What Clients Are Saying

    review rating 5  Best experience! She really knows how to handle babies and get the best photos! Prices were amazing considering the quality of work and all she has to do to get these shots. So glad we did this!

    thumb Kira Kowalski

    review rating 5  Marcelle is so professional and spectacular! I've attended Marcelle's newborn workshop in August 2017. I've learned a lot about baby posing safety. She was so patient and she gave us so much information that day. I felt no question was stupid and her answers were very understandable. I highly recommend to attend her workshop. She took my newborn photography to a next level.

    thumb Olga Chagarov Photography

    review rating 5  Marcelle is amazing at her craft! She not only has a great eye, but her attention to detail and creativity far beyond meet anyone's expectations! There's a reason she is booked many months in advanced! I recommend her studio to anyone seeking out an experience of a life time. Very easy to work with, fun, patient, and warm hearted. Exceptional!
