“I STRIVE TO CAPTURE A TRUE, RAW, AND RICH CONNECTION FROM THIS TIME IN YOUR LIFE THAT DESERVES TO BE REMEMBERED FOREVER. MY PHOTOGRAPHS ARE MENT TO STOP TIME AS YOU MOVE THROUGH IT”
LETS GET REAL BEFORE YOU MEET ME.
I GET IT.
We all have insecurities. They SUCK. They smallest most beautiful women we see in magazines... they are insecure too. Those women who FLAUNT it with all those curves and rock it, while I look in the mirror at my flat ass... they have them too. But when my mom died. She wasn't telling me no I don't want to take any more photos... my hair is all gone. She smiled. Made silly faces with me and KNEWWWW. SHE KNEW. That when she was gone. That is ALL I had left. That is what I am still holding on to today.
So yes, below is a beautiful photo of me, a beautiful photo of myself and my family. Ive picked them apart. Like we all do. But you know the only one who is seeing that flaw, that insecurity?
Me. Don't lose time. Its gone too fast.
Hi Ya'll, I'm Mazie
Im a mother of two beautiful souls, wife to a handsome loving southern man. Before I go on about my current life. I feel compelled to tell you about my recent past life and what has happened in the span of four years.
As a young adult there were many bumps in the road... when I say bumps I mean mount Everest. My son was in. tragic accident that took his life, by the grace of god and the universe he was given a second chance to live. I went through a nasty custody battle, lost a very close friend, one week later held my fathers hand as he passed, miscarried my 2nd baby, got pregnant with our rainbow baby, lost my mother and also held her hand as she took her last breath on this earth. Most recently we lost my step farther. So let me tell you how important photographs are... because that's all I have.
Here is a little more of my easier part of life.
Raised as a military brat and married into the military life. You probably know me best as a New Mexico lifestyle photographer. I spend most my days chasing the wild souls I call children. Its a beautiful chaotic mess. I run on caffeine, sarcasm, fried food and a few of my favorite cuss words (I promise I won't let them slip in-front of your kids lol).
I consider myself a homebody but love to travel.
I love big belly laughs, gift giving, supporting others and snuggling my babies.
One of my biggest goals in life is to constantly document my babies as they grow. I want to relive these moments, when they are off starting their own families. This is what matters most to me. Knowing I can play a part in preserving your precious memories is such an honor.
