Becoming brand new parents is an exciting, wonderful and to be inclusive, sometimes stressful experience. Yes, there are sleepless nights, and many days you wonder if you will survive! BUT, they are only little once, and time is so fleeting.Marilyn was able to beautifully capture those precious first moments of our little one and as a newly formed family. She approached everything with professionalism and a gentle touch.From the beginning, when we booked our newborn session with Marilyn, she was very accommodating. Our son came a little early (as babies tend to have this own timeline) and Marilyn was able to quickly schedule our actual session soon after his arrival. During the session, she was very patient and allowed breaks for feeding and cuddles! We never felt rushed, and I loved that we were able to have our photos taken in our own home.We were absolutely blown away by the photos we received. They weren't just pictures, but a captured moment in time that looked as beautiful in print as they did in my own memory.
Our family has had multiple professional photos taken with various photographers and I can say without question that Mariyn is the best of the bunch. She is an unrelenting perfectionist who will go the extra mile to ensure your photos are cherished hierlooms. As an example, the first session we had scheduled was supposed to be a nice sunny day, but when we arrived some clouds rolled in that obscured the sunlight. We still tried to make due but the weather was not cooperating. Finally, Mariyn decided to just reschedule the session for another day and try again because she had so many great ideas for our shoot that she wanted to see realized. Our second session was perfect and the shots she composed were absolutely breathtaking. Most photographers would have just done what they could during that first session but to Mariyn that was not good enough, she wants to see her vision realized because of the art and not because of the cash. Because of that, she will be our family photograher for as long as she desires. Thanks Marilyn for the memories!
My review is going to be a bit biased, since I've never had professional portraits done before. Marilyn did an amazing job on our photos!! And they really are those type of pics that you have on the wall and everyone says, " OMG! Who did your pictures! They're gorgeous!!" So needless to say, I ended upgrading to the larger package, since she captured so many wonderful pictures of us. It was hard to choose which photos I wanted and that's because most all of them were amazing. Marilyn also is great with kiddos and catered to our needs in the cold. She tried her best to keep the kids comfortable while we were outside in Fall temps in October, and brought blankets for us to use. Smart thinking!!
We were looking for a unique photographer for my son Michael's senior pictures. I loved Marilyn's pictures on her website. She made the session so much fun and had so many great ideas. She also welcomed any ideas we had. After came the hard part - choosing. There were so many great shots to choose from.
We were so happy that we are planning to use her again!
Marilyn did an awesome job with our family photo session which included 2 noncompliant dogs (they were just a little too excited that day). Her patience with the both of them was what impressed me the most. The colors, vibrancy, and cleanliness of the images are great to look at! I would definately recommend people with pets to try her out!!!
Marilyn went beyond the norm-- to get great Senior pictures for our son Keegan. Keegan a mountain runner, we wanted outdoor pictures. I don't know very many photographers who would be willing to hike 2 and a half miles back South Fork with the gear to get the pictures we all wanted for him. She did a great job and made it fun too. Very professional and love the results!
Marilyn is fantastic! We love our photos! She is flexible, professional, and has an eye for a great photo. It was hard for us to choose our favorites! We will be booking sessions again.
We had a great time during our late fall photo shoot. Three dogs and me just hiking in the woods. The end result was too many awesome shots to pick from! I've recommended her to several friends already. Marilyn is easy and pleasant to work with. The ordering process is easy to navigate and share-really smooth.
Marilyn did an absolutely phenomenal job photographing our wedding this summer. She was so much fun to work with and was prepared for everything. We got our photos in great time and the presentation was beautiful - everything exceeded our expectations. She has wonderful talent and loves what she does, you can tell by how beautiful our pictures turned out! We would recommend her in a heartbeat 🙂
This is our second year getting our family photos done with Marilyn. I have to say that she went so ABOVE and BEYOND what pretty much any photographer would do for you. We decided that we would love to get our family photos done in Seward this year, and Marilyn accommodated us and spent almost the entire day with us. She was prepared for the entire occasion. We ended up hiking out to a VERY special spot with tons of places for the perfect photo's that she knew I was looking for. She also made sure that the weather was ideal for our day as well. Her attention to detail is always amazing, but this year she placed herself on a new level of professionalism. I can't wait for our family photo's next year, with the growth that Marilyn shows as a photographer, dedicated to her trade, I know they will be as spectacular if not BETTER then this year. Thank you again Marilyn! We are customers for life.
