hey, I'm mary

Born and Raised a Chicago girl.  I love the mitten but I still love some Lou Malnati’s pizza, living near the lake, and my Chicago Bears and my Cubby Bear blue.
   

Having my son changed it all. It changed the way I see the world and the way I wanted to live my life.

After graduating college where I played volleyball and the now hubbs played basketball.
 We moved to the mitten and and began to really live our lives and map out what we wanted. When we had our son it changed my eyes, I've always been one for pictures (taking pictures/being in pictures) but having him made me made me want more than just pictures for social (instagram facebook the yuck stuff).

I wanted pictures for when he grows up one day and leaves home I can hear his little voice, smell that newborn baby smell, and be flooded with memories I didnt even know I was holding on to. I wanted to look and pictures of my husband and have their honet, lovce and obession (yes I said obssesion theyre are obsessed with each other haha) to be captures forever not just for me but for our little guys as well. 

I had no idea at the time... 

how heavy that thought was waying on me. That there are so many of us in this world that not only want beautiful photographs but want photographs for us to feel what we were feeling in that moment that photo was taken. To remember out kids voices, remember how we felt on our wedding day, and remember how wonderful our life is in those ordianry moments. 

Then I hit this really Pivotal moment where i made the decision to start this buisness.

A business where I could use the degree I got in college in multi media bring my love of design and branding to the table as well and photographing those honest moments that are so close to my heart. 
An example being you know when you find an old polaroid of your grandparents, the photo is weathered, it's so pure. That THAT right there is what I want you to see!

so here we are...

if you're here for photography I'm here to capture your story, In a was that keeps memories alive but with a vibe and aesthetic that's an heirloom forever

If your here for branding

Im here to help that dream you've been writing on cocktail napkins while at brunch sippin on mimosas & that your dreaming about late at night come to life!
