about Mary

I believe photographs, after having a roof over our head, food in our bellies, clothes to keep us warm and loved ones around us are the most important possession anyone can have.  It doesn't matter what kind of car we drive, how big our house is or the brand of clothing we wear... photographs are the only objects that we really hold close to our hearts.  We need photographs to help us remember moments and people we love so much.  I can stare at pictures of my grandparents for days and feel the happiness I felt when I was with them and feel the love that is still in my heart.  As humans we need photographs, no matter who we are in this world.  Do yourself a favor and take lots of pictures but please live in the moment - don't obsess with making the perfect photograph and don't stay behind the camera - just take it quick and enjoy the moment (and please, print some!!).  Let me take the perfect photographs for you :) 

- Mary



My name is Mary. I am a natural light on location photographer specializing Simplified Newborn Photography and Family Documentary photography.  I am based out of the lakes region of New Hampshire.  


Why hire me?

I want you to hire me because you fell in love with my portfolio and it feels right!  Like what you see in my portfolio? Let me create a series of photographs for you.  Also, I am proud to have a BFA in photography from New Hampshire Institute of Art and I started Mary White Photography in June of 2006!


What is my style is all about?

As natural as possible.  I consider myself a minimalist photographer. Please see my portfolio to get a feel for my style!


Who do I photograph?

I specialize in lifestyle newborn photography and documentary family photography. I no longer offer family or children's portrait sessions so that I may concentrate on more intimate sessions with just your brand new little one and real moments in your family documentary session. 


Where do I photograph?

I photograph exclusively on location. 

Since I am a NH based photographer. I typically photograph in the lakes region and southern NH area but am willing to travel! I feel most comfortable in a rural setting and do not travel near Boston and surrounding towns/cities.


Who am I?

I was born and raised here in New Hampshire.  I love the outdoors, go camping as often as possible, am a part of a large loving family, am happily married, a mommy to a sweet little boy, an adored human to three adorable animals, and I have a chocolate addiction.  I love to read, rearrange furniture and my favorite time of day is the few hours before dusk.  

See you soon!
