Hello! I'm Maria. I fell in love with photography ages ago. Back then, my focus was on nature because I didn't have the confidence to photograph people. With some self work, that changed into a passion for portraiture, especially of women. One of my mottos is that you should be photographed the way you want to be seen. Most of us want to be seen a certain way without the trappings of what the world expects. Besides the immense pleasure and reward of photographing women, I frequently provide photography services to nonprofit organizations that support women's leadership, financial education, and health; and organizations that provide international medical aid. I also specialize in headshots and family portraiture. I have been a nurse for 27 years and a Nurse Practitioner for twenty years. I recently acquired a photography studio. This has caused my creativity to overflow. Photography brings me immense joy and with continued effort, I plan to transition to a full-time portrait photographer.
