Maureen Porto is an award-winning portrait photographer who is passionately dedicated to helping ambitious, camera-shy professionals create eye-catching headshots and magnetic marketing images. Having spent far too long feeling awkward and uncomfortable in front of the camera, Maureen made it her mission to design a guided, relaxed process that ensures her clients feel comfortable and confident every step of the way. Her modern business portraits and brand marketing images are known to attract ideal audience attention and drive results. Over the last 15 years, her work has been featured in People Magazine, Elle, House Beautiful, The Washington Post, and countless other local and national publications.
The portraits she’s created in her Annapolis, Maryland studio and on location have earned her opportunities to photograph clients from coast to coast including a variety of creatives, executives, politicians, and celebrities, but she is most energized when capturing local entrepreneurs. Through her work creating authentic brand marketing images for small businesses, Maureen strives to foster local development and reduce the power of dominant corporations. She is happiest when unplugged and off the grid, enjoying dispersed camping with her husband, Mark, and two children.
