Meet Mary Alice
I received my first camera in the fourth grade for Christmas and ever since then my voice has been strongest through photos. Every photo tells a story through my lens. After buying my first DSLR I was asked almost right away to photograph a wedding. Over the past 10 years I’ve photographed over 100 weddings. I used to live for the excitement, the love, the tears, and all the feels. But over the past few years I found more joy in photographing what comes after the wedding, the love that grows and matures–maternity sessions, newborn photos, family photos. The shift in my focus was a no brainer.
I used to think being empathetic was a weakness but have discovered it allows me to connect with clients on a whole new level. Building relationships with my clients, watching their children grow up, celebrating milestones and having fun for the holidays is what I enjoy the most. My clients feel more like friends and family, and I love the cuddles I get from all of their kids! As a photographer I cater to people who want their photos taken, not people who feel like they have to have their photos taken. I LOVE crafting, and set design, I love to hear my client’s wildest dreams and make them come true behind the camera. I strive to capture moments that will stand the test of time. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my son, Beckham, cooking and playing with our kitties.
