You can't go wrong with Maisi! She has taken photos of our family for the last three years and each time the experience was lovely and the pictures amazing! Her pictures just capture my kids personalities. The only problem is not wanting to buy every single picture!
The pictures that I have of my daughter and granddaughters, taken as a Mother's Day gift, are the best pictures of "us" girls that I have! They are informal and capture my grandchildren's personalities. A real treasure. And while Maisi took many pictures,it didn't take long. She is very efficient and a real pro. And..... fun to work with. Very good with all ages.
My family and I recently had a photo session with Maisi. She was beyond wonderful! I could not have asked for a better photographer! First, she came early and researched the best areas to conduct our session in my neighborhood. Next, she knew that my family was in from out-of-town and we had had my daughter's baptism earlier that day. Basically, we were trying to fit a lot of activities in one day. Maisi was very flexible with shooting the portion with my sisters and I first so that we could let the baby sleep a little bit longer.
When my daughter arrived, Maisi had a bunch of toys and other items to distract her and get the best images. She worked extremely fast and was definitely prepared to keep up with my toddler. The images that she captured are breathtakingly beautiful and made me cry. I am always on the other side of the lens and never in any of the photos. It melts my heart to finally have so many images of my entire family interacting with my child. I will forever treasure these photos.
I would highly recommend Maisi as a photographer for any event. She is extremely professional and possesses many skills when it comes to photography. She asks that you fill out a questionnaire before your session so that she knows about her subjects and how to get the best images during your session. If you live in or near Northern Virginia you will not be disappointed.
Maisi was wonderful to work with and our pictures are fantastic. Our kids had so much fun and it shows in the pictures. The pictures she took of our family will be treasured! I highly recommend Maisi and will use her again in the future.
Maisi Julian photographed our family on a beautiful September day in Old Town Alexandria and we couldn’t be more happier. Maisi is upbeat, friendly and funny and knows how to get the attention of a five year old. She took us to the perfect picture spot with a beautiful garden. It was a lot of fun for our family especially the young one. Thanks Maisi for capturing our family’s precious moments, I’m looking forward to some more beautiful pictures in the Spring time!
My family lives in Alexandria, VA. When our third child turned 3, we felt it was time for a nice family photo. You know, the kind you put in a frame! :) We were directed toward Maisi, and WOW! Let me just say that she has a way with children. She has a knack for getting them out of their shells. HECK, she was even able to get my husband to loosen up, who I swear is allergic to cameras. The end result was perfect looking pictures that my family will treasure until the end of time. If you are in the market for pictures, do yourself a favor and contact Maisi Julian Photography. You won't regret it.
Maisi took pictures of my 8 year old daughter and 11 year old son just before Christmas. I was late trying to get an appointment but she fit me in and sent digital files in just a week. The pictures were so lovely and captured my childrens' personalities. The session was easy. Maisi has children of her own which I think is helpful in understanding how to connect with kids to get them through a good session. She made my children comfortable and made it fun so that their natural smiles came through - challenging to do when not all your kids are excited about having their picture taken. I highly recommend!
Maisi is absolutely amazing. She is beyond WONDERFUL with children, catches their every, natural expression and has the ability to produce gorgeous pictures. I am overwhelmed with how professional and kind she is. Better than 5 stars! I am a customer for life. And to top it all off, her prices are so reasonable. It makes the process so much easier. Definitely a must use photographer for this area.
Maisi is a truly skilled photographer- a real professional. She was great with my 9 month old and 4 year old, and captured the most wonderful photos of both of them smiling and looking at the camera. Simultaneously! More than once! Real smiles, even, not just my daughter's "cheese" face. We took part in a mini session through my daughter's school and in ten minutes we ended up with a ton of beautiful shots- way more than I was expecting. I was blown away by the quality of the shoot. I can't imagine how amazing a full session would be, and I'll definitely book her the next time we need family photos. Worth every penny!
