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, glitter and all things Kate Spade (like seriously, I may have a problem haha!) 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 editing, marketing, shooting or living the dream, I'm most definitely painting, reading, imagining and most likely 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 faith, my family and my photography.  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.
