Award Winning Photographer


About Mary Katlin : The Photographer


I have been a portrait photographer for nearly ten years. Photographing newborns, children, families, and seniors. I am a certified professional photographer, who is also an active member of the PPA (Professional Photographers of America) community. I treat my photography as an art, and my camera as a tool, to capture your precious stories. It may be my art, but it’s your life chapters I’m documenting, to preserve for a lifetime.

My style is simple, clean, and timeless....Let me preserve your memories, so that you can treasure them forever.


“Photography is the story, I fail to put into words.”
