Experience, vivacious personality and unique perspective for photography, writing and design.

Hi I’m Mary.

MMPHOTO, DESIGN, & MEDIA emerged from my love of and quest for the visual image that jumps out and tells a story.  

Whether it’s a single vacation photo to take a memory home, a promo postcard design with wording to capture the vibe of a place, or an extensive and in-depth marketing campaign for a project, I love to bring ideas to life visually.

No matter how large or small the project, I will listen carefully to understand what and how you want the project done, and handle both with passion and attention to details. You will get nothing less from me.

Come in and visit my photo gallery, past assignments, graphic design work, writing samples, pricing options, and testimonial pages. Or…just give me a call, text, or email.

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy.

Bringing Your Ideas to Life


Mary did a beautiful job of letting my great Dane, Millie, get comfortable around her and the camera before taking photographs that captured Millie's sweet personality.  Mary made the entire process so easy and comfortable, and the photographs reflect that we were both having fun.  I will treasure the photographs forever!

My husband and I had our pictures taken in the fall colors at our cabin. Mary made us feel very comfortable and she was so easy to work with. We received just the pictures that we were expecting, and we can’t wait to share them with family.

I love to photograph diverse subject matters. Each assignment, be it a portrait or gathering, an event or issue in the community, or an establishment or product you want photographed has a story to tell. All assignments excite me to capture that unique story, bring it to life in an image, and give it back to share and cherish.
