for pets and their families

custom photography

On warm summer afternoons, you'll find me playing tug-o-war with my dog, Blue. Like any dog parent, I have a phone full of snapshots of his silly expressions!  

I love all my photos of Blue, but I truly cherish the images that capture his personality and can be displayed in my home for years to come. Each day, I walk past these photos on my walls and I can't help but smile at the big, black dog that has brought so much joy into my life.

My passion for pet photography began in 2012 when I started photographing rescue dogs to help them find forever homes. Since then, I've worked with hundreds of dogs, capturing their personalities and creating cherished photographs for their families. 

My work has been featured in local and international pet photography publications and I continue to give back each week by helping rescue dogs find loving, forever homes.

From our first interaction, Mary was extremely easy to work with and thoughtful. She provided plenty of information that helped us plan and prepare for our photography session. On the day of the shoot, Mary was GREAT with the dogs and made it really easy for us to get all the shots she wanted. I was so impressed that we got our 'sneak peek' photos and gallery so quickly. We LOVE every photo Mary shared with us-- we are so happy to have beautiful portraits of our dogs. Our whole experience working with her was fantastic.

I am thrilled with the photos that Mary took of me and my cat. Mary brought treats and toys to the photo session to help my cat feel comfortable. As a result, we got many great shots to choose from. My favorite photo made a wonderful Christmas gift for my parents. 

The photos are vibrant and of the highest quality. Mary is a pleasure to work with. You will not be disappointed in her work.
