As a newborn photographer, I celebrate the miracle of new life with each client.
I am always speechless after newborn sessions. There is nothing in this world that changes a life like becoming a parent and it is these moments that make my heart melt when I am given the honour of capturing them for a new family. I want to capture the miracle that is your new baby; from their long eyelashes to their wrinkled feet. I want to suspend this moment in time for you so that you can revisit it over and over again.
What being a newborn photographer thought me was that words can not express the joy of new life
You plan as much as possible for your newborn session and then you leave all the planning at the door. You never know how a session will go, but one thing is for sure, I love them all. The sleepy ones, the tiny ones, the ones that came early or that wanted to stay a bit longer before being welcomed by the world. I always enjoy being a witness of a miracle and even more so when I get to capture small feet and wrinkled bodies only a few days old.
Photography has been part of my life since I was very small. Growing up with a father playing around with film and an SLR camera had its advantages when I decided to take up photography as a hobby early on. After studying and working for a few years as a social worker, I still never gave up the dream to become a full-time photographer. With almost 10 years of full-time wedding photography behind me, I am still as passionate to capture your special moments as in that first few years.

What a lovely experience working with Marissa! She is professional and friendly and managed to get my usually shy, clingy and fussy 2 year old to enjoy herself and have fun during our family shoot. Our pictures are amazing. I'm looking forward to Marissa capturing more of our family moments 🙂

You know your photographer did an amazing job when you can't decide which photos you like best. Marissa is patient and very helpful and her work speaks for itself

Marissa made the whole experience magical, from the engagement shoot until the end of the wedding. She was professional, friendly, accommodating and such a fun photographer. It was worth every cent and will be part of the wedding that I will be able to keep with me forever. I still cry when I look at the photos as there are so many special memories and parts that I did not see until the photos. Thank you Marissa.
