Hey, hey.. It's me, Alena. NYC, NJ and Connecticut photographer that is mostly running on coffee, good laughs, sometimes too much imagination and that enjoys a good love story. I specialize in type of sessions that are closest to my heart: Motherhood & Family photography through timeless, documentary and a bit of editorial style. Ahhh those tiny hands touching your face, showering you with kisses and those belly laughs!! With that said, I deliver genuine images, the imperfectly perfect moments, that will be cherished for many generations. Images which will make you smile, through which you can still feel what you felt that day.
Let's face it, we live in a digital world. We store everything on our phones, iPads, computers.. we share our adventures and important moments on social media BUT how do we know that it's all going to still be around in 10 or 20 years, I mean look at MySpace, does anyone even remember it? **Quietly raising hand** How many times have you lost all the photos you had stored on your phone when you accidentally dropped it? **Me raising hand again** That's why I provide more than just "a digital world". Beautiful selection of prints, photo albums and other keepsakes are available with your package or may be ordered right from your gallery. There is just something special about actually holding on to your memories.. Displaying them around your house for everyone's enjoyment. And let's not forget, this is how the photos were meant to be presented.
"Alena is an outstanding photographer! She has the ability and eye to make any location look magical. She is so easy to work with and is wonderful with children. We have worked with her three times, even after moving out of NYC. Every time we are thrilled with our family photos! I can't recommend her enough!"
"I first found TheABView on Instagram & I really loved the style and mood of her shots. I instantly wanted to work with her. We recently booked & completed a family Christmas shoot. Alena of TheABView was so great to work with - she communicated well, was on time & had so many amazing ideas of poses (which I personally struggle with). She made us look amazing! I normally am so picky over photos and when she sent me the gallery, my husband & I loved EVERY SINGLE ONE that we ended up purchasing the whole album (we initially signed on for 10 images). I honestly can’t wait for another occasion to book her again!"
"I first heard about Alena of TheABview from an online recommendation, and immediately booked a family photo session with her. We were so thrilled with the beautiful photos and our overall experience that we have continued to come to her for a number of photo sessions over the last few years. Just a few of the many reasons that we love working with her are mentioned below.
In addition to having an incredible eye for photography, Alena is excellent with babies and young children, which is not always an easy task! She has a very strong work ethic, is very easy to communicate with, and has always been able to get incredible, high quality images back to us in a very timely manner. I should add that our most recent photo session was in Sept 2020 and Alena was very careful about wearing masks and distancing to ensure everyone’s safety. Finally, Alena is an incredibly caring and compassionate person, which makes everything all the more enjoyable!"
"Alena is an incredibly talented photographer. She has an amazing eye, way of bringing your family together, and the results are beautiful. She has shot our family 4 times, and we had an amazing experience every time! We even moved out of state, and I found a way to do a shoot. We love her that much."
As seen on..
