Words that my clients have used to describe what it's like to work with me: relaxed, easy, comfortable, helpful, calm, chill, generous, stress-free, and fun. For me, family and couples photography is just as much about the experience as it is about receiving the photos you're looking for.

Hello! Thanks for being here. I'm Maria, a family and couple photographer based in Seattle, WA, but willing to travel for a view. I'm an observer at heart, so waiting for all the real moments throughout my photo session time with you is my adrenaline fix.

ART IS anything YOU CAN


First generation born and raised in Southern California by a loud Latin family led by women. Living life in Seattle with my video game designer/musician husband (he's popular with the Dads) our gorgeous son, and one tiny cat. When we're not binging our favorite shows, we like to hang with our favorite people and dream about our next trip. Thrifting for vintage, records, snuggling with my family, and being outside planning my next adventure are what brings me life. 

Artist, former designer, cat owner, etc.

"Maria is amazing! We booked her for a newborn session and could not be happier. She made us feel at ease while photographing us in our home and really took her time with us. Her work is breathtakingly beautiful and the photos she captured of us are just gorgeous! We will cherish these images forever."
