Maia Photography, Sydney NSW
How did you get started as a photographer?
I’ve been a photography enthusiast for many many years, who always loved to take pictures and made memories from every occasion. Every trip or chance I had, was the perfect excuse to take on my camera and capture the wonders that life has to offer.
Life has granted me with a lovely daughter 3 years ago. With more time to spend during my maternity leave, I’ve been studying photography on a professional level, and photo-shooting my little one like there is no tomorrow. It was at that moment I decided to turn my passion into my carrier and bring my photography to the next level.
I specialise in newborn, baby, toddler and maternity photography. I own a collection of simple and classic sets and props for your unique portraits.
What did life look like before photography?
I was accountant. I was working in a factory as a production manager.
Tell us about a day in the life of a professional photographer …
Take the girls to childcare, edit, so session, wash, disinfect and all again…
Do you have a special story to share?
I do all the photos of newborns with nappies, you can imagine the reason 🙂
If you could photograph 1 thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Newborns were my inspiration and for sure they are my passion.
What is the best thing about your job?
I am able to create memories for life….
Tell us something we don’t know about professional photography …
Having a bad experience with a photographer when I was pregnant was the reason I am very upfront with money details, I don’t think anyone deserves something similar…
If you weren’t a photographer, what would you be doing?
I can’t imagine a life where i am not taking photos….
Here’s a blank cheque! What are you going to spend it on for your business?
Probably more maternity dresses… I am obsessed!
