My Story

Before I found photography I always thought I would be a teacher or a writer. My family was full of creative types - painters, writers, teachers, free thinkers. For what felt like the longest time I searched for my place in the world of artistic expression. I moved out at 15, traveled across the country with my Pentax film camera and began my quest to find my own path. I pursued my love for photography in college and graduated summa cum laude with a BFA in Photography.

Then real life, for me, began.

My son Cameron was born (he's 10 now).

The next chapter in my life began and life as I knew would never be the same. It was scary and real and beautiful but it made complete sense. In that moment it clicked; this is who I am, this is where I am supposed to be. I'm that person who loves reading on airplanes, loves the mountains and the ocean, loves making memories with my children, meeting new people from all walks of life, loves every waking (and sleeping) moment that I get to spend with my (old and new, I need it), road trips, finding the silver lining in worst of times and taking pictures (which is kind of like breathing for me). Thank you so much for looking around, I look forward to hearing your story. xo Maria
