let me tell your story

I’m here to celebrate you! I believe that every family has a unique story, and that story deserves to be shared and preserved for the next generation. My sessions are child-led, which allows for simplistic imagery, full of what illustrates who you are. The magic often happens in the in-between moments, with tender kisses, belly tickles and a whole lot of laughter.

As a mother myself, I strongly believe that every child deserves to see and remember just how loved they are. Pictures are a gift, as they freeze moments which are otherwise fleeting. These memories are not just for you, but all of the generations that follow you.

Studio Newborn

session details

Studio newborn sessions take place in the first 14 days of life, and leverage the use of props and posing techniques. These sessions can last 2-4 hours depending on how long it takes to stop, feed and soothe the baby, and are only offered on weekdays. Images with immediate family members are included. Please book your session in the second trimester to guarantee availability around your due date. We never quite know when they will be ready to meet the world!

lifestyle Newborn

session details

Lifestyle newborn sessions take place in your home and are candid and natural. These sessions celebrate your family dynamic and do not include the use of props or baby poses. Babies are photographed more naturally and simplistically. Decent natural light is needed to ensure beautiful imagery, and often the session will take place in the master bedroom and/or living room. Babies of all ages are welcome. The sessions last 1-2 hours, and include immediate family members. Please book your session in the second trimester to guarantee availability around your due date. These sessions are offered on weekdays only.

Five minutes after she walked through my front door we were laughing like old friends. She’s incredible with my son. The smiles in our pictures are genuine.

- Nichola

While the quality of her work speaks for itself, it’s the person behind the lens that teases out the perfect shot time and again. Marena has been a joy to work with, during the sessions and after.

- sara

Marena was professional, patient and persistent and her warm and friendly style immediately put us at ease - all important qualities in those sleepless early days with a new baby. We also loved that she provided framing services. The final product is beautiful. We can't recommend Marena enough!

- shannon

Marena delivers high quality work with pristine attention to detail, a deep knowledge about photography, and always captures the perfect "in-between moments". Will you find less expensive photographers in the area? Of course. However, you truly get what you pay for, and the photos that we have are true treasures.

- jennifer

The experience with Marena is untouched by any other photography experience I have ever had, she is amazing at what she does. She displays such love, passion and creativity in her work, while being extremely laid back making everyone comfortable with the process and really listening to what you want.

the session experience

pre-consultation

I schedule a call to get to know you, your family, and what you’re looking for in your images. We will go over things to avoid, things your children like, what location and time works best and what to wear.

1

photoshoot

Depending on the session type, sessions will last anywhere from 1-2 hours (more for studio newborns, less for milestone minis). I promise, they are fun!

2

editing & retouching

An incredible amount of work goes into ensuring each and every image in your gallery is perfect. I hand-edit each one, adjusting for color, contrast and impact. 

3

optional in-person ordering

I offer in-person ordering options for all of my clients that want to take advantage of our design services. I have software that allows me to drop images from your session onto the walls in your home. You can see the final product before purchasing, guaranteeing your satisfaction. All decision makers must be present at the ordering session.

product delivery

I try to hand deliver each product, to make sure nothing happens in transit. If you are located outside five miles of my studio, standard shipping rates apply for delivery, or you are welcome to come and pick your products up at your convenience.
