Alana McClure Photography

The beauty of new life and the way bringing a baby into the world makes you feel so many emotions all at once you could burst. That’s what I love most about photography. It is my greatest joy to uncover the beauty in every expectant mother, to create images that show her how radiant she is; to help her preserve those feelings that don’t have words so she can hold on to them forever. Commemorating all the details that change faster than you could ever imagine is completely humbling. It is truly my honour to help you to savour little moments of time that will ultimately be the moments that we most treasure.
