A bit about Maria Lisa

    Maria Lisa has been photographing people for the last nine years. She has always been a hands on person who loves creating art & pretty things through all types of mediums. It wasn't until high school where she decided to pick up a film camera. At that time, she was in aw by the births of her boyfriend's (now husband) nieces and nephews and wanted to capture their every move! Taking portraits of those little ones naturally blossomed her portrait business as Maria Lisa Photo.  Through the years, Maria Lisa has photographed portraits of all types, weddings, events, lifestyle, real estate, for magazines, as well as, local businesses. 

    As of 2016, she decided to refine her business and change the name to Soul & Grain. The reason for the name change is to make room in her life for what is most important, following her heart, and photographing only what inspires her. As of now, Maria Lisa specializes in photographing lifestyle, portraits and commercial work.  This allows for more balance in life & business. In the future, Maria Lisa plans to make Soul & Grain a team of creative individuals
who work together and have fun creating beautiful photographs. After all, it is certainly a beautiful life!  
We must be sure to document it while we're here, but also remember to step back and enjoy the ride!
