Those little hands holding your face leaning in for a kiss. The ringlet curls that frame her face. The muddy hands and feet from playing in the backyard. The way her favorite tutu catches the light in the living room each evening. The laughter when your little one makes that silly noise. The hugs and dances and tears and belly laughs and the big yawns. 

These. These are the little things that I never want to forget.

I think we can all agree that no matter how hard we try these little moments always fade a little in our memory. And this is why I fell in love with photography. I can make those little details and those precious moments last forever. It will all come flooding back when you’re holding that photo.

I would love to tell your family's story.

Hi. I'm Alaina.

I'm married to my college sweetheart and mom to three little girls living just outside of Nashville. My days are filled with playing dress up, endless snacks, and lots of cuddles. I dream of one day owning my own little piece of Tennessee with views of rolling hills and maybe a chicken or two (but I'll be honest, I don't want to take care of said chickens. I just want to see them frolicking in the backyard and the kids running around. Maybe my husband will take on that responsibility!).

I will forever be a fan of The Office, hot coffee, and a good pair of jeans.

I would love to meet your family and capture the little moments that make your heart flutter.
