Meet Marissa


It’s so fantastic that you’re here!  If you are in search of the perfect photographer for your senior portraits, you’ve come to the right place.

When I was choosing my own senior photographer, I had an extremely difficult time.  Everything looked incredibly similar, and very edited.  Nothing was really unique or would make me stand out.  I wanted to look natural yet gorgeous, and like I had just stepped out of a magazine. That wasn’t an option then… but I’m here to tell you, it is now!  I want you to have the experience and the photos that I never had.  I am the FIRST photographer in the area to provide Professional Hairstyling & Professional Air Brush Make Up in senior sessions.  I have a main standard that I live by for your senior photos, and it is my ultimate goal for you to Be Happy. Be Beautiful. Be You.

A Little More About Me…

I grew up in Hemlock, Michigan and graduated in 2006 from Valley Lutheran High School.  Since then I went to college, moved to Virginia Beach with my high school sweetheart, had a son, and fell in love with photography.  I am happy to be back in Mid-Michigan, and to bring the newest and hottest trends in Senior Photography with me.

I’m inspired by today’s fashion, but I love Hollywood glamor of the 1950’s and 60’s.  I like caramel frappuccinos, sushi, anything created by Apple and girly tv… such as Pretty Little Liars, Gossip Girl, The Mindy Project, Once Upon a Time and New Girl.  If I have a good book, I can read for days (currently obsessed with Jenny Han’s books <3 ). And I will forever be a girl of the 90’s when it comes to music.  Summer Hits of the 90’s is my favorite Pandora station and you should definitely check it out. (; I look forward to hearing from you!

With Love,
