Happy. Compassionate. Creative. Fun.
Welcome to LensFlare Photo Design! I'm Maria, you're friendly neighborhood family photographer!
My personality is fun and laid back but always very professional, I truly want to take the best possible photos for your event. Having those memories to keep forever is so important and I don't take the responsibility lightly. It's your job to have a great time and look amazing and it's mine to get you beautiful photographs of those moments!
I grew up in a large Italian family and I love photographing fun families with lots of love! My strengths really lie in gathering all the family members together and getting great photographs of people just having fun and happy moments. Some people are deterred of photographing large families or reunions or just the rowdy bunch, but I love it! Having memories of how much fun you had, and the memories you made are so great and mean so much!
I started this business in 2008, while I was a photography and graphics teacher. I'm an active member in Connecticut Professional Photographers Association, and Professional Photographers of America, and stay up to date with the most current trends, technology and products. I still teach and love my job because it allows me to do what I really love on the weekends and over the summers, take photos!
I really enjoy taking family and kids photos. Having a family and child of my own, I know what a challenge getting everyone together and dressed can be. I appreciate the humor in the everyday things that happen with families and kids and they almost always make for the best photos with the most genuine smiles.
If you have an event, family portrait session, newborn, maternity or engagement and wedding, and you want those precious moments captured, then I'm your lady! I will be enthusiastic and dedicated to getting you the photographs you deserve from your special occasions. Contact me now if you think we'd be a great fit! I'd love to hear from you! You can also check out the nice things some people have had to say here!
