MAKE your life FEEL like A FUN GAME,

rather than something to survive & endure.

CREATE A LIFE-BRAND

I’ll never forget the day when we were handed the keys to our home. A tiny piece of metal that held so many milestones and future adventures. Responsibility and adulthood. That key signified contentment and commitment. It was probably one of the greatest acts of the love I had at that point, shared with my partner, […]

Ease Clients into Documentary Photography with Their Front Porch

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 […]
