See what past clients have said!

When I first started my practice, I dressed very casually for my appointments and I would always be questioned about my educational background by my clients. I felt like I had to prove myself before working with them. I was referred to Maria by a colleague and had her help me build a professional image. By presenting a professional, polished image my clients are so much more at ease when they first meet me. I feel like they are actually hearing what I am saying instead of questioning me because they are put at ease by my professional appearance. In addition, I am much more relaxed and confident on getting information across to them because I know they are hearing me, and not questioning my expertise based on my appearance. Working with Maria helped me take my practice to the next level. She is great!

It was a pleasure working with you, the feedback I received from everyone was very positive. I look forward to working with you in the future, and I will send a calendar invite for the launch party. My client was extremely pleased and wanted to have you dress him for the party.

At the last moment, my team of consultants felt it would be necessary to have a third eye during an upcoming photo shoot. This was to be the “shoot of shoots’ kicking off the media production project we were working on. We gave Maria very short notice, as the shoot was in a couple of days. She was the only image consultant we could find whose expertise and tastes fitted the needs of the project perfectly. Business, yet provocative. Stylish, yet purposeful. We crossed our fingers hoping she would be available and sure enough, she was! She was able to understand the exact look I was going for. She also upgraded my image while keeping it authentic to my self perception. I highly recommend her if you want to take your image to the next level.

As a photographer it’s very important to choose who you collaborate with on various projects to help your work reach their potential. I had the opportunity to work with Maria for two curated photoshoots, one with a Mrs. Texas and the other with a Professional Cheerleader. When I first got in contact with Maria I was immediately impressed with the wealth of knowledge she had when it came to the imaging of yesterday and today. On both occasions Maria went above and beyond in styling my models. She even stayed on set and assisted the girls during the shoot. Whether our are a photographer doing a high profile photoshoot and needing your models professionally styled, a CEO needing a image revamp with a knowledgeable Corporate Image Consultant for your company or you’re just needing a whole new upscale wardrobe for yourself, Maria would be the first person I would contact.
