Hi! I'm MJ and I've been in the photography industry for over 15 years now! I photograph newborns, and maternity all in my Chesapeake, Virginia studio. I've been featured in several print magazines and have won numerous awards for my newborn and maternity work. I am blessed to get to mentor and teach other photographers all over the WORLD!
I was also recently the ranked #1 in the state of Virginia as a top rated business.
NUMBER 1!!!! This was given to me based on my 5 star reviews on google and social media sites. That means the world to me. My actual clients, giving amazing reviews says a lot.
I have grown in this industry to capture timeless, classic looks for my clients, which is what I have become known for. I focus on my subjects to create simple, but stunning memories for you. I'm all about giving you something outside the box. GLAM is the name of the game when it comes to being in front of my camera.
I am a full service studio. I have a stunning client closet for your maternity and newborn needs. I provide professional makeup application at the studio, prior to your session time. I go out of my way to make you feel like a princess. You SHOULD feel gorgeous when you are in my studio!!
What if I told you I could take the BEST photograph of you that you've ever seen of yourself? What if I told you, I can make pregnant women feel beautiful? What if I told you that the newborn days fly by, but I can capture those moments flawlessly? What if I told you that I can create jaw-dropping images that, in 30 years from now, will be priceless? (Trust me on this one!)
What if I told you that's what I can do for you?
I absolutely LOVE what I do. My motto is do what you love, and you'll never work a day in your life. So, I invite you to come feel beautiful. I invite you to come create memories and be photographed with the ones you love the most. I invite you to come spend time with me and walk away with something to hang in your home that you want to showcase to the world.
So, who is MJ? I am the person that can stop time for you. I am a portrait photographer, and a damn good one at that.
