Maddox Family – Oh! MG Photography: a session while on vacation in MI

Oh! MG Photography took a little vacation away from Phoenix, AZ and went back to Grand Rapids, MI for a few weeks to see family. I knew that while I was there I had to get some sort of shoot in!!

I’ve known Philicia since preschool. Like literally, we went to the same school pretty much up until college.  She got a real education though at Kendall College, and I just went to community college down the street.

But we both have a passion for photography so when I was home visiting MI with my family I knew I had to capture her little boy (who was turning 1 shortly after the shoot) to play with my new 80-200 mm lens that my amazing husband got me for my birthday.

Baby D was welcomed into this world last week. Gorgeous, calm, fresh, innocent baby D.

This little man is the reason I love doing first 48-hr sessions!

A Tea Party with the Levine Kids – Oh! MG Photography | Phoenix, AZ

I first met Heather when she was looking for a photographer to cover her oldest daughters birthday party. I have no recollection of how she was referred to me, but I’m so glad she reached out!

2 years later, here I am back at her house doing the cutest tea party shoot I could hope for. Not only was there one tea party set up, but three!  I adore the lifestyle approach I was able to put on this whole set up.

Just another gorgeous day here in Phoenix, AZ – the perfect cloud cover. Butttt… the humidity drove us inside more than once!

I showed mom and grandma some back of camera sneaks and they were OVER THE MOON excited about receiving these. I’m so hoppy I was able to capture these for you guys. Truly a blessing to be able to collect these memories for you! I love what I’m able to do with photography. Heather you and your mom (MIL?) are just the kindest people and awfully welcoming.

I may not offer Newborn sessions but I really love to visit families in the hospital! I offer Fresh 48 sessions in the Phoenix, AZ valley.  These sessions take place at the hospital while mom is still admitted and just before the journey home happens.

For more information on how book a Fresh 48 session, contact me! I’ve priced my sessions so that they may be gifted, affordably!! This is a great gift for someone expecting!!

I need your gorgeous family in front of my lens. -Oh! MG Photography, Phoenix, AZ

There comes a time every years where I need to create the perfect family for the perfect session so that I can have amazing marketing material and images I can blast on the internet (.. you can do that too for me!) and add to my portfolio. Not only this, but also carry out my 2015 mission statement of creating more households with professionally printed images.

THAT TIME IS NOW.

Now, the common misconception is that it’s FREE!

Everything is FREE and we all dance on rainbows and pet unicorns.

UNFORTUNATELY, I have a totally different concept and approach that I am pitching to you.

( you get what you pay for when it’s free!)

 You see, in 2015 I told myself that my portrait clients would walk away with MORE.

More tangibles in their hands & homes, more love in their hearts for their own family, and more understanding of what a good experience with a photographer is.

I’m seeking 3 really amazing families who are open, willing, and excited to pair up with me in this venture.

The value of this is .. well, it’s pretty high. Do you want to really know the deal you’re getting?

 

 

Oh! MG Photography 16x 20 Art Block

 

  • A 16×20 art block (very similar to a canvas, except easier on wallets)  valued at over $150 dollars.
  • a 4×6 proof book of your gallery, spiral bound together to throw on your coffee table, or just brag about any where you go.
  • 45% off your images in the print store for prints or digital files!
  • 10 low res images with watermarks for the internet.

On top of the discounts you’ll get on everything you walk away with – for every family you refer to me after they see your amazing images, you get $5.00 to Target or Starbucks. (because I love shopping and coffee, and you should, too.) You’ll receive the $5.00 gift card after they put down a deposit for their session.

 

 

Your cost? $150. (plus tax)

Aren’t convinced?

Well – I’m not expecting just anyone to need my services or think of this as a deal.

but food for thought:

My full sessions cost $300.00, and that includes nothing besides digital files.

This would easily cost a client $495.00 when attaching the a la carte items I’m adding in this session.

 

Post this to your wall, and if someone says they saw it on your wall and book, you get that gift card!

Today with my dad in town I decided now would be the best time to indulge in some sugar cookies and have fun while we make them, too. Ive never made successful sugar cookies, but this time I follwed a Martha Stewart recipe almost to the “T” & I think they turned out fabulous! Want that sugar cookie recipe? Here it is!

Day 21 : pre-monsoon season clouds

While up in Flagstaff, I captured these pre-monsoon season clouds. Amazingly goofy and  abundant in number.

Tip for Arizona photographers: go places even when theres a chance of rain. You’ll thank yourself.
