Photography by May Arason-Li bio picture
  • Hello!

    Thanks for stopping by. In case you didn’t know, I love photography and I am fortunate to be able to share my passion with you. I simply cannot imagine going through life without photographs - there are just so many reasons for taking photos. To remember, to relive, to share, to learn, to tell a story, to create, to feel... I could go on forever. The wonderful thing about photographs is that they are instantaneous. And as we change through life, so do the images we want to capture. I believe in capturing beautiful, modern images for modern families. More importantly, I want to capture the connection between family members. I care very much about getting to know my clients and having fun during our sessions. I am not trying to create the perfect image of you - rather, real images of genuine happy, silly, fun and tender family moments. This site features my most recent session along with some personal images peppered in. I am so thrilled to have met so many wonderful people and they have all inspired me in one way or another.

    Please enjoy the photos on this site and by all means, please feel free to get in touch with me if you think my style and vision matches yours.

Keep your eyes on the stars and your feet on the ground

Kim asked me to photograph Vivi to document the end of her preschool years and I happily obliged. Miss Vivi is starting kindergarten in the fall and I’m a bit shocked by all this, especially when I started culling all the images and saw that she was no longer a baby, rather a little girl with […]
