Hi, my name is Maria

What started as a hobby over 10 years ago grew into something beautiful and meaningful. I was on the crossroads in college, really did not know what I wanted to do for my career. The summer I borrowed a starter DSLR from my father changed everything. I discovered a passion for photography, and it was the best thing that could happen. Really, how many of us are lucky to be passionate about our jobs? 
At first, it was fun - creating pretty photographs, curiosity about techniques, and learning about lighting both outdoor and the studio. 
But the main reason is working with people. Catching the fleeting moments, real smiles, happiness on camera, and delivering those images to my clients brings me so much joy. 
It all became especially true after I got married and gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. Even though the family was always important, only after I had a daughter, I truly realized the "why" of photography. Each session is equally important, be it a newborn, maternity, first milestones or family. The list can go on and on. Of course, you've got your memories, but being able to SEE those moments, again and again, is priceless. 
This is why my photography style is vibrant but natural. Your gallery will have genuine, happy, and timeless photographs that will be loved and cherished for generations to come.
