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 3.5 years old and she's full of life, energy, and she is an expert negotiator at the moment. We have been living together in the Bay Area for almost 3 years! My how time flies! We love the Bay Area but Hawai'i is the place that I call 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 where I studied Counseling Psychology.
I officially started my photography business 3 years ago after having my daughter, but I have been photographing friends and family for a while now! 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!
