Since you are on this page, you are one step closer to becoming a client (and friend).  Let me be the first to say:  Welcome! I am so happy you are here.

Twenty years ago, I arrived in the PNW and just a few short years ago moved to the Central Cascades. In my heart, this little spot in the Cascades has been home forever.  Whether I’m stretched out under the Milky Way on a summer evening, having my daily coffee at the historic Cle Elum Bakery, or at the rodeo with family, I live for this American West.

 Savoring memories is my part of my heritage. I am blessed to have photographs of my ancestors dating back to the mid-1800s. After losing my mother, these printed photographs are the keepsakes I treasure most. She documented our life and legacy and cultivated my love of history and photography for many years. Her portraits take me back in time for a short, sweet, moment; they are a gift I have learned to appreciate so much.

 Knowing that photography is an incredibly powerful story telling tool, I will honor you while documenting the spirit of who you are as an individual, family, or couple. From the first stages of planning your session to the details of the best way to display your images in your home, we will collaborate to ensure your legacy is beautifully represented. Surrounded by natural beauty, we are fortunate to have endless options to explore. Together we will select the right location to photograph and document your special moments and put those tangible memories in the form of archivable artwork for you and those you love.

It was so nice of you stop by.  I look forward to getting to know you.  For a friendly chat about creating a portrait with Mary, call 509-304-4020 today.
