Hi! I'm Marissa.
I know there are so many talented photographers out there, so thank you for taking the time to stop by and check out my work!
I am a portrait & lifestyle photographer, wife, & mama to my sweet little Em who is not so little anymore. She is 3 years old and she's full of life, energy, and opinions ha! We have been living together in the Bay Area for almost 3 years! My time flies! We love the bay area but Hawai'i is home. I grew up on Oahu, met my partner there, got married there, and basically it was all I knew until I moved to the Bay Area for graduate school.
I have been in business officially for about 2.5 years, but I have been photographing friends and family for a while now. How did I decide to become a photographer you might ask? Well, I grew up around photography. I watched my mother photograph family friends as a hobby while growing up, and after trying it out myself I became hooked. However, it wasn't until I had my daughter that I realized I wanted to pursue it professionally.
Photography is my passion and I feel so blessed to be able to call this my job. I love that I am able to help families document significant moments in their lives from the birth of a baby to a family holiday in Hawai'i. I want to capture all of the moments that you wish you could bottle up and hold onto forever. As your photographer, my promise to you is that I will put my heart and soul into capturing special moments of you and your family for you and your loved ones to treasure forever.
Have a look around and get in touch if you'd like to book a session!
