"Happiness isn't what you find at the end of the road.

It's right here, right now."

about me
Hello! It's great to meet you!
I'm Mary - wife, mom, grandma ❤️, friend, farmer, and always a photographer.  I'm a "city girl" transplanted to our farm in Northeast Iowa, where I quickly learned to drive a tractor, combine, and whatever else needed to be driven! Farming fuels my love of the outdoors and gives me a chance to enjoy all of the beauty that comes with each season.  I love to spend my free-time enjoying my fun-loving family, laughing with my great friends, and lending a hand in my community.  Osage Iowa is a beautiful place to enjoy, explore, and call home.

My Story

PW090619-3.jpg
PW090619-4.jpg

Capturing  happiness is more than just capturing smiles, it's capturing being together! It's the little glances, the eye rolls, the hip-check to move over, the sweeping of bangs, the "I don't know what to do with my hands" look, the group hugs, or my favorite.....the sweetest kiss on the forehead.  It's capturing a senior's picture with their mom (or whomever comes with on their shoot).  It's the grandparents and grandkids all snuggled together.  It's the mom's and dad's that get to have just a moment with each other.  It's the cousin's picture that always makes everyone laugh!  It's your family, your day, your special time to cherish!  Capturing these moments brings me a lot of happiness, and I plan to share that happiness with you!

I'm excited to hear about your special occasion, celebration, or event you would like to capture! Together we can create a plan and capture your happiness!!

 

I can't wait to hear from you!

Homestead

After living on a farm for 30 years, I appreciate the memories that live in the nooks and crannies of a homestead. I aim to capture God's handywork and your memories for generations to cherish.

How It Works

01

Details

I will send you a quick questionnaire to personalize your session and make your day a breeze.  We'll choose a time and place to take the photos and make a backup plan in case of weather. The farmer in me is used to working with Mother Nature!

02

Information

Next, I'll provide some information on how to prepare for your session, what to bring with you, and outfit tips. Now comes the best part…taking your photos! I’ll bring the camera, you bring your smiles. Couldn’t be easier!

03

Galleries

I’ll edit your photos and send you a link to your gallery, where you can view, share, download, and easily print your images. Share your photos on social media, print them for an album, or make a large canvas to hang over the fireplace! I love to see how my clients enjoy their memories.
