Mary took family photos for our reunion in Charlottesville. There were five adults and five children spanning eight years old to six months old. Mary did an excellent job at keeping all of the children engaged and smiling. All of the pictures came out beautifully and I would definitely recommend her. She was responsive, scheduled us when we needed it and produced a an awesome product within a week. She was wonderful to work with.

Details: Reunion • Fewer than 25 guests • Outdoors • Digital or online download

Mary was absolutely fantastic. She did a beautiful engagement photo shoot for my partner and I in Shenandoah National Park around sunset. I love the photos we got and the perfect mixture of candids and posed photos she took. She captured our joy perfectly. She was responsive to my inquiries leading up to the shoot, chose a gorgeous location, and helped us feel comfortable throughout. Would definitely recommend to others.

Mary was amazing. She came in and quickly got to work with capturing photos of our wedding. The photos were great and were sent to us exactly when she said they would be with an easy to share link. She was patient, sweet, and great at directing poses as needed. I would recommend her to all in need - 10/10.

Details: Wedding • 25 - 49 guests • Outdoors • Digital or online download

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I will answer and inform client on any questions. I will in detail, go through a typical session. We will book at date and agree on a location. Client will hold date with a 25% deposit with sent check or through PayPal. This reserves their time and mine as a commitment. I will send an email on questions that I have to customize the session. I will be in contact until we meet for the session and I am available at anytime with more questions or details needed by email or text. A photo contract will be sent to view and sign.

    I have been personally doing photography for 10 years, professionally for 4 years. I am the Newborn Photographer at Sentara Hospital. I am constantly learning new techniques, taking photography classes and involved in many photographer forums and groups. I am a freelance photographer for TSS Sports photography. I am also constantly following, and continuing education in new techniques from other pro photographers. I carry 2 to 3 different camera lenses on me at each shoot, high quality photos!
