We loved our shoot with Marissa! She was able to keep our 3.5 year old and 10 month old engaged and smiling for the entire shoot. She even brought bubbles, which kept the kids focused for an extra 10 minutes! We will certainly use Marissa again! – Sarah S. New York City

Marissa is the best. We’ve done a few shoots with her and every part of the process from scheduling to the final product has been seamless and perfect. She really worked to make the photo shoot easy and enjoyable for all of us. Marissa’s photographs are incredible — she captures amazing candid moments, creates great posed shots, and everything in between. And equally important she is so good with my (now 7 month old) daughter while she is photographing. Having kids of her own, she knows how to get her to smile, be happy, and enjoy being in the photographs, which makes the photographs that much better! For me Marissa is so easy to work, attentive, and always makes sure we’re happy with the final product! – Elizabeth H. Chicago, IL

Marissa is amazing. Working with her was exactly as she advertised. It was fun and easy. She took my family to the park, set us all at ease and managed to get beautiful pictures of my ordinarily difficult children. We highly recommend Marissa and will definitely use her again. – Rachel C. New York City

It was so refreshing to work with Marissa. She was so sweet and easy to work with, and made the process — from start to finish — enjoyable and non-stressful for us. She was so great with our son and took the pressure off of us to get him to smile since she knew exactly what to do. Most importantly, we love the final product. The pictures were fantastic and we love the mix of posed and candid shots. We look forward to working with Marissa again for our next photo shoot! – Jayme S, Chicago

Maternity shoots can go one of several ways but Marissa was able to create exactly what we wanted. She staged, styled and ultimately, captured, images that felt elevated, natural and warm. Most importantly, she found the right angles and lighting, gave kind direction and loving encouragement to make me feel beautiful throughout, even at 38 weeks pregnant. The ease and calm came through in the pictures. We can’t wait for her to capture the next special chapter with our little one. – Neha R., New York, NY
