your hearts,
Is what you're longing for.
Infertility has made it hard,
to open up that door.
And so a search began for you,
to find a helping heart.
So similar to my own search,
not knowing where to start.
For me, the search is special,
it requires such great care.
A couple to have a child...
the fruit my sea
A Baby is...... A baby is cuddles and tickles on toes,
The sweet scent of powder, a kiss on the nose.
A baby is teddy bears, rattles, powder, and pins,
Meals at midnight, giggles, and grins.

So today we had this little one in the studio, is'nt he just divine? It got me thinking about my newborn shoots and the questions that I am asked often. If you know anyone that is umming and ahhing about having a newborn photography session or you might be in the same predicament, heres a few key facts to share: WHY DO I NEED THIS DONE? Um in two short words "total cutness"! But seriously this is a once in a life time opportunity, a small piece of time in you and your childs
At first you moved,
only a little.
I could always find you,
right in the middle.
As time went on,
you really started to grow.
It wasn't a whole lot,
in fact, it was rather slow.
Before I knew it,
you were all over the place.
It kind of felt like
you were running a race. People would ask me
if you were a boy or a girl.
I would sit and wonder,
if you would have curls.
There are so many things
I really want to know.
But you are hidden inside,
so the answers

Will you look at these two!! My spunky little friends Bella and Kupa, I love when they come to visit me at Alana Taylor Photography. I simply cannot explain how much I love to see returning customers.

Each and every baby is so divine and special and I am very blessed to be able to do what I do every day. I wont deny that being a newborn photographer is a unique type of photography that requires patience, persistence and a very friendly personality. All of the children that visit me need to fe
