    Alanna went above and beyond to find suitable locations. She spent a lot of time planning. She had great ideas for photos. More importantly, the photos came out great!

    It was really fun working with Alanna for mysenior pictures. Despite the cold we took pictures for about 1 1/2 hours , and had a great time. She's very easy going and easy to talk to. I loved the pictures we took and she edited them all in less than 2 weeks!

    Alanna was asked to capture, on film, my essence as a professional composer. Prior to the shoot, I had very little experience being photographed, but her calm demeanor managed to assuage any anxiety I might have had. The subsequent shots she came up with managed to make me look like a cool, edgy, talented guy (which.. *ahem*.. I am of course, though I've never had a photograph indicate as much)

    Additionally, she completed THIRTY high quality touch-ups in a very timely manner.

    Though just 23, make no mistake, Alanna is a professional with a bright future in photography. Possessing more than just a talent for the craft, she also knows how to work with people and deliver quality results right on schedule. I would definitely recommend Alanna for any project, particularly those requiring a degree of 'artsy' finesse.

Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Email or call the photographer to speak with them one-on-one about what services they offer and how much for everything, including editing and a CD or flash drive. This will help avoid any surprises when it comes time to exchange photos for payment.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. Photographers spend much more time editing your images than you would think... it's fun, but it takes some serious time.

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. Ask about specific elements of your shoot:

-Pricing per shoot/day/hour
-How you would like your images delivered to you (on CD, website, flash drive, etc.)
-Length of shooting time
-Outfit changes, etc.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. I try to look at events and people in a way that others don't. Focusing completely on your subject and giving them your full attention allows the photo to be something bigger than that moment in time.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. Working with such a variety of people is definitely the best part of photography. Different subjects bring different characteristics and flair to each photograph, it keeps the job interesting always working with someone new.
