"I Capture Candid Authentic Moments That Will Tug On Your Heartstrings & Can Cherish Forever"


What Clients Are Saying....

Marianne really captured the warmth of our family in a series of intimate portraits."

“Marianne did our maternity photos a few weeks ago and they turned out beautiful! She was easy to work with, prompt responding to emails and put in extra effort to make sure we got all the shots we wanted! I would definitely recommend her and can't wait until she does our newborn shoot in a few weeks!!”

“We hired Marianne to do a newborn/toddler photo shoot.  It was pure chaos!  But some how, some way Marianne still was able to capture some amazing, endearing images.  Given the fact that I had just had a baby, our house was pretty much a disaster when she arrived.  She helped us set up for the shoot in our bedroom - making it look clean and immaculate for our photos.  Additionally, she was super patient when we had to tend to one or both children . We loved her warmth and kind-hearted nature.  My toddler warmed right up to her, which helped get us some incredible photos of him.  But most of all, I loved that she did not overly pose us. She captured us as we are & our personalities shined through her photos because of that."

Ocean Lover & Sunset Seeker

I have always loved the pursuit of the perfect sunset. The specific moment when the sun kisses the water, the sky is full of amber, blue, and pink hues, and the sand starts to sparkle.

When time stops and imagination begins; my soul can soak it all in. Where the sandpipers play, small treasures found, and the ocean sings. Where I can just be me with the sea. 



A little about myself,

I was born in California and grew up in a family of 5. No matter where life has taken me the coast has always been a place of serenity. My love for the ocean and marine life started young in life, through countless family trips up and down the coast, long days at the beach with friends, education, and the pursuit of the perfect sunset.

Having a passion for photography & the coast, along with my love for children has allowed me to capture special moments that tell a story or ignite a certain feeling. I believe in creating memories that create smiles you can cherish with loved ones forever.
