My sisters and I were recently reunited for the first time in almost a decade. Though three of the four of us are horribly uncomfortable in front of the camera, we decided we needed to be photographed together. Mary took so much time with us and was so patient with the silliness that had to ensue for us to loosen up. I may not have felt entirely easy about being photographed, but I am so glad I did it! The photos captured the four of us having fun together, and they're fantastic. They're silly, and they reflect 'Us' Cathy
"So what is there to say about my photos with Mary Bortmas.. well first off taking pictures with anyone else besides Mary would feel wrong...I'm pretty sure I wouldn't know how to smile because Mary keeps me laughing and smiling the whole time.. I'm super thankful we finally got snow and Mary agreed to drive out to middle of field to take my pictures.. Tony and i really appreciate you spending your afternoon with us even tho we could barely open our eyes. We love you Mary!"
OMGosh, Mary! Well, Grace got teary when she first noticed the ornament. Thank you! Then she opened it and went through everything slowly piece by piece. The tins! Way cool. The thumb drive that looks like a perfume bottle! The pictures are beyond what we expected! They all look so beautiful. Grace stopped and thanked me profusely for having you do them, letting her choose how to pose, and ordering what she wanted. They are fantastic. Thanks, again and again, Mary. You are blessed with this amazing talent. Thank you for sharing it with us. Hugs! ❤❤❤ Jody
