About Me Page, Traverse City Family Portrait Photographer, Traverse City Family Lifestyle Photographer, Suttons Bay Family Photographer


My name is Mary Barghahn and I am a Portrait Photographer based out of Fort Myers, Florida and Traverse City, Michigan.  Here are few “Get to know me quick!” facts:

  1. I worked 7 years as a teacher and 18 years as an elementary principal. I am happily retired from education and am enjoying photography as a second career.
  2. Mary Barghahn Photography officially opened in August 2016.
  3. I married a wonderful man named Paul in 1994. We have a son and a daughter both in their early twenties.
  4. We moved to downtown Traverse City, MI in June 2019 & Fort Myers, FL in May 2020.  We divide our time between these two beautiful locations.
  5. We raise a crazy Shih Tzu named Pluto.
  6. All of the people in my family have red hair.  I do, my husband does and both our kids do.  We use a lot of 30 sunblock!
  7. I love creating beautiful photos that will be cherished for generations for my clients!
