Maria Ponce
Maria is a commercial and fashion portrait photographer. She grew up in Wilmette, a suburb of Chicago. After graduating from Indiana University in 2002, she lived and worked in Atlanta, New York, Paris, and LA. She moved back to Chicago to open up a studio in Ravenswood where she is happily clicking away.

As a soon to be mother, Ponce sought to develop a raw and iconic expression of childhood through her lens. It is the romantic innocence of her subjects paired with forward fashion and style that embodies a natural yet whimsical story behind each portrait. The beauty and allure of her imagery is central to the timelessness of her work – virtually unseen in child portraiture before now.
