Maria Newhouse

Artist Statement

Maria Newhouse is an accomplished photographer who has been capturing life’s special moments for over a decade. Based in Kalamazoo, Maria specializes in family photography, lifestyle newborn photography, and portrait photography. Her passion for photography stems from her own experience as a mother to four amazing children, which allows her to connect with families and bring out their unique personalities in her images. Since launching Maria Newhouse Photography in 2019, Maria has built a reputation for her creative and timeless work. Her attention to detail, knack with natural light, and ability to capture candid moments are just a few of the reasons why her clients keep coming back. Maria’s focus on family and love is evident in every photograph she takes. Whether it’s a family portrait or a newborn session, Maria proudly approaches each shoot with the utmost care and attention to detail. She believes that every moment is worth capturing, and loves nothing more than creating beautiful images that will be cherished for years to come. A proud partner with Ballet Kalamazoo, where two of her children dance, Maria takes great joy in photographing the beauty and creativity that go into all of their performances. Photos on display include images from Ballet Kalamazoo’s annual production of The Nutcracker as well as images captured to promote the company’s upcoming production of Snow White. While a departure from her normal subject matter, the landscape series “Sun” and “Ice” – also on display – are nonetheless representative of her artistic style. Shot in Georgia and Michigan, these series capture the peaceful natural beauty that surrounds us.
