My grandfather was a photographer. When I was a child, I never had an interest in what he was doing. He would be focusing, adjusting, clicking away and I never cared. Once, I even ruined an entire roll of negatives by sneaking under the blanket where he was meticulously working. I let in too much light; at the time I didn’t understand how precious the light was. Back then there was no enjoyment in finding that special moment through the lens and now… I wonder what those photos could have been.

The importance of photography didn’t hit me until later, when I was holding a random photo of our family. It showed a perfect frozen moment and I was left wondering how we all changed so much. Were my brothers really ever that little? Oh, and I totally forgot my mom had this dress! It was my favorite, I loved it on her. Was my fashion sense really ever so abhorrent that I ever liked those dated shoes? But, look how sweetly I’m kissing my little brother on the cheek! Through my grandfather’s lens there was a tiny world, a tiny memory, that would last forever. 

My name is Alona, I am a photographer and I am here to bring the international experience, a touch of French tenderness and a timeless elegance into your pictures.

Having lived and worked in Europe, Asia and Africa for the last 12 years and having moved to Cairo directly from Paris, France, I had a unique chance to see real emotions, tears of happiness, sincere smiles and true love. The belief into the importance of what I’m doing taught me to put my heart into my work. With love for details- because I know how much they mean to you.

Photographs capture a moment that’s gone forever, a reminder for you to always keep it in your heart.

In the end, it’s all about memories. Let me preserve the ones which are the most important for you- because that’s what I do best.

“You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
– Ansel Adams
