Meet your favorite family photographer

Photography started for me at a very young age. As a child I was diagnosed with dyslexia and school was not always easy for me, but found the visual medium of photography and it suited me just right!!

Plus, it allows me to interact and play with kids and families, which has always made my heart sing. I am super excited to share my skills with you and your family, and capture your special moments forever!

a few of my favorite things:

• My family, above all. My husband and 3 children are my life!
• Good food and good wine, cause why not!
• Coffee, but only decaf! I know, wild right?
• Growing up on the East coast and now being a California       
    transplant, the beach is a must!

YOUR THINK-OUTSIDE-THE-BOX PHOTOGRAPHER

I do things a little
different around here

With over 10 years of experience, I can confidently say I
have mastered the art of family photography. The biggest
part of it I would say is that I LOVE KIDS. Your kids, my kids,
all of the children, I love them all!

It’s so important for me that everyone is naturally relaxed
and in their element, so I do my best to build a relationship
with you and your littles before the big day.

Let’s DOCUMENT IT

The values I hold near to my heart

family

For as long as I can remember spending time with my people,
my family has been what I love to do. Whether it was holiday
gatherings or game nights it’s what has always brought me the
most joy and fostering those values and making those memories
with my own family has been a dream come true!

authenticity

Sometimes I fear I may be authentic to a fault because I am one of
those people that at times can forget to filter themselves and walk
away from a conversation feeling like I’ve stuck my foot in my mouth.
That being said I am growing to embrace that side of myself and
using this part of my personality to my advantage in documenting
the world as I see it, to observe and capture the story of your family
as well as my own because the moments are flying by.

giving back

Being able to give back is something that I hold so dearly to my
heart and was exemplified so beautifully for me growing up by my
Mom who was one the most generous human beings I’ve ever
known. As a result I donate both time and money to causes within
the community and beyond that resonate with me. I am happy to
share more details with you or to discuss an opportunity you may
have for me to get involved with.

Lindsey B. SAYS:

I will recommend her over and over!

This review is long overdue. I have used Mary 3 times now and every time she has done an amazing job. From the first time I met her I could tell she was easy to work with and would make my kids feel comfortable. She has such a warm and friendly personality. She is super patient and silly with the kids while trying to get a good picture and in my case has always succeeded. She always captures beautiful pictures and her turn around time to get your images is super impressive. 

Mary Bea photography did an excellent job of taking pictures at our annual Rock Band event for our music school. She managed to achieve our goal of capturing 60 "in the moment" portraits of our students as they performed on stage. Not an easy task as the students move around the stage because you have to be careful not to block the audience or hinder the performers, but somehow she managed with grace. I will definitely be using her service for future events.

Nicole P. SAYS:

Mary is the best photographer I've ever worked with

She recently took our son's newborn photos which included a family photo shoot as well and the photos turned out better than I could have hoped. She was amazing not only with our newborn and placing him in different positions but also with our 18 month old and interacting with her. The best was when my newborn was starting to melt down Mary sat my toddler down and read her a book. I'll continue to use Mary as our family photographer and highly recommend her to anyone else looking for quality photos.

NEXT TESTIMONIAL

I would absolutely recommend Mary Bea Photography to families in the Bay Area who are looking to do something out of the ordinary.

Not only is Mary a spunky, energetic, and genuine human, but she is an exceptional photographer who helps make the “awkward camera shyness” fade away. My Christmas cards always get great feedback, asking how I was able to get such fun and great quality photos under water and my answer is always Mary!!

Michael P. SAYS:

Mary made us feel completely comfortable as if she wasn't even there while taking the photos.

Mary recently took our newborn/family photos. She was able to really capture this special time in our lives and all of the chaos that goes with it.  The pictures turned out fantastic, I couldn't be happier with how they turned out! I'd recommend Mary to anyone looking for a photographer that takes their time to get to know her subjects, that makes you feel comfortable, that is great with children of all ages, and takes great quality photos. We'll definitely be using her again!
