Alpana is the best photographer you’ll find. And really, she’s more than that–she’s an artist. The pictures she took of our daughter are priceless works of art that we’ll always cherish. The great thing is, she’s also organized and professional. It is hard to find someone who can manage a business AND be an amazing artist, but somehow she does both beautifully. She guides you through the entire process, from recommending clothing for your photo session to helping you place your order for photos, to calling you to make sure your pictures have arrived and that you love them. She truly loves her job and it shows in every photo she takes.

Alpana is a natural storyteller with an incredible gift. She can turn the typical picture of children and/or families into beautiful works of art. She has an incredible eye and quite a gift — I can’t recommend her enough. Her photos are thoughtful, beautiful to look at and images you will treasure for a lifetime.

What distinguishes Alpana among family/newborn photographers is her AMAZING gift for making photos that are true “art” rather than simply great photos! My husband and I wanted to capture the fleeting and precious moments of our newborn in his first few weeks of life. When we saw Alpana’s work it was love at first sight. Her photos are artistic, passionate, emotionally stirring, and simply magical. We knew we had to work with her and she made working with her so easy. She came to our home and worked around our baby’s schedule, which was very much appreciated as new parents. Alpana made us feel very comfortable and was so gentle and patient with our baby. All of this comes through in her photos. Our photos are amazing and take our breath away each time we look at them. She’s truly a gifted and amazing photographer. We can’t wait to work with her again.

Alpana…we are so excited about the pictures and want to let you know how much we appreciate how you captured the kind of moments that we were hoping for. You made the shoot feel easy and relaxed, even for us camera phobes! We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer to tell our story.

We have thousands of photos of our kids, but none have ever looked so amazing. Our friends and family have noted that the photos Alpana took of our children are stunning but really look like them, too. The best part for me was how comfortable our three-year-old twins were with Alpana. They befriended her and as a result none of the photos seem forced. When we got our prints we truly fell in love with our kids all over again!
Alpana photographed my husband,daughter, and I back in January. I am very selective about photographers and when I saw Alpana’s site, www.storyboxart, I knew she would be able to capture just what I wanted in professional photos for our home, and she did! What she is able to see during your session together will amaze you, just like it did me! Alpana is patient, calm, and her work is stunningly beautiful. I have recommended her to everyone I know.

My family and I were in search of a natural light photographer that wouldn’t make us pose the whole time, awkwardly, and in front of boring backdrops. A good friend of mine referred us to this website and we were amazed by the photos. The artist has a wonderful eye and during th e session is a real pleasure to work with. She is a natural with children, especially our 10 month old. The result was a variety of wonderful pictures that we cherish and will enjoy for years to come.

Alpana is a true artist with a great eye. She possess the true patience and flexibility needed to work with little ones. She took pictures of my one week old daughter and 4 year old son. She was able to capture the innocence and wonder of my children, and the love we have together as a family through her natural light photography. We treasure our pictures.
Incredible photos of my children. Can’t wait to give them to my wife for Christmas. Alpana definitely captures the joy and playfulness of the kids. The photos show the dedication and love of her craft. Alpana is as easy going as you can get which make for a relaxed photo shoot. The kids enjoyed the time with her. Her attention to detail and help with the presentation of the photos are excellent.
Thank You again, Mike S
Alpana’s patience and love of her work shone through as she photographed my 2 children running wild at the park. Even as I watched her take the photos, I couldn’t imagine any of my kids were sitting long enough to get a good shot – just the opposite – when the proofs came I had the hardest time choosing – they were all so wonderful! She captured the innocence of my 4 yr old boy with a playful grin and the shyness and beauty my 7 year old is starting to show as she gets older. These are more than photos, these are pieces of art!
If you are looking for beautiful and one of a kind portraits of your family or kids, I highly recommend Alpana Aras King at Storyboxart. Not only is she patient (and a mom) but a pleasure to work with. Her photos are amazing and beautiful works of art. She spends a great deal of time enhancing your photos and making them perfect. And although it may seem pricey, the end result is unique photos to enjoy for a lifetime.
I was so pleased with my session with Alpana. It was such a relaxed atmosphere. Instead of having my son sit in a certain position and “say cheese” she took pictures of him in his natural state while engaging him in conversation. Alpana captured expressions of my son that are so unique to him. And she was able to capture my son’s 5 year-old spirit in these pictures so when I look at them I not only see his cute face but I get a feel of his personality. What a treasure. The storyboards are a wonderful way of presenting the photos. Thank you, Alpana!

I love the family photos we had taken through Alpana! She captured the essence of our family through her unique and creative natural light photography. Before we had her take our photos, we used other indoor photographers. The photos she took were so different than we had ever experienced; our family and friends love them, too! Check her work out for yourself at www.storyboxart.com!
