About

“There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.”
— Ansel Adams

Hello! Welcome to MJ Photographics! I’m Emily, an artist and photographer based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I have many passions in life but photography has been with me since I got my very first 35mm camera for Christmas at the of age nine! For me photographs are physical memories and I love capturing those memories for my clients and myself, whether it’s a family photo or an individual portrait or headshot or part of a personal artistic project.

With MJ Photographics I take on a wide variety of projects but mainly I specialize in performer and career headshots. In addition to my photography work I am active actor and director in the film and theatre industries, so I have a unique perspective on performer headshots and the requirements of the industry. I really enjoy photographing people. It’s an interesting and different way to get to know someone. I know not everyone loves having their photo taken so I’m always trying to find new ways to help put my clients at ease in front of the camera.

I also love working with families and couples to capture important life moments and genuine images of your lives together whether that’s a family event, engagement shots or small weddings.
