Simple Pictures with Big Backstories of 2017

I’ve been using the phrase “simple pictures with big backstories” for a while now. Those 5 words were a 2017 divine download and could not sum up the MARIE in my work better. This has meant less emphasis on well-rounded technical skill and has anchored me in the best way. I’ve let go of trying […]

The In-Home Documentary Maternity Session for Sarah + Jean

When I began to do research for my first maternity session, I felt like I kept finding pregnancy cliches – heart hands, chiffon over bellies, baby shoes – but I rarely found photos that told me something unique about the couple being photographed.

Documentary photography was always within, I just didn’t realize it. When I first got into photography, about a year ago, I was always a tad bit envious of all the other photographers I saw online taking gorgeous photos of their children… You see, I don’t have children yet. I always thought it would be so […]

17 Photos to Inspire You in Documenting Adult Men

Throughout various communities, I’ve seen photographers wish they could pose men better. Documenting adult men is a whole different ball game and, frankly, pretty easy to do! I had a wild hair to challenge our FB group to photograph their husbands (or bestie). We’ve been saying for months that we don’t want our blog to […]
