How does she do it? 3 boys, one husband and a business? She is the envy of the party. Her photography has the perfect blend of edge and sentiment. Not many people can do that. This is a woman who is going places and fast! But, don't take my word for it...GO NOW and view her stream.

Marina takes fantastic and unique photos. To me what stands out about them the most (aside from the fantastic lighting, composition and post processing that are present in every photo on her stream) is the way she has the ability to truly capture the mood. When you are looking through her photos you can feel the excitement in the maternity pics, her beach shots seem to capture the free spirit of the island perfectly, you can feel the love that comes from the couples she works with. She is able to capture all that in just one click.. I admire her work and as long as Marina keeps uploading, I will keep coming back for more :) *Kyle

There are so many wonderful photographers out there, but of my favorite, Marina is in the top three. Her work ranges from edgy to soft, vibrant to muted, classic to "oh, I've never seen that before!" Her post-processing is AMAZING and I love her eye for details and angles. It helps that she is absolutely gorgeous (love her ink!) and that her boys are the kind I hope my little girl wants to hang around with when she's older. Marina, girl -- you ROCK!

Marina has one of the most inspirational streams on Flickr. She covers such a wide range of subjects, moods, and angles in her work, yet every shot still echoes her personal artistic voice. She is one seriously awesome artist. I will be stalking her stream often!

Let's see. I discovered Marina's stream not long after joining Flickr a few months back. I remember what caught my eye the most was her attention to detail. Her compositions are always perfect and there's always so much emotion behind her shots. Be they shots of her handsome boys, or her self-portraits, or shots from her paid jobs. Everything is wonderfully warm and beautiful. I also love her use of PS to give her photos more interest. Her stream continually inspires me daily to be a better photographer and also to be a good parent to my children. Thank you Marina for sharing your wonderful work.

Marina rocks the camera in every way. She is as cool in person as she is through her stream. I've got mad love for Marina. Prepare to take a trip through her gallery. It's an awesome ride.

Marina is a fantastic momma, photographer and friend. I constantly admire her photos. Her little boys? Too cute for words. I hope to meet her someday. I get all giddy when I see that she has new photos in her stream. She's edgy, talented, unique and just an all-around rockin' chick.

May 14, 2007

I love Photo Mama's work... she makes having 3 boys look like a wild party! There is so much energy and colour and love all the doco style stuff too! Brilliant photographer always check her stream!

Marina is the person I most want to be on flickr! She lives by the beach, has a rockin life, travels, is smokin hot, is an inspiring photographer and still manages to be a super mom too! Did I mention smokin hot? I wish she'd send me some of her mojo, and NOW!

Marina is one of my greatest inspirations. Her work is edgy and intimate and it speaks to me so strongly. I can't keep myself away from this photostream!

Keep on eye on this one folks, she is GOIN' places I swear! Always with a fresh and and often unexpected twist on typical family portraiture, I LOVE going through Photo Mama's stream. Cool, cool, COOL.

Marina's photos have such a cool feel to them. Looking at them gives this old school, laid back vibe...I always look forward to seeing what she has in store.

What a great example Photo Mama is that most really artistic photo is not chased after, it's right there in the middle of whatever you're doing at the moment. Can't help but enjoy the reality of her photos and we're glad she shares.
