Welcome to the blog!
Over the past decade, I’ve been honing my craft, trying to listen to what my heart really wants to be working on, and I 100% can see the evolution of my photography.
I wanted to share with you that journey, to show you all that time, hard work, passion and WORK can get you far.
I’ve always been attracted to the romanticism, the wonder and beauty of our forests. I grew up reading fairy tales, storybooks where characters had the most marvelous adventures outside.
So with so many beautiful woodlands to explore so close to home, I knew I just had to bring some of that magic to life.
To me, boudoir is more than the clothes you bring, or how much skin you want to show. The power behind boudoir is the vulnerability, the acceptance and appreciation of the beauty of your body as it is right now.
Maternity photoshoots are some of my favorite, I love seeing the pure love on mom's face as she thinks of her little one. There's so much hope and excitement in the room!
My "Glam the Streets" photoshoots are all about stepping out into an urban setting looking like you're on your way to the red carpet. I think there's something so romantic, and so intriguing about posing in a beautiful ballgown on the steps of a brownstone or in a gorgeous park. Where would you like to be photographed?
I was inspired by my mentor Sue Bryce and her beautiful portraits of dancers; the way the tulle flowed, the dancers captured in a single moment of poise, seemingly effortless as they spun, posed and went on pointe.
I wanted to try and capture the grace, the beauty of ballet, and I hope I've been able to show a small part of that world for you.
I'm thrilled to open the world of Fine Art portraits to my clients to book for their own photoshoots. A Fine Art Portrait photoshoot offers much more to the imagination than a customary portrait photoshoot with me. In a Fine Art Portrait photoshoot, we really push for beauty & creativity overload. From anything from dancing in pointe shoes with an elegant tulle skirt, to floating in mid-air in an exquisite gown, surrounded by twinkle lights.
For business owners, and professionals, your headshot image sets the tone of who you are and and what you want others to know about you. What do you want your Personal Branding images to say about you?
These portraits will become a legacy to your family, they will outlast you and let your children see and remember you at this time in your lives. Exist in photos not only for yourselves, but for them.
Marisa wanted to do something romantic, relaxed, care-free, a photoshoot that more expressed her personality. I wanted to make sure this photoshoot read as 100% Marisa. I present to you, Marisa and her Rose Garden.
