Not only was losing our first home and all of our belongings an eye opener, but I have also just lost both of my parents within the last 2 years. Why am I sharing this on my about page? Because these life-changing events have led me to this point in my career, where I have chosen to work specifically with couples, families and small business owners to showcase what's important in life; embracing and honoring our family, our unique love story, and those feelings that get us out of bed in the morning....our passions.

Life is too short; we must be committed to being happy and doing what we love. 

For months prior to my mother's passing, she was worried sick that she had lost my brother's wedding album that his wife and he had made for her several years ago. I saw how much that album meant to her and I was hurting for her. Weeks after my mother's passing, I found the box in an unpacked box in her garage. I was so relieved to have found it and laughed at how stressed and upset she had gotten over it and it was right under her nose the whole time. :) Don't worry Mom, the family legacy will continue on and your album is still safe and sound!

Marianne was incredible to work with for our newborn photos. Marianne is a professional and it’s evident in the way she handled our little girl. The entire experience was enjoyable and peaceful (and that’s impressive when working with a newborn). She was also patient with me as a first time mom and I felt absolutely comfortable handing over my little girl to her. The pictures came out even better than we expected! She took her time, made sure to get all the shots we wanted and honed in on the style we were looking for. I know these pictures will be memorable forever and we’re so pleased with them!

Marianne was very responsive to our questions and was very helpful leading up to our appointment for newborn portraits. We instantly felt comfortable in her studio and very happy with all the extra care she took handling our newborn with special needs. Our photos are stunning and we absolutely love them. We are so appreciative of her experience and expertise!
