Mary is the absolute sweetest and such an amazing person! Not only has she volunteered her amazing time and been there to photograph the city of largo car show for me, and KILLED it must I say, she was one of my wedding photographers. Every time I have been around Mary she is filled with energy and always so positive. When I found out she would be photographing my wedding I was so happy. She killed it and made the most special day of my life that much better! She takes time to get to know you, makes sure you are 100% with everything and goes out of her way to do anything she possibly could. She gets every single detail and puts herself in your shoes and imagines what you would

want from your special day. I would 100% recommend Mary to do your wedding, events, portraits, you name it! Seriously do yourself a favor and book Mary, you would not regret it one bit.

Mary is fun and personable and is more than willing to help. I used her for a promotional shoot and sent her multiple pictures of outfit ideas. she helped pick out the perfect outfit and alleviated the stress. I will be using her for a maternity shoot and my wedding for sure!

Mary is an amazing photographer. She really takes her time & makes the whole experience so much fun & comfortable. She treats everyone of her clients as if they are a friend, it is so easy to be able to sit in front of her camera! I myself am a little awkward when it comes to having someone take my photos but Mary has definitely made me feel the most comfortable & I’ve let my insecurities disappear since I started working with her! The set-ups for every photo shoot she does are beautiful, she never misses!! She offers many different types of shoots so it’s great because she is so versatile. I love doing photoshoots with her, from taking pics of my daughter to my family to just me she is always on point! The editing is flawless, she does care about all the small details & I love that about her. Besides being her client, we have

built a relationship where we now work together at the same studio location, I am so grateful to be a part of this amazing business journey with her. I highly recommend Frances Design Photography!!

Mary is so fun to work with! Not only does she own the camera, she makes you feel comfortable on the other side too. Having fun and trying different ideas, anything to get "that shot". Look out, when she's in the groove and doing her thing, she WILL get the one you love most! It was great working with her and would definitely do it again, no questions asked.

Stacey Hubbard Cossey

Mary is so awesome!! I met her when she was my daughter’s 3 year old preschool teacher. Fast forward ten years later and we were fortunate enough to have her take my daughter’s 13th birthday pictures. Every detail in the pictures captures my daughter’s personality. We had the best time! Mary is so fun and has such a gift! I’m so thankful to have such beautiful pictures to celebrate my daughters milestone birthday! I look forward to working with Mary again!

Amazing! Toddler twins are not easy to get even one good picture of but Mary worked her magic and got a ton of cute ones e10/10

I did a promo shoot with Mary and she was so easy to work with and so kind! I enjoyed the session a lot and she was great with making me feel comfortable and confident rI had so much fun and we laughed and talked through the entire shoot. I appreciated how up front she is about where she is on edits (how many galleries she's working on that are in front of our shoot), she was very good about her timeliness for the gallery reveal, and overall I'm very happy with the photos and with my experience! I look forward to working

with Mary again (hopefully soon!) and do very much recommend her r

Mary encompasses everything we ever could’ve asked for in a photographer. She is passionate, patient, and professional. My fiancé had her graduate school photos taken by Frances Design Photography and Mary went above and beyond. She took my fiancés vision and brought it to life. Mary incorporated us both into this experience making it beyond memorable and so much fun. From start to finish, the process was seamless and effortless. We have built a lasting relationship with Frances Design Photography and we can’t wait till our next photo shoot. Thank you for sharing your talent with the world, Mary, passion like yours can’t be taught.

As someone who is a little shy, doing something like this seemed a little daunting. Mary made me feel so comfortable, and we had so much fun! She played music, and made the whole session so fun.

Book her (while you can). She’s amazing!!

Melinda Smith

We had a great photoshoot with our family. She is very good with kids and was able to get our toddler to sit still and even smile! Highly recommend.


Brianna Zimmer

Mary took photos at a surprise party I hosted. It was such a relief to not have to worry about taking pictures and just enjoy the party. Mary knew exactly what to do and handled everything without much direction. Before she left she made sure I was happy with everything. The photos turned out beautiful and captured the joy of the occasion perfectly. I couldn’t be more pleased and will use her services again in the future.

Ashley Fernandez 

What an absolute pleasure! We did Christmas minis and we were so pleased with our experience. She even allowed us to bring our own special touches. She made us feel completely comfortable, her and her assistants energy was terrific. Even offering us delicious cookies which our son devoured! She turned our photos around in one day!!! The dedication is real. The poses and moments she captured were so sweet. I can’t wait to share them with family and friends.

She is all about angles and being natural and her Energy is everything! I look forward to booking many more times! And I 110% recommended her.

Yoshi Kyrie

We are a vegan family and wanted to incorporate a lot of natural elements into our pictures. I reached out to Mary and she was so easy to work with as far as the props were exactly what we wanted. Also having smaller kids and allowing us to bring our own props and our golden retriever puppy! She worked so well with the toddlers and made our dreams turn into a reality when viewing our photos. I had tears in my eyes I was just so happy to have found someone to make us as a whole feel comfortable and get those forever moments in pictures. I would highly recommend Frances Design Photography to anyone who truly wants a magical experience and forever memories in your photos.

My solo photoshoot with Mary was wonderful! She picked a hidden gem of a location, had awesome prop ideas and cool poses. She was professional and fun and I felt comfortable and relaxed during the entire photoshoot. The finished product is a breathtaking gallery of unique and personalized photos. Thanks Frances Design Photography for capturing a beauty in me that I didn’t know I had 💕

Amy Hanna

When we finished, I was nervous. It was a pricey gift from my husband to me for Christmas. I really wanted a nice family photo on the beach. Even after receiving a few preview pictures, I was still nervous not knowing if we would get a picture that I was happy with. However...I just got to view our photos and I'm in love with Mary's fun style. I couldn't be happier with our pictures and the way each personality was captured. Thank you SO much for doing a great job!
