Hello my lovely,

Thank you so much for visiting my site! I am Mary, a fun-loving hippy spirit that loves to live my life to the fullest. I have a deep love for any type of creative expression (especially interpretive dance)! I drive with my windows down, blasting music that stirs my heart, and swaying my arms around to the beat. I find my greatest joy when I look in my rear view mirror and see my 2 year old daughter doing the same.

I am the daughter of the most incredible Latin woman I have ever known and she has given me the greatest gift by raising me to explore the world. I have a deep desire to uproot myself and go explore other cultures. The allure of knowing that their are endless stories unfolding and rarely ever told. I have a inner drive to tell those stories in the best way I know how and that is through my camera.

When I see something that captures my eye, it is almost as if time slows down and I create a sort of tunnel vision into what beautiful moment is unfolding. You know that moment when you dive into a pool of water? Time slows down, all sounds become muffled, and your body becomes weightless? Yes that feeling, I know you just felt it. It’s like time was forced into slow motion allowing the present moment to be experienced and seen. As your photographer, I will join you in that present moment, slow down time, and weave together your unique personal narrative.

As your photographer, I want you to have the images that tell your story and that evoke an emotion that rarely words can describe. These fleeting moments are unfolding everyday, let me come in to your world and capture them in a natural, tender, and nostalgic way.

I cannot wait to create with you!

Besos,

Mary xo
