Baby Brown

I love coming back for newborn portraits for my maternity families. It feels like a bit of a celebration for me to get to see the precious babies and the families so full of excitement and love. There is no greater honor than having a returning client message me for these events.

I recently got a message from a mom that I took maternity pictures for in the Spring. They had welcomed a beautiful baby girl and were hoping for some lifestyle newborn portraits. Lifestyle newborn is all about capturing a family in their home. They are best done in the morning because that is when most homes have the best lighting. On top of pictures of parents and siblings loving on the baby, I try to capture portraits of just the baby.

Well, this day was dark and dreary. It actually harkened back the maternity session where ten minutes before the session the temperature dropped and beautiful blue skies turned very grey. Luckily, this time we were inside! Even with the grey skies outside, baby’s nursery had a beautiful big window and there was beautiful light in the family’s front room.

Big brother was definitely enamoured with his new sister and mom was excited about all of the bows! I was so happy to be able to capture these memories for the B Family and their precious baby girl. She will always be able to look back and know that she is well loved.

Congratulations Brown Family!

I didn’t have my first newborn portraits done until my third child was born. I offer affordable mini packages to help families with a limited budget enjoy this luxury. Contact me today to find out more!

Welcome to My World!

You have found MAJECK! I’m so glad you are here and exploring our little piece of the Internet. While our About us shares a little – I feel like a blog can share quite a bit more.

MAJECK is the brain child of several years of conversations between me (Mary Elizabeth) and my husband (James). As an IT and Networking guy in the Army, James went all over the world, including two tours overseas. When he got out, he worked for a few years in the Private Sector while I built my reputation as a consultant and garnered clients across the country. But we kept talking about the possibility of opening up a real shop… together. I recognized that my skill set made me unique – experience in Finance, Education, Marketing and Intellectual Property. However, his skill set combined with mine could make us stand out! And so, with a new year upon us we agreed to give this a go.

We also decided to combine a passion of mine – photography – into the mix. I had been using my skills for clients for a couple of years at this point, but hadn’t branched out to the part I loved the most – lifestyle. Sure, my friends and family lucked out but now was the time to really expand. I am so glad that I did.

Five days into the new year and I shot my first newborn session today. As a mom of three (and one on the way) these sessions are so beautiful to me. Capturing the joy of a family as they bring something new into their world. It’s an honor to be invited into that. I couldn’t wait to get home and edit a few just to surprise the family with some beautiful pictures.

So, as they enjoy their portraits of their newborn, I am working hard to enjoy this new endeavor of James’ and mine. Change is scary – but following your passion is worth it!
