for life's many milestones

I love the chance to come alongside families and help them remember the seasons of their lives. It truly is a privilege to be the person you trust with these milestones. Whether you are celebrating an anniversary, graduation, new baby, or just that your family made it another year and you can't wait to share updates on your Christmas cards, I LOVE being able to capture it. Marriages grow, babies become elementary schoolers, teenagers go to college, and people get married to start the cycle all over again! I know that investing in a photographer is a big deal, and I do not take the privilege to serve families through photography lightly. I know that you are hiring more than just a photographer, you are hiring a friend who is helping document your family's story.

Ready to join the family?

Graduating from high school is really big deal! It's the start of adulthood for a lot of people and it should be celebrated. I want this session to give your senior confidence and joy. It's my goal that they look at these photos for years and love how they look and feel. All senior sessions include professional hair and make up, because everyone deserves to be glammed up!

Seniors start at $700

This is for all the other stuff! Whether it's a family, maternity, newborn, anniversary or literally anything else you want, we can make it happen! I love capturing the milestones in everyone's life and would be honored to have the chance to do that for you. Send me over a note and we will lock down the deets!

All other portraits start at $500

Marie did a fantastic job taking our family portraits. She was very responsive and thorough with the planning process, and so much fun to work with the day of - making us feel comfortable and natural. We actually used her twice in a matter of 2 weeks! We would definitely recommend Marie to anyone!

Marie is your go to woman!!! She literally thinks about every single detail from start to end and is very and does so in a timely manner. On the day of my session, her energy just kept me going! She would tell me how to pose and would also explain why she was doing what she was doing and it just went by so smoothly! She will genuinely be your hype woman throughout the whole session!

Marie is gifted with a creative eye and knows how to bring out the very best in her clients. Marie came to Charlotte to do my daughter's destination senior portraits and it was magical for my daughter to have her hair and make up professionally done...can't wait to book her for my younger daughter's senior portraits next year!

Marie is an amazing person from the little that I got to know her. She is positive, always smiling and laughing. During the session she made us feel so comfortable. I felt like I knew her for years! She was patient also with our little one who was all over the place! After the session, she kept me updated on my photos and got them to me quick and the results were AMAZING!!!!! My husband and I were so happy and excited!! You can see and feel all the emotions in the photos.
