Hi, I am Araceli.

Welcome to Portraits by Araceli, where every snapshot tells a story of joy, love, and a sprinkle of whimsy! Hey, I'm Araceli – your friendly neighborhood photo enthusiast and a mom on a mission to turn ordinary moments into extraordinary memories.

My love affair with photography kicked off way back in my elementary days and has only grown more passionate over the last 15+ years. Now, with two little sidekicks of my own, I've mastered the art of capturing those candid smiles and fleeting moments that make life truly magical.

Specializing in Portraits, Seniors, Children, Families, and Small Events, I'm not just here to take pictures; I'm here to create visual stories that reflect the essence of you. With over 9 years of experience working with kiddos, I've perfected the art of turning photo sessions into fun-filled adventures. The more laughter, the better!

But it's not all about me and my camera – it's about YOU! Your unique personality, your quirks, your wild ideas – I'm all in for making our sessions as vibrant and one-of-a-kind as you are. Whether it's a casual family shoot, a senior portrait session, or a celebration of life's small victories, I'm here to capture the real, unfiltered, and downright awesome moments.

So, let's make some memories! Grab your favorite props, bring your infectious laughter, and let's turn your photo dreams into vibrant, heartwarming reality. Photography is not just about taking pictures; it's about creating timeless memories that you'll cherish for a lifetime. Let's make some magic happen! 📷

She’s a great photographer! I booked her for my headshots and she made me feel so comfortable and walked me through it. Her work is top tier! I can’t wait to rebook her for my sons photos in the future. If you need photos for any occasion I definitely recommend 10/10 :)
