Your Southern Oregon Maternity & Newborn Photographer

Hi, I'm Mariel

We had the best experience with Mariel! Very cozy environment, she put a lot of effort into getting the best shots and ensuring our little one was comfortable. The images look beautiful and very professional and we received them in a timely manner. Highly recommend, she is worth every penny! - Jessica Wright

It’s very clear that Mariel is a dedicated photographer. She puts the safety of the clients first. Her images are truly a work of art as she puts much love in all she does. I have had both my maternity and newborn photos taken in her cozy studio. I’m very happy that she captured these precious moments.  -Deserea Smith

Mariel is an incredible photographer with an artistic eye that impresses me every time we have a session with her. Her style is timeless and she is kind and patient (especially with our little one). She has a great little studio with perfect props and outfits. Questions are always answered quickly, and the proofs are ready for review before you know it. Mariel has done our mother and baby photos, our family photos, and our baby's one year old and cake smash and bath photos. I look forward to future sessions with her. - Aubrey Schmid

We had a shoot with Mariel to get some newborn shots of our twin boys. They were two months old, a little late for typical newborn shots but Mariel was still able to get them in the most precious posed (I have no idea how). The pictures came out beautifully, better than I could have hoped for. She's also a sweet person and made us feel so comfortable during our shoot. We will schedule with her again and couldn’t recommend her more to others.  - Lacey Lee

Can’t recommend Mariel enough! We first met when we had newborn photos done. We were so happy with the experience that there was no question we would have her do our baby’s one year birthday/cake smash photos as well. We have also had family photos with her! Mariel was so gentle and patient with our baby and made us feel so comfortable during our sessions. All of our photos are stunning - we get so many compliments from family and friends. My only regret is not finding her sooner and having maternity photos with her! Klamath Falls is very lucky to have such a talented photographer in the area.  -  Sarah Girardi

"Mariel was an excellent choice for our wedding! She made me feel absolutely beautiful on the wedding day and I had a lot of fun taking the bridal shots with her. She made me feel at ease and comfortable. She knew what she was doing and was creative in the way she used our venue to capture the essence of the wedding. She was fully capable of wrangling all our family members and keeping us on time- never an easy feat! We received a preview of the wedding pictures a few weeks after our wedding in the form of a slide-show to music that Mariel had created. Talk about a bonus! Both my husband and I cried when we saw how beautiful the pictures were and how Mariel had captured our day so well with all our family and friends. She is pure magic! We recently received all the edited pictures and are incredibly happy with them! I am looking forward to getting those magical and ethereal pictures on the walls! Thank you, Mariel, for your fine and excellent craftsmanship. ~ Elise Palm

Mariel is our go to photographer for all our family photos. She is incredibly adaptable which is critical when capturing memorable moments with 3 kids under 4 years old. Our family feels comfortable with her, she brings a sense of ease to coax those little personalities to translate on camera. We are also impressed with her keen eye during post production, photos are polished without looking fabricated. We highly recommend her and are very excited to welcome her to our community. - Rejeana Jackson

I live six hours away from my wedding venue. I had to make all arrangements over the phone, needless to say that was nerve wracking. Upon meeting Mariel, on my wedding day, I was immediately put at ease. I was so impressed with Mariel’s professionalism, go with the flow attitude, and her engagement with my family and friends. She was so easy to work with and very accommodating. She did not miss a special moment and the quality of her photos is impressive. I would highly recommend her.   - Kati Baker
