I seek to capture the natural, happy faces of people having a good time.

Do you feel awkward in front of a camera?

Is it a struggle to know how to pose, where to put your hands, where to look, what to do with your feet? Trust me, I feel that too!! As a shy person, I completely understand how unsettling it can be, and I can help.

When you experience a session with me, you will experience the feeling of complete comfort as I guide you effortlessly through natural prompts that showcase your actual self and leave stiff grins and awkward poses out of the picture (literally!)

Let me ask you this. When you look back on your portraits with your family, those you love the most, how would you like to feel? Lingering embarrassment when remembering how uncomfortable you were at the time? How about a warm fuzzy feeling when you recall the loving expression in your spouse’s eyes, the genuine spark of joy on your child’s face?

You don’t have to take it from me.

Here’s what one client said about her portraits:

Before working with Aquilina I felt nervous on how I would look in ways that are out of a photographers control. After working with Aquilina I felt amazing! I felt so beautiful… all of my insecurities went away.” -Marina S.
