family portrait Baltimore MD

You’re investing in more than just a session.  You’re investing in something very special – YOU & YOUR LIFE!  These are the meaningful moments that pass us in an instant. These are the images you never want to forget.  And then I want to help you figure out what to do with those beautiful portraits. I specialize in custom wall design and framing products, as well as, beautiful BOOKS that you just have to look at!

We offer a variety of options including individual sessions in our amazing natural light studio and on location.



DOCUMENTARY SESSIONS : Mary  will create a beautiful narrative of your family story with artistic images that capture your essence and true personalities in a comfortable setting. The family portrait sessions will be held in your home or at a location of your choice (even our natural light studio with surrounding grounds if you want!).

STUDIO MINI SESSIONS: Mary will document your family portraits in her Baltimore, MD natural light studio at the Clipper Mill & surrounding grounds.  Bright and beautiful studio space that creates a New York City loft feel.  The surrounding grounds are both rustic and natural.

DOCUMENTARY SESSION MEMBERSHIPS : These are wonderful if you want to capture your children’s growth over a period of time.  It’s mind-boggling how much they change.  You can’t save time in a bottle, but Mary will  help you save the moments you adore. And that’s really what it’s all about – savoring and enjoying the beautiful moments of your children the various stages in their life.


  • TWO SESSION: Celebrate this amazing time in your life with a session highlighting your beautiful belly and the miracle to follow.  This session includes one studio session and one location session of your choice.  Or you can document growth with the 2 sessions, as well.
  • THREE SESSION: Document your baby’s first year when so many amazing changes occur.  Sessions will be held approximately every 4 months (can include a beautiful belly session).  This membership gives you 2 documentary sessions at a location of your choice and 1 studio session.  This membership is also perfect for families with children of all ages who want their memories captured.

All session include the edited/processed digital files.  Please inquire for the session menu.



You will love yourTeen Portrait session experience with me.  My goal is to produce images that showcase your personality and interests in an artful way. I offer both In-studio and Location sessions.

Our 1200 square foot, natural light studio is located at the historic Clipper Mill in Baltimore MD.  Our NYC loft-style space and the grungy/hip surrounding grounds are ideal for teen portraits.  You get a little bit of everything.

If the studio is not what you’re looking for – then our location sessions are terrific.  We’ll work together to come up with a place that will bring out the best of you.


I am available for a select amount of Weddings per season.  A full-day package options as well as,  per hourly option (4-hour minimum) are available. Please email for more details!

I have been documenting life stories for close to 30 years.  My career started as a staff photojournalist for daily newspapers all over the the country.  In 2004, I built a studio based on my passion for capturing real life & real moments in a sophisticated & artful way.

I am in love with my clientele that I’ve built over the years. Many of them come back to me year after year to document their growing & changing lives. It is so amazing! I’ve been there when my clients have taken their first steps down the aisle together and when they’ve watched their children take their first steps.

I love your life, your moments, and your love!

boudoir session MD

elleMODERNE is a state of mind – the desire to unleash, to embrace, to challenge, and love yourself now. It is a celebration of all our attributes. It doesn’t matter how old we are or how curvy we are. We are a special, secret society of sisterhood. elleMODERNE empowers you through photography to help unleash everything you already are – beautiful, sophisticated, strong, fun & sexy!

Sometimes we misplace our femininity when we work long hours and care for our children. It’s okay to want to celebrate being a women in an artful and fun way. And to even step outside of ourselves a little and do something you normally wouldn’t do.

All sessions will be held in a safe and private environment at my natural light studio. Each session is custom designed to your personality & style. We’ll work together on ideas for the session.

Please contact: for more information and the session menu.


You are invited to my studio to view your images on the big screen!  We will have the opportunity to look over everything together and come up with products that fit your personality and needs.


We’re always coming up with session special ideas, too.  So, if you’re not ready yet we can certainly put you on our mailing list for all the MLP happenings!
