I'm not going to give this looonng story about how I've been doing photography for over 15 years and I went to school and received some associates degree from Antonelli Institute. I'm about to get real for a minute. Completely REAL. 

I am a wife and a mom. I have been in business and the service industry for years. I know how I want to be treated as a mother of three and I know how I want my kids to be treated. I don’t want to feel like I’m rushed when I have an appointment. I don’t want to feel like just another client. I WANT TO FEEL LIKE MY HARD EARNED MONEY IS WORTH ME PAYING WHAT YOU'RE ASKING.

My clients are treated how I want to be treated… with my time, patience and kindness. They have my undivided attention from start to finish. They are the reason I am in this business and that is the least I can do to show my gratitude.

That's what you see today. Magical photos I make with passion and imagination. I take my time to plan out the sessions from the props, outfits, and locations. I like to capture the uniqueness of each person and bring it to the session. Your daughter is a princess, let’s get her all dressed up and take her somewhere that looks like a palace. It’s your baby’s first birthday…. THAT’S A HUGE DEAL!! Let’s be extra and make it a big deal! I promise to deliver you the images that will make you feel the moments every time you look at them. Thank you for trusting me. 

I look forward to creating with you!
Maura Viola
