She’s adventurous and fun, she’s a dreamer, she’s free-spirited and her inner confidence shines. She’s up for anything and trusts my creative vision for her. She’s ready to tell her story!

As the dreamer and adventurer you are, you deserve a genuine senior portrait experience like no other - one that goes above and beyond just getting that one shot for the yearbook.  You deserve to have stunning photos where your confidence shines!  It is all about creating unique and gorgeous portraits full of personality that make a statement and feel authentically YOU! 

Your senior year is a major milestone! This awesome experience is about capturing who you are now in natural, fun, creative, and timeless images that you can look back at in 20 years. These images will remind you of all the dreams and thirst for adventure you had!


Your unique senior portrait experience is an exciting process that requires preparation and planning of every detail to ensure you will not only feel and look gorgeous, but that you will absolutely LOVE the images we create!

We won't leave any detail behind - your styled wardrobe, your hair and makeup, the perfect lighting and the location we chose - we will plan out together to make the entire experience unforgettable. By the day of your session, you’ll know what to expect and you'll feel confident, upbeat and your best self! I'm truly excited to meet you!

The beautiful senior photos you took and created for my daughter Anna are stunning and true works of art. You were able to truly capture of the essence of who she is. We appreciated the thoughtful gift you sent to her before the photo shoot and all of the emails and reminders about appointments and the do's and don'ts regarding professional photography. Your suggestions were so useful and appropriate and made for timeless photos. I appreciate your thoughtfulness, care and experience.

My favorite part of the process was watching Maria bring David to life! The location Maria chose helped contribute to the great energy of the photos. David and I both loved the experience and I have to say that the way Maria presented David’s gift after the session is just spectacular.  I look forward to working with you again for Sarah’s senior portraits!

STEPHANIE R.

Maria is a true artist and passionate about her work and that resonates in everything she does. My son had fun at the photo shoot and that made me so happy to hear! She took the time to get to know my son through conversation and a questionnaire in order to include him in the process. I loved that she is fun and has a way with kids that makes them very comfortable and not the least bit intimidated.

KATHY S.

Maria photographed my daughter's Senior Portraits. Darah was a bit nervous during the planing stages and going into the session, but after Maria helped her with her hair, makeup, and selecting the best outfits, my daughter felt very at ease. The results were absolutely stunning!

DEBBIE S.

Maria was a pleasure to work with from the start. She is extremely professional and so accommodating to my son’s busy schedule. Ryan was so comfortable working with Maria! She has fabulous suggestions for the locations and the end results were incredible. We are so happy to have these photos to capture this special moment in our son’s life. Without hesitation, I highly recommend Maria’s talents.
