Mary is such a blessing to meet! She was very patient with me and the family. She photograph maternity and spring pictures for us at a neighborhood park. She is a true professional, at the best affordable price! I am recommending her to everyone I know.Apr 22, 2017Verified
Newborn Portrait Photography
Mary did an amazing job taking photos of my newborn! She was very gentle and patient with him to get all of the outfits changed. We received so many beautiful photos and she even sent us coupons to order prints. She has a wonderful creative eye and I highly recommend her!Mar 16, 2017Verified
Mary was a pleasure to work with and was very prompt in answering my messages. She was also great at clarifying what I was getting for my money. I have not printed any of the photos yet, but online my favorite 20 or so photos are super. For most of her photos, the lighting quality was superb. I have a keen eye for photography, so I noticed that a lot of the photos could have been edited more professionally. If she has Photoshop or better, she could have removed some annoying street signs and trash cans that were in our backgrounds. Some of the photos could have been cropped a little bit differently to make them more pleasing to the eye. I would certainly use Mary again because she is awesome, flexible, relaxed, prompt, and professional. I would just ask her if she could concentrate a bit more on editing and share some examples so she could see what I was seeing.Jul 14, 2017
Mary has photographed my kids a few times now and I couldn't be happier!! She took her time and did many backgrounds, I never felt rushed and not on a time clock like some others I have experienced. She is very reasonably priced too, which is s huge bonus. She really connects to her clients and is real and down to earth. You will not be dissatisfied if you choose Mary!!Jun 13, 2016
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Yes, my hourly portrait session rate is $285. I offer discounts to sessions with multiple hours or sessions booked. For 1st time clients I require a 50% non-refundable booking fee. Contracts are sent via PayPal. My fee includes my time, the session, travel, editing and approximately 30 digital images. My editing is very simple, this means tone, exposure, shadow, and color to align with my style. If you are wanting additional items “photoshopped” please ask about my photoshop pricing and let’s review what your expectations are. Please note; what you see in the mirror is what you’ll see in photos. If you select a session in the street, you’ll see street signs, trash cans, light poles, etc. If you have any concerns during your session, please speak up. These are your images and I want you to love them! :)
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I love to meet or call potential clients. It's very important to me that I understand a clients expectations so that I can exceed them :-). Once a client has booked, I provide guides for the session and help plan locations/times and even outfits if needed.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I took several film photography courses years ago that established my foundation. The transition to digital was slow and I love it. I am currently enrolled in The Wedding [photography] School and I am attending Rollins College for my business management degree.
