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
Pay your deposit and sign your client agreement (the link is located on your invoice). The start time of your session will be determined once you share images of the rooms in your home. You will receive information to help you prep for your session a day or 2 before your photo session.
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.
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 beautifully edited portraits within 5 weeks of your session in which you will make your selections. 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, Marissa will put the finishing touches on your photos before sending them your way.
