About Me

My name is Maria and I am the owner of Sketchbook Photography!  I am a wife, work-at-home mommy of two beautiful girls, and a photographer in the St. Louis area specializing in newborns and families.  I am a lover of life, light, and all things that sparkle! Most days you can find me at home with my babies where I balance motherhood and running this business that I love so much.  If I'm not working I'm most definitely painting, reading, or rocking out to some tunes with my best girls.  My motto is "messes make memories" so I love to embrace life for what it really is... one great big, beautiful, wonderful mess and photographing that gives me such great joy.

The things I am most passionate about in life are my family, my friends and this business.  I love nothing more than living this life with my people and photographing you with yours.  I hope you will allow me into your lives, even for just a few short hours, to preserve for you your most precious memories in print.
