Greetings, Maia here! I finally made it to Atlanta! My 15 years of photography experience consists of many genres and creating visuals for others to capture moments that I/we brought to life –– it's pretty fantastic that others get to see what is in your head. I specialize mostly in music, entertainment,  creatives, brands, and graphic designing. Also, I have experience in wedding photography. I have worked for One23 Events - JX Venue and Studio J The Loft  in Stillwater, MN (as seen on The Knot and Wedding Wire.com). Currently capturing photos for Realistic Productions LLC and Graphic designing for Hear for Good Music, LLC (Timbaland's Chief Sound Designer). 

I have been involved in photography since I was ten. My background is in dance, which helped me visualize my art, and that talent assisted me when capturing moments to bring to life. Since then, I have increased my knowledge of Adobe software and camera gear, allowing me to excel in photography for the past decade.

Lens This Beauty was created to remind others to be confident in their beauty–– inside and out and to remind me of my own. We all see the world through different lenses 😉 

Lens This Beauty Photography provides services such as:

- Portraits (self-portraits surreal, fantasy, family, couples, head-shots, & branding - marketing for content creation)

- Music (recording sessions in-studio, etc.) 

- Events (parties, corporate, grand openings, weddings, etc. )

- Brands (commercial, Still photography, products, lifestyle)

and Lastly, 

- Graphic Designs (Logos, product boxes, album covers)

I know that I am not the only photographer out there so what makes me different from others? I am passionate about telling stories through my photos and mini videos, and helping others share their life stories––including mine, which I have been doing for over 10 years!

 

Through my journey of creative expression, I have enjoyed capturing art and documenting the journeys of others. No matter how long it's been, I'm still genuinely excited about what I do. It’s about leaving a mark and a legacy for the next generation to be inspired by. 

In my spare time, you can find me drinking tea and finding ways to bring others value––along with truly making an impact. In addition, I enjoy honesty, loyalty, and a clean eating lifestyle.
