MAKE your life FEEL like A FUN GAME,

rather than something to survive & endure.

CREATE A LIFE-BRAND

I’ve been using the phrase “simple pictures with big backstories” for a while now. Those 5 words were a 2017 divine download and could not sum up the MARIE in my work better. This has meant less emphasis on well-rounded technical skill and has anchored me in the best way. I’ve let go of trying […]

Simple Pictures with Big Backstories of 2017

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. They say you can learn a lot about someone by what they photograph. They also say that everyone has their own unique perspective. I couldn’t agree more.

Teaching Children about Self Expression through Documentary Photography

Playful Dads: A Documentary Photo Project

You know those trips it seems you will never top and will never be forgotten? That’s how the trip to the cabin was last summer… The weather was AMAZING. The food was good as always. The mosquitoes were there, but bearable. The fish were biting like crazy. The hot springs were just hot enough. Fun […]
