Sonia has become like family over the past 4 years! She has such an amazing eye and she's so wonderful with our daughters. She had shot both of our maternity sessions, newborn sessions, and all of the family shots between. She is professional, kind, fun, and loves a challenge. We don't plan on going anywhere else!

Sonia is an amazing photographer that capture a very intimate moment for our family and captured it wonderfully. Our time here in Central Valley will be short but we will be using her for every family session we have here. I 100% recommend her for any of your photography needs.

Sonia has a true passion for photography. She takes so much pride in her work. She works very hard to have her clients feel at ease and comfortable while capturing their moments forever. She works her hardest to ensure her clients get exactly what they were wanting. Her studio space is warm and inviting, a wonderful expansion in her business. Her eye for great lighting and small details sets her work apart from the rest. If you’ve ever seen her in action, you know she gives it her all - every time.

Working with Sonia was a DREAM! She was so awesome to work with starting with the first visit & booking. She walks you through all of the steps and really makes sure you are getting the best service! The whole process was so great. I just picked up my prints today and she had everything wrapped beautifully and set up for my reveal. Photos are an investment, and I recommend anyone to make the investment with Sonia. Her patience with a newborn was something I’ve never seen before. She is truly talented!

If I could give Sonia more than 5 stars, I would! She did an amazing job capturing our Navy "homecoming". The quality of her pictures are incredible and her focus on detail is impeccable! I highly recommend her.

Sonia is absolutely one of the most talented artists you will ever work with. Between her technical skills and wonderful personality you are getting the total package. She took the time to get to know our family prior to our newborn and subsequent sessions. Once she gets where you are coming from she tailors the experience so that the end product you receive not only blows your expectations away, it tells a story about you. It is also worth mentioning that her warm spirit and kind nature immediately bonded our daughter to her. Our daughter is not the kid to run up to strangers with open arms to give them hugs, but with Sonia it’s a totally different story and there is a trust in their relationship that just can’t be forced. This has made all of our photo shoots easier, more fun, and higher quality as a result.

I reached out to Sonia about 5 months ago looking for a newborn photographer since our previous one left the area. From our first meeting I knew she was the one I wanted to do the job. Sonia captured such beautiful maternity pictures of me and my family that I couldn’t wait to see what she would invision for the newborn session. She exceeded all expectations when it came to the newborn session that I hired her immediately to photograph my daughters 2nd birthday milestone. Sonia is patient, kind, relatable, affordable and has become a good friend. She listens to my wants and suggestions and doesn’t just deliver the bare minimum. She goes above and beyond anything I could imagine. Her creativity shines through every image and I cannot wait to hire her again to photograph our family’s future special moments.

Not a client, but I have worked with Sonia as her second photographer several times. She is very professional and produces top notch photos. The clients that I have worked with along side her all have loved her work. Would recommend and work along side her any time.

I first contacted Sonia when another photographer stop responding after scheduling newborn photos. I was in a complete panic, wanting my sons newborn photos done within less than a weeks notice. Sonia was so sweet & compassionate! She was able to book me before my son turned 2 weeks old with little notice. I have used her for all of our family photos since then, & have always been blown away at her amazing work! Not only do all of our photos look phenomenal, but working with her during the shoot is so comfortable! She has a great personality & doesn't make you feel like your being rushed through a shoot. For the quality of work received, her prices are more than fair. I personally think her work is worth way more than her current prices, but I'm thankful she keeps her pricing fair so that I can keep going back to her! I highly recommend everyone to Memory Avenue Photography, for all types of photos!

We had the pleasure of meeting Sonia this year after our last family photographer moved out of the area. Sonia has such great attention to detail and an eye for photography. We had our Fall family photo session with her, as well as the Santa experience photo session. The set was great, and she is so friendly and amazing with our kids. We will come to Sonia for all of our photography needs for years to come. Thank you Sonia for such great experiences, and lasting memories of our children and family!

Working with Sonia for my April 2018 wedding was such an awesome experience. I had never taken professional photos before so I was a little nervous, but she dissolved every bit of nerves about the photos and laughed and joked with us ALL DAY. It was great to work with someone who truly knows how special and important wedding photography is. I will continue to use Sonia to photograph every life event in the future for my family.

Sonia did an amazing job with my maternity and newborn pictures! She was willing to create custom packages to fit my budget, which I really appreciate. She is extremely friendly and understanding, and got our pictures back to us in a very timely manner. I plan on using her for years to come for my family pictures.

We booked Memory Avenue for our June wedding. The prices were VERY reasonable especially considering all of the options offered. Sonia was amazing to work with! She took time to get to know our entire family to make sure we had the best experience possible. Unfortunately, circumstances were such that we were unable to use Sonia for our wedding. We were so bummed!! But Sonia was even amazing during the cancellation process. I don't know of ANY vendor that is accommodating and courteous even after cancelling. I would definitely recommend Memory Avenue Photography to anyone looking for a quality photographer to capture their special moment/event!! We will most certainly use Sonia for our future photo needs!

Sonia is incredibly talented and the most patient photographer I’ve ever met! She made me feel comfortable from the minute I met her at our first consultation! I shared my ideas and she brought them to life so effortlessly! The day of our shoot, big sister was not cooperating but she kept things light and positive until we got a good shot! She took her time and treated us like old friends. Our baby boy’s newborn pictures turned out so much better than I could have ever imagined and I’m so grateful for the moments she captured for our family!

I cannot say enough about our AMAZING experience with Sonia! She captured the birth of our son, newborn photos, and family photos and she never ceases to amaze me with her work. The newborn training and the countless time that she puts into her work shows tremendously in all aspects. Sonia was calm and full of encouragement during my labor as we waited for my husband to get to the hospital from training in Nevada. She was a support for my mom during my emergency cesarean. She worked her magic on my newborn baby that wanted to be awake for most of the newborn session making it difficult to capture those poses. She has gone over and beyond to work with our military family schedule through her busy seasons..... I could seriously go on and on about our lovely experiences with Memory Avenue Photography! I have been tearing up thinking about everything that Sonia has done for us as we have worked with her. We love her and will have her capture our family until the Navy moves us from Lemoore! If you have read this far, this is where you go and BOOK HER! You will not be disappointed. Love, Anna, Andrew, and John-Douglas

Sonia is absolutely fabulous. Her work and attention to detail is phenomenal. She first took photos for my family that included 27 people! 5 different families at once, the majority of them being kids under the age 6. The pictures are outstanding! Now she is taking pictures of my first born. And I can't stop looking at them. Sonia makes each session fun for everyone. And keeps everyone so involved while she is taking pictures. I can't wait to see how amazing the first year photos of my daughter turn out. The first 4 months are already so stunning.

Sonia is amazing. She has been photographing my family since 2009. She took our first family fall photos and has always been my go to person. She loves what she does and you see that in every photo she captures. She works wonderful with children of all ages. I personally love the pictures she captures when we least expect it. I would recommend her in a heart beat.

Sonia did our daughters Fresh 48 and newborn photos and they turned out beautifully! They are photos we will treasure for the rest of our lives. Sonia was so patient and kind in with us in the hospital for the Fresh 48 Photos. I loved the props she had for the newborn photos and had snacks during the session and was incredibly kind to us and gentle with our daughter during the session. We couldn’t love the photos more and look forward to more family photo sessions with Sonia in the future!
