Bits of Me...It's all in the details...
Owner and Photographer Maria Traversa, is a Chicago based artist specializing in casual, creative, editorial style portraiture with Boudoir, Engagements, Maternity, Family, Individual sessions, Professional Headshots and MORE!
The name 'LUMA' originating from her two children Luca & Emma, became the drive to turn her passion for photography into a career. As a hairstylist of over 15 years, Maria's creative knack is continually expressed throughout her daily life. Her love for individual style, music, dance, art & photography motivates her "behind-the-chair" and "behind-the-lens!"
"When my son was turning two I brought him on our first photography journey. I had no professional experience or classes, only a camera and a vision. All dressed in his ripped jeans, white tank & Guitar Hero's play guitar, we went searching for the perfect location. His 'rock star themed birthday' was a week away. I drove aimlessly around town. A back road for semis and factories led me to this great rubble stoned pavement where an America flag hung on a wire fence. The gentleman working the yard was extremely kind & patient. He went as far as re-directing a couple truck drivers, so I could snap away."
"I have grandkids of my own' he said, 'I think it's great what you're doing..."
By 2012, Maria's ambition for something exciting and new sprung into a life-changing career!
