About Mary Waterflow’s Studio
I didn’t always know I wanted to become a photographer, but I always wanted my work to be related to kids and some kind of art… So as my career of an abstract paintings artist failed by the time I was 17, I turned to another joy. My passion for photography started after my husband gifted me my first DSLR camera for Christmas one year and I immediately became excited about every little nuance in a professional photographer’s routine. Eventually, I began taking classes and reading any tutorial I could get my hands on. I was in photography love. Then in the spring of 2013, I had my own little baby. I have been photographing every little move he has made (my husband thinks I’m crazy!) and I feel like I’ve become an even better photographer since having my own child. I know what I want in a picture as a parent and I know what I want in a picture as an artist.
Just to mention as a nota bene, I actually have an undergraduate degree in Psychology with a focus in Child Development & a masters degree in Early Childhood Education. While in college, I was a nanny for two different families. So as you can probably tell, I really love children! This makes for a very fun and productive photosession for everyone.

Even before having a baby I always dreamt of collecting as many photos of him or her, as possible. Now, with Mary’s help I was able to accumulate a huge amount of my sweet daughter’s photos!Karen
Immediately after having a baby I was determined to do a professional photoshoot for my little twins. My good friend Janette referred me to this photographer and eventually, the album came out great!Alison
I’ve always wanted to capture my pregnancy on film because it is such a sweet period in life and it lasts for such a short time! This was made possible thanks to Mary the Photographer, who did awesome photos.Harriet
