My name is Marlene and I currently live in Sugar Hill, Georgia, just north of Atlanta. I’m a USMC Veteran, with an endless love for learning, just about anything “do-it-yourself”, sitting in a bookstore, plants, meditating, and people watching.

I have always been an artist at heart and taught myself how to draw and paint as a child. I love that I can bring my creative side and almost 20 years as an entrepreneur to your session. I understand the importance of each session and take the time to go over your expectations along with providing my ideas to make your session unique.

I officially began photographing when my middle son was born in 2015. I was sure I’d go the posed studio route but quickly realized that doesn’t always work when photographing children. I continued practicing and quickly realized my style of photography had a name, lifestyle photography. I often refer to if as “fly on the wall” photography. From the many genres that I’ve photographed the two I’m most passionate about are family sessions and brand/business sessions.

I have 3 amazing boys; ages 3, 7 and 19. I have another business called Musa Natural that I’ve worked on for the past 20 years and currently in the middle of restructuring.

Contact me and let’s discuss if I’m a good fit for your family and/or your business. I look forward to documenting this current time in your journey.
