Hi, I'm Mary, a documentary + lifestyle photographer and corporate event planner located in Madison, Alabama. My husband, Brad, and I have two boys, a teenager (Landan) and a threenager (Jack). Life with them is interesting, for sure!

Since my son Jack's extremely premature birth nearly four years ago, I've been passionate about picking up my camera to find and photograph the beauty in each day - even the terrible, sad and incredibly boring ones. Through the photos I've taken, I've not only frozen moments in time to last forever for myself and my family, but I've formed a deeper appreciation for the ordinary moments of everyday life and the people and places in it.
