My home studio is located for only 5 minutes walk from Ware town centre. Having a studio in our home with a nice garden has many advantages over high street locations. If the weather is nice, children can enjoy a good play around in the garden with various toys and come back to the studio with fresh energy.

I fell in love with photography 13 years ago when I got my first professional digital camera.  I was eager to learn everything about my new passion, and to pursue my creative roots.  5 years later at the end of 2009, Marietta Photography was founded. 

Since then, I have been working as a portrait photographer, specializing in maternity, newborn and family photography.  In 2016 I joined the BIPP as a Provisional Member and started working towards my Licentiateship.  In that year I was awarded Runner Up for Provisional Photographer of the Year at the BIPP South East Regional Awards 2016.

My work with the BIPP paid off in 2017 when I gained a Licentiate Qualification for my Portrait photography.

My portraiture is modern, relaxed and very informal with lots of fun involved.  On top of my portraiture work, I also shoot weddings and environmental/lifestyle portraits in and around Ware and Hertford.
