Silicon Valley Photographer, Mary Okner of Mary Bea Photography will have your kids smiling before you can even say “cheese”!  She has the eye to beautifully capture you and your loved ones and an uncanny ability to document your most special family celebrations.  Mary has been praised over and over again for her easy going personality, ability to work with kids and make the whole family feel comfortable in front of the camera.


WOW – what an amazing photographer!!!!!  Mary captured amazing photos that we will cherish for a lifetime and she was able to catch the essence of my son’s personality.  Each mischievous look and toothless grins will bring a smile to our face for years to come.


Mary’s infectious enthusiasm and great eye lead to photo sessions that not only result in fabulous pictures, but a great time had by all!! Thank you, Mary for the best photos we have of our kids!







Mary has an artist’s eye and she took pains to capture all of the girls our daughter’s Birthday party both on and off of the ponies, in both color and black and white.  All of the photos were so gorgeous and flattering that I decided to give each parent copies of the photos of their child along with our thank you notes.  In return, I received several calls and emails remarking on her artistry of the photos and thanking me for such a lovely keepsake.  I can’t say enough about Mary’s talent and I would heartily recommend her services in capturing the essence of any special occasion.


Mary was great! She worked well with the kids and had lots of fun picture ideas at a scenic location!
