san francisco family photographer

As a parent herself, Marissa knows the importance of preserving your family’s most precious moments. Marissa strives to create a relaxed and fun family photoshoot where you will have piggy back rides, run, jump, kiss, hug, tickle, spin. With an eye for sweet in-between moments and unique perspectives, Marissa will capture photos that are beautiful and unique to your family, while being sure to keep in mind the lighting and background in order to create the look she is drawn to.

Marissa travels to the San Francisco Bay area every fall for family mini sessions. These sessions are great for families who want something short and sweet for their family photo session. The sessions will take place in Palo Alto, CA and San Francisco, CA.

Mini Session Q & A


Mini sessions are offered to San Francisco Bay area clients. Mini sessions are done at a specific location/date and you may choose from the available times provided. You may sign up to be notified about future mini sessions by subscribing to the newsletter below.

What is lifestyle photography? Will you guide us during the session?

We think that this type of photography takes into consideration the background, lighting, and interactions between the subjects in order to capture photos that look “natural”. We can’t say this is completely natural because we are not just a fly on the wall (like documentary photography) and we will tell you what to do with the prompts that we provide, as well as where to stand in order to optimize the light and assure that we have a great background. Plan on receiving direction from your photographer for any package that you book. We don’t expect you to know what to do!


Yes, Marissa loves styling clients and offering wardrobe suggestions.


Yes, all family sessions include digital files as well as access to an online gallery store filled with professional prints/products.

What They’re Saying!

  • I am so happy I got to work with Marissa!… Her suggestions and attention to little details to achieve a beautiful shoot is impeccable. She is also a mother to a toddler so she understands how to work with them which is also a bonus. Her editing is perfect, I got comments where some of the photos should belong in a magazine and I agree!
