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.

Let the music play on

When Jody told me that Brooklyn (B) loved listening to music on her iPod, it got me thinking that we should bring her music to the shoot. Not only does Brooklyn have great taste in music – she listens to her parents’ music library; she had the cutest iPod case in the shape of a […]

She loves her music!! Thanks for the wonderful shoot May:)

As long as I’m laughing with you

Oh. My. Goodness. These two kids, Claire and Brandon. Seriously, so so so adorable, with their matching blonde curls, brown eyes and cheeky smiles. They could be two of the happiest kids ever. We had so much fun, we joked, laughed and giggled through this whole session, which flew by so quickly, I was a […]

Beautiful photos!

I’ve got sunshine in my pocket

I had a great time with these two kiddos recently – they’ve both grown so much since the fall. We had a great evening for a shoot – warm and lots of sunshine but best of all, no bugs! We headed to the park for some balloons, ice cream and silliness – because who doesn’t love balloons and […]

May, thanks again for a such a great shoot! The kids had so much fun and you made it so relaxing and easy. The pictures as always are amazing, and really capture C & V’s kids personalities. I am so excited to frame some of these! Also a big thanks for all the advice on how to dress the kids – your advice always works!

You have been taking our photos for years, and each time have a fresh idea to make them look different. Much appreciated.


And I’ll be the greatest fan of your life

Hello Baby Everett! This handsome little dude’s arrival was much anticipated by everyone around him and it was so wonderful to finally meet him at last. Parents Mark and Kristy have been adjusting nicely to life as new parents as we all know that babies don’t come with manuals so everything is pretty much learned as you […]
