Hi, I'm Marina

I am an on-location, natural light, fine art portrait photographer, specializing in generations and family photography.

I am a Russian, Who was born and raised in Estonia. At the age of 20 years, I moved to the USA.

One day I am planning to write a book about my life, but not right now :-)

Right now- I am a busy mom to 5 kind, beautiful, fantastic daughters, and a busy small business owner to two different businesses.

Running two businesses and being a busy mom taught me the value of mine and everybody else's time. I get it. We don't have time to slow down and breathe. But, PLEASE, stop!

Stop and enjoy your family, your kids, your grandkids, your loved one. In about 10- 20 years we will not remember why we did not have time to go camping or just for a walk on the beach. We will just remember that we did not go. We will have no memories. Slow down. Stop. For a minute, hour, few hours.

Let me help you to make memories. Let me help you to "celebrate "you NOW. Let me bring your family together… Naturally. Surround yourself with those, which will make you happy.

I put my entire heart into what I do and would be honored to photograph any of the special moments of your life.

My clients called me "kids whisper ". For some magical reason, they are drawn to me. Maybe it's my accent or maybe they feel my genuine desire to connect with them. At the shoot, the family could be moving to the next photo location, and they think I'm not watching… But sometimes I get the best photos in those "between" moments. Little smiles, a twinkle in their eyes, small tickle, special look, tight hug, or just a simple high-five. It's all real. Real connections. Your eyes cannot hide real love.

If you live in Wells, Kennebunk, Kennebunkport, Ogunquit, or York, Maine, or just visiting or vacationing, contact me to see how I can help you with creating memories. 

 I cannot wait to create wonderful and life-lasting memories with you! Contact me now!
