Maria Hunter Photography
Member of the Wedding Photojournalist Association - WPJA

I studied photography at the University of California - Santa Cruz and received a degree in art with a concentration in photography. In 2000 I moved to New York City and began an internship with portrait photographer Joyce Tenneson. Under her tutelage, I began to develop my own personal portrait style, a blend of photojournalism and relaxed portraiture.

I shoot every family session personally and have always loved photographing children and families. I must admit, not surprisingly, with the birth of my first child in 2012, my love for photographing babies was taken to a whole new level! I have become obsessed with artistically capturing the story of my daughters’ childhoods. I have found that passion spills over abundantly to my amazing clients as I aim to create authentic, beautiful portraits full of real moments, laughter, and love.
