It’s Okay to Be Nervous

I have a confession to make… I get crazy nervous when the time comes for our family portraits – or my maternity portraits. I worry about my outfit, the family all coordinating and if my makeup is going to look good on camera. Add to that… After over ten years of marriage I think my husband and I have managed not to be annoyed with each other for ONE of our annual portrait sessions. I know I am not the only mom that feels this way and I want to help my clients overcome it as much as possible!

Yesterday, I had a mom tell me she felt awkward in front of the camera. I get it… What looks best? Where should my hand go? Are my pictures turning out? I get it because I have been there.

And so… I created a Pinterest account for MAJECK! I am actively building out boards for inspiration for your next session? What do I wear? How should my hair be? What kind of makeup is best? How do I make sure that my kiddos are cute AND comfortable? I want to provide as many answers to your questions and moments for inspiration as I can so that when we get to picture day you are at ease!

Rather than send you out looking for your own inspiration – let me help! I have curated these boards and will continue to curate them so that when we are talking and planning your next session – you have the ability to point to a specific without hours of searching!

This is just one more way that I can support you as my client and as a person who is concerned with getting the best possible outcome from my services!

Hi and thanks for dropping by! I’m Mary Elizabeth, the Colorado Springs based photographer behind MAJECK (pronounced magic). I am so glad that you found me here and I can’t wait to work to tell your story. My whole life I have felt compelled to tell stories. I have been drawn to portraits and the stories they would tell for as long as I can remember.
