Welcome to Marie Maes

I'm Sonya and I design family cook books and custom photo albums to preserve family memories and traditions.

For me it was both grandmothers and my mom who instilled in me a love for the kitchen. Memories of these wonderful women are sparked with a smell wafting from the oven or the sticky dough under ones nails. From homemade cinnamon rolls to traditional German dishes, with each bite, I can remember something different and lovely about each of them.

In order to keep these memories close, and pass them down to future generations, I began creating family heirloom cook books. From old favorites to new cuisines, I crafted a book full of family favorites adorned with worn photos.

Whether you have a handful of recipes and photos, or are looking to put together a memory book of a special event, I look forward to helping you preserve your family memories and heirlooms.
