Personal notes from Session Clients:
My daughter, Madison and I met with Xiomara on a fall day in Tillamook. Xiomara and Madison got acquainted and discussed Madison’s vision for her senior portraits. Madison wanted something different, something she had not seen done before, a city session. Xiomara was delighted and the two of them shared their ideas. We met Xiomara in Portland on a November day. Xiomara had scoped out several locations where she knew it would fit Madison’s personality. She was spot on with her selections. Every scene was Madison, my inspiring artist! We had a blast during her session. I felt as though Xiomara really cared and took the time to get to know my daughter and her vision. I love every photo that Xiomara shot of Madison. Selection was the hardest part of the entire process! I highly recommend Imago Dei Photography to capture you Senior Session! Her work is phenomenal, her professionalism is bar none, and Xiomara Gard is a pure delight to work with. ~Lisa
Xiomara brought my camera shy teen out of her shell to produce a wide range of beautiful images from traditional poses to free spirit. I absolutely love how she captured the many faces of my daughter’s personality. Xiomara is about the whole experience. From sorting through outfits with my daughter to dealing with the lab on processing matters, Xiomara insured that we were pleased with the entire process from beginning to end.

Xiomara at Imago Dei Photography captured the spirit of every moment expertly. Each photo is an absolute masterpiece, I find myself reviewing the photos over and over. We are amazed at how carefree and effortless each photo is, which is not easy to do having three small children enjoying a beach atmosphere. We are beyond thrilled with her professionalism, her enthusiasm and true artistry. She is a dream to work with and I look forward to our next session. ~Reed and Nora
I am very impressed with my senior pictures by Imago Dei Photography. Although I didn’t have ideas for my pictures, Xiomara helped pick a location and suggested creative and unique ideas for my pictures. The session was so enjoyable and I felt comfortable instead of shy. I had fun taking my senior pictures, and was incredibly excited to see them- I was not disappointed! I think that my personality and interests really showed in my senior pictures, and that makes them images I will treasure for a long time. Xiomara was wonderful through my consultation and shoot and she even brought us a surprise when she revealed the photos to us. I had a really great experience taking my senior pictures, and I am very happy with the end result! ~Sam
Xiomara has been capturing portraits for our family for over the past four years. She consistently provides us with images that perfectly capture our family and our kid’s personalities. The kids love being around her which makes picture time so much less stressful. Our previous session, we couldn’t have asked for it to go any better. Everything was planned out ahead of time, so when we got to our session Xiomara knew exactly what kind of pictures we were looking for and she was able to just start shooting. I recommend her to anyone I know looking for beautiful family portraits. ~Jenn
