Welcome to


The D Family – Outdoor Family Session, Livonia MI

Photography is such an amazing job.  I get to help my clients hold on to some of the most precious memories of their life.   From once in a life time wedding photos and beyond.  I get to know each of my photo clients, and they all hold a special place in my heart.  I LOVE to get the “WE’RE EXPECTING!”  call that often comes after the wedding.  ( It’s so fun!! )  Maternity and newborn photos are priceless to me, a fleeting and amazing time in life.  And then, getting to watch kids and families grow throughout the years is just amazing!   Kids seem to grow in the blink of an eye, and I’m trilled to get to capture that amazing journey.  The D Family has been kind enough to let me photograph them every year for the last four years.  I SO look forward to seeing them each summer, seeing how big the kids have grown, and hanging out with such a fun family.    We talk about school, new television shows, and all of the other fun stuff they have been up to.  This year we decided to try a new venue, Greenmead Historical Park and it definitely did not disappoint!  So many cute buildings to use as backdrops, a nature trail, lots of lush greenery.  And the D family is always up for fun shots ( see their superhero pose) and we always break out some fun props for the kids.  One of my favorite things about family sessions is letting the kids run, play, and have fun.   While we do get posed photos too, my heart is drawn to the ones of them just being themselves!  And, we always end with a fun treat, I mean what better way is there to conclude a family session?!?  Check out some of my favorite poses, and thank you to the D family for letting me capture how beautiful you all are once again!!  xoxo Marlaina

I mean, how fun is this?!?!?!

I don’t think think two kids could be any more cute!!!
