“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

“I was beyond happy when I saw that Alanna did video consultations about photography.  I’ve admired her beautiful style for years and was so happy to get one one one attention from a pro.  The call was beyond helpful.  I have taken many photography courses over the years, but I got more from this call than the many hours I’ve spent doing online photography courses.  There is something so effective about being able to ask about exactly what you need help with.  I had been feeling stuck with my photography like no matter what I did, I just couldn’t move the needle.  Thanks to Alanna, I’m over that hump and I am getting more interaction and positive feedback about my photos daily.  By the way, she’s a sweetheart and so easy to talk to! -Karen, Seasonal Cravings
