I’m Maren, the girl behind the camera here at Maren Elizabeth Photography. I am a wife to Matt and mother to Emi, a Harry Potter nerd, cozy blanket connoisseur, and LOVE eating out (know any good places?). My style is bright, true to color, and authentic. In every session my goal is to create real moments that showcase your family’s personality, relationships, and love, to tell your authentic story. That means you should plan on a lot of playing and moving around during our time together!


Currently a grad school wife – Matt is studying Physical Therapy.

Matt and I collect board games and LOVE to play. We’ve got about 60. Need a recommendation? I’ve got you covered.

I’ve struggled with body image for much of my life, photography has been a HUGE part of my journey to self love.

I have a secretary, she’s 2 and her name is Emi. She doesn’t often tell me what she has planned for the day but it usually revolves around snacks and play time.
