MY NAME IS MARY, AND I LIKE TO MAKE PRETTY THINGS.

I am obsessed with balancing my love for color with my OCD need for clean-cut design. Walking that line is a challenge I am slowly mastering by working with brands and bloggers to photograph themselves, their products, and their passion to make their brands as brilliant on screen and in print as it is in their heart. It's magical, and I'm honored to do it.

I'm also a wife and momma, living in Portland OR. A few things I'm enjoying lately are:

HULU MARATHONS WITH MY HUSBAND (WHILE EATING SOUR PATCH KIDS). ADVENTURES WITH MY DAUGHTER WHIMSY. CREATIVE ALL-NIGHTERS WITH MY FRIEND MICHELLE (WHILE EATING LITTLE DEBBIE ZEBRA CAKES). ACTING LIKE INSTAGRAM IS A LEGIT HOBBY. SEARCHING FREE CRAIGSLIST FOR VINTAGE COUCHES. CREATING MOMMA BEAR MAGAZINE.

A few cool things I have done:

GRADUATED HIGH SCHOOL AT 16. STUDIED IN NYC. SHOT WEDDINGS IN IRELAND AND HAWAII. DESIGNED A JEWELRY LINE. CREATED WEBSITES FOR SMALL BUSINESSES. INTERNED AT BLOGSHOP. TAUGHT EIGHT INTERNS OF MY OWN. HAD A RAINBOW-THEMED WEDDING, MARRYING MY DREAM MAN.  LIVED IN ASTORIA, OR FOR A YEAR, JUST BECAUSE. MADE A HUMAN NAMED WHIMSY BLISS BOYDEN. SAW FOUR RAINBOWS IN ONE SITTING.
