“A single crocus blossom ought to be enough to convince our heart that springtime, no matter how predictable, is somehow a gift, gratis…a grace.”

How many of us are coming out of 2020 and ready for new start? If I’ve learned anything, it would be to pursue things that matter and find joy in every moment. Photography remains the one constant to help me linger in the beauty all around me, in every season. And for that, I’m truly grateful.

Hello!!!  I’m the face behind the camera at Maria Peterson Photography!  The day after Christmas was amazingly beautiful in Chicago and this happened!  :)  I finally have new photos to update my social media sites! Thanks to my daughter, Chloe, for being both the stylist and photographer.
