Hi, I’m mary

I'm Mary, & my journey with cameras and & art goes back as far back as high school. Over the years, I've ventured into various photography styles, exploring different creative avenues. But, the pivotal moment that truly captivated me was when I saw an everyday person being photographed with the kind of allure you'd find on the cover of Vanity Fair. From that moment, I was hooked.

This discovery led me to fully immerse myself in contemporary portraiture, where I not only fell in love with the artistry but also witnessed its transformative impact on the individuals I've been blessed to photograph. With my love for both people and art, I connect with my clients, revealing their unique identity and beauty through creativity. In a world craving connections, I find joy in helping others connect with their true selves.
