Photographer Overview

I'm Misty Martin, sole owner, photographer, & editor for Little Marie Photographie, a natural-light photographer specializing in maternity and newborn art portraiture, serving Southern Alachua and Northern Marion County, Florida. Little Marie Photographie started out after the birth of my daughter, Jade "Little Marie", in September 2010. I've always been interested in photography, but didn't know how rewarding of a career it could be. I purchased my first Nikon (D50) DSLR in 2005 after my digital point and shoot died, but I still didn't know the capabilities of such a beautiful piece of equipment. After my daughter was born, it hit me like a ton of bricks when I realized she had changed and grown so much in the first month of her life. I was determined to put all fears aside and hit the ground running learning the ins and outs of my camera and the business. The more I practiced, the more I fell in love with photography. And with that, I was determined to to pursue this amazing artistic outlet, whether it remained a personal hobby or blossomed into a wonderful profession. I was determined to capture every cherishable moment of daily events and relive vicariously through those photographs... and that's when Little Marie Photographie became a "twinkle" in my eye. I'm a firm believer in self-education. Everything I have learned regarding photography has been through lots of reading of books and websites, workshops, trial and error (both with my camera and with my editing), and through talented photographers (especially my mentor, Jaime Swanson of Sweet Serendipity Photography) who were willing to share their wealth of knowledge. You will always find in my bag my: Nikon D600 DSLR with my 50mm 1.4, my 35mm f-1.8 & my 50mm f-2.8 macro. I love all different types of photography, but my passion is newborn art portraiture. I am a full-time working mommy to a beautiful little girl and a wife to my amazing high-school sweetheart. I graduated with my Bachelor's of Design in Architecture and Master's of Arts in Urban and Regional Planning from the University of Florida, {GO GATORS!!!} and I have now returned to the University of Florida as a staff member in the Division of Housing & Residence Education. Pregnancy and the newborn stage are such magical moments that pass by all to quickly for families. Little Marie Photographie ensures that those quickly fleeting moments are documented and memories preserved. Contact me today about scheduling your portrait session.
