About Mary

I create photographs that express the connection between people and the natural world. I do not take nor capture an image, instead, the camera guides me - I look for moments that are just waiting to be noticed. For over 30 years I’ve traveled through the vast world of photography, weaving in and out of various photographic styles and forms: Film, digital, portraiture, product & food photography, editorial work, media production and fine art photography. I reside in Santa Fe, NM which makes it an ideal location to travel and shoot throughout the southwest region. Whether I’m in the studio or out on location, I strive to push beyond the obvious with my photographic language. It is through the lens where I honor the innate beauty & essence of my subjects, always aware of the elusive in-between moments. As an artist, mother, animal advocate and avid horsewoman, I am able to feel into  moments during a photo session that allows me to see with an eye beyond that of just a photographer.

Since my clients often have the best ideas, I like to involve them in every aspect of the shoot. This requires session planning in person or over the phone to discuss the location, the look and feel of the photography, wardrobe, props, hair and makeup, and all the little details that help create a successful photography experience. Whether you’re looking for a classic black and white portrait, a fresh contemporary look, a simple headshot, or coverage of a special event, keep in mind that anything can happen–this is the exciting part of the creative process, it’s always about possibilities. Please feel free to contact me for package options and a la carte pricing.
