Mary Bradshaw Photography
About this pro
mary was AWESOME with my baby girl! she came to us, so we didn't have to leave our baby's comfort zone, and took the most fabulous pictures of her! these were her newborn pics, and me being a new mom, i knew i wanted to remember her newborn faces and little quirks, and she caught those...not just her sitting there like most of those places that my girlfriends used. she even caught her having the biggest spit up EVER! again, being a first time mom, i was freaking out at first, but to this day, that is my favorite picture!! (well, one of them). mary captures way more 'real' stuff, which is what i love...i'm noticing that my baby girl grows by the second, and she has an eye for catching unique quirks that she grows out of,. but the pictures help me remember them forever!! i love mary and will continue to use her for not only pictures of my baby girl, but also other events as they come up in life...Jul 21, 2010

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I try new things all the time. My continuing education happens every day, every time I'm behind my camera or at my computer. I like to try new things even if it doesn't work. I play with color, black and white and different filters. Sometimes the picture as is works best. Sometimes it's best to go a little crazy.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I've always been very creative. I took a photography class in college which lead to a career as a news photographer. News photography included house fires, car wrecks and dead bodies. I loved it all. The rush the pressure... but after a while, I just needed a change. I went into radio for 15 years but missed photography. I picked it back up but only as an artist this time.
