About Me

Welcome! My name is Maura and I am a mom, wife and photographer

In my years on this planet I have been a whole bunch of things; actress turned into yoga instructor, which then became librarian, Army wife, homemaker, mother and photographer.

Usually you will find me with a half cup of cold coffee chasing two feisty kiddos and a couple of pretty cool dogs.  I spend my days playing with my kids and dreaming up ways to take beautiful pictures.  Parenting & photography, along with a hefty dose of celebrity gossip, are my obsessions. I get my kids to model for me pretty often by using a combination of patience and bribery and I will do the same for you and your kids! I am in love with my job because I just love meeting new people, taking their pictures and doing whatever ridiculous acrobatics I have to do to get the laughs and then THE shot.

I have studied with some of my photography heroes; Molly Flanagan, Jennifer Warthan and Kellie Hatcher, to name a few and am continually reading, taking workshops, practicing and learning.

I especially love meeting new people, hearing their stories and forging new friendships.
