The Girl With The Camera

Thanks for considering The Girl With The Camera as your Family Photographer. Taking time out of your hectic schedule to capture special family moments that you dreamed and prayed for is so important.

One of the comments I often hear during photo shoots is that people wish that they had taken the time to take more family photos over the years. Capturing your family’s milestones and miracles are precious moments.

Let me know when and where we can schedule your photo session. Early morning around sunrise or later around sunset is best to take beautiful images in softer light outdoors. Indoors we can do any time.

Marissa, the girl behind the camera

My passion is to draw smiles from the shy ones, laughter from the awkward and I have the firm belief that every moment is a memory.
I focus on capturing natural moments as they happen with as little interference as possible. I enjoy guiding you in front of the camera to enjoy the moment and to create beautiful memories.

My job is to capture ordinary moments beautifully.    Natural lighting is important to me for capturing peoples’ memories in a soft and whimsical way.  Getting up early to capture you in early morning sunlight is my happy place. It’s soft and creates a feeling that can only be repeated when you wait for the sun to set later. Take some time to think about the colours and outfits you will want to wear for your shoot. Children are normally happier with a toy in hand or sometimes even Dad will relax more if he and the boys can kick a ball.  All the more reason why a lifestyle photo shoot is ideal for your family.

“Marissa is an amazing photographer that has the ability to capture moments as they happen naturally and if you do need to pose for the odd photo here and there she has a way of making you feel comfortable and directing you in such a manner that the shots come out beautiful! Marissa is an amazing person and she has a heart of gold and she really has a talent for taking beautiful pictures. I have used her services to capture all the big moments (and small ones) in my life and I will continue to use her and I will recommend her wherever I can!” – Elmarie
