My name is Maria Potashova and I'm a Montrealer professional photographer, specializing in fine art portraits, children and family photography. I enjoy to capture families, pregnancy, newborns, babies and kids in a way that is arty, real, romantic, and full of life. Nothing gives me more joy than to spend my time creating stunning photos for you to decorate your home, memories you can pass down throughout the generations. I enjoy indoor newborn shoots, as well as outdoor family and maternity photography. Photography has become as much a part of my life as the air I breathe. I absolutely fall in love with every single family who trusts me to capture them. Since, I'm a visual person, I find it is always easier to describe feelings, ideas and emotion through imagery in my fresh, fine art style.
