"Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord." Psalm 150

 

Hi! My name is Marina Ryan and I am a natural light photographer soon relocating to Tacoma, Washinton! I was born in Russia, and moved to the US with my family in 1989. I have lived in Rhode Island, North Carolina, Hawaii, and now stationed in Washington with my husband, Matthew, who is currently in the Army. I can still speak, read, and write in Russian….but you won’t notice an accent when I speak.

 I started photography as a hobby in 2011 and finally opened up my business in April 2013. I am self-taught; most of what I have learned has been through trial & error, books, and of course – Google. In May 2014 I was fortunate enough to be able to attend a Rachel Vanoven newborn workshop which has fueled my passion for newborn photography even more. There is still so much I want to learn! 

I am very passionate about what I do. Photography gives me a high, a huge adrenaline rush when I shoot. My goal is to always capture the moment and make a memory that will be cherished for the rest of your life. My style of photography is simple, clean, and classic and I wouldn't want it any other way!
