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 brand new baby or young family, but the mere thought of a photo session is stressful and difficult. And besides, you’re just so busy all the time, 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! Don’t you wish you could sometimes just slow down the hands of time? Alas, we can’t. But there is a way to 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 and meaningful images of your children, which you will cherish forever.

Preserving magical, yet fleeting moments

My passion is more than just “photography”… it is a passion for capturing magical memories and preserving forever some of the most special, yet fleeting moments and milestones in your lives.  Photography is simply the artistic medium that enables me to do that – and to create precious and timeless images of you and your family, which you can cherish forever.  I know that your most treasured and beautiful portraits and images are those arising from real moments captured in their natural settings. This is why I love using natural light and taking a lifestyle approach to my photography. If this is what you’re about too, then I’m confident we’ll work well together!  Read more here.

Why book a photo session?..

In today’s digital world, with a thousand images on our smart phones, it seems all too easy to turn to this as a convenient way to “capture” memories. But to create images that are truly special, timeless and unique, that you can proudly display on your wall – that takes patience, precision and passion. These just happen to be three qualities that I bring with me to every photo session!

A little more about me…

There is never a dull moment in our household with three under 5! Whenever I do manage to get a little downtime, what I enjoy more than anything is hanging out together as a family, ideally heading outdoors with my budding little explorers – always accompanied by my camera.  As a natural night owl, I do my best work at night (with a quiet house!). That’s not without the morning struggle of course, but a strong mug of coffee normally does the trick.

Following my father’s footsteps, I have had a passion for photography ever since he introduced me to his old film SLR camera as a little girl.

I graduated with a degree in Communication Studies in 2003, where I studied photography, both traditional film-based and digital format. However, it remained an art that I pursued only as a hobby until 2017, when I finally found the courage to follow my dreams and turned my long time passion into a business.

I truly love my job and would love to share it with you!
