"With Thalia's crazy busy schedule, she almost didn't have a chance to get senior photos, but Maura worked with us to make it happen.  She took the stress out of the experience by suggesting shoot locations and clothing options (she even brought extra props and outfits which coordinated with the clothing we brought).  Maura arranged for hair and make-up, making it a fun and relaxing experience, not to mention the beautiful photos which I will have forever.  It was a great experience!"

Shooting with Maura was one of the most amazing, positive experiences I have ever had.  She has such a warm personality and is HILARIOUS at the same time.  She makes you feel so comfortable shooting and posing and I can't wait to do another shoot with her.  She's the best!!

Thanks, Maura for capturing ME."

Oh my goodness, we had a blast!  I got to watch my girl totally shine during our shoot.  Maura's location suggestions were on point and Mary was so relaxed and at ease during the shoot that her genuine expressions came easily.  Every picture Maura took was perfect...I'm still having a hard time deciding which one's to choose....I want them all :-) 
I would recommend Maura Varley Photography to ALL my family and friends...and we will definitely call on her again!  - Lowry (Mary's mom)

Working with Maura was such a fun experience!  I normally hate having my pictures taken, but she made it incredibly fun and totally entertaining.  Not only did I get pictures with my motorcycle, but we also lit stuff on FIRE!  She really was interested in creating images that reflected my interests - which made the session so much fun. All the pictures came out great.  Having my senior portraits done with her was such a great experience, I would definitely recommend her to my friends!
