50 Essential Portrait Photographers: Alanna Clempson of Photography by Alanna Clempson

Alanna Clempson enjoys a good cup of coffee. The warmth of a newborn resting in one’s arms. Watching the clouds pass overhead, changing shape. Breaking the soil after a long winter. The innocence of a toddler reeling in laughter. Running in a summer rain. Listening to a child learn to play piano. Ginger snaps fresh from the oven. A warm fall breeze late at night. The smell of fresh laundry put out on the line…”Capturing the beauty in everyday life.”


Why did you get into photography?

We live in such a beautiful part of the world. Photography, at first, gave me a way of connecting with the natural beauty in everyday life as I started with macros and landscapes. My children came along and I discovered my real passion for capturing a very different kind of beauty, the kind you witness in a child free to be themselves and the kind that you find in a family that is close and genuinely loving. I love to see people honestly – however that looks.I enjoy seeking the uniqueness of each person or family, and creating beautiful ways of portraying them as they really are.


Tell us a bit about your company.

My business name is Photography by Alanna Clempson and I work throughout the Fraser Valley and surrounding areas. While I primarily work on location with natural light, I also have a studio and have done some commercial work in our area.


How would you characterize your style of photography?

Two words come to mind: honest and natural. I believe it is more meaningful to capture a family as they really are than to ask them to smile for the camera. I am fascinated by the story behind every face, every embrace the real story. I capture my subjects naturally and honestly – whether in my studio, on a beach, or in a backyard. Images come to life in the editing process where I can go between vintage and fresh to edgy and modern.



Who are your clients?

My clients are families and individuals who understand the importance of cherishing each other I say this because custom portrait photography is an investment but my clients understand that investing in ones family this way will never be regretted down the road. Our lives, our histories are worth remembering and my clients come to me to help them do that and value my experience, expertise, and skill as an artist.



What should your mom clients expect when working with you?

Once a client reserves a session with me, they are guided through the process right up until they receive their prints or products. I provide them with all the information they need to come to the session prepared, whether that is with a newborn, or with a family, or even maternity sessions (which I love!). I also offer assistance in ordering although my clients order from an online gallery, I often assist them when choosing what sizes and arrangements of photos would work best in their home. I am in the process of upgrading my blogsite, which when completed will provide detailed information on the entire experience.
