Mary Gardella Photography » Empowering Women Through Portraiture



We wear so many darn hats during our days, weeks, months, and years.   Most of the time those hats are piled up on top of each other and we’re constantly juggling them around, searching for our own perfect balance.  This is what we do.  This is what being an independent-minded woman is all about.  This is what being on a “gender spectrum” means.  We identify with each of our hats in a way that fits who we are and the role we want to play in life.  Each of these these roles are beautiful and wonderful and worthy to stand on their own.  You will define yourself the way you want, when you want.  It changes and varies according to our mood and desires.  Nobody said being a woman was easy.  But, it sure is fun! What is your mood? Whatever it is, let’s make you shine! See the light in these ladies and connect with me so we can bring it out in your portrait.
