LOVE ON YOUR MOMS EVENT :: Maryland Portrait Photographer

LOVE ON YOUR MOMS

Session Event at MLP on April 11, 2015

I love my mom so much. She is the most amazing person and she has worked so hard over the years to help me become the person I am today. It’s the hardest job in the world – mommying. But, we all know it’s the most rewarding too.

Moms, I admire all you do to help shape our children to be the best they can be. You work tirelessly to make it all work – and then some. And I want to celebrate you with an event on April 11, 2015. Let’s create a beautiful portrait of you with your special somebody(s) – your kids or your mom or your partner or your family! That picture you’ve been dying to get, but haven’t because you’re always the one behind the camera. On this day, YOU ARE THE STAR!

YOUR $375 SESSION includes

• mini session with me at my Baltimore, MD natural light studio at the Clipper Mill
• Choose 4 of your favorite high resolution files
• Online sharing gallery of your event files
• 5×7 desk print of your favorite image

Moms, would you like to get a little pampered too? I can add a professional make-up artist to the mix. Let me know!

I’m offering four (4) sessions on this day beginning at 10:00 am.

Please email mary@marygardella.com to book your session.

Hope to see you soon!

Empowering Women Through Portraiture :: Maryland Portrait Photographer

BreastFest 2014 :: Empowerment Portrait Booth

It didn’t really hit me until after the BreastFest event, when I spent time editing/processing the images,  that I realized just how strong these survivors are. How empowered they must already be – they are surviving cancer!  How beautiful they are because they are fighters against disease that kills.  How precious life must feel to them in ways I can’t grasp.

Then, I looked at the daughters of these women and thought about the strength they had muster up while battling cancer in another way.  How the mother/daughter bond is stronger than ever.  Then I thought about the women who fought along side each other during treatments and the bonds they built to keep each other going.  The village prevails.

The irony – something really beautiful came from something so awful.

To the beautiful women who stepped inside my empowerment portrait booth at the festival, I’m so glad you are here.  And I’m grateful to have met you.  To the beautiful women still fighting the beast – you are my heroes and I commend you for all you do to live!
