The girl with a camera 

Greetings, my name is Maryssa Rose Chavez, the owner of Maryssa Rose Photography. I was Born and raised in the Espanola Valley in Northern New Mexico, this is also where I began my journey into the photographic world. I come from humble beginnings, and know the meaning of hard work. I started my business when I was 16 years old, and first began photographing seniors that I knew personally at school. Currently I am a Junior in college at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, NM, where I am a double major in Photography and International Studies with a minor in Business/Marketing.  

What the eye sees is a synthesis of who you are and all you have learned. This what I would call the language of photography
— Graciela Itrubide

My goal as a business owner, is to always leave the people I photograph feeling 110% satisfied with not only the work they receive, but that the time spent with me was pleasant and worthwhile. I am in hopes that I touch your life in a positive way and extend nothing but love and light to you. 

My goal as a artist is to leave you with a story, something to reflect on, after spending time with my images. Photography is so much more than the act of writing with light, it is much more intimate than that. It's the act of getting close enough to understand, and pulling back enough to admire.

Thank you for taking the time to look, and be present in my corner of the world, it means more than words can say. 

♥ - Maryssa
