I have loved digital paintings for a longtime. There’s something classic and timeless about a painting on your wall, especially a family portrait. Starting today, I am offering digital paintings for sale in two different categories. First for the first time, I am offering my landscape and fine art photographs for sale. They will only be available as paintings. Second, I am offering family portraits for sale as paintings. These are paintings that are fine art and only available on fine art canvas for display.

The photo below is Crown Point High School’s football field taken at sunset, and is the first photograph available. I will be adding additional painting over the next several days and weeks. To see what is available you can check www.photos.mjphotos.net/paintings for the latest fine art landscape photos available. I will also be posting some family, children, and senior paintings to the family galleries. I will be taking requests for anyone who is interested that I have already created portraits for as well as new portrait sessions. You can call me at 219230-6440 or email at michael@mjphotos.net to request a painting.

What do you think? Let me know in the comments, or on Facebook or Twitter.

I have just finished updating my high school senior website. It was my goal to create a stand-alone website that is for high school seniors. I also wanted to make it a little more mobile friendly. Please, check it out and give me some feed back.

Something for Families that Love MJ Photography

Those of you out there that I have photographed your wedding, child or family in any way and loved the experience. I mean loved it so much that the next time you need a photographer you wouldn’t think of looking anywhere else. I have something for you, it’s the new MJ Photography Family Premier Membership. As a member you will no longer pay creation fees for as long as you are a member. You will also get early notification to special events and promotions along with many other benefits as I come up with them.

There’s Only a Limited Number Available

The Premier Family Membership is a limited offer. I can only offer it to 20 families. Once you are a Premier Family Member though you can share the membership with your children as they start their own families. For example, you are a member and your oldest child is getting married, as soon as you know contact me and your child’s family will be Premier Members as soon as they are married. You will still be a member. Once the original 20 memberships are gone, the only way to become a member is to get it from your parents.

All For Just $500.00

You get creation fees for life for your family and your children’s families all for $500.00. Today my creation fees are $140.00 for a basic portrait session and this doesn’t include any extra bonuses that I may add at later dates. So, if you love MJ Photography and wouldn’t consider anyone else photographing your family call me now at 219-230-6440 before they are all gone.

In addition to may other events through the summer every year Chesterton’s European Market has their Pumpkinpalooza on Halloween weekend. The kids get to trick or treat at the vendors booths, decorate pumpkins, and go on a hayride in the park. The Pumpkinpalooza is the last outdoor market of the season, which will be starting again the first weekend of May. It’s hard to believe, but that’s right around the corner.

While putting this video together I couldn’t help but recall the sights, sounds and especially the smells of the Market vendors. This coming season will be my 4th season at the market and I can’t wait. At the risk of being redundant I’ll say again, the smell of the food vendors alone is worth the trip. I challenge you to walk through the market and not eat something. There’s also live entertainment supplied by some great local musicians. You can find out more about the vendors, food and otherwise at their website www.chestertonseuropeanmarket.com.

Models Needed for a New Baby Program

I am putting together a baby program and I am looking for women who are in their 5th to 8th week of pregnancy and infants 12 months or younger to serve as models. All models will receive portrait art as compensation and may be included on my website and in my portfolio. Please call me at 219-230-6440 for more details.

Help Spread the Word

You might be thinking, well that doesn’t apply to me, my kids are all grown up. I don’t know about you, but I’ve seen a number of new babies in my Facebook feed and I’m sure you have as well. How cool would it be if you passed this on to a friend of yours that just had a baby or just announced they are expecting. Just let them know you’re thinking about them and you care. It won’t cost you anything and it won’t cost them anything. You get a stronger friendship and they get great baby portraits. Maybe they’ll even send you a photo!

Only Available for a Limited Time

This offer is only available for a limited time. I can only take 7 babies and 2 or 3 expecting Moms. As followers of my MJ Photography whether through my blog, Facebook, Twitter or elsewhere, you are getting the first opportunity to take advantage. I will publish this exclusively for my faithful followers for the next two weeks, after that I will open it to the general public. Therefore, if you want to take advantage or know of someone who could benefit, please let me know. Call me at 219-230-6440 I’m looking forward to hearing from you and especially excited about a new baby photography plan.

Again please call me at 219-230-6440 for more details.

This past summer I had the got to meet Taylor and create her senior portraits. I just recently found out that she is not only beautiful but very smart! Taylor is officially the class of 2012 Valedictorian at Hanover Central! So, to a very bright and pretty young lady congratulations, I know you will do great things.

Me Behind the Scenes.

February 3, 2012

Back in early December we were delighted to welcome Alexis into our family. I was especially honored to photograph the wedding, helping them preserve their special day forever. I had an assistant with me and I had him get some photos of me working with Alexis and Martin. I thought I’d share a couple of them with you, so here you go. For the record I was also in the wedding so I am a little more dressed up than I would normally be photographing a wedding.
