Carroll Photos Lake Iroquois         MARY CLAIRE CARROLL, Photographer

Welcome to Carroll Photos


Hi, I am Mary Claire Carroll of Carroll Photos, a portrait studio located in Richmond, a beautiful Vermont village just southeast of Burlington.

Within my studio, at your business, your family home, or at some lovely Vermont location, I  work with you to create portraits that help tell your story. I love photographing people, and I have a gift of putting people at ease in front of the camera. I think my approach fosters confidence and is energizing, both key factors in developing strong, dynamic photographs.

If it is time for a new portrait, I would love to work with you. Please contact me.

Best,
Mary Claire signature

"A good friend gave us a gift certificate for Mary Claire's services for our first-ever family photo shoot. Now I understand why families do this! It's worthwhile to work with a professional because the children are more cooperative and the photographs' qualities of light, setting and focus are superior. Mary Claire was easy to have in our home and she was receptive to our ideas."

"Mary Claire is the only photographer who can make me relax and look natural in front of the camera. Not only that... she makes me look good."

"One of my favorite aspects of the portrait session was how much she kept me laughing. I didn't feel as though I had to force a smile (and when I was getting smile fatigue she could tell immediately.) We went through such a variety of shots, posing with my easel or desk, that I ended up with a really nice range to choose from, from glamour shot to working shot. I especially appreciated her attention to detail in fine-tuning and selecting only the most flattering images. As someone who doesn't generally enjoy portraits of herself, these are refreshing to own. I definitely recommend taking control of your own image and Mary Claire will be a wonderful partner in that pursuit."
