You've seen my work... and now you want to know who I am.

Well, I was born and raised in Panama, and I moved to the US in 2005 to pursue my life long dream of becoming a photographer. Call it a leap of faith (call it a scholarship) I took my things -- well, let's be real, thing -- and took a chance in this cut throat industry.

After becoming a SCAD alumni in 2008 (aaand getting married to another scaddy) we moved to the Golden State to work in the industry. Can I just say it's been crazy?! But the good crazy, like the crazy awesome. And stressful, but fun. Like fun stressful, or stressful fun. Or crazy stressful fun... please forgive my Spanish. 

It's 2017 (the future for some) I work as a photographer in LA, I snagged myself a wonderful bearded man, and we have 3 kids. Yes, a football team.
I mostly photograph lookbooks,lifestyle portraiture, and kids being kids. 

You can also find me working for other photographers as a digital tech.

Ciao for now,
María
