About MDWRIGGS Photography

So many people ask me what the heck is an MDWRIGGS. So, I will give you a small breakdown so you can see how it came to be. Not that it matters, not that you are asking but I need SOMETHING to write in this section and so this is it. M is for Michelle :) Simple enough right? D is for my maiden name *unimportant really* WRIGGS is just a short nickname from my married last name. Those who know me will appreciate the shortened version because its a fun tricky last name to say and spell :) Thats it, there you have it.

A New Year | Ottawa Valley Portrait Photographer

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2012

Happiest New Year to all of my friends, family and wonderful clients I have come to know in the past year.  2011 has been a great success for me professionally as well as personally and for that I am truly blessed.

2012 is the beginning of my 4th year in business in the Petawawa/Ottawa Valley area.  Each year brings on new challenges, new surprises and new love for what I do.  If I am not pushing myself to learn new things, I become bored.  This is FANTASTIC news for my clients because it means that I am growing as a photographer and able to offer a new perspective, new technique or just my own personal style to your photographs.  Style is something that is very important to me.   Its something that comes from within and if it has to be copied then it isn’t a personal style. Its just an interpretation of someone elses work.  Flattering and frustrating at the same time.

I have some fun things coming up in 2012.  I am attending a workshop that I have been anxious to attend for about three years.  I pick and choose my workshops carefully based on my style and what I love about photography.  I have attended 2 major workshops and I await my third coming up in the next two months.  I look forward to sharing my new skills with my past, current and future clients.

I’m so extremely grateful for all of the love and support I have been given by my family and friends.  If not for the patience of my husband I wouldn’t be doing this.  He knows all too well the countless hours of editing I put in at the computer.  My wonderful boys who although they think I’m “playing” on the computer … do understand that sometimes mom needs to take a few hours in the daytime to get some work done :)

I’ve put together a small picture.  “A Year in Pictures”.

I had an external and a computer crash earlier this year but I have one picture from most sessions on here.  If I’ve missed your family, it is likely because I have lost some older sessions.  It isn’t because I didn’t love you dearly :)

Wishing you all wonderful things in 2012 and I continue to appreciate all of your support for a successful 2012 for MDWRIGGS PHOTOGRAPHY.




I am often asked about my hours and I just wanted to elaborate.  I have a little boy who is still in school part time.  Once he begins school full time, I will open up more hours for sessions.  Currently from Spring to Fall, I generally book 4-6 weeks in advance.  Newborns are different as I am able to book daytime spots when my own babies are in school.  Thank you for your continued support and I look forward to the day where I can take on more frequent bookings.  At this time I will take on approx 1-2 sessions per week.


YOUR Sincerely Blessed Photographer :)
