Member Monday Featuring Mary Hartt

Welcome back to another Member Monday, everyone!

This week we are talking to Maine based photographer, Mary Hartt. Her name is quite fitting because Mary definitely brings heart to every single image we see!

We wish we were paddling down this quiet still lake on a misty morning with her. Luckily this shot puts you right in the boat!

Here’s Mary to offer her thoughts on the moment behind this scene.
