My approach

How I do things!

I admire real love stories + making individuals feel beautiful + empowered.  I'm all about capturing the real moments and emotions that you have. I want to see your realest smile + I want to hear you laugh from deep inside your soul.  My goal is to create a complete experience for you.  You will laugh, dance + feel free and in the moment.

I'm not the photographer who is just going to have you stand still + take your photo.

I am going to be constantly interacting with you + together we are going to create some magical moments! I can promise you that you will frolic, act a little silly + jam out to your favorite tunes. I will pour nothing but good vibes out + I promise to capture all your authenticity during our time together. 

I'm not your average photographer + together we will capture exactly who you are during this chapter of your life in these photos.

Now a bit about me

I'm Maria, a 26 year old born + raised South Texan.  I'm a lover of all dogs, great food (especially burgers + fries),  + almost all things fitness related,  except cardio...don't put me down for cardio! I can quote tons of movies, and casually work them into every conversation.  I have an obnoxiously loud true laugh, if you can get it out of me beware, once I start I won't stop! 

When I'm not out shooting, I'm either doing Crossfit, hanging out with friends, or hopefully out on an adventure somewhere. I have a urge to see the world one country at a time, and I'm slowly but surely making that happen.

I am based in Beaumont, Texas for now.....but I'm definitely open to traveling!

(P.S. I'm often in the Houston/San Antonio/Corpus Christi area!)
