maricar lianne photography | About

I am an island girl that grew up in Guam. I am a daughter of bright stars, both involved in the technology field. I am the oldest of three girls.  My father was the family photographer and videographer. He captured my family's priceless moments on film. Still to this day, I still love looking back at them and remembering the laughter, tears and memories.

I found the love of my life in college and we moved to Oregon to start a little family of our own. Through the modern miracle of in-vitro fertilization, we conceived our first child. Sadly, we lost him, Johnathan Francis, at 18 weeks gestation.  I donate my time and talent to the Heart Gallery of Oregon and Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep in memory of Johnathan. Never wanting to call it quits, we tried again and finally gained the greatest blessings in our lives, two daughters. Malia Janelle and Jenna Lauren.

I lost my young mother after a two year battle with gastric cancer while pregnant with my youngest, Jenna.  I support hospice care and I donate my  time and talent to the American Child Photographers Charity Guild and other hospice programs in memory of my mom, Lulu.

My husband Jerry is in the Air Force reserves and has been deployed a couple times after 9/11.  Please let me know if you have a member of the family currently in the armed forces.

I've decided to follow the steps of my father and with the urging of my late mother, I found my calling in photography. I love taking photographs. I love to capture life in it's true form.

Make it fun, make it fresh, make it beautiful. Let's make memories.
