Ohhh what an experience it was to have both our maternity shoot & our son's newborn pictures taken by this beauty! It was absolutely amazing the moments that were captured from the smiling to the guidance of what to do lol the patience that Malaika has was just amazing our pictures are perfect we couldn’t have chosen a better photographer she’s officially family & that’s exactly how we felt during both photoshoots family-oriented but she still remained professional & she’s so kind I love you girl & thank you so much for making this beautiful milestone perfect for us we forever love you our new photographer.
She was great and kept the photoshoot fun and professional! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Malaika.
I'm a photographer myself and can be very picky. Malaika definitely has "The eye"! I'm so glad she was referred to us... I laid out the play and she took the ball and ran with it! My type of team player! Highly recommend! I will be hiring her again for business marketing photos!
Malaika was energetic, personable, and fun to work with. She played music to set the tone for the shoot and helped me to feel comfortable in front of the camera. I'll definitely work with her again and I highly recommend her.

Malaika was great!! Her booking process was prompt and very professional. She was on time and set up very quickly. She’s a natural creative and gave me exactly what I envisioned for my event pictures. I will definitely book with her again!
-Teaira Owner, Tea Butters
I had the pleasure to work with Malaika for my business branding photo shoot. Malaika is prompt, professional and knowledgeable. Instead of simply taking photographs, Malaika takes the time to understand the purpose of the shoot and to tailor shots to meet your business goals. Her warm and friendly manner makes it easy to open up and get good shots. The product itself is impeccable and honestly, worth more than Malaika charges. I would recommend Malaika to anyone engaged in a personal branding project or who just seeks high quality images.

I have never been this excited to write a review for a business owner! Malaika and I clicked from the moment we met. I explained my goal for the photoshoot and she exceeded my expectations. Not only was she kind and easy to work with, she made the entire experience so memorable. I will never forget this photoshoot and the little moments we had. I highly recommend her for any type of photoshoot you may want/need!

My daughter and I are so grateful we discovered her! I will most definitely recommend her to everyone & use her for all future photography needs! God Bless you girl! Thanks for the experience!
Malaika was the photographer for my author photo for my book, she took my thoughts about what I wanted and turned them into something grand. Working with her was amazing and I’m grateful that I stumbled onto her, and that she had time to work with me. It’s been such a pleasure having her to help me capture images of both myself and my workshops into images that truly express what’s going on. I can't say enough great things about her!!

-Victoria Owner, The Tax Guru
I loveeeed this photographer! She was very professional and patient! Will go to again!
I hired Malaika for a creative photoshoot for my birthday. She far exceeded my expectations and excuted by vision perfectly. I found her to be incredibly talented and professional. I’ll cherish her photos for years to come.
First off this woman is awesome at her craft. She is supremely personable and she goes out her way to make you feel comfortable with her presence. She feels like a friend. When she's taking photos she like a fly on the wall you won't notice she's there going into the event until she approaches you. Our photos turned out beautiful and I honestly can't recommend her enough. Me (the bride) I'm not a very photogenic person unlike my groom who oozes photo readiness, so of course I was worried I wouldn't photograph well. When I say you wouldn't be able to tell she is just that amazing at what she does. She hyped us all up and brought out the best versions of ourselves. I'm forever thankful.
I loved every single second of working with Malaika! She brings great energy and makes you feel seen and heard. I loved the process of pre-selection my vision before committing to a location. This level of thoughtfulness made me feel super comfortable in front of the camera.
Amazing Job on the senior photos. Thank you so much
-Kirk (Senior Portraits)
Very professional, knowledgeable, overall very good experience. I love the vibe and the bond we built just in the hour of shooting.
-Ramon Model & Personal Trainer
Malaika is such a pro. I *do not like* having my picture taken, but I'm also conscious of and proud of my business and my brand. She made our shoot so fun, so stress-free, and I absolutely love the results. She never made me feel weird or awkward for being picky about the details. Every single small business owner deserves to feel the way Malaika made me feel throughout the whole process.
-Sam OBM On Demand
Had the utmost privilege to work with gifted photographer Malaika. Her keen eye for details, breathtaking skill in creating captivating images, understanding the simplicity of stunning composition/s, and dedication to her craft are evident in her personality, creativity, and professionalism. There is no doubt that her talent will continue to take her to the heights of the most elite photographers of the next generation. I guess it's true what they say, "Mediocrity knows nothing higher than itself, but talent instantly recognizes genius."
-Rozeta Runway/Modeling Coach
Malaika was an incredible partner in helping us celebrate our small wedding ceremony. She creatively captured the excitement and emotion of the day and made us feel very comfortable, even with social distancing guidelines in place. We enjoyed working with her and hope to partner with her again for future family events and special occasions.
-Kelly + Marques King
Malaika was wonderful! Very personable and fun to be around. She made the shoot very fun and super relaxed. I loved her energy throughout! I would definitely be working with her again on future shoots!
Malaika took our son's senior pictures. This is our firstborn, we are so excited about this time in his life. Malaika brought the same energy as us. She was very professional. She knew great spots to take photos, and his photos turned out excellent. We were very impressed, and will definitely be using her services in the future. She has a very sweet and helpful and
easy-going personality. She made his photoshoot go very smoothly. She also made our son as well us
(his parents) feel very comfortable.
Malaika never ceases to amaze me, at our first shoot I was impressed by her ability to make me feel immediately comfortable. Her photography is extremely striking and she manages to capture the true essence of the individual. Her use of color and composition are impeccable and truly enhance the story she tells through her photos.

-Sicarra Wardrobe Stylist
Malaika is always a pleasure to work with. She literally makes you feel so comfortable and beautiful as a client. But what I love most about working with Malaika is her passion and investment in the shoots she does. I presented her with a concept a little over a month before my shoot. She literally took the time to practice and research different techniques that fit the vibe. She even went out and found the right photography equipment. Like what other photographers do you know does that for their clients? She literally elevated the shoot to a level I couldn't have even imagined. I cannot wait for a chance to work with her again. Bottomline: Book Malaika
-Rebekah Model & Creative Director
My experience with Malaika was nothing short of amazing. She is passionate about the work she does which creates such an authentic atmosphere and an environment everyone feels comfortable in. She was easy to collaborate with and gave great useful feedback when it was needed. As soon as our shoot was over I found myself looking forward to our next time together. Thank you, Malaika for an unforgettable experience. Anyone looking for a genuine and easy person to work with, she’s your gal!
I would absolutely recommend Malaika to anyone! She made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera, and took time to learn about my business and its mission in order to capture the greatest moments. Malaika traveled with me to another location to shoot. I love my photos and have been receiving the best feedback on them as I post them!

Malaika is AMAZING. I had been eyeing her work for so long on Instagram, so I was thrilled when I finally got the chance to work with her. We clicked instantly – I felt like I had known her for years! Our shoot went by so quickly and I was seriously sad when it was over. The photos came out beautifully, and I can't wait until we can go outside again so I can schedule another shoot with her! If you're looking for someone to take your pics, consider Malaika. She's talented, works quickly gives good direction, and knows her stuff.
