CONNECT VIA VIDEO CHAT!
It is so important to me to have a connection with the clients that I serve. I want to be just as excited to photograph you & your business as you are to show it off. First, after you get in touch, we will jump on a video call together so I can learn more about your brand and how I can serve you best.
LET'S MAKE IT OFFICIAL
After our initial video call, it’ll be time to make it official! All you need to do is select the service that best fits your needs & I will send you an online proposal with your customized contract, invoice & payment schedule all available to be completed online!
Once your retainer is paid, your projected date will be saved in my calendar & the fun will begin!
THE PLANNING PROCESS
I’ll begin sending you helpful information to assist in preparing your business & team for the session. And then, the best part– we’ll start planning the vision for your images!
You will complete a questionnaire & we will start pinning images to your Pinterest Vision Board. Once I complete your image opportunity analysis, I will then prepare our shoot plan.
IT'S SESSION DAY!
Hooray!!! It’s here! We will start the session by photographing the establishment while the business is closed. I like to schedule sessions 1 hour prior to opening and 1 hour into the business day so that I can capture images of your team interacting with your customers. Afterward, I will photograph any products images & headshots of your team. It’s my job to capture all of the important details & services that you provide to tell the full story & capture an average day in the life of your business.
YOUR REVEAL/ORDERING APPOINTMENT
After the session, you will come to my studio or meet with me via Zoom to see your images for the very first time. It is my goal to have your ordering appointment take place within 1 week so you can make your image selections & order any products so that you receive your final images in a timely manner.
The chosen images will be edited & sent to you in an online gallery. From this gallery, you will be able to download to your computer, share to social media & order any additional products/prints.
If you have ordered any physical products & live closeby, you can come to the studio to pick up your products or I can deliver to you. When your products arrive, I will inspect them & notify you of their arrival so we can coordinate a pick up or delivery.
If you are interested in professional wall installation, this can be coordinated for you. Please inquire for more information about professional installation.
WRITE TESTIMONIAL & STAY IN TOUCH
Hooray! You have now experienced my full process from start to finish!
Please take a quick moment to write a brief review of my services for other potential clients to see. My business runs on referrals so every review matters!
By leaving me a review on Google, you are provided with a $190 product credit that can be used at your next ordering appointment within 12 months of receiving. You can also earn product credits by referring clients to me. For each client that books, you can earn more $190 product credits, Studio & product credits CAN be combined but must be used within 12 months of receiving.
Let’s connect today so that I can create a
custom photographic experience
for you & your loved ones
that you will cherish for a lifetime & beyond!
I will guide you every step of the way

My calendar does fill up quite quickly.
Clients should reserve their place in my calendar as early as possible to ensure there is room on my calendar.
It's is never too early to book to ensure a spot during the recommended time frame.
I typically book 2-3 months in advance.
My custom branding photography sessions are all about THE EXPERIENCE.
Clients will receive access to my client portal with all of the information on what to expect, what to pack, what to wear, etc.
Clients will complete a worksheet and questionnaire so that your session will be carefully curated prior to your session date. This ensures the best use of time when I arrive.
You’re here because you’ve outgrown your current headshots and selfies that just aren't doing your brand justice!
You know that now it’s time to step up your marketing efforts with editorial quality Personal Branding images that tell your brand's authentic story.
You’re an expert coach, consultant, entrepreneur, speaker, author, healer or any other personality brand and want images that will help you express your true self, increase your confidence and showcase the distinctiveness of your brand in a way that makes you feel proud and will drive new clientele.

ARE JUST A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS
Lemonade, hand lettering, & shiny objects
My name is Marianne Bley.
Some refer to me as a Professional Wedding Crasher, others The Baby Whisperer.
I have been building relationships and delivering spectacular wedding experiences to couples for the last 13 years. I have photographed over 350 weddings and have an extensive list of testimonials across the web.
5 years ago, I took the leap into specializing in newborns as well. I have spent this time working side by side with doctors and nurses in my local hospitals, as well as, taking private training lessons with various newborn specialists and leaders in the newborn photography industry to learn everything I can about these beautiful little people.
Since then, I have photographed over 3,500 babies!
My work doesn't stop there, I assist clients in designing stunning displays to grace the walls of their home and/or business. By utilizing your personal style and color palette when planning your session, I am able to create displays that fit seamlessly into your current home decor.
Whether you are looking to show off that new flashy engagement ring, celebrate the growth of your family or a milestone, I am your girl!
