Hi, I’m Mary Jane but everyone calls me MJ. I’ve been capturing special moments for over 16 years as a family photographer. I am a mom of a gaggle of messy boys and that makes me fun and silly by default. If not, they would take over and destroy me, so I meet them at their own game. Because of that, I'm terrific at getting those giggly smiles on my photoshoots, and it is not beneath me to use my award winning fart noises to do so!
I treat each photoshoot like it's my last. These are the famous words of a freelancer and I have been one forever. When I am with your family, you will see that I carefully shoot fast and furious and "edit later". This is a skill that comes with years on the job and for me, it is one that I HAVE earned.
Kids have a short attention span and having a camera pointed in their face can be intimidating and draining, so I am terrific at moving quickly and keeping my shoots fun.
I have a beautiful 600 square foot studio space on my property that has endless possibilities. My studio style is classic and timeless for both newborn and family portrait work. My studio is outfitted with gorgeous lighting, handpainted backdrops, loads of newborn props, wraps and outfits. So bring your smiles and I will take care of the rest.
On my editing days, my husband catches me endlessly watching crime shows and jokes, "You know if this "photography thing" doesn't work out you maybe you can become a CSI detective." #dreams
Joking aside, after 20 years in the biz, Im pretty rock solid. See you at your next shoot.
