"Mary was open to suggestions and very willing to entertain our ideas, however she added her own
artistic eye, mind and passion for photography to make these pictures special."
Mary was introduced to us by her sister Kelly who is a dear friend to us. We were told that photography was her hobby and she was still polishing the skills to make this hobby her profession. Both sisters arrived on the day and time they were expected at our Bear Hollow Bed and Breakfast. The weather was not cooperating when they pulled in the driveway so Mary was could only take a few pictures outside and decided to stay overnight hoping for better exposure and light the next day. Mary had all the equipment, lenses, lighting and cameras you would expect from a pro. She was doing us a favor at no charge yet she handled herself professionally as if we had hired her. Mary was open to suggestions and very willing to entertain our ideas, however she added her own artistic eye, mind and passion for photography to make these pictures special.
Mary delivered the edited shots exceptionally fast to us via email, considering our need of the pictures to be used on our under construction website at that time.

"I have never seen her lose her cool under pressure and nor under multifaceted, numerous deadlines."
I am very aware and appreciative of individuals who can turn artwork effectively and quickly and produce quality materials. However, most positions require these skills and more to make projects integrate seamlessly. Mary exceeded for the following reasons:
1) Hardworking, dedicated work ethic
2) Professionalism in dealing with multiple departments, committees, and staff requirements
3) Solid experience in photography, graphic arts, web design, visual media, print and online catalogs, and promotional materials.
I have never seen her lose her cool under pressure and nor under multifaceted, numerous deadlines. She always continues to steam ahead and complete complex projects with a smile.

"I will treasure the photographs forever!"
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!

"Mary made us feel very comfortable and she was so easy to work
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.
