cincinnati, ohio family photographer

Make the time and prioritize family photos so you get IN them instead of taking them.

Have your memories and avoid “parent-guilt”

Do you dream of wall-worthy portraits for your home?

A laid back experience that allows you to
BE PRESENT and have fun. All of the hugs, kisses, races and peek-a-boos will be captured, don’t you worry! I’ve got this..

WITH A STRESS-FREE EXPERIENCE!

Are you too busy running your kids around from activity to activity? 

Are you nervous about how the kids will act? (I’ve got some tricks!)

Don’t know what to wear? (I’ve got a guide for this!)

Think about it....

Do your kids have a photo of them with you that’s not an attempted selfie?

Do your kids have a photo of you and them that they can show off and say, “That’s me and my mom?” 

I know YOU'RE BUSY, so I’ve made the process super easy for you!

Are you too busy running your kiddos from activity to activity?

You will get the photos you dream about AND they won’t be stuck in a never ending camera roll.

IT'S NO ACCIDENT THAT YOU'RE HERE.

You came here for a reason.

You don’t always have to be the photographer (that’s where I come in!) You should be IN photos too so your kiddo can say, “That’s me! AND my MOM!”

REASONS TO book A FAMILY SESSION

YOUR MEMORIES AND LEGACY MATTER.

You can’t just go back and re-live them, photos are a way to freeze those moments in time. Don’t let your memories live in a camera roll where you rarely scroll ALL THE WAY BACK to see them.

Fun and Laid Back Experience

Relax and show up! Have a stress free time with your family while I capture those moments for you!

Wall Worthy Portraits 

A done-for-you solution for the walls in your home. Order prints and albums from your gallery and enjoy the photos from your session(s) every single day!

You can order prints straight through your online gallery, and I can assist you with ordering larger canvases and albums to display in your home!

Marie was very responsive in getting us ready. The venue was perfect and we were met with enthusiastic smiles and wonderful ideas! We got the photos amazingly fast and they were fantastic! We really enjoyed working with Marie Day Photography!

"We got the photos amazingly fast and they were fantastic!"

-HEATHER D.

She told us exactly how to pose and was so patient with our kids. Normally my son gets so frustrated with me taking photos, but with Marie, he thought it was fun game.

"She was so professional and put us all at ease."

-ERIN B.

Marie was wonderful! She was quick and prompt in her responses, helping to coordinate a time and place for us to meet. During the shoot, she and her husband Scott were so wonderful and so good with our kids!

"She was quick and prompt in her responses, helping to coordinate a time and place for us to meet."

-MARYAM B.

...and her husband, Scott. Marie always finds a way to show everyone’s personalities in the photos.

"Absolutely love and enjoy working with Marie.."

-MEGAN M.

I was very happy with the quality of the photos and how bright they were. I would definitely recommend booking with Marie!

"Marie was very responsive and gave us helpful tips and reminders before our session. "

-MONICA D.

She did a great job following COVID protocols and made us feel very comfortable. Our newborn was pretty fussy but she was able to capture some really great moments. The hardest part was deciding which pictures to print and put into frames!

"We had a great experience with Marie Day Photography! She was very flexible and easy to work with."

-LIZ M.

Like you made me feel glowy and I haven’t felt like that really at all since being pregnant. You made it so fun and relaxed and I just am thankful for you!

"Thank you so freaking much, Marie."

-MARY PAGE D.

She was very complimentary throughout the session which gave us a good boost of confidence in an unnatural situation. Everything was so easy from booking to detailed directions to the location and the laid back atmosphere you created, we were very comfortable. The experience was great and easy and the pictures turned out great! There were plenty of photos to choose from and the lighting was perfect. I love the pictures that show off the bright natural light and your photos are just that!

"Marie was friendly, smiley and put us at ease! 

-STEFANIE O.
