ABOUT

Meet the Photographer

Welcome! Bienvenidos! Benvenuto! Bienvenue!

My name is O'mayra but please call me Maya. 

I am a Quirky Single Mom, Entrepreneur, Aromatherapist, 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 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's unfolded on its own; that 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.
