Father’s Day is coming up soon! For Mother’s Day I posted the blog a little too late according to some people, so this time I wanted to post more in advance of Father’s Day.
If you have not captured moments recently with you father, may I highly recommend that you do. You never really know when may be your last Father’s Day with them. Not trying to scare you or anything but I have been close to those moments with my dad’s health struggles. I have certainly had my ups and downs with my dad but I know that one day when he has passed, I will have his photos to look back on and to remember him by. Something strange about the memory, or at least my memory, is that it seems to ...

I have changed the name of my company from MarJen Photography. I have had the name for the last two years and at the time it was relevant but now it is not. I have done some soul searching over the last few months and talked to a few people about it. I was challenged by Alyssa from Chasing Galilee to express my faith through my work and through my art. I was reading the bible online when I came across some verses, Colossians 3:23 and 24. The website had the bible in many versions and I found a version of the verses that went like this, “Whatever you might do, work from the soul, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that you will receive from the Lord the reward of the inheritance. You serve the Lord Christ!” That really spoke to me. From The Soul. Other versions said, happily, joyfully or heartily but this one sounded so much more, it hit me. From The Soul. I realise that I will be taking pictures of paying clients and that I will be doing the work for a person but through my work for that person I want to be able to say that I did it from the soul and as to Lord. I hope that this comes through in the photography. The funny thing about that is, Sol, which is a Spanish word that sounds the same as ‘Soul’ means sun or sunlight. I hope that my light shines that all might see His good works through me and that I don’t forget to give God the glory and the recognition as Matthew 5:16 says.
I grew up with just my mom, whom I love very much. She has always been a hero and somebody I have looked up to. She is somebody that I learned so much from and even though we don’t agree on everything I do model a lot after her and the principles she brought me up on like being selfless (to be best of my ability), keeping an open door and open chair at the kitchen table, and not being afraid to show emotion. My mother-in-law is also somebody I admire , not only because she gave me my wonderful husband but....
