I had the pleasure of being photographed by the very talented Mariela  on 5/22/16. Mariela told me to meet her in the botanical gardens at 7.15 p.m. because that’s when the light would be perfect for our photo shoot.

I had an instant connection with Mariela and felt like I was in very good hands. She brought several scarves and jewelry and we played around with several options before she decided on something that would match my skin tone as well as my eye color perfectly.

She even applied some make up to make me feel extra special. We had so much fun together!!! Mariela has a play set on her iphone that will put you at ease. She even brought a little loud speaker so we could dance to the music. Mariela was not afraid to lie down on the concrete and the grass to get the best shots.

I think the results show how much experience Mariela has with color compositions. She is a true artists and I have received dozens of compliments on the photos that she took.

Mariela is a top notch photographer that is guaranteed to put a smile on your face!
