Hello, I’m Maria!
A wanderlust with an awesome husband and two curious kids in tow. You could call me a “third culture adult” and we’re raising our children to embrace every culture and country they live in. Incredibly grateful to call Italy home for the next few years.
If I’m not shooting commercial work or editing pretty pictures, you can find me or exploring the world with my family, experimenting in the kitchen, or quilting.
Why Commercial Photography?
I’d be lying if I said being a commercial photographer wasn’t THE BEST JOB IN THE WORLD. Shooting images of food and products for publication is so much fun and incredibly fulfilling.
I love the initial brainstorming process and creating beautiful images for print. It’s surreal and amazing. I can’t get enough.
Why Editing & Retouching?
Like many editors, my background is in photography. I learned on film and knew how to use Photoshop long before I ever picked up a DSLR. When I left my full time job to stay at home with my first born, I needed a creative outlet.
Turning a vision into reality excites me and I love what I do! I love turning a great image into an amazing one that prints beautifully.
