Please, make yourself at home

 Kindness has always been my "thing". "Kill 'em with kindness" was my motto all throughout high school. You never know what battle the person next to you is fighting. It's so important to be kind to others. I work to create a positive space online because I believe everyone deserves to be treated with kindness. Choose kindness.

I believe the world needs more kindness.

Mary’s pictures of our family were beyond our highest expectations! She really has an eye for details and colors. Under Mary’s direction, our session felt seamless and natural. She made us laugh and captured so many in the moment photos. We were thrilled with her creative prop ideas and unique background choices. Not only is she lovely and easy to work with, her final product is top notch quality and precision. Highly recommend.

"Mary has become a key part of our family."

Kind Words

"Mary has been taking photos of my boys for years and she always knows how to capture them in their best light! My oldest is always asking when we are going to take pictures with Mary again. He views our sessions with her more like play dates than photoshoots which is always a plus with little ones!! She is professional, courteous, flexible and fun! Mary has become a key part of our family while capturing our memories and we wouldn’t have it any other way.”
