CITI BABIES by CITI COLLECTIVE

One business strategy of Citi Collective is to partner with outside service providers that act and feel like an extension of our company, not a third party. Mary quickly achieved this.

What we love about working with Mary, beyond her amazing end product, is how easy and seamless it is. We can spend minimal time describing our vision and she brings it to life quickly.

We don’t need to hire several different companies or a plethora of staff because Mary manages every minor detail. With ease she goes from vision to production and delivery and communicates proactively and consistently along the way.

Mary took the time to understand our company, our values and the feeling we want our brand to instill in our audience. However it’s her organized nature, superior communication and innate ability to naturally bring this all to life that makes her a valued asset to Citi Collective.

“If you're anything like me, you feel a bit overwhelmed at the idea of maternity photos. It can be such a personal, emotional time and I was hesitant to sign up for yet another moment to be the center of attention. Mary immediately erased all of those anxieties and was such a calming, warm presence. She put me at ease from the get-go by chit-chatting and sharing her own vulnerable experience in early motherhood. Not only did I receive a beautiful gallery of images, but I feel like I made a friend by the end of our session. If you're looking for artistic, graceful set of portraits by a wonderful human being - Mary's your gal.”

“Mary’s laugh and enthusiasm are infectious and inclusive, underlying who she is in real life. Our times with her are always authentic, spirited and soulful – somehow connecting with our children too! Her images are about our emotional connections and are polished, yet casual and always show us living in the moment. We joke that she has become our family photographer, having captured weddings, pregnancies, newborns, for us and our extended family. She’s a charmer and we love her!”

“I could write a novel about Mary and the way she has helped us document our baby girl’s first year. She’s just so lovely and talented. You realize the lovely part as soon as you meet her - she instantly makes you feel like you’ve known her forever. This is super helpful when you’re dealing with camera shy folks like my husband. You’re immediately comfortable around her and the images reflect that. And then there’s my infant daughter. She swaddled her and placed her hand on her little chest. This sent her off to dream land, making Mary a magician in addition to photographer. In all seriousness, you can’t ask for a better person to capture your special moments. She has created art for us that we’ll cherish for a lifetime.”
