your portraits

Celebrate this beautiful moment
for a lifetime....

I offer bold yet beautiful portraits for families that want to stand out among their friends and loved ones. My timeless portraits represent a family’s elegance and mutual love for one another. My secret is finding the real moments a family shares and using my years of experience to leave you guys smiling and eager for your portraits. It’s really important to me that everyone is comfortable and having fun so that the memories of the shoot are just as incredible as the images themselves. I do this by making sure the whole family is engaged just enough to capture these perfect moments with the just the right lighting and angles.

Once everybody starts to have fun, that’s when I can capture the most authentic, warm, beautiful moments. My goal is the happiness of my clients and exceptional pieces for you to show off.

ABOUT
MARK

04

HEY! I'm Mark....

I started my photographic journey as a guitarist serving with the United States Marine Corps Band. Since you can’t really march a guitar, I was handed a camera and told to photograph the band during parades and ceremonies.
After being told my pictures looked “nice but don’t tell a story” every time I would show them to my Staff Sergeant, I began to learn how to capture small, emotional moments, designed to be treasured for a lifetime. Now, I am obsessed with capturing these moments.

This is why a photo session with me isn’t just any normal photo session.

It’s an experience that renders beautiful, natural, and emotional portraits that you can’t help but display in your home and pass down through the generations.

"Professional & Easy Going"

“It’s not everyday one can find a photographer like Mark. The minute I met Mark I was put at ease. Mark is laid back, professional and easy going. His personality translates beautifully in the images he captures. Our session was brief, beautiful and all together stress free. We had the kind of session any family desires. Mark worked well with my two children and over zealous pup. I cannot express how happy I am with our photos. Our family will treasure our pictures for years to come. I hope when we are ready for an updated photo session Mark won’t be too far away!”

LIZ ZILMER LESIEWICZ

"100% Would Recommend"

“The family pictures we hired Mark for, were the third time we’d hired him. My daughter’s senior pictures were amazing, making it easy to decide to fly him to New Orleans, LA for her wedding two years later. For this trip, however we also arranged two additional photo shoots. Our location family photos, taken in Historic Algiers Point Louisiana (across the Mississippi from New Orleans) and a shoot with our three dogs, one of which we’d had 17 years and were putting down in the near future. The family photo shoots were fun, colorful and Mark’s ability to see the end result through the lens, still amazes me. Great photos are one thing, but we keep hiring Mark because he’s a honest family man with his priorities in line. As a Marine, he will furthermore, get the job done when he says as well. 100% would recommend to ANYONE.”

"Extremely
Fun!"

“Mark was extremely fun and easygoing. He had a lot of great ideas that turned out better than we could have imagined. He does his research about each location and knows exactly what to shoot and when to get the best outcome! My wife and I are really awkward in front of a camera, and it was really easy to work with Mark while he took our photos. We currently have 5 different photo canvases from our photo shoots with him all throughout our house.”
