The idea is not to live forever, but to create something that will.
— Andy Warhol

Hey there!

It means so much to me that you have been here long enough to want to find out more about a photographic experience with me.


close your eyes…

and think about the best times you have with your family. What do you see? How do you feel?

Let’s turn your everyday moments into cherished memories that you can sit and reminisce over for years. That’s why I’m here.




Minimum of 30 high resolution images available via digital download

10 5”x7” fine art photographic prints of your choice




Get in touch to talk about your story, and the moments you would like to remember forever.

I’d love to hear from you ❤


Some frequently asked questions…

What happens after I book?

After you book in your session, I’ll send through a question sheet and I’ll give you a call to chat more and get to know each other a little better. I’ll ask a few questions that will give me more details about your family and this will help to determine what part of your everyday life you would like to have captured.

Tell us more. What do you actually do during the session?

I’m not a fly on the wall. I talk a bit too much for that! I’m more like a friend that’s dropped by for a cuppa and can’t help but pull out my phone (camera!) to take some sneaky photos of your brilliant selves!


We feel a little shy and uncomfortable in front of the camera. Will you tell us what to do?

I don’t ask you to do anything that will challenge the authenticity of your personality. I want you to be yourself. I want you to visualise the moments that make you smile. Please feel free to just relax and be present with each other in that moment. As well as capturing the natural moments as they unfold, I may give you some direction throughout the session if need be.

Would you still do our session if we live too far away?

Yes! Get in touch and we can chat more about it. I service Melbourne and surrounds. Depending on where, a travel fee may be added.


How many photographs do you usually take?

I take the time to carefully select only the best images for you to absolutely fall in love with. Try to go with the flow and think quality, not quantity. Your final gallery will include a minimum of 30 images.

How long do we have to wait to see the photos?

No more than 4 weeks after your session, you will receive a password protected online gallery of all your images. After you have viewed the gallery and told me how much you adore them ;) I will send out your package.

When do I have to pay?

A 25% non-refundable retainer is due to confirm your date. The remaining balance is due 2 weeks prior to the session date.

Do you offer payment plans?

Yes. Please discuss this with me during our first meeting/chat. We can customise a plan to suit your needs.


“Marlene has done three sessions for us now and having her shoot our most personal and precious moments always feels so natural.

Marlene, you feel like a friend popping over (a very talented one at that!)
You’re professional, yet so relaxed and we almost feel like we've known you forever. But best of all, you have the ability to beautifully capture emotion in your photos.

We can't wait for the next big milestone for you to shoot!”


“It turned out to be an effortless (on our behalf!) experience and just such a lovely morning.

We were delighted with the photos, and were so impressed with how easily and effortlessly you moved around us.

We loved looking over the finished product and reminiscing about the day. The children also loved it!”

“You made us feel at ease straight away with how friendly and relaxed you were, and even got our fur babies in some of the shots!

The photos are exactly what we wanted and we were so happy with the overall experience!”
