I am a photographer and graphic designer, therefore whenever I take a photo, I always pay a lot of attention to framing it properly. I love colorful photographs, capturing emotions and helping clients pose for the perfect shot. I love taking photos of clients outdoors, in a beautiful natural surroundings, but also in studio where we can create unique atmosphere and work with different lighting setups and backdrops in order to create a perfect photograph. I am very open to clients' ideas, and want to go above and beyond to deliver great pictures that both of us are going to enjoy.

    You have done many shots for us in the past, but you went above and beyond to capture these the way we wanted, and we got them all before it started pouring rain. The turnaround for photos is always quick! My jaw dropped when i saw the final result i could not stop looking at them! Thank you once again for your crrativity and professionalisam!

    Maria was excellent and knew how to work her camera outside and in an inside setting. When I visit Chicago again she will be the photographer I choose.
