Hey! I’m Maya

        Born and raised on the Oregon coast, I spend most of my free time hiking with my dogs, riding our horses with my friends and whipping up delicious homemade meals with my long time sweetheart, DJ. I have been photographing the people, animals and places I love since I “borrowed” my mother’s film camera in 99’ and began documenting and highlighting the natural world around me.

       As a photographer, I take a very candid approach to each shoot. Sometimes we get so caught up in staging a perfectly synchronized scene, that we lose the warmth and the energy of those sweet moments.  I believe the most beautiful images are best captured during free and un-tethered times.


      I will approach your shoot with creativity, heart, a whole lot of laughter      

 and love because that's just the way I am.

Let's have fun, let's get creative!
