Do you ever feel like...

Don't worry-

                         that was me too. But after 10+ years of running a photo business, I've created resources that can take out the guesswork for you.

let's get started.

I'm Marina,

in salt lake city, utah.

a creative portrait photographer

After 10+ years of being a photographer, I’m pinching myself every day that I get to do what I love for a living. I create imagery for clients (and for fun) involving creative concepts focused on all things whimsical, colorful, feminine, and funky, and then I get to shoot them with incredible teams of collaborators.

Educating other photographers is something I’m so passionate about - I know how it feels to have unanswered questions in a community where people often keep their secrets all to themselves. If you’re feeling stuck, you’re in the right place. In my content you’ll find photography tips, editing tutorials, shoot inspiration, complete walk-throughs of my process, behind the scenes, client management, building marketing strategies to take your business to the next level and so much more. You’ll also be welcomed by the support of a growing community of creatives from around the world. 

I hope to help photographers unlock their creativity and learn that it’s possible to make art that’s inspirational, unique, and leads to a blossoming career.
