As a middle child, I supposed it is normal to try to entertain oneself. I was always a busy little bee. It all started with my mom's scrap piece of fabric, pie dough or whatever else she was working on. At one time, I was completely obsessed about drawing ballerinas.

 

Eventually, in college, photography piqued my interest. My first camera was a film camera (yes, it was before the digital era!! lol). I am thrilled about having my digital camera though. I cannot wait to come home to look at my photographs every time I go on a shoot and be mesmerized allover again. I love finding things/moments that take my breath away: couples in love, excited children, a yummy plate of cake or a certain look on a person. 

 

I hope you enjoy your visit, and do let me know if you are interested in working together: mariaallenphoto@gmail.com
