Mackenzie loves portraiture in its many different forms: playful and energetic to intimate and introspective. She is equally at home in the studio or on location. Whether photographing an actor, author, politician or someone with a story to tell, she aims to create an atmosphere where subjects feel at ease and authentic images can be made. She credits her ability to disarm people with humor from her extensive exposure to Monty Python and classic Steve Martin movies. She lives in New York with her husband and son, and when not taking photos, she can be found biking around Brooklyn in search of the perfect espresso.
