As a child, having my school photograph taken terrified me.
That experience came in handy when I became a school photographer. Aware of how nerve-racking it was for some kids I took the time to coach them, helping them relax so that we would both be happy with the result. However, often having 500 plus kids to photograph in one school day I soon learnt that school photography was more like operating a photo factory. Quantity won out over quality and it didn’t sit well with me.
I LOVE MY PHOTOS, and I ain't the only one! ♥♥♥ If you can get a booking with Mary, you are extremely lucky. You will not be disappointed.
Now that I photograph actors, performers and models for their portfolio I have the luxury of time to fully engage with my clients. Building relationships where we can discuss the whole feel and vibe of a shoot is vital. I love the exchange of ideas that lead to great results incorporating a variety of textures, backdrop choice and lighting in line with current Spotlight and agency website trends.
Mary has a real talent for making you feel at ease in front of the camera and getting the best pictures
Meeting a photographer in a new environment combined with performance nerves where no script or costume is present can be uncomfortable ….I get it! It is my MISSION to welcome, relax and guide my clients in to comfortable, effective poses and to engage with their energy to create the most striking. and authentic portraits.
My studio is located in central Cardiff, close to the museum. A headshots session involves me working both with studio lights indoors and using natural light in urban locations.
Mary was wonderful with my 5 year old daughter, she was put at ease immediately and at the end of her session she didn’t want to leave
