Virginia Girl, Texas World

Hi! My name’s Mary, and I’m the girl behind the lens of Lallier Love Photography. On this page, you’ll find a little bit about me and why I do what I do. If you’re looking to follow Lallier Love on social media, these buttons will take you where you need to go!


Someone recently bought me a shirt that says “A Virginia girl in a Texas world,” and I find that pretty much sums up my life right now. I’m a Virginian, used to the Blue Ridge Mountains and Shenandoah Valley*, but my life changed pretty drastically last year when my husband was offered his dream job here in Dallas. So we packed our bags, kissed our family, jumped in the car, and headed to the Lone Star State.

Before moving to Texas I worked as a photographer in Virginia, mostly capturing precious moments for families with small children, and I loved every minute of it. Now I have the chance to add to my adventure of discovering Texas life by meeting new people and capturing their special moments in this big ol’ new land.

Photography is my passion. It’s about more than taking a picture—it’s about capturing a moment that you’ll never get back. Maybe it’s the expression your toddler makes when she’s excited or maybe it’s sharing a laugh with your sweetheart—those are the moments you’ll want to look back on and remember. Those are the moments you’ll wish you’d never forget—and if you capture those precious moments now, you won’t have to worry about forgetting them later. You’ll have a priceless treasure reminding you of how great life really was in that beautiful instant. I can’t wait to help you capture your precious moments.

*If you’ve never been there, consider visiting. Seriously. It’s gorgeous and you’ll never want to leave.
