A Beautiful Soul's Passing - Honoring our client, Maria

Maria's family reached out to us after her passing just a few days ago, and asked if we could post some of her pictures as a remembrance. We were blessed to have her in our studio for three different photo shoots over several years. She definitely grew to be one of our most loved clients, and we are honored that we can celebrate her inner and outer beauty.


Here's a little bit about Maria:


She was diagnosed with leukemia 8 years ago at the end of March. She lived for her two kids who were her everything, and fought hard and long to be with them. She was mentally and physically strong and dealt with her daily pain without letting anyone know. If you went to visit her, you would just end up laughing until you cried - having the best time - completely forgetting that you went there to cheer HER up! She would always turn it around and cheer YOU up instead! She was just a bright ray of light.


Read Maria's original blog post posted March 5, 2021.



From Maria's obituary:

Maria Morales of Osceola, WI passed away peacefully with family by her side, on March 6th, 2022 at the age of 32.


Maria was born in Stillwater, MN in 1989, to Dan and Jackie Morales. She grew up in Centuria, WI with her 3 brothers and 2 sisters. She attended Unity school, kindergarten through twelfth grade, in Balsam Lake, WI. From a very young age Maria loved to dance and took lessons for 6 years. Maria's beautiful smile and outgoing personality lit up any room she walked into. She was a wonderful mother who loved her children more than anything in the world. One of her favorite things to do was to take them on vacation to Florida and spend all day at the beach. Her dogs or "babies" as she called them, were the second loves of her life. She also loved llamas, tulips, and buffalos. Maria loved NFL football and was an avid Panthers fan. Her favorite thing to watch on TV was WWE wrestling. Her favorite wrestlers were: Eddie Guerrero, Roman Reigns, and The Rock. Maria's absolute favorite food was tacos, especially the ones made by her Grandpa Joseph. Maria was truly one of a kind and will forever be missed by all her family and friends. Now I will end this with her and her children's favorite saying to each other,


"Love you, miss you, proud of you, finity."


Our hearts are broken - the world has lost an incredible life. Sending healing prayers and comforting hugs to Maria's family and friends.


Praying that all of you know the love of Jesus and the eternal life He promises!


xoxo, the Sugar & Spice Girls
