My name is Marianela, but everyone knows me as Nelly. I am a female Little Rock, AR based photographer. I am originally from Brownsville, TX and currently located in Cabot, Arkansas. I have one very funny husband who has served in the U.S. Air Force for over 22 years and three goofy, unique and very smart kids. As crazy as life is, I completely understand how time can slip from our fingers so quickly. Before you know it, babies are no longer babies, and life as we know is completely changed. Photographs bridge the past and the present by freezing time, but they also remind one of time’s inescapability, that we are all on its path.
I love chocolate and could snack on appetizers all day long. The Notebook and 28 Days Later are some of my favorite movies. I know, complete ends of the spectrum. But, that’s me – I love romance and I love horror, and everything in between. Anyone who knows me will tell you I am a huge cheeseball, but I put all of my heart into creating stunning, artistic images that portray you, beautifully. Photographing people is truly my passion. As a female business owner and woman of color, I strive to go above and beyond my clients' needs.
I want to be the one to document your life - the big moments and the small ones, too. I'll capture every celebration, from birthdays, graduations, to your first business headshot. Life is precious, and it goes by so quickly. Let me help you remember it all.
