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.

High School Senior portraits are about capturing the spirit of youth as a young man or woman is about to set off into the real world. Every photograph captures a tiny moment in that time showing a smile or youthful good looks and style. I recently photographed Logan’s senior portraits and in the process I gave him a list of questions to answer. He selected his favorites and let me interview him. The results of that interview are shown in the following slideshow. I think this is pretty powerful, imagine him watching this 20 or 30 years from now. Not only seeing but also hearing.


Today’s photo is a young bride who was willing to put her wedding dress on and let me practice. ┬áThis is one of my favorite close up portraits we made. We created it at the main branch of the Hammond Public Library.

Today’s photo is more traditional. There are no textures or color effects added. This is pretty much how I envisioned the shot when first pressed the shutter. I like how the lines in the bricks lead your eyes right to the subject. I also like the warmth and the coloring.

Today’s photo is from an engagement session for Mike and Michelle. They are a really great couple and I had a lot of fun photographing their engagement as well as their wedding. What I really like about this photo is that the purple they are wearing really sets them apart from the mostly green background.

Today’s portrait is a high school senior in his football uniform.This is one that I overlooked back when I first photographed him. As I was going back through them looking for a photo, it caught my eye. I added some texture and gave it a whole new attitude.

Today’s photo is Tiffany of the Duneland Chamber of Commerce. Come see Tiffany this summer at Chesterton’s European Market which I can’t believe is only a few weeks away. Opening weekend is Saturday May 7. I have been going for the past two years and can’t wait for this coming summer. The food vendors alone are worth the trip.

Today’s photo of the day was something a little different and fun. We had finished creating some great photos at the Radisson in Merrillville during The Times Bridal Show last year and were headed back to the booth. When we walked past the arcade I had to have a photo in there so I put her at the pinball game and quickly got this.
