I have loved photography since I was 8 years old! had my first Pentax SLR then, given to me by my daddy. It's proudly on display in my studio. I specialize in family and children's photography because I love kiddos, but I have a soft spot for high school seniors too.

I studied a Diploma in Photography in 2004 in Ireland and have gone on to study the art extensively.

he photography industry is constantly changing, I never stop learning and evolving, attempting to keep up with the growing trends. I have taken the following workshops/courses to help with my constant artistic growth. (Weight Watchers help me with my other growth!)

More about Maria S....

What do you love about your job?

I love making people feel really good about themselves and their families. Parents reactions when they see their images is so priceless. When a mom shows emotion looking at the image you captured of her newborn, there are no words to describe that feeling. I love being super goofy with kids and astonishing parents with the results I get.

What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?

I have done just about every type of shoot imaginable. It's always special because I give 100 percent of me, I only focus on the client and what they want. I love to make people feel comfortable and just learn to relax and laugh and have fun with it all.

Awards, honors, and recognitions received

I have won Best of Clark County in 2016
Best Newborn Photographer in Vancouver WA
I've been published in Boundary Stone Baby, 2life, I heartfaces and received photo of the day many times with Capture Southwest Washington.

A fun fact about this photographer

I've never been beaten at Mortal Kombat@! I'm originally from Ireland and moved here to the USA in 2010, sometimes I have to force myself to speak slowly so my clients can understand me, which is hard when I get super duper excited@!!
