Hi, I’m Maria!

Wife of one, mother of three, passionate photographer and full time juggler!

With three kids of my own, I totally get it – you want beautiful photos of your family or your brand new baby, but the mere thought of trying to round up the troops for a photo session brings you out in a cold sweat. And besides, you’re just so busy, so you continue to put it on the long finger. But you’re conscious of how quickly they’re growing and changing before your very eyes! Sadly, you can’t slow down the sands of time, but you can preserve forever those precious and fleeting moments, and without the stress! I specialise in providing a relaxed and enjoyable photography experience so you can have those beautiful, yet creative and meaningful images of your family, full of real connection and authenticity, which you will cherish forever. I know that your most treasured photographs are those from real moments captured in real settings. That’s why I use natural light and take a lifestyle approach to my photography.

If you are based in Dublin or surrounding area and this sounds like your thing, then I’d love to hear from you!

“Maria was absolutely amazing! I have 3 little boys that were extremely grumpy and I never manage to get pictures where everybody looks good, yet she did it!! I’m so happy we did the photo shoot as we will cherish the pictures forever. Will definitely get her to take future pictures too!”

Why Book a Session?..

You have a great smart phone with a great camera and thousands of digital images at your fingertips. You capture precious memories of your children every day with ease. It’s convenient, right? But how many of those photos will ever see the light of day? Will they stand the test of time or get lost in the digital ether? Are YOU even IN any of those photos with your family? Let me help you to create photographs that are truly special, timeless and unique to your family, that you can proudly display on your wall. I bring skill, creativity and lots of patience to every photo session, along with years of practice, so you can relax and enjoy the experience!

More About Me

The scariest thing I’ve ever done is give birth. It’s also the best thing I’ve ever done! Three times and I never take it for granted. I’m a realist with a strong romantic streak. Relaxation bliss is curled up with the hubby, a good movie and a bottle of wine (I’d also take a spa treatment if it was going). And I simply can’t be without my skinny jeans. Comfy, versatile and timeless!

As for credentials, I studied both traditional film and digital photography with a Degree in Communication Studies at DCU, but it’s a passion that goes way back to my childhood, when I was first introduced my dad’s old film SLR.

In 2017, after slowly building my photography business on the side for several years, I finally found the courage to follow my dreams and left my corporate career behind to become a full-time professional photographer. I did all of this while starting a family, working more late nights than I care to remember and snatching hours wherever I could get them (usually during babies’ nap times). Coffee was a staple! Still is…

Making the leap to entrepreneurship while balancing family life has been the most challenging and rewarding thing I’ve ever done. I truly love my job and would love to share it with you!

If you would like to book a photo session, or schedule a no-obligation phone consultation to have all your questions answered, please contact me. I would love to hear from you!
