If you would have told me ten years ago that I'd be photographing families today, I would have laughed. As far as I knew, family photos were posed and formal with little room for kids to play and show their personalities. But then I stumbled across something called lifestyle photography... and I was hooked.

The photos that will bring tears to your eyes are the ones that come from the smallest moments. Looking back, you want to remember that wobbly walk that means your baby was reaching for toddlerhood. The way that daddy's strong arms look best with kiddos safely wrapped up in them. The way your partner tucks that stray strand behind your ears. The glance you exchange when your little one does something silly.

Those moments are the essence of your story.

Capturing those little slices of life is what I live, breathe, and do... retelling the magic through my eyes and my camera.

TESTIMONIALS

Our session with Marley was effortless. She made us so comfortable and wanted us to just be exactly how we are, which I loved! It took any pressure off of us as parents with a baby because she said she wanted our baby to just be a baby, whatever mood that was 😆 The family pictures we got will be treasured forever! They came out better than we could’ve ever imaged. We love Marley and will always recommend her!!

- Megs

Choosing Marley to be our photographer for our wedding was by far the best decision of all. Working with Marley was an absolute delight; she is fun, easy-going and most of all, very professional. She has wonderful ideas and is very open to working with any ideas you have. Marley captured so many precious moments and photos we will always treasure and love. Thank you Marley!

- Tina & David

Marley has an eye for capturing the beauty in the imperfect and day-to-day moments, with an attention to detail that is unmatched. She ensures you have the smiling “perfect” moments, but also the little ones in between that make your family uniquely yours. She makes you feel like your best friend is visiting while she snaps natural photos, all while rolling with the unpredictability of toddlers and babies. No stiff posing, just gentle direction; and she always produces the most magical of photography. I cannot imagine having anyone else document our growing family, both on special occasions, and in the everyday moments.

- Morgan

Our time spent with Marley cannot be put into words, we loved every minute of it and most of all the way she seamlessly captured the essence of our family. These photos made me tear up when I got them... I can't even begin to imagine how I'll feel about them in 10, 20, 30 years.

FAQS

Will you travel to Calgary?

Yes, I travel to Calgary for sessions! The only stipulation is that the highest package needs to be booked, as it covers my travel fees.

Do I need to purchase prints from you?

I guarantee all products ordered from me and I'd be happy to build an album for you! But, you're free to take your photos and print them wherever you like.

Which package is right for me?

For family & newborn sessions, I offer three different packages. The smallest package is comparable to a mini session and comes with 8 high resolution images. These sessions are only available at certain dates throughout the year.

The second tier package comes with 20 images and it is for clients who want dreamy photos, but want to stay close to Lethbridge.

The top package exists to make all of your photo dreams come true... it includes ALL digital images from the session (usually around 100), travel throughout southern Alberta, and a handmade photo book!

What is your cancellation policy?

Each session / wedding needs a deposit to hold the date. Deposits can be refunded only in an emergency situation. (For weddings, the deposit will only be refunded if the date is re-booked with a new couple.)

Reschedules sometimes occur in bad weather or for illness. All clients are granted one reschedule, but after that they are subject to my discretion and not guaranteed.

Do you offer payment plans?

Payment plans are available for weddings and top tier package.

How far in advance do you take bookings?

Up to one year.

If I order a smaller package, can I purchase more images later?

Yes! Your package will include a set number of images but you are welcome to purchase more. Also you don't have to buy more instantly, your gallery stays up for a year and in that year you can purchase more images at any time.

Do you do extended family sessions?

Sometimes. My top tier package includes families up to 10 people. Additional people are $75 per person. Also, please ensure that you are okay with a lifestyle approach before booking an extended family session.

What is your cancellation policy?

Each session / wedding needs a deposit to hold the date. Deposits can be refunded only in an emergency situation. (For weddings, the deposit will only be refunded if the date is re-booked with a new couple.)

Reschedules sometimes occur in bad weather or for illness. All clients are granted one reschedule, but after that they are subject to my discretion and not guaranteed.

How does booking a newborn session work?

All I need to know to save your session spot is your expected due date. Once the baby is born, you let me know - and from there, we nail down the exact date & time of your session. We can choose any time in the first month of your little one's life (as this is a lifestyle session rather than posed newborn). Most families prefer photos within the first 2 weeks.

Can I purchase a gift card?

Due to the intimate and collaborative nature of my sessions, it is difficult to work with people who are not familiar with my work or style. Gift cards can be purchased if the person receiving the gift cards has specifically requested a session with me.

Do you ever donate sessions?

Yes. If you work with a charity or are organizing a special event where you are looking for donations, feel free to contact me. I regularly donate to the Twins & Triplets Club of Lethbridge and have an ongoing project called { C o n n e c t e d} where families with member(s) on the spectrum can receive a free lifestyle session.

I would love to hear from you!
