Hello! I’m Maria and I am a Photographer based in Northwest Indiana (about an hour south of Chicago). I enjoy capturing photos of birds and other wildlife as well and landscapes, sunsets, up close photos of the moon and I really love to take close up shots of flowers with a shallow depth of field! I am also a bokeh addict. Hope you enjoy my gallery!
