Thanks for visiting!

Mary Carol Fitzgerald Photography

My first name is Mary Carol… I also go by MC

I am a lifestyle + event photographer — specialist in visual branding + content creation for influential entrepreneurs + corporate profiles. 

My work depicts portraits + lifestyle design in settings cohesive to brands — offering insightful stories about your style of life.

If you are looking for a photographer that specializes as both a high-level fine artist and is also customer service oriented — you’ve come to the right place!

As a result of my work, people + their identities are authentically seen in ways that deeply & directly connect with other humans. 

My clients experience up-leveled local and global recognition, enhanced credibility, and visibility that elevates personal & corporate brand awareness. 

In a more social scene, I (and my team) cover an array of luxury, athletic & artist related events.

With my attention to details, graceful presence and the ability to naturally engage with people — I’ve got you covered!

I’m personable and fun to work with while being able to quickly and easily manage large groups, shoot in a variety of lighting, locations and have a knack for helping people relax in front of the camera. 

As an avid seeker of beauty, wanderlust + mindfulness, I aim to inspire + motivate my audience in sharing the experience of what + who helps to keep me going on my creative journey, personally + professionally

Finding someone you can trust, that can help you develop your vision and be intuitively understood — is rare...and priceless. 

I’m here to listen, understand and to help you connect the dots of your needs.

Through the art of collaboration, together we will transform the idea of what’s in your mind into meaningful imagery before our very eyes. 

I want to help YOU create more ease and flow in your life + business. 

I offer a satisfying customer service experience that comes with my sparkling personality + quality talent-filled results you won’t find anywhere else! 

My mission is to enhance your overall experience from start to finish — providing you with stellar results — all the while putting you at peace throughout the process.

With over 30 years experience of looking through the lens + over a decade of working in the real estate industry, I’m living out my dream as a professional photographer — traveling, creating + connecting on a daily basis, always on the go, doing what I love, living a life of love….and most of all — having fun. 

I bring this energetic nature to my work providing a safe place for people to confide in me — with the utmost confidence knowing I can make their visions happen.

Are YOU ready to get started?

With Much Love, Light & Blessings


Mary Carol

The world is ours to embrace—may we live with excitement and passion, love with the wholeness of our hearts and from the depths of our souls while inspiring to create a difference for the good of all.
