Photographer | Free Diver | Nature Enthusiast | Kama'Aina
Hi! I'm Mariah,
I am the daughter of a scientist and an artist. I grew up around the comingling influences of pursuing curiosities, studying how things work, sharing a different perspective with the world, and being a force of compassion.
As a younger person, I pursued a path in hard sciences with the promise of a steady life. What I discovered is that the sciences and art are not mutually exclusive, despite what obvious paths in life present themselves to us.
For so many, 2020 was a year of upheaval. It was during this time in quarantine that I picked up my camera and started studying photography seriously. It became my creative outlet that helped me "find the light" (literally and figuratively) during an unpredictable time.
I am a third generation, self-taught photographer. When I'm not working, I'm snapping photos, surfing, freediving, and cooking.
Thank you for being here! Please inquire for any and all photography, video, and digital content needs. I can't wait to learn more about you.
