jes' personal post : Why I believe in love
My mom and dad, Wendy and Charlie as most other people refer to them, started dating when I was just three years old, in December of 1992. My mom, a bad ass chick in her twenties, would go out and watch my dad's band.

Holiday photographs aren't just about the annual Christmas card, but capturing the love, spirit, and excitement of your own love, family, and the celebrations to come.
“Running a bit behind, we were looking for Yoshi’s bow tie!” Yoshi? Bowtie? Yes, Please! I love that this beautiful fur brother is excited to help his mum and dad welcome baby Zephyr into this world and that he joined us at Kenneth Hahn State Park for the family maternity photos. Yoshi certainly loves his […]
It was a hot sticky morning in Los Angeles, California. Unusually warm for December as we hiked to the top of Kenneth Hahn State park, one of my favorite places to shoot. We started a little later than expected and we were trying a brand-new spot for the first time, so the sun acted accordingly, […]
When I walk into the home of the Edgecumbe Family, I can hear the little pitter patter of Cal’s feet running around, a truck in each hand, and a smile on his face. He is wild with life and love, his blonde curls catch the light coming through the window, and his smile is full […]
Caution. Caution. Boudoir. Caution. Caution .Beauty. Empowerment. Support. Love. Confidence. Some people hear the word boudoir and either think it is something dirty and shameful, or they have no idea what it is at all. I am here to tell you what it really is and why it is so important to us at MWP. […]
My parents have never had professional photographs taken, other than at the SEARS Photo Center or our family pictures taken back in the 90’s at church. So when my mom asked me if I would take photographs of her and my dad, I couldn’t say yes fast enough. Mom had already had some practice in […]
Like many other mammas awaiting for the arrival of their newborn, Mahogany feels like pregnancy, motherhood, and all of its phases go by so fast. The moments are fleeting. It is so important to her to capture each moment as her tiny family is about to grow by two more feet. When she was one […]
Our favorite kind of blog is when we can post a love story from the start. Now, we may not have had the privilege of photographing Mandy and Adam before their sweet boy, Wade, was running around, but we certainly had the wonderful opportunity to capture lots of special moment since then! Our adventure started […]
The Trexler Family Getting to know the Trexler Family has been such a wonderful opportunity. They are a fairly reserved family with hearts the size of Texas. It all started when Eric moved to Maryland from Greensburg, PA. He attended Slippery Rock University while his sweetheart, Tracey, went to college at East Stroudsburg University. They […]
Sweet Baby Riley surrounded by flowers that were a part of her parents’ engagement! It’s a glorious day, friends! Know why? Because we have beautiful Riley and her incredible parents, Micki and Jon, along with sweet Sadie, coming at you on the blog today! There was so much love and tenderness at this session that […]
“The experience was incredibly laid back and comfortable from the get to go! Even though I know Megan personally from school we haven’t seen each other for quite some time but where usually there is a first 15 mins or so of awkwardness you all had such a great welcoming energy from the start which is everything you need/want from a photographer. I loved LOVED that there were two of you. Someone was always shooting from every angle which is great but I also didn’t feel as if I had to figure out how to smile and also get Harper to smile. If one was snapping a picture while the other was helping to get Harper to cooperate so I didn’t look like a train wreck in each picture with an awful expression because I was mid tickle with her or saying something LOL.”
