About Mara

I love to photograph children in a way that reveals their true souls, while also conveying their innocence and beauty. I see things that you may not, by viewing the world through my own filter, one that is grounded in my own life experience. I watched my mother die of cancer when she was too young. My children were little when she died so they will not remember (without my reminders) her devilish humor, biting wit and giving soul. Losing her served to highlight the unique and special way that I want my children to remember me and our family relationship. I honor the family above all else because I know how quickly what we take for granted can be lost.

I know that the only way for me to really remember the beautiful moments that happen everyday is seeing images that transport me back to that moment in time. I would like to give you this gift with the images I create of your family and children.
