GENUINE, JOYFUL & Effortless
Photography Experience from start to finish

for moms who are too busy doing the most important job in the world,
but don't want to forget their

sweetest memories

Camille and Trevis are laying on their bed snuggling with their 10-day-old first baby. I'm working on my favorite pose shot. The whole family is lying on the bed. I'm standing on it too, with my camera on top of them. We are all laughing and living in the present moment. I see tears coming out of Camille's smiling eyes. Her tears give chills that fill my whole soul.  

This is why I do what I do. I help families freeze their sweetest memories and live that magical moment again. I want them to be able to feel through their photos the same feelings they experienced when living it. I want their photos to bring them gratitude for the life they have. 

For me, my photography journey begin 30 years ago when my dad gave me my first camera. At age of 16 I started backpack traveling around the world and I never stopped photographing. One day my first baby was born. I was so in love with everything I was living that I didn't want to forget and I don't want you either!

She had realized she was living one of the sweetest moments of her life

Camille is smiling and her eyes are filling out with tears at the same time as she snuggles with her newborn baby

"Mariana before turning her passion into a profession started photographing my family about 6 years ago. She has captured some of my most treasured pictures of my family. Mariana is creative and has an eye for beauty! She finds it in the mundane everyday life and creates magical images out of ordinary moments. Whether you're in your kitchen, bedroom, an open field, or a flower shop (just some of the places where we have taken pictures) I'm always amazed with the results. Mariana has this way about her that makes you feel comfortable and relaxed! My kids love her too, they think she came over to play with them which gets their full cooperation. We are always having fun and laughing when we are together which translates into beautiful family pictures!!!"

Turning your family photo session into a family date

You guys are running late... suddenly your husband presses the brake, your child screams, the baby cries, your eyeliner slides and you have nothing to clean your black eye off with while you attempt to get ready for your photo session in the (moving) car!
This could have been just a nightmare scene, but it was reality for me so many times. From a dreamed photo session to a real nightmare! But guess what, I don't want this to happen to you! So it was thinking about all the possible stressful factors a photo session can bring that I reinvented and designed our luxurious photography experience. 

If you don't have experience yet, just bear with me. If you do, I'm sure you can relate...

Before we even start planning I know your plate is full, you're probably tired and potentially overwhelmed trying to manage life with little ones. It can be tough, time and energy could be lacking.

Just finding the right photographer who is aligned with your style and family needs is already challenging. If you're picky like me it could be almost an impossible mission!

After that, you still need to plan family outfits, location, make sure your baby isn't cranky or doesn't skip a nap. Make sure your husband isn't in a bad mood because he needs to pose to a random photographer he (and your kiddos) probably won't feel comfortable with.

On top of all that you need to feel great to smile, and connect with your family after having lost your temper with the eyeliner accident in the moving car. lol

You receive your images and all you can remember is your baby screaming because he was hangry and you don't feel like you looked your best for all the time you invested in this. Your dream gallery wall and photo album never become a reality because just thinking about starting the process to make them happen makes you dizzy!
