Working with McDonald Photography was an excellent experience. Work was delivered on time and exceeded my expectations. She did work for my online knee sock company where she held a photo shoot with about 10 models. She sought out the models and organized the whole photo shoot. All I had to do was contact her about what I wanted and she delivered without much help from me at all. I would definitely recommend any company that is in need of photos for their company to contact Jennifer at Photos by McDonald. Highly professional and the photos were magnificent. Thanks Jennifer!!

I found Jennifer on a whim after searching for a children’s photographer. I wanted my daughter’s pictures to be different than the traditional photo sessions. Was I ever pleased after my daughter’s newborn session! She did an amazing job. She was extremely professional and excellent with kids. She is always open to any request I may have for different shots and is very creative. As a family we have seen Jennifer on seven different occasions to date. She even caught wonderful shots of my quick three year old son! She is just plain great behind the camera! I wish I would have found her earlier.

Mike and I are looking at the pictures you’ve posted so far and he looked at me and said, “Well Lisa, I’m actually really glad you talked me into getting a photographer because these are really good!”

My husband and I couldn’t have chosen a nicer, more affordable, or more fun photographer than Jennifer McDonald! We had such a blast working with her and her assistant! They worked so well together and were able to capture the most amazing shots at our wedding reception!! I cannot wait to use JM Photography again in the future!

I can’t get over all of your photos!!! The hospital photos turned out perfectly!!! And the ones you posted from yesterday are gorgeous!!! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!!!!!!

To describe Jennifer as “talented” is an understatement. Jennifer is passionate and loves what she does, which is evident in every single picture she has ever taken for me. Her technical knowledge of photography is superb and she truly does have a gift when it comes to working with lighting (both natural and artificial). But what makes Jennifer stand apart is her ability to truly capture her subject’s personalities in each image. She isn’t just taking a picture of a smiling face; she is preserving a moment of your life.  There’s a reason why I keep going back to Jennifer – she is good at what she does. She is patient, understanding and just an all-around good person. I treasure the photos she has taken for me and would recommend her to anyone.

Everyone has already said all that I could possibly comment on; your patience, style, technique…it’s all just so YOU! And to say that you’re wonderful, is just well, one word that so many others could only begin to capture. God has truly given you an awe-inspiring eye for things of beauty!

Thank you for all your time and dedication to capturing the moment!

After losing a significant amount of weight, I decided I wanted to
treat myself somehow, and what better way than to get photos taken of
the “new me”? I was nervous at first about being the sole subject of
a photo shoot, but Jennifer put me completely at ease, both in her
studio and “out and about” in Holly, where she snapped tons of
pictures of me in different outfits in front of interesting downtown
landmarks. She has a definite skill for finding unique backdrops and
a gift for coaxing out the best expressions in her subjects. When I
saw the finished product, I was blown away. I’ll never forget my day
as a “model” — it was a blast!

Thanks so much for the fun shoot that Brittany had with you- our trash the dress plan didn’t work out due to the weather but I think we made great use of the day and got in so many great shots. We loved your selection of hats- in fact the one turned out to be one of our favorite pictures ever! You were easy to work with and so much fun- we look forward to many more photoshoots with you- until you get sick of seeing us anyway-LOL!

Thanks again!

Having our photos taken by Jennifer has truly been an enjoyable experience. She’s very relaxing to be around, and she was happy to work with us to get just the type of photos we were looking for. My 1-1/2 year old son feels comfortable around her, which results in some great, natural-looking shots that really portray him in all of his toddler glory.

I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful job (once again!)you’ve done
on our family pictures. The time and care that you take is something that
could never be matched by a chain studio and truly comes out in the
photos. I know that a family of five, two of which are unruly toddlers,
is very stressful but you handle it patiently and always with a smile,
keeping all of us at ease and making the whole experience very enjoyable.
I can’t wait until April when we will be back for Cal’s birthday pictures!
The Butts family will be loyal customers for life!

Thanks again!

I can’t believe it’s almost been a year!

It’s been so great watching our little angel grow just by flipping through
your photos. You really make her personality, and her eyes, shine. Every
time we come to your studio, I can’t wait to get the images back so I can
see my funny little cherub with her big smile. You’re the only person, aside
from her Dad and I, that can get her to laugh and giggle like that and
that’s just the best thing to look at.
It’s no wonder I have to buy new picture frames each time she comes, I can’t
ever bear to take the old ones down!

Dear Jenni,

I just can’t get over the pictures! This is like the 6th time I have sat down and gone through them today! You really captured some amazing things. I cried again! Just looking at Tony and the look of love and adoration on his face. I mean, it’s not like I didn’t know or anything, but you caught it in its purest glow. Not everyone would have been able to do that. Other photographers would have been posing him more and not letting it just BE, and you did and look at that!
And capturing me at my ripest! 🙂 That is so special, too! I will always have these beautiful pictures of me when I was pregnant. I am SO glad we were able to do it.
Thank you so much, Jenni! I can’t wait for Jasper to enter this world and have you take pictures of him! I can only imagine how amazing THOSE will turn out!
Melanie and Tony (and baby Jasper!)

Dear Jennifer,

We absolutely LOVE the photos, they are fantastic! Thank you so much for your time, you did a great job working with her, especially when she was kind of cranky! She slept the entire rest of the day after that. 🙂
