Mary is a friend and fellow photographer who was the first willing participant in my water series, Flow. (She's incredibly talented; you can see her work here.) We've photographed together several times. There is definitely an ease to the sessions with her. (I love photographing the same people multiple times; you're able to connect on another level.) And although I'm literally twice her age, I have never felt the difference. I really enjoy her company; she's one of the most interesting people I know, and she has a genuine heart of gold.
