Mary began a mentorship with Marvin Hall nearly two years ago. Since then, she has amped up her game and decided to open a studio as they worked well together.
She tells BTL, “I’m still learning more everyday. I enjoy the Creative Live seminars and recently attended Jason Atens’ Business Boot Camp.”
Seniors are Mary’s favorite to photograph! She loves making them feel like supermodels for a day, and the excitement they have when they see their photos. Boudoir sessions also rank high on her list of favorites as her clients become empowered by such intimate images. However, on the other side of the scale, landscapes aren’t her cup of tea.
As a big fan of Sue Bryce, Annie Liebowtz, and her business partner Marvin Hall, Mary’s passion was founded by a gift of a DSLR from her husband.
She says, “I took a community education class to learn how to use and haven’t looked back.”
When asked about her personal life, Mary tells us how hard it is to balance personal and business.
“If I’m not shooting, I’m editing. My husband has been supportive but would prefer I spend my home time with him rather than on the pic. I’ve been trying to make an effort to edit after he is sleeping, or when sports are on.” Mary reports.
