About Me

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

I've been married for 24 years to Matt, a rad dude that I met in Mexico. It's a long, kinda weird, but great love story. He still gives me goosebumps.

I'm also 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.

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 incase 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 dogs are AWESOME - 14 yr old Miniature Yorkie named Mia, and a 5 yr old Great Pyrenees named Alaska
  • 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 Caitlin Elizabeth Photo 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!"
