I'm Mary- locally grown on the Space Coast. I'm a wife to an engineer and a brand new mama to twin boys. I'd like to think I'm a cool mom. The last 6 years of my life were spent in the classroom as a local teacher. Life is WAY too short so I decided to jump into a profession which I loved. Balancing two careers was lots of fun but raising my boys and capturing memories are my full-time jobs now.

My photography journey began when I purchased my first "real camera" in high school. After years of taking photography courses, shooting engagements, family shoots, and couples for fun; I decided to take the advice of those around me and grow a business.

I understand that not everyone is comfortable in front of the camera. I tend to gravitate towards the back of the camera rather than the front myself.  This has helped me to work with clients on comfortable and natural poses that work for them. One of my main priorities (besides producing quality work) is making sure the photo experience is fun and personalized.

I find joy in what I do and would love to be there for you and capture the real, raw, and sometimes weird feelings.
