I'm Mary, a passionate portrait photographer based in Detroit, MI. I take pride in cultivating a timeless, authentic, and evocative documentary photography style. With a keen eye for capturing genuine moments and an unwavering commitment to preserving the essence of every narrative, I craft images that are emotive, vivid, and resonate with the true spirit of the individuals I have the privilege of photographing.

At the young age of 14, I embarked on a journey fueled by sheer determination and a Craigslist camera – a relic that marked the inception of my love affair with photography. My parents, perhaps hesitantly, granted my wish, setting the stage for what would become a lifelong passion.

I am more than just a photographer; I am also a Student Nurse. Nursing, to me, is a profound commitment to the holistic well-being of individuals – a dedication encompassing their physical, mental, and social dimensions. Similarly, my photography isn't confined to the act of "taking pictures." I am a storyteller, an artist capturing the essence of real and raw emotions. Studying people – their emotions, posture, and style – I discovered that portraits are more than images; they are narratives that unfold in the frame. The art lies in creating images that tell stories – stories that allow individuals to relive memories and emotions, an intimate and personal journey frozen in time. Crafting physical reminders of these stories for my clients is not just a service; it's an honor.

In both nursing and photography, my purpose is clear – to care for others and to tell stories that endure. My journey is one of passion, drive, and an unwavering commitment to capturing the beauty of life's fleeting moments. Join me in crafting transformative moments, where the fusion of science and art creates lasting stories that uplift and inspire.
