The three sessions I have had over this past year have really allowed me to see my progression into a mature, young woman. I chose Marie and Blink of An Eye Photography to capture my final moments as a high school senior because she is unlike any photographer. Marie was passionate about unveiling who I am as an individual and made sure that every session was reflective of my personality. I feel so blessed that my path crossed with Marie and know our friendship from this experience will continue to flourish!
I just wanted to send you an email thanking you for all that you've done for me and my family. You have such a kind soul and giving heart; you without a doubt exemplify God through your work.
Your pictures have allowed me to see beauty in myself that I didn't know existed.
Working with you is such a pleasure! Your bright personality and warm sense of humor can make anyone feel comfortable and at ease!
I will always remember how you've impacted my life in such a positive way.
What a lovely session it was! We wouldn't have dreamed of choosing another photographer. The combination of your incredible talent along with your warm and kind heart made our experience unforgettable.
Thank you for such amazing photographs. I will cherish them forever.
As your children age, you look back over all your photos. If you are like me, you have thousands. Some are really good shots. Some not so good.
I do have one piece of advice from someone who is watching her baby of four getting ready to graduate:
Spend the money during their lives at milestones and get professional photos taken!
There are lots of photographers out there who have a camera and take good pictures at reasonable prices. However, very few have the gift of photography like Marie Janssen.
Many professional photographers over edit their photos so they no longer look natural. Marie has the gift of taking very natural photos that are pretty much perfect as they are. By getting to know the people she photographs, she brings out their natural beauty and their true personality. I can also speak to the fact that, having lost one child in his 20's, I treasure all our photos of him but regret not having real professional photos taken of him. School photos do not count!
So my advice:
Save your money and plan to spend the money at milestones and hire a pro!
Let Aunt Myrtle Jean take those day to day shots, but she can't hold a candle to a real photographer and professional like Marie Janssen."

When deciding who to shoot my senior photos, Marie instantly came to mind.
She did an unbelievable job with not only highlighting my features, but also capturing my personality through my photos.
This is what my goal was, for people to catch a glimpse of the real me and she did that outstandingly. I truly admire every single one of my photos.
