    Martika was a pleasure to work with. She was available to meet quickly and scouted the perfect location prior to our shoot. She took so many beautiful photos that it was very hard to decide which to choose. I highly recommend Martika! Her finished product was perfect! She did a great job photographing my young children! We definitely plan to work with Martika again.

    Frequently asked questions

    I tailor my sessions to each client's needs so I like to chat with you first to see exactly what your needs are and send you a detialed estimate so we are clear what all the charges are and there are no surprises.  I also give a portrait tip sheet for headshots and family sessions.  

    I have actually invested more person funds in my photography education than in my law school education.  I take classes and workshops yearly and my work shows the investment.
