MARIA PETERSON

Chicago-based but I’m traveling a lot these days…

Hello there! :)  First of all, I just want to say that I’m into simplicity and I hope that my website will not overwhelm you, but that it is EASY for you to navigate and you will get a sense of who I am and how I shoot.  For me, good images come out of trust and the relaxed relationship that we have with each other…so the more you can drop your guard because you trust and like me, the easier it is for me to capture the REAL you!  I am an on-location, natural light photographer and I love what I do.  I count it a blessing that I get to integrate work and play on a regular basis.  I care deeply that you not only love your images, but that our time together is fun and refreshing.  So have a good time looking around and let’s talk soon.
