About Me

I am a Lifestyle & Wedding Photographer serving the Oklahoma City Metro Area since 2005.

I'm a mama to 5 beautiful humans. Wanna see a picture?

I'm an empath. I literally feel your joy & your pain. This is my nemesis. This is also what allows me to take the emotive pictures that hang on my clients walls. Capturing emotions is one of the most important parts of my work.

Raise your hand if you feel awkward posing in a studio! Most of my clients feel the same way, so I do away with all that and either capture you in your home or a gorgeous outdoor location where you & your family can relax and be yourselves while I create amazing portraits of your love and relationships - all while having fun!

I put my heart & soul into my photography and I firmly believe that photography is one of the greatest investments a family can make. For this reason, if you love my photography but price is an issue, contact me, I want to work with you!

Just in case you're curious:

  • I love Jesus
  • I love people 
  • I love kindness
  • I love laughter
  • My kids are the most amazing humans I know
  • My 8 yr old has special needs including ASD & ODD
  • My Great Pyrenees, Alaska is the most awesome dog you'll ever meet. For real.
  • Music, dark chocolate, plants, & sunshine make me happy
  • I have a coffee addiction
  • I'm fairly crunchy
  • Being outdoors in nature nourishes my soul
  • I love adventures
  • I love deep conversations
  • I believe there is nothing stronger than human connection 

Thank you for browsing through my website! Feel free to hop on over to my IG page for "sneak peeks" as well as getting to know me better through personal posts.

 

A special "thank you" to Paula Lynell for my head shot.

"Mary has the artistic eye to see the final product like no other during the photo shoot. She also has vivid, simple backdrop ideas which highlight the family-not the backdrop. Her ability to get natural smiles and capture the love between families is unmatched. Photography is an investment and there are no returns. Therefore, I would only trust Lifestyle Photography by Mary with the precious task of capturing my family in photo! I have utilized her expertise for over thirteen years!"
