Before I left Haiti, yet again, I had the chance to go out in the early morning hours + capture this sweet friend of mine .
To know Maria, is to love her.
She lives her life so passionately + full that it makes everyone around her want to be a part of what she is doing.
She started a Non-Profit on her own with no money, no job, and all the faith in God that He was going to provide.
And now, she stands today, with a thriving non-profit helping women come out of dark situations + giving them hope + a future.
I am honored to know her and call her one of my best friends.
Oh, and as if you couldn't tell - she's freaking gorgeous, too.
