something about mary

I help women entrepreneurs transform their personal brands through exceptional imagery.

Branding serves as a powerful tool to tell your story.

Whether you are an entrepreneur creating your empire or with a company helping to build theirs, how you present your true self to the world is absolutely vital.

It’s more than a portrait session. It’s an intimate branding experience we create together. We peel away the layers, get real, get energized, work hard & have fun.

Together, we create a series of images that reveal your essence, defy standards & empower your brand.

Testimonial on Retreat Photography

kind words

“Mary has photographed my in-person retreats, my clients’ brand sessions, my team, and my own personal & family portraits.

Every image she takes is candid, raw, and honest.

She knows how to capture a real person in a real moment.

She makes me – and everyone she photographs – feel beautiful. Because she sees us.”
