Testimonial:

“Since I started food blogging, Alanna has been my favorite food photographer in the world and one of my biggest sources of inspiration! I was ecstatic when I learned that she’s offering video sessions, and I knew I had to jump on the opportunity. I’m so glad I did because one video call with Alanna led me to so many answers to questions I’d had for years. It’s one thing to learn about food photography, but it’s another to have one of the best photographers in the industry look at what you’re doing and offer suggestions. Alanna’s humble personality and sweet persona made the experience all the more pleasant! After speaking with her, I was able to improve my photography setup, editing, and food blogging strategy. Thank you so much, Alanna!” -Izzah, TeaForTurmeric.com
