Hi there! I'm so happy you're here. My name is Mariana, and I'm a self-taught photographer based in Victoria, BC. Ever since I was little I have been fascinated by photography, and particularly portraiture. I believe there is a moment between "the stimulus and the response"; i.e. the second between when the photographer issues the command for a pose and the subject decides how to re-enact it, and that split second is where the most genuine human emotion is conveyed. My goal is to capture these candid, real moments, to give people invaluable moments to treasure for a lifetime.
This package is for any families, friend groups, organizations, and businesses who haven't gotten a solid picture together since 2012, and your photo albums and Facebook profiles aren't looking quite up-to-date. These sessions are meant to be lighthearted and fun, capturing everything that makes your unique group of people what it is today.
Mother's Day is a day to celebrate moms and everything they represent: unconditional love, courage, selflessness, devotion, kindness, and more. This Mother's Day, let's celebrate Mom by giving her a collection of invaluable memories that represent your family and everything she has done for your family, so that she can have these intimate moments to look back on and cherish forever.
For the families who want some candid, professional photos taken with their newly graduated son or daughter, this is for you. Bring the graduation cap, the prom dress or suit, and the university hoodie, and let me help you send your grad off to the beginning of their new journey with some invaluable memories for you to always look back on.
If you want a documentary-style photoshoot that captures real, genuine, intimate moments in your family's/friends'/workplace's day-to-day life, look no further. This package is designed to provide you with a collection of pictures that aren't only planned and posed, but document a story. For example, I may accompany you and your family on a hike, or sit in the background of a meeting at your workplace, capturing the dynamic between the people involved. Rather than spend much of the session guiding you with posing prompts, my main role in this particular session is to serve as a bystander in the background, capturing raw moments between people.
Are you Spider-Man? No. What?! That's crazy. How could I be Spider-Man? That'd mean I've been taking photos of myself this whole time. ...We're definitely two separate people.; Can you shoot a web, though? The only thing I ‚Äòshoot‘ are pictures.
