Maria, a native of Ecuador is a highly sough-after Highschool senior photographer based in Baltimore, MD. After a decade in Costa Rica as an Agricultural Engineer, she took the leap to follow her true passion of photography. This path brought her and her family to the U.S. to formally study photography and earn a degree in 2008.Maria spent years honing her craft, allowing her style to blossom, always drawing inspiration from the natural world and finding what feeds her soul: high school senior portraits. In this genre, she found a profound connection with her subjects, fulfilled by the immense potential to positively impact these young minds and fostering self-esteem and confidence in them while capturing their essence and making them feel like rock stars in the process.A lifelong student, Maria is enjoying her new calling of mentoring and supporting fellow artists on their creative journeys and teaching photographers her business pillars of personalization and human connection through published articles, speaking engagements, and one-on-one mentoring.
