Mary Vance 

Mary Vance is a lifestyle photographer and videographer located in the suburbs of Seattle, Wa, where she specializes in high school senior portraiture. Over the past decade, Mary Vance has earned a reputation for creating connections in single-subject images as well as crafting inclusive experiences for her senior clients, specifically for those who are neurodiverse or identify as a part of the LGBTQIA+ community. Mary merges her past life as a professional dancer with her ease of interaction with teenagers to create natural posing workflows to flatter all bodies. She also speaks Gen Z slang fluently. 

Mary has shared her approach to senior photography thru speaking engagements with Imaging USA, Squarespace, WPPI, the RangeFinder Lounge, The North City Studio, on podcasts, as a guest in masterminds, and at retreats. Her work and words have been seen in Professional Photographer magazine and Mary Vance has been educating in one form or another for over 20 years.

Title: An Authentic Approach to Senior Photography

Let Mary Vance show you how to set your business apart with lifestyle senior photography. Forego the Gen Z slang and latest TikTok trends and embrace an aligned approach to your senior sessions.
