TAURUS, ENNEAGRAM 3, FIRST-BORN, LATINA

Hi there! If you’ve made it to this section of my website, I’ll take it you want to know a little bit about me. I’m Maria & I’m a mom to a beautiful 7-yr old boy.

I value motherhood, family, romance, laughter, deep conversations, nature, and adventures. 
If I’m not photographing wonderful people, I like to stay active (crossfit or indoor cycling). You have to be in order to be a great photographer… you just never know when you’ll need to climb a tree to get that perfect angle, y’know?

I’ve been fortunate to tell stories through photography for over 10 years and in the Summer of 2021, I finally quit my 9-5 super safe and predictable office job to fully focus on running my own photography business.

I believe that everyone deserves the absolute best and I do not take on every session or wedding I’m approached to photograph. I prefer passionate, authentic, soulful, vibrant images over boring and cookie-cutter.

If you’re still vibing with me and would like to reach out, if you have a story you’d like me to photograph, please contact me! I’d love to connect with you too!

 

FAQ

Where are you located? Do you travel?
I am in South Florida and my main playgrounds are between Key West and West Palm Beach.
If you’re on Instagram, follow along (@clickinmar) as I share travel schedules outside of South Florida. If I have multiple sessions scheduled, travel fees are waived.
 
I want to schedule my session at Vizcaya or Fairchild Botanical Gardens!
Let’s do it! I recommend you check these locations’ websites before you decide just to make sure they do not require a photo permit. Most of the time they do and the cost of it will be added to your session fee.
 
When will I receive my pictures?
Standard turnaround time is 20 days from the day of the session. For elopements/weddings, standard turnaround time can range from 8-16 weeks depending on season.
 
Will I get the raw/unedited files?
No, you won’t. It is not standard to give out RAW files as they are not the truest representation of a photographer’s work. I spend as much time as needed picking out the absolute best images + editing them. Trust me, I will give you every single image that deserves to be shared with you.
 
At what time should we shoot?
This will always vary by season but my preference is no more than one hour after sunrise and no more than one hour prior to sunset. Why? it’s not as hot during these times and the sun won’t be as harsh –this often creates squinty eyes, harsh shadows on faces, and less sweat! Of course, if there is a specific time that works for you, I am 100% open to making this work.
