MJ Photography Studio | Maternity


What a wonderful occasion!  It is filled with joy and excitement.  There is a sense that you and your baby are one.  It is a moment that you will cherish forever, and it deserves to be recorded properly.  That’s where we step in.

We decided if we were going to do this we were going to do it differently.  We knew we wanted to capture the emotion and joy of the moment.  We did not want to do it like the other photographers and shoot everything against a black and white backdrop in a cold and sterile studio.  Those photos are fine, but let’s face it… You can get those anywhere.  We want your photos to be different.  The easiest way to do that is by shooting outdoors or in the intimate setting of your home.  What a wonderfully different look.  They make for very unique photos, yet they still retain the artistic feel.  Most moms are completely surprised at some of the photos that we manage to capture in their own homes.  We can also capture really unique shots outdoors as well.

The best part is, because we are not confined to a studio which allows us both to shoot, we get more photos to add to your gallery. 



First we meet and talk about what you want and what you expect. It allows you to ask questions and have plenty of time to get them answered.  It also helps us to understand your vision and get to know you. Spending time together develops the trust that we need to do a good job for you.  It also allows us to develop a plan for the session.  We can come to your house or meet somewhere in town (Starbucks).  Then we schedule a time and a place for the shoot. We have portable background equipment suitable for indoor work should a background be needed.  Most people prefer the intimate settings of their own home, or outdoor settings like a park. Other props are available depending on the type of shoot. The choice is yours as we will travel anywhere within the San Angelo area. 

Afterwards, allow up to 2 weeks processing time for standard portraits. Once your entire gallery is ready we will email you to let you know. Just log into our website and find “your gallery”. 

Your custom gallery will remain online for 30 days to allow you to share, and purchase. After that, they will be removed. Should you need more time, time it may be requested at an additional cost.
