Experience | Service | Heart

Hi - I'm Margaret McCanna, also known as Maggie.

I've been a photographer for... well... decades, professionally since 2010, and I help multifaceted women look good in their photographs.

I'm here for the mom who is always behind the camera and never in the pictures....

I'm here for the female entrepreneur who is always working in her business, but needs to work on her business. 

My forté is in creating images that capture your personality in a relaxed and carefree session, from beauty and boudoir to business and branding.


I’m a full-service boutique photographer, working with you at every step.

  • Before: We'll meet for an in-home consultation to collaborate on style and desired outcomes of your session.
  • During: Relax and enjoy being cared for. I’ll guide you through posing and expression, capturing the photographs you've dreamed of.
  • After: I’ll guide you as you choose from the best images, edit your selections to your liking, and deliver quality products to show off your fabulous pictures.


My Session Information PDF shows what your photo session with me might look like. Once you are ready for some great photographs, let's talk about celebrating your life's true beauty in images you love. You can schedule a Zoom call online, reach me via email at [email protected], or contact me by phone/text at (434) 226-0365.


How do you want to be photographed?
