What it's like to work with me

Maureen Edwards Photographer

As I move from event photography to a different type of customized service, I bring with me my love of photography, my work ethic and my mindset of service.

My joy and sense of purpose comes from transforming my clients' intentions into reality.

My clients include: The Graduate Institute, IBM, Palladium Partners, Americares, The Spirit at Work Foundation, The Conscious Capitalism Movement, Joe’s Spa, The Mayflower Inn and a myriad of personal clients…

Here are some of the many thank you notes I have received over the years:

Thank you so much. It touched my heart deeply when I first went through the album and then when Patt and I went through it again, I felt even more the heartfeltness of your insight through the lens of a camera. It is a reflection of your own beauty and depth."  David Kyle
