Brief Summary
At M&JB Foto, we love to make sure your portraits are ones you will be proud to display in your home and share with your family & friends. We want to capture a moment in your child's life and not force one. We have a very stylized "photo-journalistic approach" and pride ourselves on making sure you and your family look the best!

A little about our team:

Matthew: Photographer

I love strong coffee and riding my bike; but most importantly, I love my camera.
I graduated from Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA in 2009 with a BA in Commercial and Advertising Photography. While in school, I had the opportunity to work with many amazing photographers, interning and assisting on fashion shoots in New York, Los Angeles and Las Vegas. This experience brought me to where I am today; working as the Lead Photographer for a well-known clothing company based in Orange County, CA.

Although I shoot fashion from 9-5, my true passion lies in photographing babies and children…and your beautiful family. This is where I couldn't do this alone. Enter: Jaime…
I met Jaime while I was still in school, and quickly fell in love. Not just with her smile, but also with her amazing talent as a savvy businesswoman. Being the artistic one, I valued this attribute in her - not knowing then, that it would play a huge role in this business today. Jaime loves to back me up as my second shooter, and she amazes me more and more each day, as her photographic talents improve.

We work together to capture memories with your family, that only happen…once in a lifetime.

Jaime: Studio Manager & Photographer

I love to love, love to smile and I love to have FUN!
Usually, you will find me with a camera in one hand, and a calculator in the other.
I have worked for over 10 years as an office manager, bookkeeper and assistant but it wasn't until I met Matthew that my love for numbers turned into a love for composition in a photograph. He saw this spark and got me my first digital point and shoot camera. If it wasn't for that - I don't think I'd be where I am today.

Matthew quickly helped me realize that the quality of life is what matters most and taking fotos doesn't just have to be a fun hobby - it can be my life. OUR life.
Although I love the freedom of taking pictures, I still have a passion for business, which is why I love my role as Studio Manager. Not only do I get to balance our checkbook, file our taxes and schedule our appointments, but I also get to assist Matthew taking beautiful fotos. It's the best of both worlds - and I wouldn't want it any other way!
