A Modern Approach to Baby Photos

Oahu + San Francisco newborn photographer


Congratulations! Let’s capture the arrival of your beautiful new baby – the newness, the details, the emotions and love that you have for your new little one – we’ll capture it all. I strive to take on a contemporary, lifestyle portraiture approach to capturing your infant’s first photographs. I’ll provide you with digital images for you to print and share however you wish.

When it comes to finding a professional newborn photographer in Hawaii and the San Francisco Bay Area, I understand that you as new parents have many choices to make. I hope that when you’re looking for newborn photographers you’ll allow me the opportunity to capture your family during this special time in your lives!

  • 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.

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?

In the comfort of your own home!

Will you help me figure out what to wear?

Yes, I will include information on what to wear to your session. You’re also welcome to ask me any questions about the outfits you have in mind for your family.

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 wear a mask, I am fully vaccinated, & I will not attend your indoor photo session if I am feeling under the weather. 

When should I book?

It is best to book before your baby arrives. 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.

What They’re Saying!

  • We hired Marissa to do our newborn photography session, as we loved the style of her photographs. She did an amazing job! Everything from initial communication, to the day-of shoot, to getting the final photos was really easy. We were especially impressed with how thoughtful she is about the details, such as the right timing for optimal lighting. My wife also loved how Marissa provides different outfits that clients can wear. We highly recommend Marissa to anyone looking for newborn photography.
