I'm Mary. For the past few years, I've documented motherhood. Becoming a mother is a journey that changes us, and challenges us, like nothing else. I believe these moments are important to preserve.
I've photographed inspiring birth stories filled with love and strength. Some of these births have happened quickly at home, some of them have been long labors of love that ended in a cesarean. All of them have been powerful and life changing.
These very intimate moments that I'm invited to, are always treated with respect and discretion. I believe that trust is one of the most important aspects of my work. I will work hard to preserve your birth space and will be a supportive presence on your birth day.
"She's amazing! You will absolutely cherish every photo and be so thankful you had Mary Humphrey as part of your birthing journey!"
"Gentle. Supportive. Respectful. Invisible at times. These are all ways I can describe the wonderful experience of Mary capturing the birth of my third baby."
I encourage all families that are interested to contact me. We can meet in person for a cup of coffee or tea, and answer any questions you might have.
