nostalgic photos for
the romantic dreamers

This is a great option for a family with small children that may need some time to warm up. Maybe you don't want to travel too far outside of the city, but you still want a scenic spot? The Storyteller session time can take me as far as the Snoqualmie Pass near Gold Creek Pond all the way back over to Tacoma, WA. My favorite locations to photograph family photos happen just near Seattle. I can help you choose the perfect spot based on what feels cool to you. Planning, and outfit styling is included with every session.

"If you are looking for a photographer who is going to make the entire process from start to finish so easy, then book Maria! She was such a pleasure to work with. My family and I had such a fun time during our studio session. We can not wait to work with her again!!"

Some of my favorite color palettes for family outfits that work well with almost any location and skin type are coordinated neutrals. Think creams, light browns, and soft blues. These hues work as your base to layer, accessorize, and pair with brighter colors.
