Mary (Owner/Photographer)
Mary has owned and operated Mary Cornelison Photography for over 35 years.  Her creativity stems
from her love for the arts, including theatre arts.  Mary was awarded a Master of Photography
degree in New Orleans in January of 2012 by the Professional Photographers of America
Association.  This is not a typical "degree" as we are all used to hearing.  This degree must be
earned through superior photographic competence which is decided by a variety of channels and is
awarded through photographic competition, advanced education, and service to the profession. An
interesting fact about her is she sang professionally at the age of 15 in San Diego and is also an
opera singer.

Annie (Receptionist/Mary's Assistant)
Annie is Mary and Ralph's daughter.  She has grown up with a love for photography but her main
interest is film.  She will be receiving her Masters Degree from Sacramento State in Film Studies &
Theatre Arts.

Ralph (Owner/Asst. Photographer/Technician/Office Asst.)
Ralph has been Mary's husband for over 30 years.  He graduated from Brook's Institute in Santa
Barbara with a Bachelor's Degree in Photography. He now teaches 2nd grade during the week.

Linda (Make-up Artist)
Linda has been Mary's make-up artist for about 23 years.  She modeled in New York for many years
and also has her Esthetician license.  She has also worked for Dr. Zimmerman, a plastic surgeon, as
his make-up artist for burned patients.
