Heart of it all Photography bio picture
  • Heartfelt Welcome!!

    Hello! This is me! I started my photography business in Turkey. I had a love for photography and had some wonderful friends willing to sit in front of my lens while I learned more about my style of photography. I wanted something to watermark my images, so I went with the basic plan ... initials. m.j.c. photography.

    To this day, I still like the simplicity of the name, but there are so many people with the same initials and already branded their photography in that way.

    A few months back I attended a Shot Party in St. Louis. I heard 2 of my favorite photographers speak at this conference, Bobbi + Mike. They were awesome, just like I knew they would be. They spoke of making memories or heirlooms for people. That one day their client's great grand children would look back at their photography and see them as they were when they were young, free, in love ...

    They didn't necessarily say something that I didn't already know, but they said it in a new way. In a way that just struck me ... this is ALL about the client. These pictures showcase the LOVE people have for each other. Whether they are engagement , a newborn baby , family pictures, senior pictures, it doesn't matter. The person (or people) in front of the lens is the HEART of a family.

    I went home that night thinking ... and thought some more ...

    Then I thought, the heart of it all ... is YOU!

    I promise that when we're together for a photo shoot ... you're my family. We aren't going to just sit in front of the lens and smile. We are going to go out and have fun! We are going to pretend that you are in a reality TV show and YOU are the star. We're going to photograph you having fun with your family or significant other. We are going to have an amazing time together and make memories that you will keep forever.

Project 52 : Three

Week 22 | Three

I selected this them for this week because it was my 31st birthday. I was also hoping to complete my first 1/2 marathon. 13.1 miles. However, I wasn’t able to get a bib for the marathon and then even if I had … we had a tornado go through our area and the marathon was cancelled. Wah wah.

Anyway, I was looking through my pictures from our Memorial Weekend trip. I had been hiking with my family and found this gem! Love it!

I’m a slacker!!

Hi Friends – I’m sooo far behind on Project 52 and I need to do a blog with the incredible cuties I’ve photographed last month. Oh boy, that sounds bad. Last month. Where is time going???

It’s been an insane few weeks. I’ve had crazy back to back to back weeks and weekends.  Including Mother’s Day and my baby girl’s 2nd birthday! Which … happen to fall on the same day this year. 🙂

My mother and Grandmother have been in town for the last week.  Then over the weekend my husband’s entire family came to celebrate with us as well! It’s been a great time with lots of friends and family … it also means a lot of pictures and running behind!!

I promise to catch up soon … but for now I wanted to leave you with one quick shot. My hubby took this for me on Mother’s Day. 🙂
