Ukulele Tones and Sunny Days

I am so excited to introduce you all to Grace! Getting the chance to photograph this beautiful girl was such a privilege and visiting with her was so special!

Grace is such a beautiful person who loves expressing her heart through music, family ministry, and most of all her love for the Lord. She has a beautiful voice that echoes her heart for Christ. Grace is an amazing singer and songwriter and she recently released an album called, Where I Belong. Her album is beautiful and when I asked her which song was her favorite, she responded, "I love each song differently, because I was writing them at different moments in my life. Each song represents what I went through while I was at different places on the road." What you all might not know, is that Grace and her family travel the world in a bus and a mini van sharing the gospel and singing music that they have written. Grace plays the ukulele, mandolin, and piano. Her favorite instrument is the ukulele and I so enjoyed her playing while I photographed her. Grace is a modest person who allows Christ to shine through her and she has been able to impact so many people through her life. God has blessed her with a beautiful voice and she and her family join in song to glorify Him.

Welcome

Hello and Welcome to Treasured Moments Studio!!!

Creating this website has been a desire of mine for quite a while now and I am so thrilled to see it come to light!

When I was very young and I discovered how a camera worked, well, let’s just say that I have been clicking the shutter ever since. I started with sunrises/sunsets, flowers, and my Dad gratefully handed over the job of organizing all the photos to me! (Nothing gets lost........ Well sometimes, but it always gets found!) ;) I continually strive to be au fait (detailed in knowledge) in photography. It has always been so important to me to define each image I take. How can I see my setting differently, how could I make this picture better, how can I turn this 100 word picture, into 1,000? "Photography for me is not looking, it's feeling. If you can't feel what your're looking at, then your're never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures." -Don Mccullin  

I have always loved looking at photos, whether it be a family Christmas picture, birth announcement, a wedding gallery, to photos on someone's fridge. When I realized that photographing such an important moment in anyone's life could bless them for years to come, I couldn't wait to start this business. Being able to photograph… no, being a part of an important moment in a person's life is such a privilege to me.

I hope that you will enjoy the sessions posted and thoughts that I share. Leave me comments!! I love hearing from you!

Jusqu'à la prochaine fois,

Maria
