I'm Maria Shayna, a Photographer, Writer, and Digital Marketer in Northern California.
Whether I'm behind the camera or helping businesses bring their brands to life, I am in love with storytelling. I feel privileged to work with each family, couple, business owner, and individual I meet.

marketing portfolios below.
As a photographer, I've had a camera in my hand since I was 14, developing film, chasing sunsets, and capturing memories. I studied Art Studio Photography, Communications and Spanish at Sonoma State with an emphasis on photojournalism.
My favorite photographs capture the authentic and candid connection between couples and families. I offer special occasion portraits, lifestyle and marketing photos, and travel-adventure landscapes.
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 blogging, plant-based meals, and sharing landscapes and my adventures with my partner and animals.
As a marketer, I specialize in three areas: consulting, social media management and copywriting. Whether you need an evaluation of your organization's marketing, need creative assistance with your social media, or could use a copywriting and editing expert to create or proof content, I've got you covered. I offer a variety of packages and services at various price points and I'd love to help design a package for you.
