So nice to meet you


I'm Maria, and I've been capturing stories and creations for more than a decade! Thanks for being here.

I fall more in love with this craft and special job with every project. It moves me to create art with some of life's happiest times, and people's proudest creations. We are all creators. Whether that creation is the love you've cultivated with a partner or a new baby. Or the creation of a business you've built from scratch.  I get to help document the awesome stuff you've created! We celebrate and shine light on delightful pieces of life. 

Come as you are!

There are no expectations from you. I work alongside every client to cultivate imagery that feels special.

Each and every family, person, home, business, and special event is beautifully unique every single time - even if it's the 100th time we've worked together!

I craft natural feeling portraits & focus on wonderful and beautiful details. I want to give you thoughtful photos to celebrate your creations, special days, and beautiful life. 

I'm incredibly grateful, and truly love every project I've photographed.

If you're looking for a joyful, relaxed experience & outcome, thank you for considering me to serve you! 

Starting out living in the Western Suburbs for much of life, Maria has settled in Northwest Indiana along with her amazing husband, three wonderful & adored children, and Chester and Zak the cats, in a home they are proud of.
