 My name is Cindy Arias and I am a Seattle-based freelance photographer. I started my journey almost four years ago in November 2018. My friend Christina took a chance on me and let me take her senior portraits. From there, I grew my love for photography.
My friends and family began to ask me to take their photos, and from them, I gained my experience. This has made me focus on portraits, but I do a bit of everything from maternity shoots, parties, even car shoots! I love to try new things and get out of my comfort zone. Even though I have done over 100 sessions, I am continuing to grow and learn more with each session! 
When I am not a photographer, I am usually busy working as an educator for a nonprofit organization or sleeping.
Capturing customer's special moments has been the best part of this job.  I grew up south of Seattle being the youngest of a family of seven. I have only a few childhood pictures and two family portraits. Taking photos of my special moments was never an option for my family because we could never afford it.  I don’t want this to happen to others. I want to be affordable and accessible to all to capture their moments. I can't wait to capture more moments.
Hope to work with you in the future!
