HELLO HELLO

I have been crazy busy with wedding season, doing editorial work , focussing on family life, engagement shoots, boudoir shoots,

senior sessions, freelancing for Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, teaching makeup lessons, cutting hair, coloring hair,

and changing diapers.

Please check out the new site, show some love and follow the blog. Can’t wait to share with everyone all the recent work and fun things I have been up to!

enjoy.

 

I have been loving this mini break from work, but am so excited to get back into gear come this October/November.

My husband and I are expecting our second baby in mid September. So I haven’t been taking on many gigs, due to the fact that this pregnancy has been a real kick in my butt! I was on bed rest towards the start, then was told everything was good to go. I did a few weddings in the spring… 12 between AZ and CA… and then stopped in June. I tossed in some freelance hours with Bobbi Brown and other photographers, and ended my season right in time to go back on bed rest. This time I had a 3 week stay in the hospital for preterm labor and my water broke way too early, at 30 weeks! By the grace of God, I resealed, and have been at home for the last 3 weeks. I am doing one makeup gig for a dear friend’s maternity photos, between now and when I have Henry. Which I am praying I have him in the next week or so.

It has been such a blessing that I didn’t book past June/July for any big weddings, I would of never known how to cancel on a client!

I am looking forward to working with my select brides for the upcoming wedding season. I am taking on one wedding in October, in Colorado, for my best friend who is getting hitched.

Then November I am only taking on 3 weddings. Being that I will have a new baby, I figured start small and build up to the December weddings, where I will take on 4. Starting in 2013 I am a 4 wedding a month gal. I have decided I would rather focus more personally on a select number of brides, instead of taking on 2-4 weddings a weekend.

Its great to know who I am working with, and make the bride and bridal party feel extremely cared for during their time with me. I have had weekends in the past where on a Friday- Sunday, I have literally done 6+ weddings and touched over 30 faces! It is just crazy! So my new goal is focus on intimate weddings and share those precious moments with the bride and party.

I do have slots available for photo shoot work, and wedding for 2012 and 2013. If you are interested in booking a trail, please email me at mgwalters14@gmail.com

You can check out portfolio work at my facebook page.

Thanks for keeping up with me,

This was a fun styled shoot to be a part of. Thanks to miss Charity over at

Charity Maurer Photography.

check out the rest of the photos at the link above.

I showed you a fun lil sneak peak a couple days ago. Now that the rest of the images are up on Charity’s site, I thought I would share them with you all as well. This shoot is going to be featured on a couple other fun sites as well. The couple is truly in love, which always makes it great for photos. Cara, is a sophomore in college, and a love to work with. We wanted to keep her sweet innocent face clean, and natural. Fun pops of pink on the cheek and lips. Neutral eye, with a bit a shimmer.

enjoy!

Thanks Charity for having me work on this shoot!

XOXO,

Mariana Marie

This was such an amazing shoot to be a part of. First of, the couple is so cute! They had the most genuine love for each other. Sometimes you do these “inspired” shoots, and you end up with models, instead of a real couple. So it was such a treat to work with 2 people that were so in love with each other. They were newly engaged when we met to work together. He is a woodworker, and she a yoga instructor. Such an awesome down to earth couple.

The Project Wedding, is a huge website, and blog that features REAL WEDDINGS! Which I love. The couples engagement session is also up on the blog. Paper Antler, a husband and wife duo, shot the sessions. They are inspiring! Check out their goal, the Fifty Nifty, to put an end to sexual and human traffic. I have a heart for young girls, who are being trafficked. Their project is right up my alley.

Here is a list of the other amazing Vendors involved in the shoot.

BoHo Home and Farm

For starters, The Blog is Amazing.

Caroline, and I have become great friends. She walks me through life. I am so blessed to have her apart of mine and my families life.

Her blog, BoHo Home and Farm is sweet and organic. She has created a warm space, for people to enjoy her reads. Not only is her site an active blog, but it also has a shop attached to it. You can purchase great lil gifts, and organic free range eggs, and veggies. Her Home is an actual farm located in the heart of the city of Phoenix. It is such an inviting and safe place for many. You feel that when you arrive. BoHo offers Jam and Canning classes. Caroline of course teaches them all.

So when she asked me to do her makeup for her recent photo shoot, of course I said yes!

It was all out doors in her lovely back yard farm.

The photos were taken by: the wonderful and talented Diana Elizabeth

XOXO
