Ava Mauriello is an experienced photographer in the Los Angeles area. She has a bachelor's degree in Media Arts. She was trained in photography by a newborn photography company where she photographed hundreds of adorable newborn babies. She then went on to photograph weddings, engagements, website photos, actor headshots, but found that she loved to focus on staged photo shoots for entrepreneurs. I love helping entrepreneurs make their dreams a reality. I also love the newborn photography because it is rewarding seeing the moms' genuine excitement and love for their babies.
I love telling stories and communicating a meaningful message. It is so great when you have the power to make that moment so beautiful. The use of lighting and angles can really transform a person and capture them in their best light. I like capturing the best version of a person and seeing their pure joy. They sometimes are almost in disbelief of the beauty of the photos. It makes me so happy to make my clients happy.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I really enjoy taking photos of female entrepreneurs for their social media, websites and marketing materials. I enjoy hearing their stories about what they believe in. I recently shot some photos for a young woman going into consulting for healthcare and it made me happy to know that these photos were going towards a good cause. I also like to shoot the photos outside if possible and have the light softly highlighting their hair and faces. It has a majestic and gorgeous outcome. The soft golden sunlight is priceless.
