Let's capture the arrival of your beautiful new baby!

"I can't say enough good things about my experience with Marissa and her photography. She was super responsive from beginning to end...All in all, Marissa has an incredibly keen eye for design and details, which make her stand out in this business. We look forward to working with her again!"

"We love our newborn photos! Marissa was super easy to work with. From our first contact with her, everything went seamlessly. We live in a tiny apartment with not a lot of ambiance, but she was able to make it work! She is super patient and easy going!"

"We are so in love with our newborn session photos by Marissa! During the session itself she made us feel so comfortable, we didn't even realize that the photo session had begun...We really wanted the most natural looking photos... Marissa made us feel so comfortable and is so talented with natural light."

Congratulations! You are probably here because you are looking for a photographer to capture this moment for you! - the newness, the details, the emotions and love that you have for your new little one - let's capture it all!


Let's answer some of your questions...

What does a newborn session look like with you?

I am a lifestyle photographer. My style is simple, modern & aimed at helping to create beautiful moments between you and your family in order to capture this special time for you.


Where will my session take place?

If you are doing a newborn session in Hawaii, you may do your newborn session in your home, or outdoors. If you are located in the SF Bay Area, you may do your session in your home, at an outdoor location, or potentially at a studio in San Jose.

Will you help me figure out what to wear?

Definitely! I assist families with coordinating their outfits. If you are interested in wearing a dress from the client closet you're welcome to do so! I have a variety of simple dresses in different sizes that are mainly light/neutral/earth tone for moms to wear. If you do not have anything to wear, you're welcome to have a look to see if anything catches your eye! Feel free to ask to see the dresses in the client closet once you've booked your session.

I don't have a beautifully decorated home is that OK?

I often get emails from mom's saying "I don't have a beautifully decorated home. In fact, my home is very simple. Can I still do an indoor newborn session?" And my response is always, Yes! Simple is beautiful too! 

Are you taking any COVID precautions?

Yes, the health and safety of my clients has always been a top priority. In addition to sanitizing equipment, washing hands and using sanitizer throughout the session prior to touching anyone, I am also wearing a good mask as well as glasses with a shield on the sides. I also try to keep a 6 foot distance and send out a health questionnaire the day before your session. I will also let you know if I answer yes to any of the questions on the health questionnaire as I will not attend any photo sessions feeling under the weather.

When should I book?

It is best to book before your baby arrives. We do not know when baby will arrive, but we can at least get you on the schedule, and when baby arrives we can figure out a final date for your session. I recommend booking during month 6-8 of your pregnancy, as I accept a limited amount of newborn sessions per month. However, my schedule does vary from week to week, so please contact me and share your estimated due date or desired session date for more accurate information.​
