I'm Marissa Slaby. I am married to my best friend and together we have two wild little boys. I started taking photos when my first was born (six years ago!) It certainly started out as a hobby but as time went on I grew to love it. The poses, the props, the editing - all of it! I loved being able to capture those sweet moments of my little boy and I immediately wanted others to experience the same.
Starting my photography business was a giant leap of faith. You could say that I am quite the risk taker. I quit my 9-5 job to be able to follow my dream in taking photos.
Now here we are. Completely self taught but forever learning. I specialize in families, children and lifestyle newborn but will never say no to a baby bump, milestones and engagements. I am a lover of tall grassy fields and wildflowers. Snuggly in-home sessions and yes, with the dogs! Little babies in Moses baskets. Wrinkly little fingers and toes. Old, vintage pickup trucks make my heart skip a beat and I dream of one day owning a greenhouse studio.
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. Their tiny fingers intertwined with yours. That one little curl or the way their face lights up when they look at you. The last baby of the bunch but then seeing all of your little ones together.
Life is a fleeting moment and it's true - babies don't keep.
Allow me to capture that feeling, those emotions and those details for you.
I can't wait to connect and to capture your story!
