Photography freezes time for a moment to capture a small piece of who you are. It's the art you show your loved ones, hang on your walls, and pass along to future generations.
It's feeling through imagery that tells a story—your story.
Let's capture your story and create printable, shareable, memorable photos in Sonoma County, Marin, Napa, and the surrounding Bay Area.
“Maria is by far the best photographer I have ever used and since our first shoot she has been the only professional I have even thought of using. I have used her for multiple different shoots from portraits to capturing musical gigs and she always delivers the highest standard of pictures in a timely manner. I have always been one that hates having my picture taken but Maria makes it feel as if you're just hanging out with a friend without the pressure of being photographed, and is extremely passionate, knowledgeable, and professional in her craft. If you are looking for a reliable and talented photographer for any occasion, look no further than Maria!"

Let's Capture the Beauty
Hi, I'm Maria Shayna, a Sonoma County and Bay Area Brand, Portrait, Family, and Small Event Photographer.
I've been photographing families, couples, events, and environmental headshots since 2009. In addition to a decade + of working as a freelance and second photographer, I began studying film in 2006 and earned a degree in communications, Spanish and photography in 2014.
Whether I'm behind the camera or helping organizations bring their brands to life, I am in love with storytelling and inspiring others to live in their truth. I feel privileged to work with my clients and tell their stories. If you'd like to connect before booking, feel free to text or email for a time to talk: 707-536-1176, email@example.com.
