I started my Family Photography business shortly after a disappointing experience with my own newborn photographer. 

Our session only lasted 30 minutes, and we ended up with photos that didn't really feel like us. They were posed, stiff, and didn't reflect our actual personalities.

I decided that when it came to my own business,  I would only take candid photos that told a story. No emotion or interaction would ever be manufactured. Everything would be REAL.

And now, here we are!

I'm marjorie!

hello friend
+

you deserve to be captured just as you are.

I believe

you'll never regret investing in photos.

I believe

parents belong in the frame with their kids.

I believe

your photo session can be fun and relaxing.

I believe

My mission is to provide your family with photographs that will make you say, "Yep, that's us!"

And to make the process fun and relaxing!

I'd love to get to know you so we can make some beautiful, meaningful photos together!

I take the time to get to know the families I’m working with and let them get to know me. I never take it for granted when I’m invited into a family’s home. 
 
I believe there’s no way to capture the real you unless I know the real you. Documentary photography allows me to dig a little deeper to learn about what makes your family uniquely beautiful, so I can bring out those details in your photos.

being your photographer is a big deal

i want you to know...

"no one has ever so perfectly captured our baby's spirit and essence."

"We had the most wonderful experience with Marj Cohen when she documented our growing family! She has a wonderfully kind and joyful personality and we felt comfortable being completely ourselves throughout the shoot. Her exquisite photos capture the realness of our family and the reality of this time in our baby's life. No one has ever so perfectly captured our baby's spirit and essence and we will treasure these photos forever."

"Now our son will be able to see how much love he brought to our home."

"These photos are so special! Many of these moments would have been stored only in our memories and probably become fuzzy over time. Now our son will be able to look at them and see what it was like, our first year as a family and how much love he brought to our home! Thank you Marj for such a great experience!"

"Marjorie spent time just talking to us and making us comfortable."

"I am so happy with all of the beautiful photos! I can't stop looking at them. I was nervous about it being a candid photo shoot because who can truly be candid in front of a camera? Marj was great at easing us into it. She spent time just talking to us and making us comfortable then before we knew it she was snapping away. We had a lot of fun. Thanks, Marj!!! Cant wait to work with you again!"
