Blue Hill Maine Portrait Special

Maine is my favorite place in the world to photograph my family.  There is something about the air and light there.  Something about the pace of things.

This summer I’d love to also photograph your family.  Please send me an email mary@marymchenry.com for more info!

Hope Town Wedding

Caitlin and Otis had their wedding on Hope Town, Elbow Cay in the Bahamas last fall. It was a wonderful, musical, fun-filled celebration. I loved the Hope Town choir singing the song “Wildflower” by Tom Petty as Caitlin walked down the aisle. I loved the cool coral walk wall they showed me as a great place for photos. I loved her friend who got up and sang with the band. It was a great wedding. 🙂

Brooklyn Family Photography

I spent the morning with the fabulous Ruben family a little while ago in Brooklyn, NY.  They got the kids ready, played around in Prospect Park and scooted home in time for naps.  It’s pretty standard stuff but in a year or two it will be a routine that lives in the past, so I was happy to document this sweet time in their life. Get dressed, parks, breastfeeding on the go, and getting back home for the nap before any meltdowns.  It doesn’t last as long as it seems it will -and it is sweeter than you may realize in the moment.

Thanks so much for having me over guys!

Jesse and Joey Tie the Knot!

Two talented, beautiful, kind, and very funny men got married in what could best be called -a total wedding bash.  The celebration took place in Jesse’s parent’s lovely home in Coral Gables, FLA.  The place was dripping with orchids, live oak moss, ferns and air plants.  Everyone looked gorgeous, it was a million degrees out, and they partied into the wee hours.  There was so much laughter and plenty of happy tears.  It was such fun to photograph and I was so honored to be there.  Enjoy….!

Recent Work with ALS, SMA and Heart Disease Patients

In March, I traveled throughout California to photograph people living with ALS, SMA (spinal muscular atrophy) and heart disease.  I was hired for this project by Cytokinetics -a company that develops therapies for people living with these diseases*. Cytokinetics plans to create huge posters for display in the company headquarters.  They hope the images and words will inspire their employees and connect them to the people they are working to help.

It was personally so inspiring and very uplifting to meet and photograph these wonderful people.  It was a critical reminder that life is short- so live it well, stay present and love deeply!

*The people I photographed don’t use any of Cytokinetics therapies.  The company knew of them through talks they have given or other avenues where they have shared their stories as a way to inspire or guide other people living with their disease.
