Maura B. McConnell Photography
I’m a professional photographer based in Media, PA who loves to work with people.
My love affair with photography began my junior year of High School when I got my first camera and was immediately drawn to taking pictures. In college, I parlayed this interest into a Fine Arts minor while honing my skills traveling abroad in all sorts of environments. After college, I was given the opportunity to shoot professionally for The Hill Newspaper in Washington, DC where I rose to the rank of Photo Editor developing both technically and stylistically in the highly competitive, action-packed world of photojournalism.
Yearning to travel again, I enlisted in the Peace Corps and spent two years in Senegal, West Africa. Although my professional career was on hold, I was able to refine my candid style and capture some beautiful moments in my village and surrounding locations.
My professional experience resumed upon my return when I took a job with Rosen Publishing in New York City. As Staff Photographer I was responsible for photographically illustrating children’s educational books.
Today I’m able to combine all of my experience into an amazing career as a Freelance Photographer. I shoot events as the Staff Photographer for the Media Theater, teach digital photography to adults and teenagers at the YMCA and shoot Weddings, Events, Portraits, Travel and Corporate work with a unique candid flair.
Please allow me the opportunity to create beautiful, heartwarming images of your family, experiences, and events.
