I met Maria Shockey at church several months ago, and she asked me to take some artist portraits for her recent music endeavors. So we decided on a date, and right as we showed up to shoot it started pouring. We definitely had no trouble capturing the moody artist vibe, and by the end of the session, Maria, my wonderful friend/assistant Brooke, and I were absolutely soaked. Here are some of our photos! Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for Maria's new music in the coming months and years!
