Hi, I’m Mary Catherine (but everyone calls me MC!) I live in Atlanta with my husband, five-month-old baby girl and Goldendoodle. I grew up in Birmingham and studied Apparel Design at The University of Alabama. Throughout my fashion studies and career, I found what most excited me were the photoshoots post design. I lived for this part of the process!
I’ve been photographing bloggers and fashion brands, families, children and portraits for eight years now. There is nothing better than seeing the joy and beauty of a special moment captured through the lens. I love creating forever keepsakes for clients (most of whom have become dear friends).
