About - Naomi Maya

My aspiration is to preserve the moments in your life that can never be recreated.

Hi! I'm Naomi... a professional photograher with 10+ years experience, living in Victoria, BC with my husband and our two boys.

You’re probably here because a special milestone is coming up and it’s too important to leave to cell phone photos. Maybe it’s your child’s 1st birthday, or a wedding, or a family reunion… whatever it is, you know it’s going to be something you want captured it artistically and beautifully.

You might also be here because you love beautiful photos just for the sake of art. If you’re like me, you get inspired looking at amazing nature photos and wish you could be transported to that place, if even just for a few minutes - like a mini get-away from your busy life. Being outdoors revitalizes you and relaxes you at the same time. You realize that the present moment is all we ever have, and that is enough to make it worthy of photographing – so come with me and let’s go outside! I’ll bring my camera!

What to Expect

I will make sure you get to experience the actual moment and aren't distracted by my camera. When you work with me, you’ll not only feel comfortable and relaxed, you’ll also like how you look in the photos because that feeling shines through! We will have fun, but you don’t have to be lively or outgoing if that's not your natural state. (It's not mine... people describe me as calm, down to earth and patient.) I'll just ask you to be yourself, and if you need a litle direction because you're feeling awkward, I'll give you something to do, so you can focus on a task instead of the camera.

My Style: My style is authentic, timeless and artistic... I like images that are uncluttered and minimalistic. I edit subtly with precise artistic intent, and I give myself very high standards for my work because I know how important it is to the families who will treasure it for years to come.

Customer Testimonials

Receiving emails like these are the reason I love what I do!

My Vision

I believe photography helps humanity understand each other better. It brings compassion to the viewer when we look at photographs of people or places who are different (or less fortunate) than us. I also believe it brings compassion for nature and the smallest creatures on earth because we get a chance to see things we don’t normally get to see in person.

My personal mission is:

  • ~ To bring out the beauty in all living things, in amazing and authentic ways
  • ~ To create experiences worth remembering
  • ~ To bring an appreciation of nature to younger generations
  • ~ To capture the little things in life that might otherwise go unnoticed
