Our stories are the moments we're made of and in the beginning God began writing the best one. The one about you and me.


When I was a little girl growing up in Southwest Atlanta, all of the women raising me up encouraged me to write, draw, dance and paint my way into the life that God has planned for me. Creativity was my way out of my head and into the truths that God said about me. As a believer and follower of Christ, I continue to hold these truths near. You know, the one where He has plans to prosper us and not harm us? Yeah, that's the one.


I believe that because of that, it can happen for you too. I am meant to pay it forward and help you do the same thing with photos and illustrations! Your talents can't be curated in one day, but I can help you realize them in finer moments. My love for creative storytelling is REAL, y'all. So real that it's only right that I made a career out of it. So if you are ready to take a your first lifestyle shoot head on, finally get those family portraits done or inquire about an illustration for your next big project,  I'm your girl.


degree me, please!

I am an alumna of Georgia State University. I received my B.A. in journalism in December of 2018, cum laude. Much of my creative process came from my time spent in undergrad.


Aside from being heavily involved with campus life, I began to take my passion for photography, creative writing and design seriously! I found my purpose and drilled it full speed ahead to “By Cydney Maria” with what is now known as Into Creation Studios, Ltd. Co. 

Currently I am pursuing a certification in Women's Entrepreneurship from Cornell University and will complete the program in fall 2020!
