My Philosophy

I create whimsical heirlooms to hang on your walls before your little ones grow up.

I know how difficult it is to figure out what to wear, when to plan a session, worry if your children will behave, and finally, creating photo albums or printing your photos. I'll handle the details so you can cherish these memories.

Holding photographs in your own hands, perusing a family album, walking by portraits of your children - these simple, small things create our legacy. Invite me to be a part of yours. 

I'm Marie, a DC Maternity, Newborn, and Family Photographer, and I believe in legacy. I photograph motherhood with an old-world, nostalgic flair, and film is my medium of choice. I believe I should have been born in Europe and am usually planning my next trip. Historic homes have my heart, and I am frequently chasing around my rambunctious toddler in mine.

My style is timeless and iconic so your children and grandchildren can cherish the legacy you have provided for them years from now.
