The Experience

The Experience

I want your time with me  to be a fantastic experience for everyone involved!  Here’s what you can expect after you book your session:

A Pre-Session Consultation: You may choose to visit the studio to meet me, plan your session and see all of my signature products. Pre-session consultations are optional and available by phone for our busy clients.

The Photo Session: Maria knows how to make everyone feel at ease and look their absolute best. Your photo session will be easy, natural and fun for everyone involved—even dad, we promise. When your family connects authentically, the qualities you love most about them come shining through in each portrait.

The Reveal Session: About two weeks following your portrait session, we will meet at the studio to view all of your images for the first time. This is everyone’s favorite part! I will help you select your favorites and suggest wonderful ways to showcase them in your home; all while pampering you with cold beverages, coffee or a glass of wine.

My Promise

I get it.  Your family is your EVERYTHING. Your children’s beauty and personality constantly amaze you and fill you with emotion. You want to preserve this time forever, because you know how quickly they grow up.

You are a busy modern parent, and can’t waste time on anything less than quality products and services. Your home is your sanctuary and you know there’s nothing better than infusing family artwork into your décor and collecting portrait art to enjoy today and forever.

Creating stunning heirlooms is not just a job for me – It’s my mission.

Capturing the perfect moment requires a mere click of a shutter button, but rest assured, that intention was preceded by many years of education, experience and hard work.

For every minute I spend with you, I spend hundreds more behind the scenes, making your images and overall experience exceptional.

I want you to adore your portraits as much as I love creating them.  I will do everything it takes to give you the absolute best, most enjoyable experience and products you’ve ever had.

I found Maria through a Google search for senior beach photos and was instantly drawn to her images. I knew she was perfect for the job from the very first email. She was prompt, friendly and shared my enthusiasm for our session. Our experience was perfect and I couldn’t ask for anything more than what Maria did for us! My daughter will have the BEST senior pictures and we made a new friend in the process!
