Mari Maloney, Owner & Photographer
I started taking pictures when I was 8 years old and something clicked (literally and figuratively speaking). My lifelong passion for photography began to develop when I discovered I could use my camera as an instrument to create and capture a moment and make it last forever.
I became very active in photography in high school and started entering competitions and winning awards for my images. I have been classically trained since the age of 16 and I am always seeking out opportunities to learn more and refine my skills.
I founded Capture Studios in 2008 when I saw a need for portrait and family photography in the Southwest Michigan area. As a teacher for 30 years, I spent every day striving to bring out the best in each of my students. As a photographer, my goal is to bring out the best in each of my subjects and capture it in an incredible portrait!
A shoot at Capture Studios (or on location!) promises to be a fun, exciting, personal, and comfortable experience. I LOVE when my clients have an absolute blast during a session. Especially my seniors. When a teenage boy leaves with a genuine smile on his face, I know I’ve done my job.
By creating a fun, comfortable atmosphere where you can just be you, you’ll be able to get all the shots you need, plus more you didn’t even know you wanted!
I’m passionate about documenting all of life’s important moments, big and small. I specialize in:
- Families and Children
- Senior Portraits
- Weddings and Engagements
- Underwater Images
- Sports Photography
- Corporate Head Shots
- Business and Branding Photography
