Hello, I’m Mary!

I am located in like the smallest county in Central Illinois, Stark. I have two studio locations, Bradford and Wyoming. I have a thing for traveling, my fav, Colorado or anywhere out West! My kids are grown and I have the coolest grandson ever, Landen. To him I am Grammy. Love it!

I love the candid, unexpected moments in each session. The laughter and the joy on the kids faces, teens too! Can’t beat that! Each such an awesome experience. It truly is a joy to capture all the moments!

How I got here

Since 1987 there has been a joy and a passion to capture moments with all my clients. I have been so blessed to meet and know clients over the years that have become my friends.

I, Mary Trobaugh, opened my first studio in Bradford, Illinois in 2005. I was so blessed to buy the “doctors” house not only because of its beautiful architecture but because the doctors office would soon become my photography studio. Little did I know that at the time of buying the house in 2000.

In March of 2018, I opened my second studio in Wyoming, Illinois. With Wyoming and it’s growing downtown, that was the greatest plus for reaching an audience of new faces and business patrons. I have been made to feel so welcome by the residence of Wyoming and surrounding towns that come to visit our quaint downtown district.

My passion for photography was evident by others before I realized my gift for the eye of photography. I believe God gives us all a gift and I am so blessed this is mine.
