Get to know Marisa De Sousa 

Hi and welcome to MDS Photography, I am Marisa, the photographer behind MDS photography. I am a mother or 3 and a wife and we live in Oakham after living 10 years in Switzerland. I fell in love with photography about 5 years ago when I was handed my wedding photographs. I then dedicated myself to learn all I could about this Art that I love so much.  I believed and still do that I could make people feel emotions when they see the photographs  of their photo sessions. This is what I focus on when I am with you and your family. To freeze special moments and emotions that you would otherwise forget. Having my own children made me realise how important it is to record their milestones because with a blink of an eye they are adults.  A journey from Pregnancy to Baby, to Family is the journey I can help you to never forget.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call. 




MDS Photography is dedicated to delivering a professional and personalised experience. From the initial consultation to the final product, clients can expect a seamless and enjoyable process.



Marisa's artistic vision infuses every photograph with creativity and emotion, ensuring that each image tells a unique and captivating story.

Speech marks

My husband and I usually feel awkward in front of the camera, but Marisa has this really cool and cheerful personality that makes you feel like you’ve known her for years and being in front of the camera gets so much easier. Also I can’t pose, I just can’t, but with her I didn’t have to, just “move here, so that” and we’ve got amazing pictures. We ended up ordering extra pics besides the offered package and didn’t know which ones to pick 😊
