"I wish I knew"

I'm Marjorie


I work with parents who want relaxed and unposed photos, providing them with images that capture the joyful and unscripted moments in life.

More about Me

An Underwater Family Session is a guaranteed way to get fun and unique photos of your family!

I offer pool photos IN ADDITION to the usual documentary-style family photos. That means you’ll have lots of variety when looking at your gallery, and one-of-a-kind images that very few photographers offer.

So how does it work?

After we take family photos in and around your home, we all jump in the pool together. My camera goes into a specialty underwater housing, allowing me to submerge it completely.

I also take above-the-water photos, and my personal favorite – split shots, or over/unders. This means the camera captures both views in a single image.

Out-of-the-Box Family Photos

Pool time with the family is the epitome of summer! By signing up for an Underwater Family Session, you can have a record of an activity that is otherwise never documented – except from a distance. 

The playfulness and connection also comes very naturally when kids are having fun in the water. So you never have to worry about what to do or how to get the kids engaged.

Making Sure Everyone is Comfortable During Your Underwater Family Session

A frequent question/concern I hear is “Will my body be totally exposed in these photos?” 

While I personally believe that anyone can have a bikini body by following these two easy steps:

  1. Have a body
  2. Wear a bikini

… I do recognize that it may feel extra-vulnerable to appear in front of the camera in nothing but a bathing suit. 

Here is my response to that—

There are strategies and techniques that can be used to lessen the clarity of bodies underwater. In other words, I can make it so you’re not as exposed as you would be.

I got you!

Fun and Freeing Photo Environment

Here are some other advantage to getting pool photos:

  1. Your kids will have a blast, no matter their age
  2. No worrying about what to wear, what to do, where to look
  3. Quality time together as a family
  4. Kids get to show off their personalities and skills
  5. Visually unique and one-of-a-kind images

Endless Underwater Possibilities

Whether you have little kids who are still learning how to swim, or bigger kids who love doing a cannonball, the possibilities are endless.

You can bring in favorite toys, floats, and colorful goggles to liven things up, or simply enjoy each other on your own.

I can create a huge variety of images by simply moving the camera under or over the water.
