10 Things You Might Not Know about Me

10.  “Mary, I don’t want you to freak out, but there’s a scorpion right behind you.” 

I turned around, and there it was.   Me, not a fan of any bugs except maybe ladybugs, face to face with a scorpion.  This was just a minor part of my adventure on my mission trip to Honduras, but it was definitely one of my most memorable.  

9.  After I eat something sweet, I have to follow it up with something salty.  Have to. So, as if it isn’t bad enough I just ate a big slice of chocolate cake, I have to wash it down with some pretzels.  It just tastes better that way.

8.  My daughter’s name is my middle name.  And it’s the only name my husband and I could agree on when choosing baby names.

7.  I really love house plants, but I’m terrible at keeping them alive.  It’s a curse.  

6.  I used to not be a dog person.  I never grew up with a dog, and to be quite honest, I had some not so good experiences with dogs in the past. (Like my husband’s old dog chewing up my good shoe).  Then I met (and fell in love with) Roxi, my sister-in-law’s dog, and she converted me to a full on dog loving person who now owns her own little puppy.  

5.  I don’t like seafood.  It’s weird, I know, and I really, really wish I liked it because it’s so healthy. 

4.  I bought my first professional camera in 2010 and took a lot of really sweet photos of my nieces and nephews but it wasn’t until several years later that I really learned how to use it.  

3.  I have two siblings, and I’m the youngest.  I guess you could say we all dream big because my sister is a writer and my brother in an entrepreneur. 

2. Before photography, I was an English teacher for ten years.  

1. Before I was Mary Wiet Photography, my business name was Harper & Sawyer Photography. When I started my business in 2017, I had just left teaching and wanted a name that spoke to my love of literature and that chapter in my life and connect it to the new chapter I was starting. After a lot of thought and five years in the business, I felt like the name wasn’t representing who I am now and where I want to go with my business, so I decided to rebrand and change my business name.
