from my dear clients

Wonderful exerpience

We had such a wonderful experience with Daniela of Sereia Photography. She captured some beautiful smiles in one of our family’s favorite places. She took so many fabulous photos that narrowing them down is the hard part. We are so happy she was able to capture a moment in time for us.

Organized and streamlined

My boys and I had a wonderful experience with Daniela! Trying to get all three boys smiling and looking in the same direction is no small feat. She suggested the perfect setting for the look I was going for, and I am so HAPPY that I got the pictures I was imagining!! I love that I can pay online and the whole process has been so organized and streamlined. Thank you so much!

Already booked my next session

I used Sereia Photography to take some family photos. This it was not my first time hiring a photographer, but I have to say it was my first time, that I was blown away with the results. Daniella was very patient with my son, played with him during the whole shoot and the experience fun! She also brings several props for a photo shoot, and each photo looks completely different than one another. She really amazing, I already booked my next session for March when she will be in Southern California.
