nostalgic photos for
the dreamers

In my years of photographing families, I've found that a longer session time allows everyone enough time to warm up, relax, and have fun in front of the camera. Maybe you don't want to travel too far outside of the city, but you still want a scenic spot? This session includes 60-90 minutes of photo time, and personalized outfit styling. The Storyteller session time can take me anywhere your heart desires that is one hour away from Seattle--longer travel times simply require an additional travel fee. My favorite spots to photograph family photos can happen right in the comfort of your own home.

BACK TO investment

"If you are looking for a family 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!!"

what to wear  //

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