the lens

Mariah LaVache-Dascoli

A deeper look: 

creating a visual masterpiece that perfectly encapsulates the true essence of who you are. Like a skillful writer penning a heartfelt novel, weaving together your emotions, your laughter, and your tears, creating a visual story that is uniquely yours. With each click of the shutter, seeking to leave no trace but to leave a lasting impact, showcasing the beauty of our planet and reminding us of the importance of real life moments.

I will be your compass, helping you navigate through the choices and decisions that lay before you. Like a humble explorer, my camera in hand, we venture into the unknown, capturing moments that will transport you to far-off lands and ignite your sense of adventure. Together, we will create a masterpiece gallery that will be cherished for generations to come.  

In a world where authenticity is rare, I strive to create candid and authentic portraits, 

in the early 90's to present day, photography has been apart of my life from the start. Even at a young age, friends knew me as "the girl with the camera". Camera always at the ready...cvs prints, cheaply put together wall collages + scrapbooking. Yearbook committee in middle school.. When you sit back and take a look at the bigger "picture" we tend to document everything
