Get to know me more….

If you are anything like me you have stalked my Instagram or Facebook (trying to put face to a name) to see who you might be working with. I know exactly how you feel and how overwhelming the whole process can be. I do want you to know that I got you! Whether it’s making sure you don’t have lipstick on your teeth or making sure your hair is tucked away perfectly so we can see your face (but also making sure to always get your good side too). Those little details matter to me because I know they matter to you. But more importantly, I want you to feel comfortable with me. I truly do want to be your friend not just some girl behind the camera clicking the shutter button. Some of my closest friends were first clients and instantly we just felt so comfortable spending every milestone together whether it was Christmas photos, getting engaged, planning out your big wedding day or the birth of your first child. I feel honored to be there for it all.

My husband and I are currently expecting our first child this summer. Our baby hasn’t even arrived and we are already planning to capture every single moment whether its taking endless photos of our cutie or lots of silly videos to embarrass him/her one day.

The key to my heart is pizza and tacos (hence why I married my husband the owner of Taco Tummy totally joking). My husband and I are high school sweethearts and he is my best friend. I am so lucky to be his but he is also just as lucky ;) I have watched endless episodes of Fixer Upper not so secretly wishing I could be Joanna Gaines. I always have some type of DIY project going on at home so I can live vicariously though her. Usually 6 out of 7 days I am running on very little sleep so coffee is my sweet addiction. And I am totally okay with it :) I love traveling and seeing new things. My dream locations to visit are: Hawaii, Greece, Puerto Rico, Egypt & Jerusalem. I can’t get enough of the sun in the summer time but I also enjoy the cold weather and snuggling in bed with my sweetie as we watch Grey’s Anatomy after a long day of work.  

My most asked question from clients is do I prefer doing photography or makeup? And the answer is, I have no favorites. I honestly love them both for different reasons. Every woman deserves to feel her best and most beautiful every day so getting the chance to doll her up and see her face glow with excitement is just indescribable and will never get old. Capturing all of those moments in between at a session, whether its a toddler that doesn’t want to let go of mom’s leg because one day when that toddler is a teenager mom will look back and it will bring back all kinds of memories. That’s the beauty of freezing time to cherish for years to come.

If you still feel like stalking a little more LOL I do have a personal youtube page just search Marina Nicole.
