About Marie

Mom, wife, and font fanatic.

Most people are content using standard fonts and probably don’t even think twice about it, but not me. I currently have 371 (soon to be 374) fonts on my computer… yet, I swear my husband systematically deletes a few here and there “by accident”. I would share my favorites, but I don’t think I could commit to just a few.

My husband and I have a 5 year old boy named Heath. I get to fill my days with him singing silly songs, reading, and playing. He is quite a character and already he’s developed several catchphrases. If you ask him where he is going, 99% of the time he will say “To the little mountain with Jungle Pete”. For the record, I have no idea where the “little mountain” is and I didn’t know who Jungle Pete was until my husband clued me in a few weeks ago. Heath has also recently developed an affinity for doing belly flops in the pool. When he resurfaces, he will throw his hands up in the air and exclaim “I liked that!”… 37 times in a row.

I’m from the area, my husband is from Hawaii, and yet we both relocated to Westlake for his job. If that makes no sense to you, you’re not alone. Prior to the move, I was an elementary school teacher for many years. While I absolutely loved my job, I wanted to put more of a focus on raising a family once my son came along.

While I am no pro, I do love photography and when I had the opportunity to join Leigh’s team I jumped at the chance… literally, I jumped! As the studio manager, I am here to help Leigh with the behind the scenes business stuff so that she can devote more time to channeling her creative side.
