New babies, cousins, blended families, new pets - your life changes so fast. A fun family outing provides lots of laughs, fresh air and memories for your walls (and Grandma!). I love to photograph you at your favorite park or beach, or on your property. Be present in pictures, your kids will appreciate it!

Wait, what?! How did that happen? Your baby is graduating from high school or college! This is a huge achievement, not just for the graduate, but for parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, teachers, too! Such an exciting time of possibilities. Ask me about adding some family images!
Oh the sheer joy our pets bring to our lives! I have been dog, cat, horse obsessed for as long as I can remember. The bond we have with our pets is so important! I have studied and trained with some masters of the craft, I would love to capture your pets' personalities and their devotion to you.
ALL. THE. DOGS.
Thinking about a portrait session? Great! I would love to talk to you about it! Fill out the contact form and we will talk via Zoom, phone, or text about your family and what you envision for your images. I am always happy to discuss wardrobe, locations, timing and any concerns you may have. I love to photograph couples, families, seniors, pets in a guided documentary style for a variety of posed and candid images that honor your relationships and provide memories for years to come.
Step 1 of 5
If it's been a long time since you've had portraits (JCPenny, anyone?), or you've NEVER had portraits, you are in for a pleasant surprise! Photo sessions are no longer itchy clothes under hot lights! Think of an outing with your favorite people and pets to your favorite beach or park, add a little paparazzi and that's it! No stress and it is completely customizable. Sessions are typically an hour, but I take the time I need to get images you will love. Have teenagers? Less willing spouse? In a time crunch? I totally get it. Let me know and I can work quickly in a short time frame and still deliver beautiful results.
Your Session Guide
Step 2 of 5
Once we have a plan in place I will send a contract you can sign digitally. The signature and 50% retainer guarantees your session time. As the agreed on day approaches, we will absolutely keep an eye on the weather and other factors, and have a back up date. Rescheduling is not a problem, I want you to be comfortable at the session and sometimes that means being flexible! The absolute best time for portraits is the hour or so before the sun sets, which obviously varies throughout the year, but is a good thing to keep in mind.
Keeping In Touch
Step 3 of 5
The day has finally arrived! I will meet you at your chosen location and we will have an hour or so of good times. I want you to be relaxed and comfortable - it will be fun! I love to get a glimpse into your family life - and show you your family from my point of view. Natural interactions make the best images, however I will provide direction and not leave you feeling unsure.
Seniors, feel free to bring a parent (or the whole family) along. I will guide you in a way that is flattering and not awkward. Trust me, EVERYONE is so photogenic at this age!
For pets I use my training and calm demeanor to make sure our subjects are comfortable and not stressed. it's a fun game for them, too!

Step 4 of 5
Your carefully selected and edited photographs will be presented to you in two weeks in a beautiful online gallery. You may share the gallery, use it to order professional prints and artwork, download the images for personal use. I look forward to working with you again!

Not only my favorite photographer but also one of my favorite people! Mary captured my wedding photos at a very unexciting place (the courthouse) and managed to make the moment look just as magical as it felt when I married my husband! Highly recommend trusting Mary to capture the most important moments in your life!
