Events by Missy is so pleased to feature this weeks blog post on one of our favorite photographers; Jennifer Morais from JMPNY

Here is Jennifer’s Bio ~

I am Jennifer. I’m a 28 year old wife to my husband Joe, a mom to 4 beautiful children, Joseph, Jaclyn, James & Justin….. and a friend to many. After years as a stay-at-home mom…. Ive finally taken my love for photographing my own children to a new level. I officially started up JMPNY in December of ’08. Since then it has turned into something I could have only hoped for. My dream of doing something I loved and felt passionate about had finally become a reality! A wise man once told me…”When you do something you love, you never work a day in your life.” (Thanks dad!)

I have loved taking photographs for MANY years. I can remember as a child seeing my father with HIS camera nearly every day. He was a hobbyist at heart but never anything more. His hobby became my passion. After the birth of my first child, my husband bought me my first digital camera EVER since then.. Ive never put it down. Nor do I want to. =)

With each session I approach it with an open mind. I treat each shoot differently as each family is more dynamic than the next. I try to have fun with my clients. We may do a few nice poses but I try to have you relax and interact as if I’m not there. Playing with each other, laughing… as I capture each moment as it happens. I want to capture the best qualities in you and your family while providing you with non-traditional, fun, modern, sincere & honest portraits that you can be proud of and hold onto for a lifetime.

I am an on-location photographer, meaning I primarily shoot outdoors or in your home. We can meet for a fun session near or far….. in the park, at a beach or the streets of NYC. I hope our session can be a fun mixture of ideas with no boundaries! I look forward to meeting you and your family and creating a friendship that will hopefully last a lifetime.
