Northern VA Family Photographer

I didn't get newborn photos.

You read that correctly. I felt overwhelmed, didn't feel like I had what I needed to prepare, didn't know what to wear...the list goes on. And now, I don't have those moments. How I wish I did...

As a Northern Virginia Family Photographer, I know how stressful photo sessions can be. I now take care of all of the details of your session with a customized experience.

I’m Marie. I'm a Family Photographer Northern Virginia and am drawn to all things romantic, elegant, and whimsical. I believe motherhood photography should be as beautiful as wedding photography.

These photographs are eternal -  they're our means to remember these small, sacred moments, and I want to remember.

about Family Photographer
Northern VA, Marie

My Philosophy

I STRIVE TO CREATE LASTING MEMORIES WITH EMOTION and I am just as passionate about your memories as you.

I aim to capture connection and tender moments, so you won’t see props or a lot of staged posing in my images. I find that the photos that capture relationships and connection are not only classic and stand the test of time, but they speak to the heart the most.

Holding photographs in my own hands, perusing a family album, walking by portraits of my children - these simple, small things bring me great joy, and I believe they will for you, too. Invite me to be a part of your 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. 


Insatiable wanderlust
