002The idea came whilst on my maternity leave...I wanted to do something a little different. As much as I LOVE being able to work from home and look after my precious boy, I also feel I need some sort of creative outlet, at some point in the day, to unwind. So I got to thinking... Each new year, I set myself goals - both in my business & personal life. One of my goals this year was to do something as a collaboration. During the couple of years Jade Alana Photography has been alive (!), I have come across so many talented & creative people also running their own businesses & I thought rather than sit back & hope something would happen...I got emailing those talented individuals & got the ball rolling. And I'm so glad I did. One little email & I feel that good connections have been made & new friendships have been born.

Our first Style Session turned out to be better than I imagined! I've listed everyone involved below; and I'm so thankful for everyone's efforts. In no way can I take all the credit for it, because everyone really gave their all - their time, their energy & great ideas.  So, thank you everyone! Here are my favourites from the day...We hope these images inspire you.
