Maria originally hails from Maryland, about 30 minutes away from Washington DC, and has lived there the vast majority of her life. She has had a heart for the creative arts since she was young, and had the opportunity to venture into photography almost ten years ago. It was love at first shot and she hasn’t put the camera down since. Over the past decade, she has shot numerous portrait sessions, lots of travel photography (which happens when you catch the travel bug), and even has a couple of weddings underneath her belt. What she loves about photography, but portrait photography in particular, is simply capturing the essence of a person at a moment in time. She also just really loves a crisp and clean photo.
Maria also loves the outdoors, crafting, sewing, dancing, etc… and adventure. Luckily, she now resides in Vancouver, BC with her husband, where she can do all of the above.
