Senior session in rural Alamance County.


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!

Gorgeous, country senior session featuring lovely floppy hat.

Around my sophomore year I started looking into photographers, and as a beginning photographer I was very selective on who would take my senior portraits. I chose Blink of an Eye Photography because I loved everything about her style, editing process, and how she captures her clients as people. I love how her photos look true and natural and really bring out the features that make you stand out. Every interaction I’ve had with Marie has been extremely rewarding and if I had to do senior year all over again I would no doubt choose her as my photographer

My senior session was filled with beautiful creativity and laughter. It was one of the most free and relaxed shoots. Thank you again! I couldn't imagine a more perfect time!

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.



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."
