I help busy parents like you get beautiful family and maternity photographs you've always dreamed of. Timeless family photography is more than just a style of photography - it means that you will be able to relive the most precious memories of your littles for years to come.

"Very  talented  and  the photos  ended  up  so  stunning"

Hey mama!


I pronounce it Mursay but don't worry if you mispronounce it! I'm a Seattle born mother to one wild 3-year-old boy.  I'm so passionate about helping mothers like you create timeless, exquisite heirlooms to pass down for generations.
As a little bit of a toddler savante I love working with littles, be they shy, rambunctious, silly, or wild. Clients tell me all the time how helpful my preparation guides are, how I help their toddler come out of their shell, and how wonderful the real moments of play with their little ones are.

Precious Memories

The Woodhead Family

"help[ed] our little out of her shell"

We have a very particular toddler who shies away from new faces so we were worried what kind of photos we would get but omg they came out stunning! Mercae did such a wonderful job staying calm and helping our little out of her shell to get some wonderful memories in photos.

Mercae was communicative, kind, and lovely to work with. She handled photographing our busy 2 year old skillfully, and I'm so pleased with how our images turned out. Thank you, Mercae!
