Meet the Photographer
Welcome! Bienvenidos! Benvenuto! Bienvenue!
My name is O'mayra but please call me Maya.
I am a Quirky Single Mom, Entrepreneur, Life Purpose Coach, Crafter, Web Designer, World Traveler and a Storytelling Shutterbug.
Photography has been a huge part of my life and my journey into the art of visual storytelling. I first discovered photography at age 13 when I was gifted a Vintage 110 Flash Camera. I am not only inspired by the beauty, simplicity and mystery that surrounds us, but being able to capture something that's raw, that evokes different emotions, that unfolds on its own, makes the shot more meaningful. There is something unique and special about capturing a moment that can transport the viewers into a particular scene, ambience or a memory.
Despite being an amateur photographer, many of my images have been published in product advertisements, printed and online newspapers and travel magazines.

Maya made our daughters 1st Birthday/Family Shoot a lot of fun. She came with lots of props that kept our little girl entertained and us laughing.

Maya and I did a street photography story together highlighting the homeless problem in NYC. A French photographer visiting my museum saw her work and immediately fell in love. Months later we received a letter from him where he mentioned her in a documentary he was producing.
