Hello! My name is Marissa and I would love to tell you a little about myself!
I was born and raised in Michigan and am the middle child of seven. After graduating high school, I married my high school sweetheart and moved to California where he was stationed in the Marine Corp. We had an unexpected pregnancy but were absolutely thrilled to be welcoming a sweet little boy into our little family. We found out at 18 weeks he had Downs Syndrome and a few medical concerns including a heart defect. Our pregnancy from then on was filled with extra appointments to monitor our little Edward and began preparation for many months stay in the hospital since he would be having surgeries immediately. At 38 weeks, we went in for a routine check up and were told the heartbreaking news that our son's heart was no longer beating. I was induced and had him stillbirth June 17th, 2015. We were ready to be parents but instead came home with empty arms and broken hearts. We decided to get pregnant again right away. In September, we were pregnant again, this time with a little girl. A baby born after a miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant loss is referred to as a Rainbow baby. A rainbow is not a replacement but a glimmer of hope and happiness after the storm.
My children are the reason I became a photographer. Angels and Rainbows Photography, for my angel in heaven and my rainbow here with me. Wanting to capture every moment with our rainbow, Myra, I received my camera as a birthday gift and from there my passion grew. My long term goal for my business is to offer rainbow baby sessions and donate the proceeds to help other women and families who have lost children. Let me help you create everlasting memories with your family that you can cherish for ages!
