I started in photography to take better photos of my kids and family events, but once I got a camera in my hand I was hooked! This led to classes through local adult ed courses, and eventually evening classes at the New England School of Photography in Boston in portrait, posing, family and lighting. My favorite type of photography is anything with people, (landscapes, while beautiful, do not inspire me). Capturing real people and bringing their personalities to life is my joy. I love to create images that someone loves and then is proud to use on their social media, professional websites and/or headshots for artistic endeavors. During the first year of the pandemic when close encounters were not allowed, I developed a "porch portrait" series in which I captured people outside their home (at a safe distance) to help them remember that unprecedented time in their life. I also enjoy working with couples, families and newborns, providing them with beautiful images to provide them with memories they can keep. It is very important to me that I keep learning. Photography is always changing and I make it a priority to attend in-person workshops, online courses and find mentors who inspire me to hone my skills.


I start with an introductory email, anticipating any concerns the client may have, and letting them know what we’ll be doing, and of course answering any questions they may have. Once at the session, I am genuinely happy to be meeting them in person, and will spend just a few minutes in conversation and then reminding them that posing for the photos will be easy and natural. Most of the posing is walking and standing, something they are likely very good at already! Frequent positive feedback is essential. There is no wrong way for them to pose, though I will direct them with slight adjustments to create the desired look.

Favorite Locations:

I like to photograph in town centers where there are shops, benches, parks, trees and alley-ways. For example, Wayland, Wellesley, Arlington, Concord (Massachusetts) all provide a variety of backgrounds.

Marian's Testimonials

  • Marian was excellent to work with. She made me feel comfortable and relaxed during my shoot. She and I discussed beforehand where we were going to shoot based on my outfits and the look I wanted. She was professional, prompt and easy going. I would confidently ask her to take any other photos I needed in the future! I have had hundreds of looks and Match stopped counting my likes at 99!

    ~Jen C.

  • Marian is creative, engaging, and truly captures your personality in photos. I appreciated that she took the time to scout some locations that were suitable for a range of backgrounds for my portraits. Working with Marian was like going for a walk with a good friend; her ability to keep you at ease, laughing, and engaged makes for a relaxed photo session. Thanks!

    ~James S.

  • Working with Marian was a great experience. If you are not a natural in front of the camera (who is???) she makes you feel comfortable in your skin so your pictures come out great! She knows how to direct her subjects and gives easy and specific tips so you look your best. She creates a relaxed and comfortable environment and has a great eye!

    ~Craig S.

  • I had a wonderful experience with Marian as my photographer for dating site photos. She was talented, fun and kind. We had a great time and I was extremely pleased with the outcome of the photos. I would highly recommend Marian for any photography needs you may have.

  • "Marian was great to work with for my first real portrait session. I emailed her ideas for what I had in mind and she helped me come up with ideas for locations that worked with what I wanted. I was nervous about looking too 'posed' but she had clear direction on how I should look and the photos turned out great! Marian was professional, creative and patient with a first-timer like myself.
