testimonials

“ Our home session with MJ was such a special experience. She made my partner and I feel so comfortable in front of the camera, which is such a lovely and refreshing skill to experience! I love that she’s also brilliant at capturing natural movement and light in her photos. The results are just stunning. These pictures are ones we’ll cherish forever! "

my approach

i need you to let go of everything you think this is going to be. take a deep breath and soak it all in. this moment is all there is. whether i’m helping to document you and your loved ones, the everyday, or a pivotal moment in your life; allow yourself to fully feel all emotions, live within the fleeting moments, embrace the stillness, the quiet.  i will be working to echo your truth. the more you ground and allow yourself to become embodied, the more true these photos will be for you. let it go and let it be. this is where the magic happens.

memory

i want to capture this moment in your lives and stop time. if for just a moment. these photographs are meant to be an experience, not just another thing to check off your list. these photographs will only increase in value over time as the images get passed down for generations. i’m passionate about capturing couples who believe in the value of meaningful, authentic photographs that will last a lifetime.

feeling

i go in with the intent of showing how it felt to be there. feeling is my guide and i make sure that the way i’m interacting, shooting, and editing is reflective of who my couples are and how things actually felt. thus, my photography style is undefined and varies moment to moment, day by day. thank you for letting me capture you and your experience as felt.
