11 Years of experience

I became a professional photographer because I am excited about life. I know the feeling of wanting to make a memory last. Whether it is your beautiful face or your intelligent product, I understand the importance of presenting what you have to offer, how you want to offer it. I excel in all photography genres including event, marketing, and lifestyle captures. I love working with children and newborns. I am a lady of family with a passion for this craft like no other. Clients have told me they appreciate my down to earth, relaxed style that rests at ease in both the sports field and the ballroom.

Awards, honors and recognition

I am the lead photographer and creative director at the Norwalk Inn in Norwalk, CT. I was also the designated photographer in the Norwalk, CT Mayor's Ball in 2020.

    Maria is a fantastic photographer!!! Archangel's Greek School students were so bright and proud of wearing their traditional costumes, and Maria managed to capture all those emotions in the photos!!!


    These photos will be one of the best Greek school memories for all students and parents.


    We are so grateful for this job, Maria. Thank you so much!!!

    Working with Maria was by far one of the best experiences I had thus far. The level of professionalism, humbleness, work ethic and motivation is beyond crazy and what I have seen ever! I would highly recommend Maria for any Photoshoot!

    We had such a great experience recently with Maria! I took my daughters for a shoot with her and they had a great time! Not only did Maria offer so

    Many suggestions and ideas but she was easy to talk to and helped us get exactly what we needed! My girls really enjoyed their photo shoot and it was all so natural because Maria has created a wonderful environment! I highly recommend her for any event that you might need a photographer or even just a fun photo shoot!! Maria is an expert and we are already planning on booking our next photo shoot with her!

    We recently did a maternity shoot and a newborn lifestyle shoot with Maria. I had not been planning to do a maternity shoot but Maria was wonderful and put us at ease! The photos turned out beautiful. Maria also came to our house to do a newborn shoot when our son was 2 weeks old. She was so patient and took the time to get so many great photos. We were so happy with how the pictures came out and how easy and flexible Maria was. I would highly recommend her and look forward to taking more family photos with her in the future!

    Maria does the photography for the sales office at the Norwalk Inn. Her pictures are excellent. Maria is our dedicated hotel photographer. She is the only photographer we recommend. Given the choice, we will only use her work!
