I’ve always wanted to do some kind of personal photo shoot but I am a quite a shy person. Maki made me feel so comfortable during the session, and her guidance during the shoot was awesome! Maki’s location choices were superb, and I could not be happier with the final product. From getting hair and makeup done right in the studio by the very talented Amanda from A to Z Make Up Artistry, to the end of the session, the whole experience was amazing! Thank you Maki for making me feel so beautiful!

Anyone can take a photo but it takes a uniquely talented individual to capture the true essence of one’s body and spirit. Whether it’s your first time in front of the camera or you’re no stranger to the lens, Maki consistently goes above and beyond to make her clients feel comfortable and confident. her work is that of pure beauty, though I believe this is just an extension of who she is as a person on the inside and out. I have and will continue to recommend Maki to anyone.

As someone who has not seen their twenties in some time and has had two children, I had given up my illusions of being a supermodel and was quite nervous about being in front of the camera. I was immediately put at ease with a smile and a warm welcome from Macarena in a trendy, chic studio setting. I was absolutely AMAZED by my makeup and hair makeover compliments of A to Z Make Up Artistry who was able to take my suggested concept and bring it to life. Thanks to the helpful, fun and upbeat coaching from Macarena the session flowed and not only did my nerves melt away, I actually had a blast!!! The beauty session was rivaled only by the finished product. It was transformative to be able to see the best version of myself in a tangible way. All the elements from the suggested outfit choices, concept, style, make-up and editing made for photographs that were all STUNNING. The pictures made me feel sexy, empowered, and absolutely beautiful!! Not to mention that I had a very happy husband on my hands. Although the session was initially for an anniversary present, they ended up being more for me. It was the perfect way to celebrate, uplift, and give attention to myself as a woman in a valuable way that I don’t ordinarily take the time to do. It was such a fantastic experience from start to finish and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to embrace their beauty in a unique and meaningful way. Thanks Maki Fotos!!!

Working with Maki was no less than a magical experience! The way I see it, women deserve to celebrate their inner strength as well as their outer beauty and photography illuminates the soul like no other medium. What better way to celebrate. Would do it again and again and again!

My experience with Macarena from start to finish was exceptional! I had admired her work for a long time and finally got the courage to book her for a beauty session. After having 2 children and dressing in yoga pants most days, I was very nervous. I booked in to celebrate my 30th and I went for the whole package! Maki was there every step of the way: initial consultation, phone call follow up, guidance on posing during the session, wardrobe selection and of course, Amanda’s phenomenal hair and makeup skills! Once I was all ready for the camera, I felt like a queen- SERIOUSLY! Maki made me feel so comfortable and achieved my exact vision in mind- I was in awe of the results. The best present I could have ever given myself was confidence! Thank you Maki for putting the spark back into my life! I can’t wait for the next time and I won’t be waiting for another milestone.

Macarena and I have known each other since we were young, and watching her become the photographer that she is has truly been a journey I’m grateful to be a part of. The Beauty Sessions was an incredible leg of that journey and the experience was something I had never had before. I gave myself entirely to her team and, at the end, got to see their perception of me. It was humbling and made me feel feminine and sexy. I can’t say enough wonderful things about what all of the girls did for me. Those photos will always be some of my favorites because of the potential she brought out in me. That is her gift!
