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.

Lettrick Family

A month ago a Facebook friend, whom I’ve never met, suddenly lost her daughter. Her daughter, was just a few months older than my Sweet Pea.  And even though I never met her, this incident shook me to my core. It put everything into perspective … when Abigail is driving me crazy because she keeps calling my name, without any real reason … I think about my friend how she would give anything to hear her daughter’s voice. And it makes me stop, take a deep breath, and hold her as long as she’ll let me.

It also made me want to capture every single moment that we spend together.  So I offered a give-a-way on my Facebook page.  I had the joy of meeting Lydia, Chloe, and Mike.  An absolutely adorable family who remind me a lot of my family … loving and loyal.

Happy New Year!

What an amazing year!  I don’t even know how to thank you for allowing me to be apart of your year.

I had the opportunity check a few items off my photography bucket list including a ‘trash the dress’ session and I had the privilege of photographing a birth.  Even though that was 5 months ago, I still remember the rush of excitement and emotions.

I shot a couple of girls who were waiting on their daddy to come home from a deployment, I photographed a family before having to say good-bye, and I had the honor of shooting a homecoming.

There were so many amazing shoots this year, so many emotions, and so much love.  It reminds me every day why I love my ‘job’ and why I do what I do. I can’t image doing anything else …

Shoots I would like to accomplish next year:

  • Surprise proposal
  • Underwater session
  • Ballerina / Dance session
  • Silhouette project

Thank you again for allowing me to share these special moments with you.

Here is a brief look at our time together. <3

Lana was so nervous about walking down the aisle.  Not because of what it meant … because of the attention. I totally get that! But as soon as she reached Chris … all is perfect.
