I love Jesus, sunsets and Starbucks! I am blessed to be a Wife to an amazing man and Mother to 2 wonderful little girls (Lucy and Lainey). I'm a childhood cancer survivor which led me to my first career as a Pediatric Nurse. Last year I diagnosed with breast cancer. This year I underwent a double mastectomy with reconstructive surgery. I am happy to have recovered and am back to doing what I am passionate about. I love empowering women and young girls, which is why I love taking photos of seniors, dance and maternity. Making people feel beautiful is something I aim to do!  I want to capture your memories.

 God has truly blessed me and my business by bringing me into contact with the right people. I feel so happy in life when I get to meet new Mom's and families to help document their journey! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for trusting me with your memories!

My name is Maria. I am a Photographer in Cincinnati, Ohio. I love photographing Seniors, Maternity and Dance Photography.

quick facts about me



You will often find me on the side of the road stopping to take a photo of the most beautiful sunset! I am a chaser of light.  I love flowers and all the details that the world has to bring! I love the innocence of the child twirling in a pretty dress and the sound of the birds chirping in the morning! Here is a photo of my girls I took this spring!

my favorite

I have been happily married to Mike for 10 years. We actually eloped in married Las Vegas with just a few of our friends.  We live just north of Cincinnati in a quiet neighborhood. We have two girls, Lucy who is 9 and Lainey who is 8. Yes, they are only 14 months apart and we get asked if they are twins almost every time we are out! They attend Mother Teresa and we are so happy with the community there! We also have three dogs, a 5 year old yellow lab, named Crosley, a 1yr old black lab named Rosie, and our newest addition, Roxy, a 1yr old German Shepherd. We attend Crossroads Church in Mason, Oh and I am very involved with the ministries there! My husband and I are both physically active,  love the gym and working out and have been following a ketogenic lifestyle for over a year now. My daughter Lucy, loves gymnastics and is on the comp team at Perfection here in West Chester. Lainey plays volleyball at school and does recreational gymnastics!  If there is anything else you want to know, just ask!  Thanks for visiting my page!
