About Maria and White Whiskers Photography



My love of photography began at a very early age as I watched and was influenced by my mom who documented much of our lives with her camera.

Mom filled many photo albums with pictures of our family vacations, special occasions and life’s day to day.  She gave me my first camera on my 11th birthday.

I got some formal training in college and it was there that I fell in love with capturing and creating images.  After college, I followed a different path because I thought it was the grown up thing to do, but never strayed too far from the love of art and never stopped shooting.

In 2009, I combined my love of animals with my photography and White Whiskers Photography was born.
