I wanted to find someone I could trust and who 'got' me. I had regular headshots before but they showed no personality and I wanted something more. My new images have had a huge impact on my brand and I use them everywhere.

Hi, I'm Maria
the spark behind the colourful brand

I create relaxed impactful brand stories and images that bring your business to life by showing your audience who you are, what you do and why they should care.

For over 10 years I have been capturing people at weddings, with their families, and telling photographic stories of brands doing what they love most and what they are truly passionate about.

You’ll mostly find me working in and around London and the South East or hiking outside in nature in Kent where I live with my husband, 2 little people and 2 lazy cats.

I’m a real adventurer at heart and after travelling a lot as a child, I am now lucky enough to travel and photograph people and businesses all across the UK and the rest of the world.

I have a true passion for storytelling and I can’t wait to show your and your brand’s personalities and passion when we work together.

Your Story

Let’s tell your story in a way that resonates with your clients, showing them in a natural way who you are and what you do before they’ve even picked up the phone.


Nurture Connection

Impactful photography stops the scroll, grabs attention, and helps your clients connect to you.


Create Emotion

Communicate your message in a way that resonates with your audience on an emotional level.


Increase Awareness

Get more visible and more engagement with images that sell what you do, so you don’t have to.

Maria was an absolute pleasure to work with. She made the booking and preparation process very simple and straightforward. I felt very comfortable during the shoot with her, and she did a great job getting me to relax and try different poses. The photos look brilliant. I can thoroughly recommend her, and will definitely be working with her again in the future!
