the [wo]man behind the lens



My name is Mary Beth Barlow and I am the creator, photographer and dreamer behind the brand Carolina Gypsy Co.

I was born and raised in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, where I still live.
I graduated from Appalachian State University and if it’s a Saturday in the fall, you can find me at Kidd Brewer w my bff’s cheering on my ‘neers.

I’m a free spirited, dreamer and am so thankful and blessed that I get to wake up and create for a living. My heart beats loudest when I have my camera in my hand and love in front of my lens.

Carolina Gypsy was created while I was in college as a creative outlet for when the black & white of the law and studying got to be much to handle. It was created for the girl who dances to the beat of her own drum.

If you need me, you can probably find me screaming at a football game, answering the questions on Jeopardy, or just look for the black jeep that’s five minutes late
(or there’s a contact page – whatever blows your dress up).

Let’s go get a cold brew and chat – ┬álet’s create magic!
