Feel the genuine connection.

Show your authentic story.

Preserve your legacy.

Today's fast-paced world has convinced us that we have to do it all and stay busy. Along the way, we miss out on the deeper meaning in little moments that bring us true joy.


How I Can Help

I’m Malerie. I have been down that road that told me I had to give all I have to meaningless daily tasks that left me wondering “what’s the point?” I felt exhausted and empty. I now know what’s important to me and that is helping others see the deeper, meaningful connections in their family with lifestyle photography. I help families tell their unique stories in an authentic way that preserves their legacy and reminds them about the true joys of life, even long after the memories fade.

I don’t pose families in stiff, awkward or fake ways. Instead, I facilitate authentic connection and notice the beauty in who you really are.

I cannot say enough about my experience with JJP. I will admit I was intimidated by thought of having someone come over to my house just 2 weeks after having my son. But the love and peace that seemed to surround my experience with Malerie was one I will never forget. She made my husband and I feel comfortable, confident, and totally stress free. I now have absolutely stunning photos to treasure forever. I cannot thank you enough.

Omg I just looked at our gallery and I literally cried happy tears. I’m so in love with every photo. Your style is EXACTLY what I wanted! I don’t know how I will ever choose!...I’m so so soooo pleased with your work! I’ve never cried looking at photos from my previous maternity sessions but all the candid shots and little details you captured are EVERYTHING. I was a little worried when we left that we wouldn’t have very many “good” photos I could use because M was so uncooperative. Boy was I WRONG!”
