I'M maria!
horse MOM,
AND dreamer

The biggest passion in life is my horse. I show competitively in a sport called Eventing, which is basically an equestrian triathlon. This sport is highly addictive so when I’m not spending my weekends shooting weddings, you can usually find me at a horse show. Beyond horses, I’m obsessed with all animals and would seriously rescue all the unwanted animals of the world if I could but for now I’ll settle for my yellow lab dog, two barn cats and two horses. 

I have the best tiny person for a daughter named Emerley. She was born in September 2020 and has seriously changed my life for the better. She's silly and her giggles are infectious. She also has the best daddy in the entire world. I'm proud to be his wife for 11 years and counting. 

I love craft beer, junk food and football. Darks, sours or fruits are my top three and yes, I’m a forever Lions fan, no matter how many times they lose. I blame my dad. :) I love books and my collection has outgrown my two massive bookcases. Half of them came from my grandma which makes them even more special to me. I love going antiquing with my mom. We could easily spend any entire weekend treasure hunting and never get bored. 

I’m a happy-go-lucky person. I smile and laugh a ton, and love being around people that are equally as happy. I have a kind heart that I largely wear on my sleeve. I’m a good listener and strive very hard to make everyone around me as happy as possible - which sometimes a blessing and a curse but I believe it has made me a better businesswoman and friend. 

I believe some of the best conversations happen over good food so let’s hang out over your favorite snack, get a drink and chat all about your big, big plans.
