Maggie Takes Pix | About

Your boutique experience starts with our initial consultation. How do you want to be photographed? We'll meet to plan your session: from location to wardrobe, all the details will be unique to you. At your photo shoot we'll polish you up for the camera with professional hair styling and makeup application, giving you the confidence to know you look great... and like yourself. We'll have fun taking amazing photos - enough to fill a book! About a week later, I'll share the best of the best and help you select the ones you love most. 

All service points are included in the $149 Signature Portrait Session creation fee. Bring a friend or family member for an additional $99, and they'll receive all the same perq's (and if your guest is a man or child not needing makeover services, they can be added in at the end of the session for no additional fee). All products are sold separately a la carte, beginning at $99. More info is available here. Contact me to schedule your no-obligation consultation: 434-226-0365 or

Gift Certificates are available in person or online.


Hi! I'm Margaret "Maggie" McCanna, and I can't wait to photograph you

Why? Because printed photographs of you are priceless. I've spoken with women who tell me they "don't look good" in photographs - and it's just not true (with proper posing and lighting). I also find women are often taking pictures of their families, but are never in them! No matter your age or size, your family loves you, and they want to see you in photos. My goal is to create personal art that you want to print and share, in a style that celebrates your true beauty.

More about me personally? I am a mother, a wife, a Navy veteran, a former teacher, a business administrator, a cat lover... and I've been a photographer for over 40 years (professionally since 2010). Let's get together soon!

Here's my calendar link to make finding time easy.
