Hello! Thank you for stopping by! I am Maria, the woman behind the clunky camera. I am 27-ish years old, I have two beautiful children ages 4 and 2 (yes I know, what a handful!) My husband is in the United States Air Force, therefore we/he move a lot. Previously, we were stationed in Okinawa, Japan for 3 years. Lived in a TX for 2.5 and recently found my way back to Kansas City, MO! I currently reside in South Kansas City in the city of Peculiar.
My drive for portrait photography derives from my children. Seeing my son become a big brother and interact with his sister was just breathtaking. I needed to have all the moments captured! When my son was little I did monthly photos of him but now that I had TWO…. I need all the pictures I can get! Being a photographer and having two children, a boy and a girl, has pushed me to be creative and come up with new ‘themes’ for each. Let me tell you, girls are easy!
I would love to chat and meet with you and talk about what your portrait needs are. My specialty is definitely studio work but I love outside work as well! Whatever you need, we can make your visions come true.
