"Viara has been a magnificent photographer for our family since day one (we purchased her "year-in-the-life" package, so we see her once a month for an entire year.)

I was a little nervous for our first shoot - it was January, it was dark and depressing (as January can be) but simple photos of us making dinner, the kids playing together in the back room, and the family sharing a meal turned out to be warm and funny and a true reflection of our typical family life.

Viara is very professional and also personable; sometimes you're not sure she's there (to get the truest pictures of your family) and other times she's chatting alongside you hiking through the woods.

You know those tiny, quirky mannerisms that each person in your family has? Those things you'll always associate with that one person, and you smile every time you think of that person and their quirk? Viara magically finds it, captures it, and understands what it is so she can provide that to you.

That is a rare gift - Viara has a talent like no other photographer I've ever worked with."

Where do I begin. Viara is an amazing photographer, she has incredible talent and creativity.

I was amazed at how many precious moments she was able to capture on camera. Her photos tell a story and beautifully capture a moment in time.

"Being conscious and uncomfortable in front of the camera, I found Viara very easy to work with.

She's friendly and engaging, captures the mood and emotions well, and makes the experience less awkward.

Definitely helps create memories. Recommend her to anyone who feels uncomfortable in front of the camera."

-Nida S.

"Amazing person and photographer, makes you feel so comfortable while she is capturing the real moments!"

-Stephanie N.

Absolutely fantastic! So personable and easy to work with. A true professional- and her work is incomparable. Definitely one of Kingston's most talented photographers!!

-Sheri S.


"Neither of us feel particularly photogenic, but you made us comfortable. You snapped candid shots without us realizing it. No self-conscious posing or 'stiff grins'  as has been the case in the past."
