senior PORTRAIT experience


Going into my session with Maria, I was nervous, yet extremely excited. This experience was like nothing I had done before, bringing me out of my shell yet encouraging me to be myself, and I highly recommend it to everyone!!  Still a few months later I am in awe of the results, always sharing the pictures. 

Hadley

"within minutes Maria made me feel SO comfortable, loved, and perfectly myself.  Her passion for what she does is evident."

She was so personal, knowledgable and gave me so much voice in the creative process! I had professional makeup done and Maria helped style my two outfits. She also insured that I felt incredibly confident in front of the camera! It was such a unique experience, and I couldn’t recommend it more!

Kate

"My experience with Maria was incomparable
to anything I’ve ever done before!"

"You were able to truly capture the essence of who she is."

Amy

The beautiful senior photos you created for my daughter are stunning and true works of art.  I appreciate the thoughtful gift you sent to her before the session.  The care, experience and guidance you provided throughout the process made for timeless photos. 

Maria is an incredibly talented and personable photographer with a bubbly and fun personality and genuinely has fun during the session. I felt so comfortable and like I had known her for a long time. The photos are incredible!

Jillian

"She cares so much about the joy that these photos bring you and your family, and she does not settle for anything less than perfect." 

“I don’t even know where to begin! Maria was patient and kind. She did whatever she could to make me feel confident and comfortable going into the shoot. We had so much fun during my actual session. It was an experience that felt truly my own and the images she captured are a perfect celebration of me to remember this exciting season in my life!”

Carsyn

" it was an experience that felt truly mt own and the images she captured are a perfect celebration of me to remember this exciting season in my life!"

Maria’s approach of getting to know her clients beforehand lends itself to making the experience an extremely personal one. My daughter's personality was captured so vividly in the images taken. 
Maria is an exceptional person, and an amazingly talented photographer. She’s simply a rock star!

Courtney

"Our experience with Maria  from beginning to end was the most relaxing, fun, candid, and rewarding time!"
