about the process
STEP 1: Get in Touch
After you’ve contacted Marissa, select your favorite package and share which date works for your family based on Marissa’s availability.
STEP 2: Booking Your Session
Submit a $250 non-refundable deposit and sign the client agreement shared by Marissa.
STEP 3: Planning Your Wardrobe
The outfits that you select are key to creating the look of the images. Marissa recommends selecting something simple, and classic that reflects your style. Neutrals, creams and soft muted colors photograph beautifully. There are so many great clothing brands including H&M, Zara, Noralee, Jamie Kay, Nothing Fits But, Red Dress, Pink Blush, Morning Lavender, Jcrew, Everlane, etc. If you have questions please reach out to Marissa!
STEP 4: The Final Images
Following your session, Marissa will select the best images for artistic editing. Marissa will carefully compare and select only the best images that meet her standards. Each image is individually processed and enhanced to her editing style. You will receive your private online gallery of soft proofs around 2-3 weeks after your photoshoot. Just like many professional photographers, you will not receive RAW files, since these are just the rough drafts essential to your final images. Once your favorite images are selected based on the package you purchased, Marissa’s retoucher will put the finishing touches on your photos before sending them your way.
