Hello Friends

I'm Maria Shayna, a Creative Storyteller through Photography, Writing, Music, and Digital Marketing in Northern California. 


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 story.

About Me

As a photographer, I've had a camera in my hand since I was 14, developing film, chasing sunsets, and documenting stories. I studied journalism and Spanish with a minor in art studio at Sonoma State and spent a year in Madrid, Spain finishing my linguistics degree, tutoring, and traveling.

My favorite photographs capture authentic landscapes and candid connections between couples and families. I offer special occasion portraits, lifestyle and marketing photos, and landscape photography for local tourism. 


The majority of my work is nature-based, allowing my subjects to shine while being surrounded by the beauty of the Earth. I am a travel and hike enthusiast and enjoy sharing my adventures with my partner and animals through social.


I regularly create music, poetry, and art, which I share on Instagram, FB, and YouTube and I'd love for you to follow along. You can get to know me more on my Insta here.
