Capturing the Joyful & Unscripted Moments of Life

When you flip through your family photos, what images bring you pure joy? If I had to guess as a Los Angeles Newborn Photographer, it's probably not the ones showing forced laughter and coordinated outfits. It's your kids learning to bake. Your partner holding your newborn son for the first time. Or your toddler taking her first steps.
And what's wrong with these images? Nothing. Except none of them include you. It's time to change all that.

It's time for

It's time for you to be part of their story.

to be part of their story.



No posing. No chasing the light. Just you living life with your favorite people.
Because the photographs you treasure most capture the essence of your entire family's personality. And the joy you feel when you spend time together.

Hi, I'm Marjorie. You can only understand family life if you have lived it. The combination of sleep deprivation, emotional attachment, and responsibility you feel to keep these little people alive--while feeling like you're in the background holding it all together.

That cocktail of factors is what binds us together in parenthood. And that connection is why I bring parents into the scene. To show them they're doing a GREAT job. Because they deserve to see themselves--with their thriving family--reflected in beautiful photographs of life's most treasured moments.

How It Works





 Spend time together. Do things you love. And never worry about a time limit or a tantrum. I'll be the calming presence who captures the best moments as they unfold--even between moments of chaos.

step 03

I'll send a prep guide to answer your questions and help you choose outfits. And I'll send a questionnaire to help me understand your family routines and quirks--so every single one of you feels comfortable in front of my camera.

step 02

We'll start with a conversation about what's important to you and your family for your Los Angeles photos. Then, I'll send you a custom proposal with precisely what you need.

step 01

Discover the joy your kids feel with you as their parent. Look through your albums and prints, and remember that you are doing great. Because that is what this process is all about.

step 04

Find out more

Most photo sessions offer little flexibility, and you often remember the stress more than the result: Finding a missing shoe, hurrying out the door, and adjusting a stray hair or a faltering smile.

With me, you'll never have a time limit, and your only responsibility will be to enjoy your family. So while you relax into moments of genuine connection with your loved ones, I'll produce natural photographs as a result.
