Michelle Jones Photography prides itself in being “family centered”
Because we truly believe in, and value, the importance of a memory and how it can serve as a moment frozen in time. Therefore, a large part of your experience will be focused on the connection you and your spouse have with your child.
I believe that photographing the beauty of motherhood and the story of your growing family is so incredibly special.
Every moment in a child’s life is precious, but as a mother myself, I know that those moments cannot last forever. I became a mommy through the gift of adoption twice, and when we met our oldest daughter just three days after she was born, I finally knew of the immense love that is spoken of when seeing your child for the first time. They become the center of your world, and every instance is one you want to remain in your heart forever. That joy and triumph are things that need to be celebrated and certainly preserved.
It’s a story that must be told.
I photograph motherhood in all its grace. My favorite is capturing the quiet moments in between that often times might be passed by. Whether she’s taking a second to grin at her growing bump or she’s marveling at the beautiful creation she’s holding in her arms, there is certainly nothing that compares.
I love everything about families who cuddle and play as if I’m not even there. These are the moments that are true.
Babies at each stage are captured in their parents’ arms – right where they belong. However, I also photograph baby alone, “unposed” in order to not take away from who they are at that moment in time. Whether a pure, brand new life or a a rosy cheeked toddler, I embrace the simplicity that is.
Your babies will only be this little once. Although I can’t keep your babies this small forever, I can make it possible for you to relive these moments through tangible photographs. These printed photographs will remind you of how perfectly your daughter fit into your arms or how your son’s face would light up the room when he shared his toothless grin. These photographs are proof of the most important and fulfilling gifts in your life that cannot ever be replaced. Therefore, I want nothing more for you to fill your home with the images we created so they can be cherished and admired for years to come.
