MY NAME IS MARJORIE. I AM A PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER.
Originally from Brazil but raised as a NYC girl, I knew early on I belonged behind a camera.
Many cameras, film cartridges and megapixels later, my love of photography and my need to be behind a camera motivated me to start my own business.
What started out as a fun venture ten years ago, turned out to be a game-changer. I became empowered, more confident, and a portrait photographer by trade. The title fit like a glove and I became enthralled with my craft.
I have photographed just about everything, from pets to weddings, to a magazine cover, and though I enjoyed it all, NOTHING brings me more joy than photographing a stay at home mom who has put herself on the back burner for years and no longer feels attractive.
Transforming her into a supermodel for a day may seem superficial to some, but it's nothing of the sort. The experience I provide my clients has changed the way they see themselves and that's a legacy I am proud to leave behind.
This legacy is now displayed on her wall, and every time she walks into the room, she can remind herself of the strong, beautiful woman she is, and these portraits can now be passed on to a family member as cherished memories for years to come.
This is how my signature G.L.A.M. style of portraits came to be.
But whether a male or female comes to my studio, making people look their best in pictures is my gift.
I am a perfectionist and I won't rest until I get the shot that will make you look at yourself in a new way that leaves you confident and empowered. If that's all you know about me, it's enough to say you know me very, very well.
I invite you to an experience with me that will change the way you see yourself.
