ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER

Hi, Friend! I'm Megan, but my friends call me Meg!

I believe the best experiences come from someone you can connect with, so before I get to know you, I'd love to share a little about myself so you can feel assured that we're a good fit!

When I am not pouring my heart into my work, you can find me anywhere outdoors, hanging out in a coffee shop, or nuzzled on the couch snuggling with my son. I enjoy travel, cheesecake, pine trees, kittens, sleep, coffee, and above all family time. My happy place includes waking up early, wrapped in a cozy blanket with a fresh cup of coffee to watch the sunrise (preferably by a lake or in the mountains). I have a soft spot for outdoor, small intimate concerts, morning hikes, and kayaking.

I would be honored to document this milestone of your life. Don’t hold back, you only get this moment once. You be you, I’ll be me. Let’s create something real.

WHY JMEG PHOTOGRAPHY?

Because you deserve the best. By investing in quality photographs to commemorate this time in your life, you’re investing in the opportunity to stop time, and re-live these moments forever. I care so much about you and your family, and you deserve nothing less than an exceptional experience. I know that these photographs will be one of the few tangible things you'll have to look back on the memories from your life, and I do not take that lightly.

I am inspired by love stories, pretty light, and family life. I seek to capture the truest form of you. I crave raw emotion in all forms, from belly laughs to ugly cries, and everything in between. By taking a candid approach, I like to quietly step back and allow your story to unfold naturally, giving you an end-product that is real and authentic.

"Take care of all of your memories, for you can not relive them." - Bob Dylan

FAQ.

What sets you apart from other photographers? I am one of the most emotional people you'll ever meet. What this means is, I am emotionally connected to you as people, and to the memories captured during your session. I invest my whole heart into ensuring everything goes smoothly for you. This connection allows me to see things that others may over look; the unposed, in-between moments. I love to have fun and encourage you to be playful and relaxed while interacting with your loved ones. I use natural lighting as often as possible, and encourage you to interact as you would on a regular day, and provide guided posing as needed.

I offer a full-service experience, including a planning consultation, client-exclusive style guide, and a viewing + ordering appointment to help you choose the photographs you’d like to display in your home.

I'm not located in Rochester, do you travel at all? YES, I absolutely love to travel! I have an adorable little dependent, so I'd need some notice to get everything in order, but if there's a special location you're set on, nothing will deter me from joining you. There will be an additional fee to cover travel expenses and this will vary, depending on where you go and the time of year.

What is your shooting style? I love to be both interactive and discrete. I love getting to know you and interacting to ensure everyone feels comfortable in front of the camera. I will teach you how to pose, model and interact throughout throughout your session, but I'll also be a fly on the wall.

Do I have to order prints through you? You don't have to, but I appreciate it so much when you do! If you choose to purchase a digital collection, a print release is included which will allow you to print wherever you'd like. However, I do encourage printing through me, as it's the only way I can guarantee the quality and color consistency of the images, and I want nothing less than the best for you. xx

How long does it take to get my images back? You will receive your images at your viewing and ordering appointment which will take place 1-2 weeks after your session date. This is where you will see your images for the first time. Products do take an additional 3-5 weeks to be delivered.

What equipment do you use? I love my Canons! I always carry the 5D Mark 3, as well as a variety of lenses. Most days, I am equipped with: 50mm 1.2, 35 mm 1.4, and 85mm 1.8.

When is the best time of the day for a session? This depends on a lot of things. Most of my sessions take place on-location, so I usually recommend very first thing in the morning (I'm talking sunrise) or late afternoon, right before sunset. Once we determine the date of your session, I can give you the appropriate session time to assure the best lighting for your session experience.

If you're planning an in-home session, the timing is a little more flexible. In fact, giving the sun longer to rise can sometimes be a good thing, as it can mean more light inside. If we're organizing an in-home session, watch the light in your home during different times of the day and let me know if there's a special window of magic - dappled light on the bedroom wall or sunshine pouring in through the kitchen window. We can absolutely work with that.

Can you do mid-week sessions? Yes. I really enjoy working mid-week, as it means I can be home with my fiancé and babies on the weekend. : ) Afternoon and evening sessions are my jam and I can also rock early morning sessions - there's something enchanting about those first waking moments that cannot be matched by any other time of the day. (The best hours for a session is dependent on the season and the time the sun rises and sets in our part of the world. We'll chat logistics when you book.) If you have a day of the week or specific time that's best for you, please ask - we'll see what we can work out.

Can you do parties or events? I sure can. Send me a message and let me know what you have in mind.

Do you photograph births? YES! In fact, it is my specialty and one of my favorite things to document. If you are interested in documenting your birth story, you can find more information on my birth story services here!
