I’m Maria, a lifestyle family + newborn photographer based in South Florida. I've always had a strong passion for photography and I truly believe it’s a gift the Lord has given me. When I look through my lens, I am filled with pure happiness because I get to see LIFE, I see LOVE, and I see you The best part is... I get to capture all of those precious and fleeting moments and create memories for your family. My hope is that the same JOY I feel transcends to you and your family before, during, and after your session. You may not know it, but today you have found more than a photographer you have found a friend who is excited to meet you.
I'm Maria! WIFE, MAMA, PHOTOGRAPHER, and FRIEND!
I am so grateful you are here.
I am Maria, a woman of faith, a wife, and a mama. I am a light chaser and lover of sunrises and sunsets with a love for home decor ( Keep me away from Home Goods or a Hobby Lobby!). A perfect day for me would be one where I am on the beach with my family worshipping the Lord as I watch the sunrise or sunset. Whether I have a cafecito, a cold brew or a Boba Tea in my hand depends on the day...why choose?!
My passion for photography started at a very young age, but my WHY has changed throughout the years. I was born in Bolivia and raised in Miami. It was through photography that our family shared our everyday moments with each other. We didn't have FACETIME or Whatsapp and I can honestly say while I love that we do now, I am happy we didn't then, because it taught me the value behind a photograph. The art and love behind an image is priceless.
Fast forward to today, I have a new reason for my WHY. Motherhood was a strong desire I had in my heart. I have had quite the journey and can relate with so many mamas. I gave birth to my first born Leo in 2021. I was blessed to have 2 amazing months in the NICU with my son before he went to heaven. Throughout this experience, my faith in God grew, I learned to trust His plans, I learned to LOVE harder, I learned to be fearless, I learned to live with grief, and I became stronger.
I documented Leos story from birth until the last day we held him in our arms through photographs. Every tiny moment we had with Leo will be cherished for a lifetime. Im blessed to say God gave us our rainbow baby Luciano and Im so happy we have those photographs to tell him all about his strong baby brother in heaven. So when I tell you it's an honor to capture your everyday moments, your milestones, tell your story... I mean it with all my heart.
A happy heart makes the face cheerful

“Hold on to the tiniest moments and cherish them with all your heart, they will become tomorrow’s most precious memories”.
I mean each one of those words with all my heart. My mission is to connect and build strong relationships with my clients. You become family and your moments become moments I hold close to my heart.
Our lives are filled with so many beautiful moments but so many times in the blink of an eye we are on to the next day...next holiday… and next year. I've learned to honor the big, small, and in-between moments we are blessed to have. When you book a session with me you are booking an experience. When you look back at your photographs, your memories, I want you to feel and relive those moments...the UNSCRIPTED VERSION...the one that tells your STORY for generations to come.
Our collections are customized with you in mind. We want to guide you through the process and assure we meet your needs and desires. The collections are designed to provide you a relaxed and care free experience from the very beginning. Together we will go through styling, picking a location, ordering prints or creating an album. I got you covered.
