So happy you stopped by!
My name is Marissa Slaby and I am the face behind the camera. Five years ago I picked up a Canon Rebel T6 and took a million and one photos of my son. This poor kid had to endure multiple outfit changes for some of my crazy ideas. Eventually, I started taking photos of friends and family. Soon it became more than a hobby. I felt like I finally found something that made my soul happy. Not only did I enjoy taking photos but I loved the editing process. To be able to go back and see the happiness. I thought how lucky am I to be able to capture these special memories. Two years later I took a leap of faith and quit my 9-5. I had absolutely no plan but I went with it.
Now here we are. Completely self taught but forever learning. I specialize in family and maternity portraits but I do it all. Weddings. Birthdays. Headshots. I am a lover of tall grassy fields, sunsets and golden hour. Little babies in Moses baskets. Wrinkly little fingers and toes. Wildflower fields make me happy and old vintage pickup trucks make my heart skip a beat. I love going with the flow and capturing you in your most natural moments. The ones that may not seem like a big deal to you at the time. A small detail that captures enormous emotion.
Your session is your story and I'm just along for the ride.
