So you want to know more about the real Magan?
Let me indulge you.
Evoke: to bring a feeling, memory, or picture into the mind.
When you think of a memory, you can sometimes remember the scent in the air, the sounds in the wind, and the feelings you once felt. My job is to evoke emotions, from the moments past, allowing you to relive it in photographs. Those are the things I will capture for you.
My passion for photography started way back in high school. Life came crashing down when I lost my best friend in high school and I scrambled to develop every piece of film I had to find just one beautiful, priceless photo of him. I never fully acted on my passion for years, until I had children of my own and realized how important capturing memories is. I went through a few different careers before realizing life is way too short not to do what you love and what you’re good at. Photography and connecting with people came easy to me and it reignited the artistic fire in me that I’ve always had.
My clients are not just clients, they are my friends. I will laugh and cry with you. I’ll fix your hair, give you a pep talk, and I absolutely will NOT tell you to “pretend to laugh”. You read that right, I will make damn sure it’s a real laugh.
At your wedding, I will keep you and your guests having a great time, guaranteed. I can chit chat with your grandma, fluff your dress, and bust down on the dance floor with your drunk uncle, while rappin’ the latest Cardi B; all while capturing the moments you will want to remember forever.
When I’m not hustlin’ photos, I’m taking care of my four crazy, awesome kids. And my psycho puppy, Cookie. So if your kids are acting some type of way, you can bet your ass, I’ve been there done that -… I promise, it’s driving you more crazy than it is me. Parents let’s let them be little, let them be pouty – but, rest assured I’ll remind you to get down on their level, play with them, tickle them, give them butterfly kisses.
Let me capture their personalities, I guarantee it’ll be better than any “perfect” smiling pose you see on Pinterest.
I shoot for the emotion; for the feels.
I don’t care who you are, who you love, or where you came from. I care that you feel included, loved and celebrated. Because love always wins.
I strive to empower you, to make you laugh, and make your time with me meaningful.
So what are you waiting for? Let’s do this!
