Personal brand photographer Durham Region

Hi there! Love that you’re here!

I’m Marta Raptis.

A portrait artist, visionary, story-teller, educator and website strategist.

On Photography…

My passion for photography was born out of love for visual storytelling. Photography allows me to express my creativity and… beautiful pictures make people happy, which I love!

I love the way my clients feel after a portrait session and how it boosts their confidence. It’s truly motivational.

I specialize in personal branding photography, lifestyle & family portraits. Natural light is my favourite to capture beautiful images.

I’m best known for my artistic and creative flair with a relaxed approach that allows my clients to feel at ease during portrait sessions. Every session is a fun and enjoyable experience.

On Websites…

I love to work with smart & inspiring women entrepreneurs to assist them in building an online presence that shines & connects with their ideal clients.

My work revolves around showing people a more joyful approach to creating an online brand. My goal is to always aim for more joy & less overwhelm.

You’ll often hear me talk about business strategy because above all, I live for the freedom to live on my own terms & finding success in doing what I love. I get a lot of satisfaction in supporting others to do the same.

I also hold deep love for travel, nature, yoga and slow + healthy living. My favourite adventures are the ones taken alongside my hubby, James. ❤

The Rising Tide Society

I’m the leader of the Durham Region TuesdaysTogether chapter as a part of the national organization, The Rising Tide Society. The group brings local creative entrepreneurs together to promote community over competition with the philosophy that “a rising tide lifts all boats.” I’m proud to be a part of a diverse community of creative professionals who push each other to achieve their dreams. If you’re a creative business owner in the Durham Region area, I’d love to have you join our Facebook group to find out about our next monthly meeting.


My favourite quote of all time:

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” 


Let’s work together!
