“When life gives you rain, make puddlegrams”

Hi, I’m Marianne Hope and I have the best job in the world; photographing people, lifestyle and destinations. My speciality is seeing beauty in everything in a simple, creative, real but positive way.

While I’m originally from Norway, I currently live just outside Amsterdam, The Netherlands, where I live a confusing multi-lingual life with my German king, two princes and a little princess. I’ve been given many opportunities to travel and have developed a unique way of capturing the places I visit – especially with my mobile phone – while sharing my experiences with my social media following.

When it comes to portrait- and family photography, my goal is to preserve beautiful and precious moments in time. If you have a special occasion or you simply want to capture your loved ones as they are today, I can give you something to treasure and enjoy always and forever.

As a recognized Instagram influencer I have a strong follower base and my work has been featured in a number of publications and exhibitions around the world, such as:

socially. me.

followers on Instagram

practically. me.


I specialize in portraying people using open spaces and natural light. My goal is to achieve a free and natural setting where my subjects feel comfortable and familiar. I want to capture the real you, your personality and your natural style.

I have a special passion for interior-, food- and product styling and photography. I love the creative challenge of hands-on styling, of creating lifestyle art and eye-catching photo layouts. I use my home for a great number of these pictures, but I also do on-location shooting.

My travel related work is influenced by my extensive international experience through frequent traveling and through having lived in Germany, USA, Norway, Switzerland and currently in The Netherlands.

I seek to capture the essence of a city, noticing the architectural details, the people living there, but also the raw landscape and pure nature of the places I visit. Through my company SeeMyCity I get to visit and photograph cities around the world through the mobile lens.
