About Ala

My name is Ala. I live in Southern California and have two babes of my own, Landin & Cole. You can usually find me on the beach with a delicious cocktail in my hand.

I love capturing the beauty in the in-between moments – warm embraces with your 93-year old grandmother or your first few days with your newborn. All those moments are so special to me and my hope is that I can tell your story through photographs that you’ll look back on for years to come.

Ala rhymes with Kayla

I love tequila, online shopping and sushi. I believe naps fix everything and I quote Schitt’s Creek often. I’m addicted to pilates and prosecco. So, hello there. Let’s meet.

Trust me, I know how much you want to hold on to every second

You wish you could freeze time. So you can slow dance at your wedding reception forever. So your kids can stay little and curious about everything for a bit longer. But time doesn’t stop, and all you can do is save each memory through a photo, and revisit it weeks, months and years from now. I’d love to help you with that.
