Marianne Rothbauer is the founder, photographer, and artist behind Rothbauer Studio.

As a professional photographer, Marianne has a passion for capturing emotion. Her approach and craft of storytelling in each image has led to a career with international experience. Outside of capturing special moments of couples and families Marianne’s clients include ad agencies, magazines, publishing companies, local businesses, and non-profit organizations.

When she’s not writing about herself in the third person, Marianne likes to spend time at the Cottage and exploring new restaurants. She makes a mean Lasagna and is also known for hoarding plants and cookbooks.

She is a daily To-Do list writer, Birkenstock wearer, potato lover and drives an orange VW Beetle named Frieda. (Hey, she is German after all.)

Her spare time is spent cooking, baking and photographing local business owners for OttawaNeighbours. Marianne lives in Ottawa with her husband Mike and her two dogs Jackson and June as well as a tabby-cat named Paul.
