Welcome to
Mary Kathleen Photography

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.

"More than I even imagined"

Really, the entire experience was much more than I even imagined."
