I had an opportunity to capture photos for my good friends extended family. It's one of my absolute favorite families I enjoy getting in front of the camera because they are naturals! It was 3 generations of fun, energetic, and loving personalities! Photographing a big group of people can be intimidating, but when you have a crowd like them it just flat out more fun! It is so amazing to witness the connection between siblings, mother, and then to see the generations all in one photograph. These are the memories families must hold on to forever. The sweetest moments are watching the pure love the grandparents have in photos with the grandkids. Funny enough, those heartfelt photos always make great gifts too. Thank you to Maldonado, Harris family and of course to Mr & Mrs. Walker for the booking the session with MNJPHOTO! You all ROCKED!
Today I had the pleasure of photographing Heather Parker for the cover of her new album, Allergy Reality. The album is a compilation of groovy tunes that educates children how to find and identify allergens in their food. I gave the album a listen, and I have to admit it, the songs are catchy! I couldn't help but hum and sing them as I cleaned my house the other day.
For this session, the key to photographing Heather was getting the lighting right. When working with a solid color background, the lighting has to be perfect. I'm happy to report that her pictures came out great.

In the world of milestone photography, graduation portrait sessions simply buzz with positive energy. The pride, and sense of accomplishment, that my subject feels come through in every shot.
I am honored that Lexi's has chosen me to record a significant achievement in her life, and I pray her hard works continues to pay off for years to come.
I just love, love, love working with longtime couples. The Pattersons have been married for 20 years, and their chemistry is just as strong as the day they met. They were a breeze to photograph, and I enjoyed hearing their perspective on what it takes to make a marriage work long-term. No one is perfect, but these two are certainly perfect for each other!
Having these two in front of the camera was a fantastic experience! Beau and Bella are a bundle of blue eyes, wispy blond hair, and chubby cheeks!
As nap time approached, I had to speed up the shoot. Even though I have experience in working with kids, I must give credit to the twins; they were amazingly cooperative, and their brilliant personalities came through in each of the photos.
They've earned that nap!
The Alexander family is one of my repeat families. I've been their family photographer for the past five years, and each session is just as exciting as the first. In fact, it still feels like it was just yesterday when I took photos of Jalen's first birthday.
In today's session, I have to give credit to the power of props. Good props (in this case we're talking about a football and some birthday cake) do wonders to bring out the play, energy, and personality of a child. Jalen and his parents had a blast, and so did I.
The Jones family booked a Fall Mini Session with me, and boy did we have fun. I took family portraits photos as well as a few extra shots to celebrate Olivia's third birthday. The kids really liked the part where I had them throw leaves in the air. Who doesn't love that?
It's that time of the year where the leaves start to change colors, and the outdoor temperatures are crisp and refreshing!
Take advantage of the Fall MNJ Photo Mini Sessions. These short photography sessions are the perfect opportunity to capture portraits that feature amazingly colorful backgrounds!
Fall photos also make great Christmas cards to send loved ones.
