Photoshoot with Marissa Maharaj

I am so excited to share with you a photo shoot I did recently with Marissa Maharaj of Maharaj Photography.  Marissa is a photographer based out of LA.  She and I went to college together, never had any classes together, but we were connected through a creative network of friends.  I always admired her style in college and really just became a huge fan of her beyond our friendship once I saw her incredible photography skills and heard her beautiful music.
I was so excited when we started chatting this past summer about an artistic trade of sorts.  I illustrated and designed her graduation announcements from college this past year and on my end it resulted in getting to do a shoot with Marissa while she was visiting Seattle recently!  I was so excited for this opportunity and I think the photos turned out so beautifully!  She also shot the photos for my upcoming lookbook which I am putting together this week to show you!  Thank you so much Marissa for your hard work and for sharing your talent with me and my blog readers.  I always feel so awkward having others photograph me but the experience was so fun and I feel so pretty seeing these photos!


Thank you so much Marissa!  The photos turned out amazing despite my natural incline to be so totally awkward in photos :)  If you are looking for a lifestyle and wedding photographer, be sure to check out Marissa's website.

I swear, when I saw these my first though was to post "Moorea, you are such a stunning woman - inside and out" and yet, Kirst said that before I could. ;) But it's so true! You ARE a stunner! Inside AND out!

Lovely pics, girl!

Sooo beautiful!!! It cannot be believed that you're anything but completely poised and graceful and cool. These photos prove it! You just pretend and say you're awkward to be modest for us. I get it.
