About Merry - MJPlocki Photography

I have always loved nature and discovered photography is the best way to me to share how I feel about the world around and within us. I was born and raised in Michigan and from and early age was brought up to appreciate and respect people and the outdoors. I moved to the Washington, DC area to pursue a career in finance and an MBA while continuing to explore and make photos whenever I could.

Photography is now my full-time avocation and vocation. I live with my husband, two children and my Danish Swedish Farmdog, Leif.  I am currently working to earn my Master Photographers Certification through Montgomery College in Rockville, Maryland.   In 2017 I completed a lifelong dream and hiked the length of the Appalachian Trail with Leif joining me for the entire trip. In 2019 my teenage daughter and I walked the Camino Francis. People walk for all manor of reasons.  Even for those whom could not verbalize why they walked there is a story.  In listening to why people walk I fell in love with the concept of helping others discover and share their stories through photography.  Weather your story is a walk in the wild, a change in life circumstances, a personal belief, or selling products or services, I can help you to see, build and share your story.
