I’m Marni.
I take photos!

I am a scientist-turned-photographer who has spent most of their adult life in the Washington, DC area. I now live in Silver Spring, Maryland with my energetic toddler. I’m a city kid who loves to explore nature, collect stories, and create memories.


I capture the real you. Relaxed and comfortable, we’ll chat through our outdoor photoshoot and before you know it we will have a ton of incredible shots. I’m happy to consult on locations and outfits and anything else you need to feel prepared for your photoshoot!


Outdoor photoshoots in the soft, natural light of the Washington DC Metro Area. I do 15 minute mini sessions and 1 hour full sessions for couples, families, friends, or whoever else wants to capture a moment in time in Montgomery County or anywhere else in the DMV. I will help you choose a beautiful park for a venue with ample backdrops whether you’re celebrating a milestone birthday, anniversary, surprise proposal, graduation, senior portraits, colorful portrait photography, or simply taking the opportunity to slow down and have some photos taken. While we will definitely make sure to capture some posed pictures, we will also snag many candid images of you and your loved one(s) in your most real state.

I help in advance with styling and preparation, and will make sure you have fun and feel comfortable in front of the camera. Your professionally edited photos will be delivered in an easy-to-navigate online gallery.

Mini Sessions: 15 minutes | 5 edited images | $250

Full Sessions: 60 minutes | 25 edited images | $350


A quick and easy session to capture all the headshot photos you could dream up. Whether you need them for business, social media, job searches, online dating profiles, or anything else. We’ll work together to get pictures that look like the real you – whether that is serious or silly!

I help in advance with location scouting for outdoor photography sessions, styling, posing, and all other preparation. So that you can get the best headshot portraits of your life.
