Who am I?
I am Margo Stewart, the photographer behind madigan.e.photography. I have always had a creative side to me. Whether it be sewing, or crafting, or scrapbooking (way back when scrapbooking wasn’t even cool!). I’ve always had a love for photography, even if it wasn’t really established. I remember going to the San Diego zoo as a little girl and my sister and I both had our own disposable cameras. My sister took a picture of the flamingo’s and I started to do the same thing. My step-mom stopped me and a bit of a tiff ensued when she told me that I didn’t need to take the same shot that my sister had taken. I begged to differ. There was no way we were seeing the same thing in the viewfinder. My shot would surely be different than hers.
The disposable camera flamingo shot didn’t turn out wonderfully, but that love of finding the perfect shot through my viewfinder only increased with the birth of each of my four children. Then in December of 2006 my wonderful husband gifted me with my first DSLR and my love of photography really took off.
When I get behind the lens my main goal is to capture you. You in your natural element. Not your normal posed shot where I say “cheese” and eveyone puts on a fake smile. I want to see you interacting with other friends and family in the shot. I want to see you relaxed in front of my lens, as though I wasn’t even there.
I look forward to working with you. Smile! Just don’t say cheese.
