I'm about embracing

beauty in the NOISE.


As a photographer in Northwest Indiana, I specialize in Family and Newborn portraits, plus Weddings and Events. Serving NW Indiana + Chicago areas. 

Your personal work of art comes to light through my lens! The folks I document are looking to celebrate milestones, family, and life and would greatly enjoy thoughtful artwork to commemorate it. We have an awesome and easy time doing just that here!

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on camera is captured forever…it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”

what clients have said

sweet notes from clients

“ Maria was a pro dealing with all our different personalities, from the baby, to an unenthusiastic teenager, to adults who do not like having their picture taken. These are my favorite photographs ever taken of my favorite people! I will forever cherish these! I cannot say enough about how kind, sweet, and talented she is. Also, very responsive, dependable, and professional through the entire process.”
