"A good photograph is one that communicate a fact, touches the heart, leaves the viewer a changed person for having seen it. It is, in a word, effective.” - Irving Penn

MJ Photographics specializes in headshots and portraiture, helping individuals, couples and families capture memories and celebrate life and giving professionals the visual tools needed to market themselves. All of my portraiture and headshot sessions are conducted outside or in a location with lots of natural light. I prefer this to working in a studio because I find working on location makes clients more comfortable and relaxed than in studio where they’re often reminded that they’re in front of a camera. On outdoor shoots I often spend time walking from one location to another with clients, giving me time to get to know you which makes for more genuine images. I prefer natural light because it is flattering on everyone and generally makes for an easy shoot that’s not broken up with changing lighting setups. I like to make my shoots relaxed and completely client focused without interruption so we can capture the best photos of you!
