I asked Maria to answer a few questions for me, so here we go!
JA: If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
M: I would travel to India because the culture and people are fascinating to me.
JA: Who are your favorite bands/singers?
M: I cannot name a single band or singer but a few of my favorites as of now are NeverShoutNever and Dispatch.
JA: What is your favorite meal?
JA: If you could meet anyone, alive or dead, who would you choose and why?
JA: Who is your biggest role model?
Can we just pause for a moment to appreciate how beautiful Maria's eyes are?
JA: What are your favorite clothing stores?
JA: What is your favorite book?
JA: What is on the walls in your room?
Just look at this pose! I told Maria to play with her necklace and this is what she did. So editorial!
JA: What is your dream job?
JA: Where would you like to go to art school?
This little field was full of grasshoppers. Every time we took a step, a swarm of them would go jumping : ) This rocking chair has been in my family for years. I was happy to be able to use it in this shoot.
JA: If you could do one thing to make the world a better place, what would it be?
As you may have noticed, Maria is an artist, so what better way to celebrate that than to capture that on camera?
Maria, I had a fabulous time with you. Your gallery will be ready soon!
