about-ohhi

I’m Maggie – a book-loving, puddle-jumping, pancake-flipping photographer. A Midwesterner at heart, I now reside outside of Philly with my husband and three small kids and all of the fun and chaos that comes with them. There’s way too much going on in our lives to carpe every diem, but seizing the moment, capturing it forever, that, I firmly believe in.

The beauty in the moments – simple or extraordinary – deserves to be preserved.

So, Maggie McC Photography, eh?

I like to think of myself as a pretty down to earth, easy-going person … unless its 8:15am and I’m trying to get us all out of the door on time. I fell into photography the way many others do: by my desire to capture the joy and chaos around me as my children grow. I admittedly have a bit of a terrible memory, which is why these images, for me, are so precious. I strive to really capture the NOW – to freeze their little faces, just as they are, in all of their authentic, unique beauty – and I feel honored that other families are inviting me into their own lives to do the same for them.  For examples of my favorite sessions, check out my portfolio.

What kind of photographer are you?
In the photography world I’d fall under the category of natural light, lifestyle photographer. That means no flashes, no extra lighting, no elaborate props or orchestrated backdrops. There are photographers out there who do that so beautifully already. My desire is to capture life as it is: authentic, meaningful, beautiful. Connection and emotion are more important to me than perfection. I will be there to guide you through the entire process with gentle posing and occasional suggestions, but the session will flow naturally. I want to spend time with you and your family and capture images that help you remember how you felt at that particular moment in time – images to be treasured, preserved and proudly shared.
Where will my session be held?
I am a natural light, on-location photographer – no studios for me – so sessions can be held in all kinds of places. I have some proven favorites around Valley Forge Park but would also love to meet you at your favorite outdoor spot, or even in the comfort of your own home. We will work together to choose the location that bests matches your needs. Locations that are a significant distance from King of Prussia may incur an additional travel fee.
What should I wear?
Be comfortable and be yourself. I do recommend staying away from neon colors, bold stripes or clothing with words or large logos. You, your loved ones, and the connections you share should be the stars of the image. Pinterest is a great source of inspiration.
When and how will I get to see my images?
Within three weeks of your session, you will receive a link to a private online gallery of hand selected and edited images from our time together. You will have one month to order any prints, select the images for digital download that are included in your session or purchase any additional digital downloads. You will also be able to share that gallery with friends and family, if you so wish.
What types of sessions do you offer?

FAMILY SESSIONS

An hour-long session anywhere that you choose where we can capture the story of your immediate family at this moment in time. We will have fun, make some memories, and create meaningful images for you to cherish.

  • Your investment is $300 and includes five high-resolution digital image downloads and one 8×10 fine art print. Additional digital downloads are $12 per image or $125 for the entire gallery (a minimum of 30 of the best images will be chosen for the gallery).
  • Extended family sessions are available as well. There is a small fee of $10 per additional person.

PORTRAIT SESSIONS

Business headshots, fine art children’s portraits, special event portraits and more. These sessions can be either 20 minutes or 1 hour long depending on your needs and are for a single person only.

  • Your investment for a 20-minute Mini-Portrait session is $75 and includes one 5×7 fine art print and one high-resolution digital image download. Additional digital downloads are $12 per image or $65 for the entire gallery (a minimum of five poses each in color and black and white). Discounts are available when booking more than one Mini-Portrait session at a time.
  • Your investment for a 60-minute Portrait session is $150 and includes five high-resolution digital image downloads and a gallery credit that can be used towards the purchase of an 8×10 fine art print or a single digital download. Additional digital downloads are $12 per image or $125 for the entire gallery (a minimum of 20 of the best images will be chosen for the gallery).

STORYTELLING SESSIONS

For when you want to capture something specific about your family or a special part of your story together. This could be a milestone birthday, a visit from someone special, a particular family tradition or outing or even just a day in your life at home.

  • The basic package would be an investment of $300 and includes an hour of time, five high-resolution digital image downloads, and one 8×10 fine art print. Additional digital downloads are $12 per image or $125 for the entire gallery (a minimum of 30 of the best images will be chosen for the gallery).
  • Because these sessions are each unique and catered to what you need, the session package details may vary. For example, additional fees may be added if the event runs longer than 60 minutes, or if, during the event, a large family photo or multiple family photos are also requested. There is a lot of flexibility with these sessions and we will work together to create a package that works for both of us.
