About Me

I am quirky photographer who is passionate about taking awesome photos.
I have an obsession with creating imagery that is unique and expressive...and I've decided to make that obsession into a career.

Working with me is very much a creative process- I like creating sets or even finding locations that suit the concept but I am a very reactionary photographer. I play off the model, the styling, the location...everything and dance around you (sometimes literally) and search for the perfect shot. I want to create imagery that speaks to you, imagery that describes you (and images that generally just kick ass).

I currently work on location for most of my shoots - whether that be outside or an inside location that I acquire.

What people say:
Maura is the awesome-sauce of photography. If you don’t hire her you’ll regret it. As a professional in the modeling industry it’s all about quality, which is exactly what you’ll get when you hire Maura. It’s as if while you are shooting with her you share the same brain. You can’t really ask for more in a photographer than this photography bad-ass!
- Mel Carver, model and actress.

"Maura did my wedding photography and it was everything I could have asked for. Elegant, modern, unique and classy. I absolutely love every photograph she took! What a wonderfully professional young adult. I would definatly suggest her to anyone looking to have any type of work done!"
- Sarah Marcella Hallee

I was really impressesd with Maura’s combination of professionalism and approachability. I was very happy with the images I received and she kept me posted through planning, shooting, and post-production so I felt confident that I would get exactly what I needed. I look forward to using her services again!
