In the dictionary, you will find two definitions of the word “MOJO” – “personal magnetism or charm” and “a magic charm or spell”. A great photo captures the personality and charm of a subject. That’s what we strive to do – capture your MOJO!
A perspective many people share is You Only Live Once (YOLO). Mojo Studios exists because of that idea. Just over fifteen years ago, Pat found out he had kidney cancer. In his battle to overcome the disease, he decided then he would live life to the fullest and pursue his dreams. One of those dreams was to take his passion for photography share his gift with people who value great photography. Thus Mojo Studios was born! At Mojo Studios, we’ve formulated what we do to give our clients an experience that is amazing, creative, fun, and unique as well as products that are beautiful and lasting.
We want you to look back at your pictures and not see a boring old photo that looks like everyone else’s photos. No, instead we want them to be something you are proud to display on your wall rather than bury in a drawer. Someday, we want YOUR kids to see your pictures and have them tell you how amazing you looked! If you want the same boring old picture just to send to Grandma, we’re not for you. If you want images that are vibrant, exciting, beautiful, and unique, we’re your photography studio.
Mojo Studios offers a variety of quality products such as luxury art albums, fine art canvases, framing, gallery mount wall art, and contemporary metal, and standout mountings. Naturally, we also offer gift prints (e.g. 5×7, 8×10, wallets, etc).
Our most popular experiences combine the amazing looks we capture in the studio with great images of you at your favorite places. These sessions are for those who want their photos captured at locations that are memorable and meaningful to them. It is for someone who wants a senior photo experience that will be truly unique, fun, and memorable! For the truly most amazing experience, try one of our YOLO experiences.
