The biological child of Paul and Linda McCartney, the member of the Beatles and professional photographer respectively; Mary McCartney, followed the path of photography like her mother. Mary has a half sister, Heather McCartney, older to her. She is a fashion designer and has been photographed by Mary. A photograph of Mary McCartney as a baby taken by her mother became very popular. The photo was on the back cover of McCartney otherwise known as Cherries, Paul’s initial solo album. Mary is enthusiastic towards animal protection and rights like her family.
From 1992, Mary started taking professional photographs, specializing in fashion and portrait photography. Since her mother died of breast cancer, Mary campaigned to spread awareness for breast cancer in the United Kingdom. Thus, Cherie Blair, wife of Tony Blair, former prime minister of UK, befriended Mary. Due to this, the photographer got a chance to click the official picture of the prime minister and his family. Prior to this, the most recognized photos by Mary were of her mother’s, weeks before her death.
